Here are some of the best Obama gaffes the DNC hopes will go away:
1. At his first St. Patrick’s Day White House celebration party on March 17, 2009, Irish Prime Minister Cowen was just a few lines into his speech, when he stopped reading from the teleprompter as he realized there was a teleprompter malfunction, and that he was reading the same speech Obama just read. Ready to save the day, Obama got back on the stage and began reading the Prime Minister’s speech that just appeared on the teleprompter, the speech that the Irish Prime Minister should have read.
2. We can’t forget Obama’s speech about medic Corpsmen that saluted the military’s
"We're here to honor our fallen heroes, many of who are in the audience.
4. Dan Quayle was nearly laughed out of he room when he misspelled potato. What about the ridiculous Obama statement during the 2008 campaign, “I've now been in 57 states—I think one left to go.''
11. Obama on Grandma: "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society." Can you imagine what would have happened if Bush said words like that about a black person?
12. While speaking off the cuff on a tornado that killed 12 people. Obama got in trouble with the facts when he adlibbed off the teleprompter. Obama was off the teleprompter when he said, ''In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died—an entire town destroyed.'' He did get it right about the town being destroyed.
