Forget The Country, The Obama Administration Can Barely Run Spell Check

Now, I’m hardly one to ride herd on others for grammar errors, spelling errors and typos. Writing at least a dozen posts every single day, seven days a week, without an editor I make more than my fair share of mistakes.

But I’m also not churning out important diplomatic documents that, one would expect, would go through multiply layers of review before being made public.

Per Powerline, the Obama administration has posted online a letter that has been sent to G20 leaders. A letter that is replete with spelling and formatting errors. Like this:

For our part, we will pursue measures to SUppOit the recovery in private demand and return the unemployed to work.

And this:

At the same time, we recognize the impoltance of setting a credible medium-term fiscal path: that is why my Administration will cut the budget deficit we inherited in halfby FY 2013 and work to reduce our fiscal deficit to 3 percent ofGDP by FY 2015, which will stabilize the debt-to-GDP ratio at an acceptable level in that year.

Maybe they’re not really expecting anyone to read this stuff?

Does this really matter? No. Though it does disprove a tenet of faith held by Obama’s cult of personality. That he and his administration some sort of super intellects that are going to save us all from ourselves. Let’s face it, these people aren’t any smarter than the rest of us.

Yet these idiots are now running car companies, banks, and our health care.
