    The folks over at HotAir have a poll to pick the best "Obamateurism of the Year Final"

    If you'd care to vote, get on over to

    Poll: 2010 Obamateurism of the Year Final Hot Air

    Here are the choices:

    “I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”


    Scolding the Supreme Court over ruling that he got completely wrong during SOTU


    Obama quotes Declaration, leaves out “endowed by their Creator”


    Obama leaves Clinton at press conference podium on tax deal to attend Christmas party


    Any you think should be in the competition?

    Making a major company like BP actually clean up their mess and pay for the damages..

    What an amateur!

    Republicans were apologizing for that one.

    No one told Obama that it should be tax payers that pay for corporate fuck ups.

    What a hoot.

    I was quite entertained by that bullshit he came out with (I think it was in September, in Cleveland) when he said that job growth between 2000 and 2008 was slower than it had been in any economic expansion since World War II.

    I nominate this little goodie:

    "You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia.

    "With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said.

    He bemoaned the fact that "some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction," in the clamor of certain blogs and talk radio outlets.

    "All of this is not only putting new pressures on you, it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy."


    AFP: Obama bemoans 'diversions' of IPod, Xbox era


    Obama in a nutshell: only believe what the I want you to believe and ignore all other sources.
