Obama’s Gaffes … Little Mr. Sunshine … Where are we Again Sweetie? … This Time its all About Sunshine
Barack Obama … Little Mister Sunshine:
This is getting to become a weekly event and embarrassing. Just how many Mulligan’s does Obama get? Barack Obama has done it again in being geographically challenged. Does Barack Obama ever actually know where he is when he is campaigning? 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 comes to the electoral college, Obama may want to pay a bit more attention when campaigning in Sunshine.
SUNRISE, Fla. — At first, it seemed as if Barack Obama might just be speaking figuratively, as is his wont sometimes. “How’s it going, Sunshine? Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you everybody. It’s good to be in Sunshine!” Obama declared on taking the stage this afternoon for a rally at the BankAtlantic Arena in Broward County, Fla., just west of Ft. Lauderdale.
Obama, who often comments admiringly on the climate and regional aura of his various destinations, may simply have been evoking the warmth of the Sunshine State, which he campaigned in for the first time this week after staying away for months to observe the Democratic Party’s primary ban against the state. Or perhaps it was a term of endearment, similar to his recent (and later regretted) use of “sweetie” in speaking to a woman reporter.
But then he said it again, and again — “When we are unified sunshine, nobody can stop us!” — and it became clear: Obama thought he was in Sunshine, Fla. But he was not. He was in Sunrise, the name given to this particular swath of South Florida palm trees, bungalows and outlet stores.
