Some more of that Obama eloquence

Our POTUS (President of the United States) was belting out yet another speech yesterday with the help of TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States), but two things quickly became clear: Obama had not rehearsed this speech, and he has a serious lack of knowledge of the military he commands. Watch and listen:

A Navy Corpsman is a medic who accompanies Marines during combat operations. The battles in the Pacific during World War II were especially inundated with cries of "Corpsman! Corpsman!" from wounded Marines.

The one thing is that the Marines were yelling "Core-man!" not "Corpse-man!" Good job TOTUS.

Let's just hope someone briefed Obama on this gaffe before he goes off and makes a speech in which he mentions the U.S. Marine Corpse.

Good Day to You, Sir

I think he needs to watch a few war flicks. Yeah, like he speaks creole. He could start by watching this:

My dad was a corpsman - 1968, Tet Offensive, Vietnam at An Hoa and Phu Bai. The video of the President really pisses me off.
Perhaps the Pres needs to watch this:
Can't wait till Obama is no longer Pres.

George again.

I find it amazing that wounded soldiers hardly with the correct pronunciation on their minds were able to say this correctly. Obama doesn't try to do things right that he doesn't care about.
