    Nor his speech writers...

    That the Poles were so sensitive?

    "Polish death camps?"

    Not no but fuck no...

    "German death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland."

    Think he'll lose the pierogi demographic?

    When he makes his apology he'll pronounce it meticulously and all will be well.

    Considering the number of Poles who were killed by the Germans, it's not really surprising this is sensitive. Clear gaffe by Obama. He would be smart to issue a quick and unreserved apology.
