Obama embarasses US with another geographical gaffe [Vanity]
My Grey Matters | 15 April 2012 | Me

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?

Lonesome: “He may be the most intellectually, philosophically, and experientially least qualified president in our nation’s history.”

That is so true and well put. Most FReepers knew Barack Obama wasn’t qualified for the presidency before he was elected, but I doubt many of us knew just how poorly qualified he was. I do sympathize for him. Thank the Lord I was raised up by moral parents in a time when the schools weren’t trying to tear America down in order to remake it. Can you imagine being raised with a list of grievances against an imaginary foe who conspires to keep you down yet continually advances you beyond your capabilities on the basis of your skin color???
