Little did the good people of Sioux Falls, SD realize that Obama’s campaign of change meant the name of their city.
Oops, Barack Obama has done it again. First it was the 57 state gaffe, now Barack Obama forgets what city he is in during a campaign speech in South Dakota. If he keeps it up, Obama may have to start paying song royalty right to Britney Spears.
Both South Dakotans lavished all sorts of praise on Obama, according to reporters present, including The Times Nicholas Riccardi. As the large, enthusiastic crowd of some 7,000 supporters roared and waved “We can do it” signs and Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising” blared, Obama bounded onto stage, grabbed the microphone and said, “Thank you, Sioux City!”
Trouble is, Obama was in Sioux Falls.
So was the crowd, which suddenly fell silent. Where are those Southwest Airlines get-away flights when you need them?
FYI Obama, one of the things a President needs to do is to pay attention to the details. Something that you seem to be failing at miserably these days during a campaign. Then to make matters even worse to cover himself, Obama dais the following of which the Iowa voters probably thought none too much of.
“I’m sorry,” Obama quickly caught himself. “Sioux Falls. I’ve been in Iowa too long.” Now, that line may not go over too well in the Hawkeye State, which gave him his first big caucus win way back in January.
