Smartest Man In The World Condemns Storming Of “English Embassy”

Obviously, he goofed, just like with corpsman, 57 States with 1 more to go, and so many others, because he is just so darned super mega awesome smart. As Jammie Wearing Fools points out, just imagine the nonstop complaints from the media had Bush 43 or Sarah Palin done this

(Heritage) It is gratifying to see President Barack Obama condemn the disgraceful storming of the British Embassy in Tehran by thugs acting at the behest of the Iranian regime. After all, Obama has been notoriously slow in the past to criticise the brutal actions of the Iranian government after initially extending the hand of friendship to it. But did he really need to make another embarrassing foreign policy gaffe while doing so?

In a press conference this evening, the president referred in stumbling fashion to the “English Embassy” in Iran instead of the British Embassy. One can only imagine the kind of howls of derision that would greet any presidential contender if that kind of basic error were made before, say, the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. You can watch the video above.

In case the president is unaware, England forms part of Great Britain, which also includes Scotland and Wales, though not Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. There is no such thing as an “English” embassy anywhere in the world, and there hasn’t been one for several centuries.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by this latest slip-up by President Obama. After all he recently described France as America’s closest ally, and famously declared that he has traveled to no less than 57 states. But it would be nice if the leader of the free world bothered to look at a map once in a while, or even paid a visit to the British Embassy in Washington, currently housing the Churchill bust that Mr. Obama unceremoniously threw out of the Oval Office soon after his inauguration.

All in all, not a huge deal in terms of things Obama has gotten wrong…..wasting $850 billion dollars on non-existent shovel ready jobs/failing “green companies and signing legislation that destroys our healthcare system stand out….but, it shows the double standard of the 90% liberal media. Michele Bachmann was vilified for her John Wayne/Waterloo reference for days, yet, POTUS Obama (NMP, PINO) will be given a free pass on “English Embassy”.
