Last week at the UN, Barack Obama made an appearance at the UN — and then blew off the world leaders to make an appearance on The View. Of course, his presence on this talk show was critical — right?

Referring to himself as “eye candy” … well, that makes one person who thinks of Obama that way.
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.
