    So this is our brilliant Harvard educated man whose education and sophistication is such a breath of fresh air compared to the

    Obama pronouced corpsman as "corpseman" twice within the same speech. That's not a slip; that's your president not knowing how to pronounce an everyday word, albeit a military word, which might just explain it right there.

    No big deal, you say? Well, harken back to the endless rants about Bush and his "nuc-u-lar" and "tourist attack" mispronunciations - which I dogpiled on, too, because it was funny - and ask yourself, why so little is made by the left of Obama's absolute dependence on teleprompters and his obvious lack of basic high school knowledge of history and economics.

    I'm just sayin'.
    OMG...hey erod....did you happen to check the pronunciation at webster's? you'd better, before you continue to spout this bull****. check the audio, too, it's really enlightening.

    Main Entry: corps·man
    Pronunciation: \ˈkȯr(z)-mən\
    Function: noun
    Date: 1901
    1 : an enlisted man trained to give first aid and minor medical treatment
    2 : a member of a government-sponsored service corps

    I wonder how he'd pronouce other military terms, like sword or lieutenant.
    see my post on pronunciation please.

    Had this been Bush, any one bringing it up would have been called retarded. Why should it be different now?

    so same nonsense different retards?


    Fact is, the media portrayed bush as a moron, its still repeated today. I don't think Obama is a moron, however, given his gaffes I think his intelligence is equal to bush or within the same ballpark....

    Did you miss the OP? The word is indeed pronounced Kor z man.... not as Barry did, Korps man.

    I mean really, did Barry think they were dead?

    The left widely used Bush's pronunciation of "nuclear" as evidence of substandard intelligence. Let's see what they have to say about the chosen one.
