Obama Blunders Names in Burma Print E-mail

Acrew Obama.jpgPresident Barack Obama shocked crowds in Myanmar after he mispronounced the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, on numerous occasions.

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "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."

During his tour of Asia this week, Obama kept mispronouncing the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most recognized human rights activist in the world.

According to the Telegraph, "as Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced the name repeatedly."

Obama also screwed when pronouncing the name of Burma’s new president.
