I just think there are bigger things to worry /complain about, then every time a politician mispronounces something.

Notice how the Sgt. Romesha is leaning away from Obama as he tries to put his hand on his arm? He is not impressed.

I wonder if "Corpse Men" remove "Sharpnel"? If so, the soldier would have to be evacuated back to the 53 states.

"Corpseman" was a bigger deal because he obviously doesn't know the word (he kept reading it wrong.) But this was a simple misreading.
Actually, it proves he was mindlessly reading his prompter and wasn't listening to what he was saying.

He couldn't care less about that honorable soldier.

When a media declared, 'great orator' whose profession is law and his words are his tools, mispronounces a word, it is a 'big *******ing deal" in the words of the sitting VP.

When the 'commander in chief of the armed forces' mispronounces a proprietary term that relates to his subordinates who sacrifice their lives for their country.....it is a "'big *******ing deal" in the words of the sitting VP.

When you consider the ceremonies that honor our veterans such as the choreography seen at the 'changing of the guards', where every movement is critical.....you expect a living medal of honor recipient to get the same respect and attention, especially when it involves the sitting president.

This latest disrespect by Obama has now become a trend following his corpse-men remark.
There seems to be a trend of errors by the man whose profession is to calculate his sentences and measure his words.

Obama has now demonstrated a lack of interest in both the military and the economy.

Guess the media will now make it a social offense to pronuonce the bits of steel that result from an explosive device as sharp-nel.....shrapnel will now be consideed socially unacceptable and a slur against Obama.

Obama's screwups are a slap in the face to the people he doesn't even pretend to honor.

Clue: The silly president misspeaks every time he opens his mouth. His screwups aren't the result of an accent or southern drawl. They are SCREWUPS. They are a direct result of his lack of knowledge. The man is dumber than a pet rock.

Guess the ceremony was not important enough to look at before he went public to make sure he got it right. After all, they are just military.
