Obama Celebrates “Five of Four”

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 6, 2009

Yeah, I know I am a little behind on this.  You’ll have to deal with it.

Obama had a little gaffe the other day when addressing his celebration of Cinco de Mayo:

Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro—Cinco de Mayo at the White House,” said Obama, in what appeared to be an attempt to note they were celebrating on the fourth of May instead of the fifth.

Cinco de cuatro means “five of four” in Spanish.

Admittedly, this is a tad nit picky on the old gaffe-meter.  Especially compared to some of his other doozies that sent the meter spinning like a top.  But it is another item for the “What if Bush said it” file.

I am going to chalk this up to him not being able to tell a joke.  A botched a joke with five words…and a bad joke at that.  As soon as he let that knee slapper out, realizing he completely fumbled it, he looked down at his teleprompter watch as if it had failed him.

A shining example of the greatest speaker evvaaahhh…
