    VIDEO: Obama Mispronounces "Corpsman" At Prayer Breakfast

    RealClearPolitics - Video - Obama Mispronounces "Corpsman" At Prayer Breakfast

    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'.

    This is as silly as the thread on Michelle Obama's shoes.

    Why? It's not like he's in charge of the military or something.

    No, you're not "just sayin". This is a perfect example of hyper-partisan nitpicking. It's typical of people who cannot debate topics or provide any meaningful insight into anything on a message board.

    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.

    I would agree if I didn't have to constantly hear how refreshingly sophisticated and NUANCED Obama is from the left all the time.

    I wonder how he'd pronouce other military terms, like sword or lieutenant.

    It looks like you answered your own question. He wasn't in the military. I don't know how to pronounce the word.

    You don't hear that from the left. You hear it from the right-wing pundits you listen to.
