Obama repeatedly mispronounces Aung San Suu Kyi. “…Obama repeatedly mispronounced the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel laureate and former political prisoner who has led the struggle for a free and democratic Burma.” “…also botched the name of his official host, Burma’s reformist new president, Thein Sein.” Seriously, the boob doesn’t know how to pronounce “corpseman”, why the hell would you think he could pronounce “Aung San Suu Kyi”?

If President Romney was mispronouncing names it would be the lead story everywhere. The word “gaffe” would be used to the point of puking.

I guess the teleprompter didn’t have phonetic spelling of their names!

Yet again, it is obvious why his adoring-media-butt-lickers refer to him as the smartest man in the world. He continues to prove how intuitive they all are as well.

I really hate the dinosaur media. Here’s hoping they fade away soon.

Looks like there’s another opening at the WH for a teleprompter writer.

I want to know where all the feminists are on this one? If you see the pictures taken during the meeting, they are revolting. He was clearly pandering to her because she is just a fragile woman. It almost looked like he was going to pick her up and kiss her forehead, with this sickening “isn’t she cu-u-u-u-u-ute” smirk on his face.

Here are just a few of the pictures: http://www.theblaze.com/blog/2012/11/19/awkward-photos-of-the-day-overly-affectionate-obama-terrorizes-burma/comment-page-2/?corder=desc#comments

Notice she is desperately trying to pull the hell away and still be polite! Anybody with a real brain wouldhave had the sense to study and learn the proper pronunciation of someone’s name, especially his host and an honored guest. Obama may really be smart. All the genius types I know do a half ass job on everything because they bore so easily. Accounts for all the golf and hoops breaks.

She doesn’t look comfortable, that’s for sure. I wonder if he was violating the social norms of the host country.

He was violating MY social norms! I don’t want some strange guy pawing all over me like that! I don’t care how famous is is or how powerful he is. Her body language is exactly what mine would have been – just before I slapped him. seriously – is Obama on drugs? Honest question! Because he is not “normal”.

Just to remember back to the days when we had a president with true class who had a mutually admiring relationship with a powerful woman, I did this search: http://tinyurl.com/cvjqk6r I kind of miss the old days!

Did you get a bittersweet reaction when yo looked at the images? It was like a “Hallmark Moment” for me!

It was an “EEEWWW don’t touch me! Don’t get anywhere near me with those lips! EEEWWWWWWW *gross*” moment for me. Complete with defensive hand gestures maybe a few kicks of the legs…you know, as if I just saw a frog or toad. (Or Ghosty saw a spider :) )

LOL! I agree. But I meant the Reagan-Thatcher pics! Maggie reminds me of my mother. Elegant, though my Mom’s face was softer and prettier. But she had that same “iron-lady” aura around her!

Oh *those* images…*blush*…You know at least Reagan knew how to be a gentleman and understood the boundaries of personal space. Thatcher… I admire how she was never afraid to speak the truth, and she did it without being nasty or insulting, she was classy and polite even when reprimanding someone.

The Reagan – Thatcher pictures depict statesmanship at its highest level. What we have now is a vile, rude, common street hustler pretending he knows what he is doing and who believes that he is as charming as the fawning press tells him he is.

Probably. He’s kissing her and he is a non related male. That would have offended my Dad, who was 100% American, so I imagine in a country predominately Muslim, that would be verboten.

Photo one caption should be her thinking “your deodorant didn’t make it!”

Photo 2, “Get away from me fish-lips!”

Photo 3, “EWWWW, get your tongue out of my ear!”

In all 3 pics, you can see that she is skeeved by his inappropriate touching. I’m surprised that he wasn’t briefed by his protocol people how to act, unless his protocol people are from Chicago.

It is considered rude to touch a person’s head, because it is the “highest” point of the body

Apparently, unlike liberals, all the lies in the world can´t fool her nose.

He doesn´t care enough to pronounce it, he would fart in her face if he had that much imagination, he is just there because somehow, the local governement caused butthurt to the one in Washington for whatever reasons, he can´t lead that slide and thus, let the cries of the butthurt go unanswered, as usual, regardless of how many skid marks that leaves on an already throughly stained US gov reputation.
Beyond that, thou, to him she is just the miserable human symbole for some pathetic beggares of his good will, in a piss poor third-world country he wouldn´t find on a world map and loudly occupy wall street uppon, if he had eaten mexican.
He know the majority of his voters, even the liberals pretending to care about democracy in order to feel good about themselves, are just that considerate of it and of her feelings.
