Obamateurism of the Day

As I am sure most of you already guessed, Barack Obama’s time-traveling gaffe rounds out our week in OOTDs. While leaving his signature in the guest book at Westminster Abbey, the President asked the dean for the correct date — but the dean must have assumed that Obama knew what year it was.

How bad can this be, really?  Most of us probably wish it was still 2008 … and that we could get a do-over of the presidential election.


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.
