Man Who Thinks Austrian is a Language Complains Americans Don't Know Languages

Our Beloved Leader continues his apology tour/vacation by telling foreigners how much America sucks. In Argentina, Obama complained that Americans don't speak foreign languages.

I'd like us to do better is greater awareness of the world outside of the United States... in some ways, America didn't feel as if it needed to know what was really going on outside.  It's part of the reason why we don't do as well on foreign languages compared to a lot of other countries with the kind of educational levels.  

If we want to train young Americans to be able to compete, they have to know where Argentina is.  They have to know how to speak Spanish or Chinese -- Mandarin.

Not to mention Austrian. Most Americans don't speak Austrian.

Obama: "It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian..."

The term is Dummkopf. We would also accept Debile. Which in Austrian means "progressive genius who is always on the right side of history".

Somehow I doubt Obama can find Argentina on a map. Or would even know it existed if not for its intersection with leftist politics. But he can always pander to the left by lecturing Americans on their parochial, provincialism. It's class signaling by a politician with no class.
