Bumbling Obama Misspells “R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” White House Transcript Scrubs Blunder

Posted by on Mar 07, 2014 at 11:12 am

We’re on Year 23 of laughing at Dan Quayle for tacking an “e” at the end of “potato” even though the classroom teacher had spelled it that way. But never mind the facts, we’ve got a Republican to laugh at. Meanwhile, the moron who pronounces “corpsman” as “corpseman” and is widely hailed in his own mind as the greatest thinker and orator of his generation can’t spell a simple word.

To cover up his idiocy, his minions helpfully purge the monumental gaffe from the history books as if it never happened. So stop laughing, haters.

The White House stenographer appears to have given President Obama a little too much “respect.”

Introducing soul legend Aretha Franklin at a White House performance Thursday night, the president flubbed the spelling of her signature song.

“When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her…” Obama said, prompting laughter from the crowd.

The president’s face betrayed that he had misspelled the anthem, but he did not stop to correct himself before adding that Franklin “had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African-Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved.

Why would the second coming of Einstein stop and acknowledge his blunder? That would show him to be a human being.

But anyone reading the official transcript of the event provided by the White House would have had no idea of the president’s mistake. In that version, the president correctly spells out the word.

“When Aretha first told us what “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.” meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved,” the White House transcript reads.

It’s not the first time the official White House transcript has edited presidential misstatements. During the state visit of French President  Francois Hollande last month, Obama referred to French political scientist Alexis de Tocqueville as “Alex.” But the White House transcript released shortly after used the Frenchman’s correct first name.

Was there a teleprompter to blame? Meanwhile, it was nice to see he got a night to relax before his upcoming vacation.

Revel in his idiocy:

    Welcome to Pyongyang on the Potomac. Dear Leader’s infallibility MUST be preserved at all costs!

    Obama has never been more than a sock puppet.

    All of his campaigns in Illinois and nationally were fixed. Candidates who opposed him magically had their narratives destroyed by the liberal media as stories arose about their personal failings shortly before ballots were cast.

    The media systematically destroyed Palin. The WaPo went after McCain and Romney by painting them as they never were. The skids were greased.

    It’s not just that Obama is not especially bright…it’s that the facts of his life have been covered up…and anyone who writes or talks about them is a racist. It’s been this way at least since 2007.

    Google the long form birth certificate…without question…it is CGI, created in nine layers. Obvious phony.

    His social security number that someone failed to scrub from his state senate days…originally given to a Harrison J. Brounel…of Hartford, Ct….in 1933. He has the ss number of a dead man.

    His dealings with Tony Rezko can’t be touched. The financing of his house in Chicago is top secret.

    His draft registration form has a time stamp configuration no other form from that era contains.

    His college grades a national secret. One suspects that his SAT and LSAT are embarrassingly low. Educationally…this guy was likely affirmative action all the way though his academic career.

    His missing passport and college admission records. His mother’s strange relationship with Obama Sr. Who may or may not be his real father.

    Nothing about his guy’s past holds up…and the media remains strangely silent. Like the Kennedy assassination, I think that in fifty years the truth will slowly leak out…but it’s goning to be a long wait.
