  1. Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage
    By Nile Gardiner World Last updated: November 19th, 2012

    Barack Obama is already blundering again on the world stage, with the kind of gaffes that would have been plastered on the front page of The New York Times if they had been committed by George W. Bush when he was in the White House. Obama's first term was littered with foreign policy gaffes, and there is every chance the second term will be more of the same.

    On his trip to Asia this week, President Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. As The Associated Press reports:

    As Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly.

    Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting.

    Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate's name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.

    To be fair, I would have just called her Soo.

    Four more years of Obama embarrassing the USA. Obamabots must be proud.

    What am I saying, of course they're proud. They're too fucking stupid to know they should be embarrassed.
