Even though there will be time for the OOTY in 2012, it’s time now to vote on the Obamateurism of the Week!  We have a few modest choices here, so you won’t need to pass the buck.  Can you dig it?


Previous 2011 “winners”:

Last week, we picked the OOTY for 2010, which was Obama bailing on his own press conference to attend a party and leaving Bill Clinton in charge.  Next week we’ll start listing the 2011 OOTW winners in this space.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at[email protected] with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
