Scripted Gaffe from Obama’s Qaddafi Speech

Obama took the opportunity to observe a momentous occasion like the downfall of a 40 year dictator and erstwhile enemy of America to make a truly stupid gaffe. When describing how this feat was accomplished, he said:

“Our skilled diplomats have helped to lead an unprecedented global response.”

Maybe they didn’t have much time to write his speech, but who could possibly write such a line with the slightest sliver of knowledge about history? The 2011 Libyan War has no precedent as a global response? Are you serious? World War I? World War II? Hello?

But of course, he’s isn’t serious.

He’s Obama.

I’ll un-president YOU, buddy.
