Obama: I Can’t Speak French. So How Come You Can’t Speak French?

Comrade Barack Obama once again shows how little of his comfort zone is in America. He recently chided Americans who do not speak other languages. He snickered at them and said that when they go to Europe the only thing they can say in French is “Merci beaucoup“.

It’s…It’s…embarrassing when.. when …uh… [sic] Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and [snicker] all we can say is Merci beaucoup.

What an insulting Asshat™ this guy is. Worse yet, to use an American expression: He should talk! He struggled with the language of a country he was living in and he has the Audacity and Arrogance™ to snort at others in America for being unable to speak other languages while simply visiting other countries.

Obama has claimed on numerous occasions to have become fluent in Indonesian in six months. Yet those who knew him disputed that during recent interviews.

Israella Pareira Darmawan, Obama’s 1st-grade teacher, said she attempted to help him learn the Indonesian language by going over pronunciation and vowel sounds. He struggled greatly with the foreign language, she said, and with his studies as a result.

As far as I can see, Comrade Obama is only capable of saying one phrase in other languages: Yes We Can. Even with that one line, his Spanish was atrocious, so I would like to know how it is that he thinks he can continually make fun of the country he wants to be President of and get away with it? Comrade, who were you referring to? Those “bitter hicks” with guns who work from sun-up to sun-down to provide you with your Whole Foods selection? Are you referring to those “downscale” voters who are too busy to learn other languages because they are working two jobs just to make ends meet–while they serve arrogant snotty asses like you?

Comrade, did it ever occur to Arrogant Asshat You that you insulted Hispanic Americans in this country who are struggling with our most difficult language that has an exception to nearly every grammar rule? Of course not! You are far too arrogant and self-impressed for that!

Speaking of languages of countries you visit without speaking their language: I also understand that Barack Obama plans on holding fundraisers in China. I am not surprised, considering he seems to be the darling of Socialists, Communists, Marxists, Maoists, Theocracies and lovers of Lenin and Stalin the World Over. The thing is, many Americans live in China. This is because China has stolen so many of our jobs. I would think that as a so-called Democrat, Obama would be more concerned with bringing these folks and their jobs back to America, but true to what he is, he is more concerned with getting their money.

I also understand that the Comrade has a half brother in China, named Mark. His father sure did get around, having left kids everywhere, it seems. This must be where he inherited his “respect” for women. Perhaps his brother will be helping him raise funds and set him up to talk to some Government Leaders there to get tips on how to run America. More importantly, I was wondering if Obama plans to pay a visit to China, and if so, will he be speaking Chinese?

Come to think of it, the only relative he has in the USA where he wants to Reign Supreme is his Typical White Grandmother, and he tossed her under the bus months ago. While Barack Obama enjoys pretending to be as great and as American as JFK, I can tell you for certain that when the truly great JFK was President, you could find all of his family in Hyannisport very easily on any given weekend. Nobody was hidden and JFK was proud to pubilicly speak of them and name them. Why is it, Barack Obama never speaks of the relatives he has all over the world? Why is it we have to go hunting for them? When he visits them in their respective countries, does he speak their language or does he speak English? This seems to be a fair question, don’t you think?

If Barack Obama thinks everyone else in America who doesn’t speak the language when he or she visits another country is worth snickering at, then should he not be able to speak the language of every place he has visited? For example, I know that Barack Obama has visited one of his favorite places where some of his biggest fundraisers are citizens: Pakistan. I was wondering, does Barack Obama speak their language?

Barack Obama has a stick up his ass and the most amusing part of that is he has no right to have a stick up his ass. He is a mediocre man with minimal achievements, the greatest of them is his great success at working the Chicago Thug Political Machine and sticking his nose in the air, pretending he is above everybody and everything.

He is so without substance of his own, that he spends most of his time pretending he is the equal to great men such as RFK, JFK, MLK, FDR and Lincoln. Yet, he parades himself as Above The Rest – ad nauseum.

I wonder exactly how many more Americans he insulted by laughing at America again–this time for speaking only one language: The language of the country in which he is running for President.

While this Out of Touch Snot is busy telling everyone in America to go learn another language, Somebody also needs to explain to Comrade Obama that, in spite of his attitude that the country he wants to become Czar of is inferior to the places he really loves–such as the Middle East, English is the preferred language of business communication World-Wide.

While it certainly does open doors for people to learn other languages, Comrade Obama might be more helpful to the USA if he chastises many of his own young followers for their own communication problems with the English language. In fact, back when I could stand to listen to him, I heard The Comrade Himself butcher the use of verbs with respect to singular and plural. So, comrade, try telling your worshippers to focus on their own language first before shipping them off to butcher another country’s language. Thanks!

Having spent a fair amount of my life in Academia before moving to the Real World, I get the sense that Obama needs to permanently assign himself to the Faculty Lounge instead of running for President of The United States. His arrogance and snottiness with respect to the Real World is simply staggering. He is so snotty, he can’t even help himself. Insults just roll right off his tongue.

Comrade, we are truly sorry that so many Stupid Americans just don’t speak French and German. We all know that you are classy and we are not.

It’s a wonder you put up with this country at all, you are just too damned superior for us! Let us Worship You for that.

Say! I have an idea! Comrade Obama! We are sorry our country “embarrasses” you so much! This might come as a huge surprise to Snotty You, but you embarrass plenty of us as well! Perhaps you would be more comfortable running for President of France. I know many of us here in America would be more comfortable with that thought. For sure, you would hear millions of us say, Merci Beaucoup.

By the way, speaking of embarrassing: It’s embarrassing to listen to a Presidential Candidate act like a snob when he can’t even put two sentences together sans teleprompter without saying “uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh………ahhhhhhhhhhh” every sixty seconds. Just saying!

So tell us, Comrade, do you speak French and German? Just wondering. If not, get on it, Mr. Lead-By-Example! Merci Beaucoup!

    Hmm! Your idiocy is showing, sir!

    This poorly educated snob is now our President. I have great respect for him–indeed, I voted for him. His command of English makes yours look pathetic.

    How many Hispanics voted for him? How many laborers? How many children of loborers? (I’m one). My parents–poor, hard-working white people– instilled in me a respect for education and a great respect for the President of the United States, no matter who he might be. What a pity yours didn’t!

    Yes, I speak French. I also speak some German and read Latin and some Greek. That doesn’t make me a pinko. I don’t feel that I have to wear fat-cop sunglasses and a Takes-us sheriff’s hat to prove that I’m true-blue American. I’m a woman and a great-grandmother, but I’d defend this nation with a gun in my hand to my last breath against any clear and present danger–including the likes of you.

    By the way, did you know that a theocracy is a government led by a god? Who the heck do you think ought to be leading ours, Glen Beck? Also by the way, theocracy shouldn’t be capitalized, though of course the word god, when indicating the god leading America, should. Just so you get it right if you ever have cause to use such a fundamental concept.

    I happened on to this miscarriage of an article by chance. If I ever happen on to another one of your articles, I’ll think there is some dark power at work.

    this is the most sickening article i’ve ever seen
    to start off, i would like to point out that english is not the most difficult language to learn. While it does have a lot of rules and exceptions, so do most European languages and Asian languages with far greater vocabularies and tenses. Second, if we as Americans are ever to get rid of our unjustified and self proclaimed reputation as “the world’s best” we need to start off by accepting the fact that there were other countries out there thousands of years before the US even existed, and that English was merely one of them and is in no way superior to any other language, and far from being the most efficient. As a matter of fact, nearly every one else in the world speaks English to facilitate their business and relations but just as soon as the economy shifts and world powers alter, lazy and stuck up Americans will be fucked as they are left to realize the world didn’t wait for them to learn another language. And as for the point that hard working Americans don’t have the time to learn one, that is bullshit, every other industrialized country is faced with similar challenges and yet once again manages to outdo us in yet another way.

  • palintheexaggerator

    How dare anyone suggest we Americans learn another language? We should let everyone else do that. After all, we are Americans!

    I have spent 28 yrs. of my life defending our county with USAF. At no time in all of the countriesI visited, approx. 45, did I ever have a problem with any language. Most people in those countries will go out of way to accomadate your requests. Who the hell does this puck from chicgo, hawaii,keyna, were ever. And the worst is where is his real birth place.I know where I was bor, does he. I really do not like Hillary, but right now she is head and shoulders above this total fraud. I can’t believe the grand po-bos of the dem party are happy with turd.

    Sorry to be so late to this party, but Thanks Uppity for another excellent observation and analysis.

  • Tristan

    That’s great. Obama’s answer to the open borders/immigration crisis: Learn Spanish.

    And FYI Senator Obama, I do speak three languages, including French and Spanish. I learned them to attend a top international business school overseas. But do you know how much good it does me? Zero. That’s because I live in a wealthy and well educated part of the USA, not freakin’ Guatemala.

  • http://investigatebarackobama.wordpress.com/puma/ kat in your hat

    Thank you Uppity! lol….

    Meanwhile, I don’t understand wtf Obama is complaining about. It IS required to take a second language course in high school and in college.

    What more does he want America to do?

    I’m so sick of him looking down on everyone. Meanwhile, he should be worrying about down home America. They aren’t worrying about learning freakin’ french and zipping around Paris; these people are worried about how to pay for gas–not their European extravanganza vacation.

    I bet the Euro press played that tape of Obama making fun of Americans. Obama knows that too. He wants a BIG OLE welcome when he goes to Europe.

    BLEGH!

    What ever happened to Working Class Artists and her Latin expressions? She was a great commenter.

    And to BO:
    Du kannst nicht auf meinem rucken pishen unt mir sagen class es regen ist.

  • Fred C. Dobbs

    The US, England, South Africa, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have spent large sums of blood and treasure over the years so that Frenchmen, Belgians, Dutchmen, Poles, Chinese, Thais, Egyptians, Libyans, Moroccans did NOT have to learn Japanese, German or Russian.

    All the US has asked in return for this are a few small plots of land for the interment of its young men who failed to return home.

  • Linda

    OH SNAP!

    Merci Beucoup! roflmao You are just too good and witty.

    He just is W 2.0 is toooo many ways. Amazing, truly. But Bush we know enjoyed spending time in his country.

    and this “I also understand that the Comrade has a half brother in China, named Mark. His father sure did get around, having left kids everywhere, it seems. This must be where he inherited his “respect” for women. ”

    PERFECT!

    • Zeke

      Sound Like Barack’s Daddy?

      Papa was a Rolling Stone

      Hey Mama, is it true what they say,
      that Papa never worked a day in his life?
      And Mama, some bad talk going around town
      saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife. And that ain’t right.
      Hey, talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.
      Talked about saving souls and all the time leeching.
      Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.
      Mama just hung her head and said,
      “Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
      Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
      (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.”
      “Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.
      Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
      (And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.”

      • educatedwhitewoman

        ” . . . storefront preaching . . ..” LOL! Every time I hear BO assume his “preacher’s voice,” visions of a certain crazed Chicago preacher who lives in a million-dollar mansion in a rich, white neighborhood come to mind (and all of Barky’s other colorful friends and mentors). As someone said, you can’t make this stuff up.

  • kcfromtx

    What languages does backtrack speak? His wife, his kids?
    Instead of being embarrassed by US citizens not speaking two or more languages, he should be embarrassed by the language spoken in his own south side Chicago district. It’s not even a language!

    uppity woman,

    Thank you …some people just never learn, do they?

    If you smile at me, I will understand
    ‘Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
    in the same language.

    “I want to cut his nuts off.”

  • Cat in NJ

    Well said, Kelly!

    Spanish is already being taught in the majority of our public schools, starting in K. I’m OK with that. But to EXPECT Americans to learn a second language, so condescendingly suggested, is way out of line. We spend a TON of money on bilingual material and programs. Communities around Northern NJ do the same for large Arabic and Korean populations as well. We cater enough to immigrants. Meanwhile, Obama cannot articulate his ridiculous ideas without the aid of his teleprompter. What a scam artist.

    …and the stupidity of some of those skanks sitting behind him, clapping and cheering … God help us.

  • http://hotair.com/archives/2008/06/02/michelle-obama-dont-trust-bloggers-because-people-lie/ Kelly

    OUCH. Obama sucks.

    I have serious doubts that I will ever even make it to Europe in my lifetime. I have a mortgage on a 30YO 2 bedroom home w/original paint, student loans, bills, bills, bills, and my car needs to last another five years and it is a 1995.

    I just get by and I still consider myself fortunate. He is such an ass.

  • elizinsandi

    oops… always read it…

    When I see an Uppity post, I already read it because I know she tells it like it is! Thank you, Uppity!

    Question? Jackson’s envy of Obama aside, could this be a staged event so that O. can claim that he doesn’t have 100% of AA approval all the time? I mean Rev. Jackson would do this for him. Look like an idiot (again).

  • Christy

    Supposedly BO is having a spat with J. Jackson. Don’t buy it! It’s choreographed. He’s trying to distance himself. Jackson’s son works with BO for God’s sake. They are all racist.

  • Christy

    I asked a Italian post-doc student who came here that exact same question about language, as he spoke English fairly well. Humbly because I can not speak any other language. He said, “oh, English is the World’s language!” Thank-you Jordy, who is a sweetheart. Unlike BO who is a stinking elitist scumbag anti-American ahole.

    BO please stop putting American’s down.

  • Sam

    uppity woman, i know there is a video of this available, it is MUCH more powerful when you hear his tone, please link to it!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZprtPat1Vk&eurl=http://www.redstate.com/

    I agree with bilingual education and I think it needs more emphasis, but his tone is ridiculous, as is his statement about being ashamed of Americans. Can we say snob?

  • bastardcraig

    He’s an artful politician, preparing for his upcoming trip to Europe. He knows comments like that help to satisy the ire of America-hater in Europe and will bring them out in droves where ever he appearces publically. Obama knows political angst.

    • Fred C. Dobbs

      DING! DING! DING!

      We have a Winner!!!!

  • HankinPA

    Well, let’s see here . . . as far as I know, English is the only official language for more than a thousand miles in any direction from where I live, except in parts of Canada where I never visit.

    Dont blame us for living in a part of the world with less need for many languages. If Obama wants to join the Euro trash who American bash, he has a good start going with nis head in the air about us in PA!

    I would say Obama needs to pull his head out of his rump, but his head is waaaaaay too big to fit up his nether regions.

  • pm317

    I saw the video of his everybody learn Spanish gig. He is so bad, he can’t put two sentences together fluently in English. Go, learn your language first. Where does he get off trying to lecture everybody? And these are standard elite ideas that he spews off.

    Uppity, very apt title — that says everything.
