President Brain Damage not only bragged that he was in Columbia to scout out new vacation spots for he and Michelle, after making the news last week by his awkward attempt to deflect a question about his families many expensive vacations, but he also flubbed the name of the disputed Falklands Islands in the South Pacific.
In Spanish they are known as the Malvinas. President 57 States called them the Maldives, which are an island chain in the Indian Ocean.
We should probably count ourselves fortunate that he didn't call them the Endives.
He should know the difference since our allies the Argentines and the British fought a hot war over them several years ago, and because potential oil deposits nearby make their ownership a continuing issue in South America. It is very inappropriate to display this much ignorance so publically, and it's yet another embarassment to the United States that our leader apparently doesn't know the difference, even though there was probably a teleprompter in front of him with the correct name.
When will this disaster of a presidency ever end?
