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?
@BarackObama Just a note, Mr. President…Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville are NOT ports in the gulf. #TonightShow #57States

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.
