Watch President Obama Misspell ‘Respect’

It’s actually part of the lyrics to the song itself, but President Obama last night still couldn’t figure out how to spell the main word in Aretha Franklin’s signature song – Respect.


Um, no.  Just no.

Via The Hill (h/t Gateway Pundit):

The White House stenographer appears to have given President Obama a little too much “respect.”

Introducing soul legend Aretha Franklin at a White House performance Thursday night, the president flubbed the spelling of her signature song.

“When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her…” Obama said, prompting laughter from the crowd.

But anyone reading the official transcript of the event provided by the White House would have had no idea of the president’s mistake. In that version, the president correctly spells out the word. 

While most would chalk this up as a simple example of the President stumbling over his words, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that any time President Bush made a speaking error of this nature, it was covered in nightly news reports and would become a lead sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Don’t think there’s a difference?  Ask Dan Quayle how that whole ‘potato’ thing worked out.

This isn’t the first time President Obama was caught in an embarrassing spelling gaffe.  Here he is absolutely nailing the ever-difficult four-letter word, Ohio.
