How many times over the last year have we said “If George Bush said what Barack Obama said…”
Here’s the enchanting, eloquent Obama’s latest gaffetastic-o gaffe, fumbling a joke about 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.
Fortunately, Ed Morrissey is keeping a running tally with his “Obamateurism of the Day.”
Mary Katharine Ham reminds: “This from a unilingual man who’s embarrassed that more of us can’t speak French. If only he were as conversant in Spanish as he is in noted non-language ‘Austrian,’ this wouldn’t have happened.”
