The Obamaprompter Spelled “Corpsman” Correctly

But the Obama Himself, didn’t pronounce it right!

In fact, most of my 10th graders know that “corpsman” is pronounced “core-man.”  And this guy’s supposedly really smart?  Saying “57 States” is a snafu during a long campaign, but the Commander-in-Chief needs to know that while the Obamaprompter is spelling his words correctly, he still has to say them right.  Here’s the clip from yesterday:

Why am I picking on Dear Leader today?  I just downloaded John Legend’s cover of U2′s “Pride (In the Name of Love).” It’s a great cover and worth putting on my iPod, but something happens towards the end I did NOT anticipate (fast forward to 3:40 and let it play), nor was present in the original version of the song I heard!  While I can’t take the song back, I’m going out of my way to pick on Obama for something silly in order to adequately balance out the karma.

I’m not going to make too much noise about how he pronounces “Paahkiston,” but you’ve got to admit, for the Commander in Chief of the military, to mispronounce corpsman 3 times, that’s really, really bad. As Ollie said last night, he’s “laid out a stunning assault on our all volunteer military…” so I’m not surprised he doesn’t know how to pronounce corpsman.

Maybe TOTUS should phonetically spell.
