Oops, He Did it Again … Obama Now Forgets What City He is Campaigning In


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, Obama_progressnow 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.

      it is very telling that these ‘gaffes’ and other laughable petty stuff like flag pins get attention.
      a desperate attempt to distract from real important issues.
      SM: You have finally figured it out. YOU ARE BRILLIANT!!! YOU GET A GOLD STAR.

      IT IS LAUGHABLE, You are correct. It is laughable and so is Obama. He is a joke!

      Obama forgets what his pastor has said, forgets his relationship with Rezco, forgets how many states there ar in the US and what city he is campaigning in.

      What a clown. Maybe Obama’s handlers can write the city down on his hand next time with a Sharpie.

      he might need to adjust his meds.

      of course i meant it is laughable that this gets any attention at all.
      like Kyle wrote: McCain never misspeaks or makes verbal errors just like his mentor Bush…
      but in a way it might be a good thing that these unrelevant things gets coverage now.
      i don’t know how much silliness to attack Obama the GOP has in store for him. but i guess most people already had enough of it and long for the real important issues.
      and those will expose McCain as being too closely connected to Bush. he has been frantically trying to distance himself from GWB.
      for example he did a total flip-flop by giving a timeline for withdrawal in 2013, while before he attacked everyone who demanded a timeline.

      #4- Dennis in TN… LOL

      #2- Causu— (((APPLAUSE))) Took you long enough !! I still don’t think you deserve the Gold Star though.

      I don’t think he appreciates the gold star. Maybe he gets the sarcasm. ;)

      Causu … what important Obama topic would you like to discuss? His economic plan? Obama is a socialist. He will further ruin our economy.

      Foreign policy? Obama is an amateur dangerous neophyte in the vein of Jimmy Carter.

      Honestly. I have been at an Obama speech and frankly he is a novice. He is a rank armature who is dangerous for America.

      However, I guess America may need to relearn the Jimmy Carter experience to have real republicans run and be voted back in office.

      [...] Or do his handlers just push him out on stage with his canned stump speech. Obama has made yet another gaffe of the spoken word. Seeing that Florida is a major swing state and a must win in the Fall when it [...]
