Binders full of gaffes: Obama wants to deepen Gulf ports … in Charleston and Savannah [video]

Geography is hard. So very hard.

When President Obama talked about slowing the rise of the oceans, we didn’t think he’d just do away with the Atlantic. But during the celebrity president’s Tuesday night appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” he relocated Charleston, Savannah and Jacksonville to the Gulf. We’re assuming that’s the Gulf of Mexico, but who knows?

We’re givers, so here you go, Mr. President.


But … but … Mitt Romney hired women from binderzzzzzz!

Transcript of Obama’s Gulf remarks via Politico:

If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else.  And we’ll lose jobs.  Businesses won’t locate here.

Video of the Great Port Relocation of 2013 starts at about the 3:05 mark here:

  • valhallavoice

    This is not a softball interview, it is a T-Ball interview as Leno just puts it on the tee and President mom jeans just stammers his way through it. What must our enemies think?

    • nc

      Perfect image, sadly.

    • journogal

      Chuckling, while making plans. It’s too easy now.

    • klbout

      “What must our enemies think?”
      The same as half of the U.S. Population – he’s an idiot!

      • Jedd McHead

        What truly scares me is the other half, most of whom support him and many of whom still LOVE him. What can we, as a nation, do with such a misguided and delusional sector of our society? I think we’re toast, I really do.

        • Ariadnea

          Obama is just a mere symptom of a terminal metastasized problem US has been suffering for quite a while. It has been the ignorance, greed (for position, social acknowledgement, money, and power), apathy, and indifference of majority of its voters and players. An ill informed and malevolent President like Obama can’t get there without those ignoramus and greedy who put him and his ilks in.

        • tedlv

          Remember, a lot of Pennsylvania districts voted way over 100% of registered voters for the Muslim. Dead people, illegals, and multiple poll worker votes contributed to that. How do we stop that practice when the MSM, bought Congress, and AG are all on the Kenyan’s side?

          • tedlv

            Unintentional post.

          • Rightturn

            Perhaps it’s up to the Canadian Cruz to stop those ignoramus and greedy come 2016.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Its a Nerf ball interview.

    • Michael Ruda

      Gotta love the “President mom jeans” moniker…..

    • g-main

      Well chalk it up to a comedy talk show, unlike having his leg stroked by Tingle-Boy Matthews, which is supposed to be “Hardball”. Leno has been serious critical of hizzoner in a lot of his monologues lately, so I’m sure the advance team told him to shut that big chin of his.

    • tedlv

      Valallavoice: attack now?

    • kellie

      It’s not an interview at all, it’s an infomercial.

    • Morrill Turpitude

      It shows how much of an idiot Obumble is when he can’t get through a T-Ball interview without tripping over himself.

  • CatHerder

    You have it all wrong. He’s talking about the Charleston, Jacksonville and Savannah located in those other seven states.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Didn’t those ports in the other seven states use their stimulus money to upgrade?

    • [email protected]

      good call, I didn’t think of those ones

    • TexSizzle


    • BlueGood

      What an A$$HOLE………………when will SNL so a skit ???…NEVAH……….

      I really do feel for you my American friends………..

      Note to’s one you can deliver next time you are “Booking” O’Goofa to your show….

      “Hi there Mr. President…We like to see you pretty soon….”

      “Um…Uh…mmm…Why Jay”?

      Because you’ve been so fugly for so long”……………..

      • Scorpion

        I don’t think we’ll see a skit on SNL showing him on the docks of Savannah announcing that he can see Mexico from here.The Palin haters must be cringing knowing that Sarah has that ammunition.

    • John W.

      Yes, we do all have it wrong, but not for the reason you state. Obama is at all times and in all things completely, totally, absolutely perfect (if you don’t believe me, ask any member of the Leftstream Media), so if we heard him say “Gulf ports”, we obviously made an error. It’s much more likely that he actually said, “Golf courses”, and all of us are at fault for mis-hearing Obama’s extremely perfect enunciation. Certainly, no one can doubt that Charleston, Jacksonville and Savannah have some fine golf courses. Since I’m not a golfer, I’m going to presume that deepening the golf courses means making the water hazards and sand traps deeper. I don’t know why anyone would want to do that, but who am I to doubt our unbelievably perfect golfer-in-chief?

  • Gloves Donahue

    He forgot Denver.

    That appearance only cost us 3 or 4 million bucks.

    • Marjorie

      Is he going to deepen the port on Jefferson Lake too?

      • [email protected]

        we are dredging out the Fairplay Beach, perhaps we can get some shipping here

        • Scorpion

          Not until he dredges the Gulf of Sidra.

        • GaryTheBrave

          Anything to help the economy of Aspen, dem po’ folks.

  • alanstorm

    And once again, if GWB had said it, it would be proof of his imbecility.

    Obama? Well, he just…misspoke. Right.

    The fact that some people still think he’s a genius (assuming facts not in evidence) says more about them than him, and it’s not very complimentary.

    • Teddi

      People in all those spots have been trying for years to get their ports deepened – it’s mostly the effing Fed Govt & EPA & eco freaks in their way…

      There is nothing original about this idea, just get the effing govt out of the way !

      • Thomas Ratcliff

        ok that maybe true but the city’s he named are not on the gulf coast , either he does not know his Country or he is an idiot .and i think he is an idiot that does not know his Country

        • ceemack

          Aw, don’t be so hard on the guy. I mean, I’m an American and I don’t know much of anything about the geography of Kenya.

          • tedlv

            I have read that there is a historical marker where Obama was born. In Kenya. Set there by Kenyans. You decide.

        • Pat Hayes

          I agree…why can’t he be an idiot and not know his country!

      • Dugway

        What about the ports in states 51 thru 57? Did he mention those? Or the airport in Carlsbad Cavern?

        • TexSizzle

          51 through 60.

          • nmpher29

            Nope. He thought there were 57 states.

          • TexSizzle

            He said he had *visited* “57, I have one to go, and my staff wouldn’t let me go to Alaska and Hawaii”. That makes 60.

          • Dugway

            Huh? Sixty? Sure enough, I just watched the tape. “57, I have one to go, and my staff wouldn’t let me go to Alaska and Hawaii”

        • Teddi

          What about Carlsbad Cavern ?

          • Dugway

            If he’s willing to deepen the “Gulf Coast” ports of Jacksonville and Charleston, he might as well propose that we build an airport in a giant cave.

            Oh by the way, I heard pins dropping when the Pretender in Chief spoke to Marines at “Camp Lajurne” today. It’s bad when the commanding general is the only one clapping for barry in a room full of Marines. Very bad.

          • Teddi

            Really ? ..well that’s good news to see that they are over him…

          • tedlv

            I have met several Marines, true soldiers and real patriots, that don’t like their CIC. Their race was not a deciding factor.

          • Teddi

            I’m sure it was just based on him being such a poor CIC, which is understandable. He has sold out the country in many ways…

          • tedlv

            Teddi, exactly. He is an incompetent emperor wannabe who is trying to destroy this country.

          • Teddi

            I was not familiar with the Carlsbad Cavern, but just looked them up…

    • abbypatch

      Oh, please, don’t be so mean. He’s just been hanging around with Biden and Pelosi too much, that’s all. Their brilliant genius has rubbed off on Obama. LOL

    • Not Anonymous

      Obama’s middle name is “misspoke”.

    • strat77

      There is no greater shame than to be praised by fools.

      • tedlv

        Unless it is to be fooled by idiots.

  • Blake Waymire

    Obama secretly has a double-digit IQ, doesn’t he?

    • TugboatPhil

      Well, double digit if you aren’t including the negative symbol.

    • CatHerder

      It’s only a secret if you turn the sound off and disable captions.

    • ICOYAR

      That is too high of an IQ.

      I would say a single digit IQ.

    • Thomas Ratcliff

      yeah he does, it is a minus double digit iq

  • William J. Miller

    Maybe while he’s at it, he can improve the ski slopes in Topeka, KS, and Omaha, NE.

      Don’t forget Mount Houston.

        Proof of Global Warming: lack of snow in Houston.

        • CatHerder

          We used to get snow in Houston every once in a while, but it was such a pain that now we just go outside and glare at cold fronts until they slink off to the east.

          • GaryTheBrave

            I understand there’s another kind of snow that people snort.

        Never use an apostrophe as long as you live. Grammatically, you have a better chance of being correct.

        • Scorpion

          Sounds like good advice to a lottery player also, unless you bought 1 of the 3 winning Powerball tickets

      • GaryTheBrave

        The one’s down by Deming? (Apostrophe used for tedlv’s benefit.)

    • TomAL

      At one time there was a ski hill about 25 miles E of Topeka (Lawrence). Not much vertical drop though.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        I’ve been skiing in Iowa…wasn’t anything more than a bunny hill, but I was barely a bunny-hill level skier, so it all worked out.

    Many hours away even by driving, and certainly days away by sea– but hey, what’s a few hundred miles between friends! Don’t be so pedantic!

    This is why Americans are turned off by petty politics!”

  • Txgirlinnh

    Can someone get the POTUS a map of this country please? Maybe when he said he was going fundamentally transform America he meant geographically and we have just been overreacting. He clearly has big plans: seven more states and another gulf.

    • grais

      He’s got a map. His flunkies are furiously renaming the Atlantic Ocean the Atlantic Gulf.

      The guys a friggin’ mess.

    • Adela Wagner

      I would not expect someone who is not from here, and clearly not interested in the layout of this country, to know exactly how many states there are and where things are located.

      And if that makes me a “birther”, whatever, I just know when crap does not add up.

  • Lotte Lenya

      • Scorpion

        I cannot un-visualize that.

    • ChiTownGal

      I think Leno just gave him the lead & let barky run his fool mouth off. He showed being the bigger man by not pointing out the obvious – Russian Olympics & Gulf. Russia is hosting the Winter Olympics, no gymnastics included.

        Also, she NEVER said that…. that was comedian Tina Fey on a Saturday
        Night Live episode taking her statement about how close of neighbors we
        actually are to the Russians out of context in the name of parodic
        humor. Classic media and internet myths warping and shaping the politics of this country.

    • journogal

      She didn’t have the coveted “D” behind her name, so…

      • ChiTownGal

        “D” for DUMB?

        • journogal

          Delusional would also have been an acceptable answer.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          “D” for Immuni-(D).

    • Tomme Foster

      Sarah Palin never said that. What you’re talking about was a quote from Tina Fey making fun of what Sarah said. What Sarah actually said was, “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.” Who’s the idiot?

      • nc

        Calm down. It was sarcasm.

        • Tomme Foster

          It’s hard to tell sometimes. I immediately assumed he was a liberal troll who couldn’t debate with actual facts, resorting to focus shifting.

      • Tomme Foster

        @berniegilbert:disqus, if you haven’t already read, my sarcasm meter was turned down when I read your post. Sorry for jumping all over you.

        That being said, millions of misinformed, highly-gullible people in this country don’t know the truth. If you can’t tell the difference between Tina Fey and Sarah Palin, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Unless you’re blind. Then, I’ll let it slide.

        • Bernie Gilbert

          My bad – I forgot to use my sarcasm font 😉

          FWIW, I like to make it a point to refer to the internet as “Al Gore’s Amazing Internet,” when I’m around libs. Then when they object, I tell them, “As long as Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house, Al Gore invented the internet.”

    Can’t wait to see the Track, Swimming and Balance Beam competitions – at the WINTER Olympics in Russia! New Track event this year – 100 meter Snow Plow.

    O didn’t mention that there is over $8 billion in the Highway Trust Fund. But, because of Priority Projects set by the Fed Dept. of Transportation other projects don’t get done. Very few projects are “shovel ready”. “Roads & Bridges” projects have to be surveyed/inspected, req’d equipment identified & allotted/purchased/ordered, req’d supplies, materials & consumables identified & purchased/ordered, skill/specialty requirements identified, crews scheduled, traffic patterns, possible detours and lane rerouting analyzed…there is a lot of planning that goes into building roads & fixing bridges. You don’t just say “I want a road built from here to there – start tomorrow”. Not the way it works.

    And, well…at least the cities Obama named do have Ports – even if they aren’t on the Gulf Coast! Every time I hear him talk unscripted, it’s obvious that Obama isn’t as smart as his “yes” people say he is. To borrow from Art Linkletter – Obama says the darndest things!

    • klbout

      Also, many “Roads & Bridges” are City, County and/or State property and are Local responsibility – not Federal. Local (City, County, State) funding is limited – as are supplies, materiel and equipment.

      • journogal

        The only roads that would fall under federal would be the interstates, correct and perhaps the roads around military bases?

        • Lisa Dean

          Roads surrounding military bases are kept up by the state. Inside the base is handled by the base itself.

      That’s especially difficult since Georgia isn’t even bordered by the Gulf. Look out Florida and Alabama, we are moving Savannah down there somewhere. A shame, because I really love Savannah and we will miss it.

        True…but the lo-in-vo’s in Atlanta know Savannah exist, and even Jacksonville and possibly (but not guaranteed) Charleston, but do they know the body of water near those places is the Atlantic or because President Perfect has spoken/made a decree, the Atlantic Gulf.

    I may totally be conspiracy theorized out after watching this joker for 5 years. He told us he was going to “fundamentally transform” our country, and he’s doing it. What if deepening those ports, which are close to DC btw, were for the mass landing of ships we don’t really want there? Just saying.

  • kalder

    Seriously guys? Is this difficult for you to understand??? Obama listed the places he wanted to address: “all along the Gulf, places like Charleston SC, Savannah GA, or Jacksonville FL.” Four items listed. Not that hard. If your neighbor told you he went on vacation in “Canada, Washington and Oregon,” would you say “omg, Washington and Oregon aren’t in Canada!” Seriously.

    We actually have real issues to solve in this country. Is anyone here willing to actually have a productive conversation?

    Not one single person has stated whether they support Obama’s position that federal money being spent to deepen the ports along the Gulf and the Atlantic! Anyone willing to talk about real content? Are you for or against it?

    Anyone willing to discuss other issues mentioned in this interview? Why have middle-class salaries NOT, on average, gone up for well over a decade, while top salaries have jumped dramatically? Say something with content. Do you think this is fine? Do you think middle class workers deserve more of the pie? Do you think the Wall Street execs and large company presidents deserve multi-million dollar bonuses and tax breaks when the people who work for them are economically stagnating?

    • journogal

      Ummm…thing is you would say “I vacationed along the Gulf and also visited Jacksonville, Fla., etc.” See, Georgia and South Carolina aren’t Gulf Coast states. They don’t border the Gulf or are even near the Gulf. Gulf Coast states are Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida panhandle and the west coast of Florida. I could somewhat understand getting Jacksonville mixed up because it is Florida, but still we are talking about what the President said, you know the one that the media and sycophant followers (ptr) said is the smartest man to have ever graced the office of the Presidency. I am sorry, this doesn’t sound smart. And yes, we are going to talk about it because if this had been VP Palin or Pres. Romney, it would be played non-stop on CNN, MSNBC and other MSM outlets. We would constantly hear how stupid and uninformed Republicans are. Heck, Sarah Palin DIDN’T say she could see Russia from her house, Tina Fey did in a SNL and yet liberals still credit Palin with that.

      As for the rest, who are getting tax breaks now and why? So, it’s time for class warfare. Does middle class workers deserve more of the pie? What pie? Don’t you work for your earnings? There isn’t a “pie.” Wealth isn’t finite, well, it might be if we continue down this route. Why should the government be involved in pay scales for the private sector? You think that’s fair, and can you define fair? Life is unfair and hard and wonderful – government isn’t going to make it easy for you. There is always going to be people who make more and people who make less. That’s life. Obama isn’t going to level the field so you can make as much as a CEO does by doing the same job you are currently in with the same hours. He is going to make sure everyone suffers the same, while he and his cronies (which are majority Wall Street execs) live the high life.

Now that will be finished in 2015. If we don’t deepen the ports all along the Gulf places like Charleston SC or Savannah GA or Jacksonville FL if we don’t do that those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs.

I work now for a golf construction company as a greenskeeper, a far cry from the money I used to make. No one wants to hire an American worker because we demand the proper wages we have worked years to obtain before the economic collapse. Now many companies hire illegals and immigrants that will work for dirt. I personally have witnesses several workers that worked for a few months quit and return to work again (under a different name) for the same low wages.

    I know there are 1000’s of construction workers waiting to build a pipeline somewhere between Canada and Texas as well. What about the Panama Canal, really maybe goods are going to our western seaboard via ship instead of by truck or train from the east coast?

    • worldtrader

      Obama has no idea what he is talking about. Goods that come from Asia that are bound by ocean for the US East Coast arrive by a few different modal methods: 1) On container ships that do fit through the Panama Canal. 2) Via inter-modal train from a US West Coast port and 3) Via truck after having been off-loaded at a West Coast port.

      If the Gulf ports or the Atlantic ports are not dredged to make them deeper, then the larger ships simply will not call on those ports. So what if they go elsewhere? Goods destined for the US East Coast will simply be delivered via the methods mentioned above.

      When these post panamax ships (too wide to fit through the canal) first started sailing from Asia in the 1980’s, not all West coast ports had container cranes large enough to unload such vessels. Guess what? Goods still got to their destinations. Ports and transportation modes adapt. These so-called “Super Tankers” are nothing new…

    Isn’t Charleston and Savannah in one of the 57 states?

  • right_on

    Obviously, Obama was talking about the ports located on the Gulf of the Atlantic…

  • walterc

    And to think of the fuss made over Dan Quayle spelling potato(e).
    If it weren’t for affirmative action this guy wouldn’t have finished high school much less got into Harvard.

    • TexSizzle

      Which Mr. Quayle read off the card the teacher gave him.

  • walterc

    Are we sure he wasn’t talking about the gulf of Oman?

  • AmyKot

    Can you say Camp LaJern to the Marines at Camp Pendleton. This guy is an IDIOT.

  • Not Anonymous

    So cute, how he pretends like he cares about American jobs or it’s people.

  • Zach Smith

    Al Gore told him Florida will soon be underwater. That’s probably where the confusion lies.

  • Indynana

    Obammy looks sick….someone Hurry quick – get him a teleprompter!

  • detroit19

    I live in SC and never knew that my state was on the Gulf Coast, but then, I never knew there were 57 states in the USA. So, can we get us some of that BP oil spill money here on Gulf Coast?

  • SophieRo3

    Do they speak Austrian in the Gulf cities of Savannah, Charleston, and Jacksonville?

  • stillinthe60s

    Geography is so hard when your too busy hanging in the choom car with your buds. Sure he knew how to locate every pot vendor in Hawaii however. (Used vendor not dealer as it would have been racist!)

  • Satnam Singh

    and Dan Q. got killed for spelling Potato incorrectly…nice

  • Noneya

    That’s retarded sir.

  • Pete Petretich

    The real question is can Obama see Russia from the Port of Charleston, South Carolina!

  • tedlv

    Maybe we are missing something, folks. Are those ports maybe a part of the other 7 of the 57 states? Remember this: Dan Quayle lost his reputation because he misspelled “potato”. Remember. The MSM crucifies republicans for minor errors, and ignores major demoncrap errors.

    • jwbaumann

      The lost narrative on the “potatoe” fiasco is that he did not mis-spell the word. It was misspelled on the cards. He caught the error, conferred with the judges, was told that “potatoe” was correct, and proceeded based on their advise. But he was the one on camera, and he was a Republican, so he was doomed.
      I wonder if those SB judges were Democrats?

  • RichFsr

    Since he doesn’t seem know anything about Benghazi, why would we expect he’d know anything about the Gulf coast?

  • go go

    Sad to think Obama was the best republican candidate there was.

    • tedlv

      YOU WIN! That was the stupidest comment I have EVER read. Take the short bus to work (assuming a lot here). You are the stupidest person I have ever had any marginal contact with. Wow.

      • tedlv


    • tedlv

      Do you take the short bus to grade school?

  • Jack Carmody

    What do you expect form this loser? He hasn’t been schooled in America. Just Muslim countries. He’s letting the cat out of the bag

  • tedlv

    No comment.

  • AZGunslinger

    He could be a Miss Teen USA contestant with answers like that.

  • tedlv

    The AG is in the emperor’s pocket, as are the majority of racist senators. Why would we expect anything else?

  • Ken Rizza

    I think he should put new ports in states 52 through 57

  • James Paul

    Obviously, geography is not an important part of community agitating…

  • Ann

    That will show you what kind of an idiot we have in the white house!!!

  • liverighteous

    A lot of construction workers can’t work because he gives the work to CHINA construction companies!

    MissNbc wud be all over this/ 0bama doesn’t know his derier from a hole in the ground!! Commander in Chief/a late nite joker that’s wut he is!!!

  • labman57

    Everybody who engages in extemporaneous public speaking with regularity will inevitably make gaffs.

    What made GWB stand head and shoulders above the crowd was the frequency with which he stumbled, fumbled, and jumbled his sentences.

  • tops116

    Clearly, it’s all because of Sarah Palin. Her NOT saying she could see Russia from her house was her signal to Mitt Romney to use his dog to deliver his binder to George Bush. From there, Bush would hire women to edit every single map in the White House to make it look like places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida were along the Gulf of Mexico–all in anticipation that Barack Obama would be asked a specific question over five years later by Jay Leno. It’s the only logical explanation for President “Smartest man in the room”‘s gaffe. Y’know, that or he’s a complete idiot.

  • David Clark

    What would you expect from a child born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia?

  • porcelainmonkey1977

    Don’t know much about geography . . .

    No truth will ever come out of this person’s mouth. He is a habitual liar, obfuscator, and he learned to be just that by his estranged father and mother.

  • AuntLyn

    Robots replaced auto workers 30-40 years ago. That’s a wore-out talking point.

  • AuntLyn

    People need to realize that politiicans all become actors whenever the camera is on. Well-rehearsed highly trained skilled actors who strive to sway the masses.

  • Barlowmaker

    Do Navy Corpsemen deploy from any of these Gulf ports?

  • Sizz

    Remember when he said Emperor Hirohito signed the surrender instrument on the deck of the USS Missouri? I guess all Japanese look alike to him.

  • skunzsgirlie12

    Tried to post this to FB twice, failed both times? Some numnuts out there looking out for Mr. Obama since they helped get him into office (notice I said Mr. he is not my president).

  • Dave Bigart

    Let’s count the gaffes “W” made. Should take a long time. We can start with WMD’s

  • jubalbiggs

    No, you guys don’t get it. Chairman O intends to lower, and then completely flood LA, GA, Alabama, and Northern Florida (the red part). It’ll be efficient like China flooding vast swaths of countryside without bothering to relocate thousands of peasants first. See; this will remove the deep-red GOP leaning states, and simultaneously open Arkansas as ocean-front property. Win-win! Places like Charleston will be ports on BOTH SIDES, see? Gulf port on one side and Atlantic port on the other… just a little strip of land. There is no way this plan could possibly go wrong.

  • David Johnson

    Surprised he hasn’t blamed his mistake on global warming!

  • Betty Jo Steele Nelson

    Without his teleprompter to tell him what to say he is as ignorant as a slug.

  • TexSizzle

    The other 10 states.
