cause a similar thing happened to me in school, when the girl who sat next to me in Maths for 6 months called me Jeffrey in front of the whole class (that ain't my name).
It felt bad... He probaby looks like this right now:
was so obviously intentional I'm surprised a bigger deal hasn't been made of it.
People are taking the piss out of Osborne, and whilst it is funny, it's not his fault.
Would be interesting to see the reaction if, say, Bush had done the same thing.
because that's the persona he projected.
Either Obama was deliberately being a dick and making a point of Osborne's unimportance, or he unwittingly made himself look like a dick and revealed quite how unimportant he thinks Osborne is.
Fairly revealing for what it says about Osborne's place on the international stage and the UK/US 'Special Relationship' at the moment.
means it's more than likely he'll make a slip-up now and again, especially if those in question look like a Jersey Royal.
but you'd have thought you'd take care to check before a meeting with your hosts when on the international stage, no? It's not the first time he's dissed the current government either.
you don't know you're wrong until someone tells you. Obviously if he just grabbed a name out of thin air and guessed that's different. I was presuming there was no maliciousness there, he just got confused.
Whether that's any better in a world leader is another matter.

if I had the time or inclination I could make an HILARIOUS video montage
I think his mass booing at the Paralympics is FAR more damning

And fair enough given the situation.
