LOL! Funny how Democrats made fun of Bush's pronounciations, and the Repubs reciprocate with Obama's. Both parties are not only worthless, they are politically and grammatically hilarious!

Uh huh. That's why he ALWAYS said "nuke-you-ler". Every single time.

Used to make me cringe.

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'm not an Obama supporter. But I think posts like this, which seem to be a preoccupation for you, are just dumb. George W. Bush struggled with a few words too.

Compared to what a President does with legislation and policy, this is just trivial BS. You should find something more meaningful to complain about.

After you get called out.

Save it. There are real soldiers out there putting their lives on the line. Sgt. Romesha is the best of the best and doesn't deserve to be used by those who haven't so they can cry and whine about things they don't like.

Old Army Soldier - SHAME ON YOU!!!!

You take this occasion, which was about a recipient of the Medal of Honor, and use it to point out a slip of the tongue by Obama? Was that all you got out of the ceremony - that Obama misprounced a word - which he corrected himself on?? And that 'Shame on You' applies to everyone else that can't see the importance of this occasion.

I read a book that spoke of the battle at Out Post Keating. For whom it was named. That outpost was one of the worst s**tholes in many ways, and should have never, ever been set up there, and those who were stationed there knew it, and those at Bahgram Base knew it, but those who got to wear the stars refused to reconsider setting it up in spite of the info that it would be a sitting target for the Taliban.

You may or may not support the war, you may or may not support Obama, but at the very least support and respect those who voluntarily put their lives on the line for this country and the lives of their brothers in arms who are out there in the battlefield.

That ceremony was NOT about Obama.
