Skip to comments.Obama embarasses US with another geographical gaffe [Vanity]

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, who has insisted without success that Washington recognize its claim to the Falkland Islands controlled by Britain, was one of several presidents who left the summit well before its official closure.
She missed a verbal gaffe by Obama, who referred to the "Maldives" instead of the "Malvinas" when using the name Latin Americans give to the disputed islands.
Will Øbama ever learn anything?
Well, well, well, the Sexual Intellectual strikes again.
Come on. It wasn’t like he misspelled a word at a 2nd grade spelling bee or anything.
You would have thought he was at an International Summit with his reputation on display or something.
Mr. Affirmative Action strikes again.
Do you know how hard it was to remember all the 'republics' that made up the USSR. And before that he had to remember all 57 Islamic ruled countries. Heck, by the time the poor boy got to Western Geography his teeny brain was mush and couldn't absorb one more thing.
[Then again, that mush could have resulted from all the dope he was smoking ;-)]
He was close...cut him some slack....lol
Let's see: Newsweek deified him in 2008, and was declared the "smartest" president ever by historian Michael Beschloss.
It appears that those muslim Indonesian schools leave a lot to be desired, and affirmative action promotions from the Ivy League, do not instill knowledge and certainly not wisdom.
No, monsieur. Ill est tres malade et mal a la tete!
(He's very sick and crazy!)
I don’t think that Barry would know what a Malvina is if he tripped over it.
I don’t know why verbal gaffes are considered so newsworthy. Everyone has them. With all the pernicious acts of this administration, like intentionally driving up the price of energy and spending the country into oblivion, does it really matter if the president said, “Maldives” or “Malvinas?”
They install ignoramuses and criminals in our society.
0b0z0 IS both. This is one of the many reasons he's hiding his education records.
If they're ever released, 0b0z0 would be dismantled in a few days and a padded room could be his destination.
Or Arugula, another commonly misidentified nation.
Do the people on the Malvinas speak Maldivian?
Obama, who referred to the "Maldives" instead of the "Malvinas" when using the name Latin Americans give to the disputed islands (Falkland Islands).I just went to Google Earth and measured the distances between them. Barry just made a common mistake, that's all. The Falkland Islands, aka: Malvinas, and Maldive Islands are only 8,183 Miles apart.
See. Anyone could do it.
[If this guy's IQ is above 70 I'll eat my Stetson. ]
Oui...or maybe it should be oy vey?
You guys JUST do not get it. You are trying to make a big deal out of something silly! What's really important is which of the islands would be a better vacation spot for MEEchelle...
Mais no, madame, oy...oy...oy is more appropriate.
Elle (0b0z0) est tres joli!
We don't have a BC to indicate male (God forbid) or female.
And I doubt Obama knows enough about anything to correct teleprompter errors. He just goes with them.
It mattered to Dan Quayle's end of political career over a potato(e)! Not to mention the incessant attacks on Bush's verbal gaffes, right?
The MSM protects the jug-eared One. As the saying goes: Payback is a b*!
Yes. Everyone makes them.
But this is newsworthy because the leftist demonRATS allege that Barry O'DUmmie's IQ is 180! Which is pretty friggen astounding considering that the person who came up with the Special and General Theories of Relativity and that E=mc2 thingy, Albert Einstein, 'only had' an IQ of 160. Add to that the factoid that Barry has never corrected, disavowed and/or disclaimed this 180 IQ bullshit his leftist comrades push.
He is 'the smartest person in the world', you know. Yet oddly, this man who is 12½% 'smarter' than Einstein cannot say 'Hello' without a teleprompter.
Plus, every conservative, republican, and even RINOs are labeled by the commie turds as knuckle dragging morons. So screw them -- time to set things straight and put on record.
