Obamateurism of the Day
posted at 8:01 am on June 27, 2012 by Ed Morrissey
Looks like we’re going to have to make this Sports Week at OOTD Central — and we have to start with the most breaking news. Barack Obama, whose basketball acumen has already come under close scrutiny, offered his congratulations to the winner of the NBA Finals … all of them, apparently:
Pres Obama congrats Miami “for having the world champion Miami Heats here in town.” He said “Heats.”

It seems that the President touted by the media as a sports genius and basketball phenom doesn’t know the name of the most famous team in the NBA. After years of liberal fawning over the President’s supposed basketball expertise we now find out that he doesn’t even know the name of the Miami Heat? Seriously?
Who’s his favorite player? Kevin Durants?
Hopefully he gave a shout out to LeBronze Jame.
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.
