    Re: VIDEO: Obama Mispronounces "Corpsman" At Prayer Breakfast

    Can I ask any of the grammar Nazis why the "p" is silent in that word?

    It was spelled that way so we could weed out the idiots. Same reason we call it the Marine Corps or the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Gotta weed out the idiots somehow and look who took the bait. The Idiot and Chief. Looks more like Bush every day.

    That would be "May I ask any of the grammar Nazis why the "p" is silent in that word?", if you don't mind.

    Yeah, but the difference is how we say car up here in Boston is the right way!

    Kidding aside, this is a big deal because why? I mean most consider me highly educated, but I try to avoid using big words because I have a hard time saying certain words. So, can I put a video on youtube about how I can not say certain words and we all make fun of me too?

    People have always said Obama was a highly intellegent man. Well I suspected all along that he is an idiot. Everyone knows the ps is silent in corps. Its corpsman not corpseman. HA, what an idiot.

    Now before any of you point out that my spelling ain't so good and that people who live in glasses shouldn't throw stones. I am not the president. I admit I am an idiot.

    That's EXACTLY what the left says.
    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

    I watched people do the exact same thing to Bush for 8 years. It was childish and silly then, it's childish and silly now.
    No offense, but the thread probably could have stopped right there and had a nice retirement home on a beach somewhere

    Hey, its leftennant...get it right

Heck, I didn't know that word existed until this thread got started.
    .....really?
