    Here we go again - Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage

    It is only two weeks since his re-election, and his second term remains two months away, but Barack Obama is already blundering again on the world stage, with the kind of gaffes that would have been plastered on the front page of The New York Times if they had been committed by George W. Bush when he was in the White House. Obama's first term was littered with foreign policy gaffes, and there is every chance the second term will be more of the same.
    On his trip to Asia this week, President Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. As The Associated Press reports (hat tip: Drudge Report):
    As Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly.
    Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting.
    Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate's name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.
    Obama also “botched” his greeting of Burma’s new president, according to the AP.

    And where the heck is Obama doing to support Israel? Nothiin! He doesn't even seem care beyond telling them they better not do anything bad to his pals over there.
