Obamateurism of the Day

In fairness, what husband hasn’t done this?

Oops! President Barack Obama forgot about the First Lady when leaving Air Force One today at the Ohio airport before his first “official” campaign event today kicking off his re-election bid. Now this is a “War on Women.”

Jim Hoft and one of his commenters say that Saturday Night Live won’t be lampooning this any time soon, which isn’t exactly a surprise in this election season (and the fact that their own season is almost over anyway).  Had George W. Bush done this, they might have used it in a summer special to emphasize his supposed lack of intelligence, however, which is one reason why it’s worth including here.

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.
