The obligatory “Obama thinks it’s still 2008″ post

posted at 2:47 pm on May 24, 2011 by Allahpundit

On a busy news day, I wouldn’t so much as blink at this. On a slow news day, when we’re strapped for content? Mandatory post.

Old theory to explain his policy agenda: Obama’s a dangerously doctrinaire liberal aiming to expand an unsustainable welfare state and dressing it up as “pragmatism.” New theory: Obama has mild brain damage.

Now I feel kind of bad for dumping on him all these years. He’s trying his best, guys.

This is how President Obama signed the guestbook at Westminster Abbey earlier today, where he got a tour from the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall and laid a wreath on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.

Barack Obama

24 May 2008

Follow the link above for a photo — and no, in case you’re wondering, it’s not a photoshop. More details from the Telegraph:

Mr Obama dated his entry in the book May 24 2008, rather than the current year.

Apparently Mr Obama was heard to ask the dean what the day’s date was – but managed to get the year wrong.

A Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date.

The White House is pleading jet lag, but c’mon. It’s only natural for a man to revert to thoughts of his glory days when everything around him is falling apart. That’s why I’ve been dating checks “1995″ for the past 15 years. Exit question: If The One is brain-damaged, is it time to consider removal proceedings? I’m thinking … no.

That guestbook was obviously racist.

From his signature you can see immediately that he is not big on details.

slickwillie2001 on May 24, 2011 at 5:27 PM

This is the 3rd page and I’m sure so much has already been said, but…

1) I wonder if he’s still stuck in the Bill Ayers glory days.

2) No wonder he doesn’t remember Reverend Wright’s racist rants.

3) I just wish all legislation he’s signed was somehow voided.

4) I could see 2010… but, man!

5) Hey, at least he didn’t go ahead in time.

This is how he plans to run for re-election as an outsider. Now all he has to do is convince everyone else it is still 2008 and his opponent is McCain.

You know… a lot of electronic devices revert back to a default date/time when they lose power.

Rebar on May 24, 2011 at 5:53 PM

Mr Obama dated his entry in the book May 24 2008, rather than the current year.

I looked at what happened on this day in 2008 and looked at this day in history. I couldn’t find anything substantial that would make this day and year stand out. This is the only excuse I can come up with as to why he was off by 3 years:

Pathetic, but unsurprising.

Slowburn on May 24, 2011 at 6:06 PM

This might explain the scars on his head. They might need to take him back to the underground lab to reset his switch.

Fox News reported a few minutes ago that Thad McCotter might run for President. I’m at a computer without email – someone want to email HotAir on this?

Greyledge Gal on May 24, 2011 at 6:47 PM

If Sarah had done that .. .

davidk on May 24, 2011 at 6:48 PM

“Profits and earnings ratios”
“Corspe-man”
“57 states”
“2008″
etc. etc.

And yet we’re supposed to assume that everytime he makes a blunder, so immensely stupid that none of us would have done it even when in a drunken stupor (even when I am drunk I know the correct number of states), it is because he is “tired”, etc.

Please. Since he won’t release his college transcripts, I am starting to believe he really is extremely dumb, or at very least extremely clumsy. Tge Affirmative Action POTUS.

Round 28567305 of “Imagine the media reaction if Bush/Palin had done it.”

Troika37 on May 24, 2011 at 7:00 PM

Maybe obozo sucked in too much of that iceland volcanic ash. Maybe not enough oxygen got to his brain today.

This would be a 7 day news cycle if Sarah had done this.

karenhasfreedom on May 24, 2011 at 7:02 PM

I’m surprised that he didn’t make the date 19 “57″ in confusing the number of states or something.

Don L on May 24, 2011 at 7:03 PM

I think he’s been doing too many lines with Slick Willy.

Dr. ZhivBlago on May 24, 2011 at 7:05 PM

Wait, we still have 4 more years of him being President?

I agree. If they remove his brain he might be even dumber than he is now.

School records? Occidental? Colombia? Harvard? Sure he did. He went to the Romper Room School for Race Hustlers and Community Extortionists. I wonder if Soros’ PuppetBoy has even a room temperature number IQ… Where’s Chrissy Matthews on how stupid he is? He sure comes up with that anytime Palin or Bachmann come up. Oh yeah, down in sporting goods buying more kneepads. You couldn’t make up what’s happening in the US today. It’s truly upside down…
