President Barack Obama may be the president, but he still flubs his lines like most politicians. These are the best "Obama-isms" as far as we can tell. These are the 44th President's classic gaffes and funny outtakes. From his time in the Senate to his time during the 2008 elections, President Obama has commited a number of verbal blunders and we expect to hear more from our President until the end of his first, and possibly only, term.
