Posted on 12/09/2011 1:58:18 PM PST by Enosh
DES MOINES Presidential contender Rick Perry said there are eight Supreme Court justices, not nine, and flubbed Justice Sonia Sotomayors (SOHN-ya soh-toh-my-YOR) name in an editorial board meeting at The Des Moines Register.
Perry met with the board Friday. He struggled for six seconds to come up with Sotomayors name, then initially called the justice Montemayor. A member of the newspapers editorial board helped him out with the correct name.

Yet this is news to the AP?
Shouldn’t the AP be looking for Obama’s transcripts and LSAT scores? The integrity of his “election’ to the Illinois Senate?
“Monte” is probably her nickname in the butch circut.
And Obama saying Hawaii is in Asia? .....crickets chirping....
Did he refer to the Des Moines Register as a newspaper in Idaho?
You are asking way to much, fella. The Ass-ioted Press is not interested in 0-bama’s transcripts and LSAT scores
At this point, after this many flubs, I wish Perry would drop out of the race, for the good of the GOP.
Perry = Painful.
“”Yet this is news to the AP?

Maybe they should ax hussein to rattle off the names of the 57 states.
Perry ought to swear off the sauce.
How is it “goofy”?
WOW. Between this and him wearing a jacket that somehow resembles a jacket someone wore in a gay movie... seems like he be so ashamed and just drop out. (/s)
I’m not a Perry supporter, but we already have a supposed constitutional scholar in the White House and look how that’s working out.
Or quit wearing Howard Dean’s underwear.
Obama was a D student at Columbia and got a 120 on the LSAT. I defy anyone to prove otherwise.
lol. I’m glad I wasn’t drinking coffee when I saw this.
The (self-proclaimed) constitutional scholar flubs things all the time and the press never reports it. Only by reading a transcript would you ever hear of it.
Actually there’s only 4 Supreme Court justices, and I can’t pronounce Sotomayors name the way the media says it’s to pronounced.
What are you willing to wager if (when) I prove otherwise?
HEY, HEY, HEY! NOW STOP IT:
He was just being amenable to those of us “heartless” bigots who may not like her for no other reason than because she has a “different sounding last name.”
I’m still waiting for the press to report that Obama couldn’t even pronounce “Osawatomie” correctly when he gave his speech there a couple days ago.
And Kansas as Texas.
In defense of Governor Perry, with whom I have had problems with over his “don’t have a heart” comment re: in-state tuition, he is TECHNICALLY correct, there are 8 justices and ONE chief justice.
When did minor verbal slip-ups become worthy of major news headlines?
“And Kansas as Texas.”
I missed that one. I’ll have to do a search.
Well, Obama knows a lot of Navy “corpse-men”. He met most of them while visiting all 57 states.
Obama declared that we have 57 states...
Coming from Texas. he probably isn’t familiar the pronunciation of with Hispanic names.
“When did minor verbal slip-ups become worthy of major news headlines?”
When you run for public office and frequently and significantly need help to remember things every school kid should know. That doesn’t inspire confidence in the people you want to rule over (applicable to both Rick Perry and Obama).
“He struggled for six seconds to come up with Sotomayors name, then initially called the justice Montemayor. A member of the newspapers editorial board helped him out with the correct name.”
Soda- mayor-, now say it real fast. LOL
Not even Perry's people will try to spin it that badly.
Considering he is running for President and its only expected of him to know all the Justices since as President he would be in charge of appointing judges to the bench of SCOTUS.
Yeah, that’s the ticket: We should subscribe to an Associated Pimps article like lefty lemmings, and pile-on one of the more conservative viable candidates because the rest of us get through the week without making any mistakes at all.
Try listening to Joe Bob Briggs, Tommy Lee Jones or Billy Bob Thornton if you want an education in talking good; Texans laugh at you when they hear you order a `Tahco.’
This is an example of why Sarah Palin isn’t running and why there are so few `normal’ candidates. Some Ass. Pimp is going to be toasted by his/her fellow gerbalists at a rodent cocktail party, tonight, for stalking one of the enemy’s candidates and reporting a `gotcha’ moment.
And the rest of them will start sharpening their teeth.
And the good conservatives here will be cherring them on.
Orwell once wrote (to paraphrase) that the sign of a tyranny was not the tyrants themselves, but the existence of subjects who reveled in their subjection and discouraged others from trying to free themselves from their shackles.
This is the kind of stuff that really chaps my ass.
I’d like to have never heard her name however you pronounce it.
Agree...but I DO think of a Chief Justice as set apart from the eight justices. I didn’t hear the remark or completely read the faux pas, but wouldn’t suspect that he’d be thinking as I do.
cherring=cheers, you feckless bass-turds!
“Soda- mayor-, now say it real fast. LOL”
Now say it real slow with a Texas drawl...Sode...murer!
P, want to bring up the gaffs Obama has made, like 57 states in America? No? I didn’t think so.
Hey AP, want to bring up the gaffs Obama has made, like 57 states in America? No? I didn’t think so.
Crazy Willie! No one told me you were back in town.
Michele Bachmann is smarter than Rick Perry, if one counts gaffes as a measure of intelligence.
