Americans also don't use apostrophes incorrectly.

Pakistan is wrong by Obama. http://inogolo.com/audio/Pakistan_3639.mp3

Iran is correct as I can detect a long "e" in the link below.

He does not say Taliban correctly though.

So many even educated Americans just can't speak, punctuate, form a sentence, spell (...... and the list goes on) ...... properly.

Now go to the dictionary and look up "ubiquitous" since I have already spelled it for you.

I admire the person that takes the time and care to use correct grammar and pronunciation. As I stated in an earlier response to this post...I am fed up with 8 long, tortured years of N-U-C-U-L-A-R.

I am beginning to understand why there are still some Bush/McCain supporters out here. You relate to Bush's low functioning mentality and very likely, McCain's war mongering. You are indeed Neanderthal!

Bush's pronunciation of nuclear drives me nuts too, but that's the Texan coming out in him. Amerka drives me nuts too.

I don't think he says Taliban correctly though.
So, if he's wrong about the pronunciation...then shame on him!

And if he's right about the pronunciation...he's a moooooooooosluhm!

Ah, gotta love all these "he's wrong either way" assertions. The mark of a truly open mind and all that..........

I don't think that the Muslim school there was concerned with the correct pronunciation of pakistan and iran and iraq.
Seriously, WTF? My husband went to Catholic school (because his parents made him, obviously), and today he's loosely a Buddhist. Kinda. Sorta.

When he's religious at all.

Actually, he prefers to refer to God as The Force.

But I'll bet if pressed, he'd be able to pronounce Nebuchadnezzar perfectly. He just wouldn't know who the flark it was.

And yes. He wore the regulation uniform to school. You had to. There was no other option.

The fact that Obama's parents dressed him up in the garb they wanted to see him in for a photo (how many of us never experienced those moments growing up?) or that he was shoved into a particular type of school for a few years doesn't mean that at the age of 9, 10, 11, etc. he was begging them, "Please, please, Grandma, can't I go to a moooooooooosluhm school? OHHHHHHHHH PLEASE I'll do ANYTHING, I'll wash the dishes for a week..."

I mean people. Please.

Grow up.

I was just letting the poster know he pronounces Iran correctly and Pakistan incorrectly. It doesn't have anything to do with me thinking he's a Muslim or a Christian.
