But then again, he gets a lot of use out of this continuing gaff – “uh … oh … um …. Uh … uh … uh …. Um …. Uh … uh …. “
This one really gets me!
The Selma quote
- “There was something stirring
across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and
Barack Obama Jr. was born.”
There are just so many, it’s hard to choose -
Obama stupid quotes
in his own words.
” I won’t wear that pin on my chest”
(and now he does)

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are
