Teleprompter Boy Wishes Us A Happy “Cinco de Quatro”

May 6, 2009

Let me preamble by pointing out that if George Bush had done this, it would have been sufficient for a blatantly dishonest and biased media to broadcast the footage everywhere in order to create the narrative that Bush was hopelessly stupid, and it would have inspired a four-part CNN miniseries questioning why President Bush was so hostile and so ignorant regarding Hispanic culture.  Mainstream talking heads would have crawled out of myriad holes to opine on this shocking display of stupidity and insensitivity, and “journalists” would have produced dozens of offended Mexicans to document their outrage for mass consumption.  Many would discover some deeply hidden and obscure racist meaning to “cinco de quatro” a la “macaca.”

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s joke wasn’t lost in translation—even though he referred to a Cinco de Mayo celebration as “Cinco de Cuatro.”Obama jumbled his words as he welcomed guests to the White House to observe the Mexican holiday, sending the crowd into laughter before he referred to the day correctly.

“Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro—Cinco de Mayo at the White House,” said Obama, in what appeared to be an attempt to note they were celebrating on the fourth of May instead of the fifth.

Cinco de cuatro means “five of four” in Spanish.

It continues to amaze and astound me that the mainstream media bask in the glory of all that is Obama and characterize him as the most brilliant man who ever lived.  Bush used his teleprompter ONLY for major speeches; Obama takes his teleprompter EVERYWHERE HE GOES and can’t even seem to successfully say, “Good morning” without being able to read it from some screen.  And Bush was the stupid one?

I mean, Bush had his share of awkward constructions, but at least they were HIS awkward constructions.  Without his teleprompter, Obama is like THIS:

And like this:

We no longer have a president; we have “the Teleprompter of the United States” (TOTUS).

obama_teleprompter1Let’s realize something.  TOTUS might be brilliant; TOTUS might be inspiring; but Barack Husseing Obama is a first class pompous idiot.  The same media that relentless attacked and characterized Bush for his every foible is too dishonest and too biased to do the same with their new messiah.
