AWKWARD: Obama bungles basic U.S. geography

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

President Obama made one his many late-night TV appearances yesterday when he visited the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk about a myriad of topics, including the NSA, the latest Al Qaeda threat, and Trayvon Martin. The most interesting topic, however, turned out to be an answer President Obama gave about infrastructure, in which he blundered some pretty basic U.S. geography.

“No one is picking up on this,” Glenn said on radio this morning about the President’s ‘oops’ moment. “Play the geography lesson.”

LENO: You mentioned infrastructure. Why is that a partisan issue? I live in a town, the bridge is falling apart, it’s not safe. How does that become Republican or Democrat? How do you not just fix the bridge?

OBAMA: I don’t know. As you know, for the last three years, I’ve said, let’s work together. Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports. You know, the Panama Canal is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. 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.

Just an FYI, Mr. President: according to Google Maps, Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia, Jacksonville, Florida are all located on the east coast along the Atlantic Ocean.

“They’re already going someplace else because none of those cities are on the Gulf,” Pat said. “Every city he names is on the Atlantic side.”

So far the majority of the media has been silent on the gaffe, though you can easily imagine the outrage that would have ensued if, say, President Bush had confused his geography.

“That’s pretty bad,” Pat said. “Again, if that was Bush, he’d be excoriated.”

“I think that most people, unless you are living right there, most people – I would have thought to myself, I don’t think those are on the Gulf. [And then] you would have thought, I must be wrong.”

“No,” Pat said emphatically, “because you know that Charleston’s in South Carolina, you know Savannah’s in Georgia. The toughest one is Jacksonville. That could be on the Gulf. Then the cursory check of Google Maps would you tell you, no, it’s on the Atlantic side. Pretty amazing and nobody says anything.”

But, then again, if you use the President’s logic that we must “deepen” our ports, maybe his geography isn’t so off after all.

“Can I tell you something,” Glenn asked. “You have to deepen those ports, so they go underneath like some underground river – underneath Georgia and Florida.”

“They connect underneath? Is that what he’s saying,” Pat questioned.

“[President Obama is] just smarter than us, as usual,” Stu joked.

    You can only spend so much time speaking in public before you mess something up.  While Obama does this frequently, I’d say we focus on the actual damage he’s doing.  He’s doing things that need a lot more attention than his flubbing on geography.

    I think if we focused on this, it would be at the expense of fighting a worthwhile battle.

    Savannah, more wrong than just geography.  Learn about your nation, Mr, President.
    Business continues to grow, and Garden City Terminal remains ahead of the curve. Anticipating the changing pace of trade not only in the Southeast and Midwest but in overseas markets, the Georgia Ports Authority will invest $1.2 billion in expansion projects over the next decade to accommodate the projected growth in global trade.Over the next 10 years, Garden City Terminal is scheduled to add on average two high-speed super post-Panamax container cranes every 18 months for a total of 25 cranes, as well as 86 Rubber-Tired Gantries (RTG) as part of long-term developments for a full RTG conversion at the facility, further improving terminal efficiencies. And to accommodate the larger traffic necessary to keep up with demand, the Georgia Ports Authority is in the process of increasing the depth of the Savannah River Navigation Channel from 42 to 48 feet MLW (12.8 to 14.6 meters).These expansion projects, together with numerous others identified under the GPA’s long-term strategic development plan, will increase throughput capacity from the current 2.62 million TEUs to 6 million TEUs in 2018.

    Not that anyone cares, but you can get fro Jax to the Gulf via the Intracoastal Waterway without going around the tip of Florida. It takes you down the coast inland across to Lake Okeechobee and out into the gulf at  Ft. Meyers.

    Why does Obama always talk about infrastructure? Maybe he has stock in those companies. What good will infrastructure do if our enemies see our president as a weak leader? Our country needs protection from Russia, Iran and China. We also need lower taxes to help the middle class. We don’t need a president going on Jay Leno showing how little he knows.

     The reason he knows nothing about the U.S. geography is because he did not grow up in the U.S. during his formative years, so therefore he did not study U.S. geography. He only traveled in the U.S.mainland one time when he was younger. The rest of the time he lived in the U.S. was in Hawaii.

    Seriously, Glenn Beck and crew … this is a man who thought we had 58 states. This from a man who was ALREADY a Senator at the time, and who is expected to know we have 2 senators per state, and that we have 100 Senators in Congress. Yet, he thought we had 58 states. This is like an English teacher going in front of his class saying, “Class, I will teach you the 30 letters of the alphabet.” What can you possibly expect from such an English teacher?

    These geographical locations of ports …. meh … that’s too difficult for Obama, so cut him some slack. :)

All the things which best help our enemies.

    And STILL the masses support him. He has lied to them on many fronts, broken his promises to them, and in no way made their lives better, and they bend a knee to him as if he were some feudal noble inspecting “His” lands.

    It fits right in with his geographical knowledge of our states.  When asked if he liked the train ride into the states when he was campaigning for his first term, he answered “yes” saying all the 55 states were beautiful.  Then, he corrected himself by saying “I mean 57.” DUH!  Is he really a citizen?

    Where I can see why everyone would point out his lack of US geography, there is something more disturbing about his idiotic statement.

Why is no one calling him out on this?

    My best friend is an Hawaiian native.  She is about the same age as Mr. Obama.  She studied US geography when she was in school.  Contrary to popular opinion, Hawaiians can be quite patriotic and know quite a bit about the continental US.  

    Besides, lack of education during his “formative” years is no excuse because, since Mr. Obama first started running for the presidency in 2006, he has traveled all over the continental US.  And, I’ll bet my bottom dollar that he has campaigned in all three cities at least once and, most likely, multiple times.  Our “Peter Principle” President is simply fulfilling a prediction made by H.L. Mencken of The Baltimore Evening Sun on July 26, 1920 — just seven years shy of a century ago:
    “As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”Take away his tele-prompter and his script and Mr. Obama is just like the other morons Leno runs into at the Universal City Walk when he is shooting episodes of “Jay Walking” — that show just how stupid the American public (and especially the out of town tourists) can truly be.

  • Dave

    Of course, you are correct. I can think of flubs past presidents, vice presidents, and other politicians who were true Americans (in the context of supporting the Constitution, etc) have made. Anyone recall Dan Quale? Gerry Ford?

    We need to be concerned with stopping him from doing more damage before he leaves office, and making sure we at least hold the House and gain the Senate if we can. Of course, gaining the presidency as well would be the Grand Slam, the Triple Crown, of politics and a start to put the nation back on course.

    I’m 60-years-old, and the sad fact is that Barack Obama knows as much about geography as most people in our general age category–and I had a good teacher for at least two years of schooling that made us draw maps!!! What I really know about U.S. geography I learned drawing trip-tiks for the AAA. I remember being shocked that many of the roads in our western national parks don’t open to tourists until Memorial Day, and the rim drive around Crater Lake may not open until July 4th!!! Even the northern rim of the Grand Canyon is generally closed until late May. I received many, many such shocks in the course of my employment with them, and learned my general way around Europe doing a similar task for a short-lived travel company who didn’t bother to include maps in its brochure!!! GPS may be easy, but ask my uncle how reliable it was when it told him to make a turn in Yellowstone that went absolutely nowhere. Give me a good, old-fashioned map. 

    Oh, and by the way, I’d like to see a booklet published each year with all the questions from the National Geography Bee. I’d like to learn some of these things, too!!!

     As usual, the people on this board and most elsewhere on the internet have it all wrong. This is what she said:

    “GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?

    PALIN: They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.

    GIBSON: What insight does that give you into what they’re doing in Georgia?

    PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is
    and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good
    relation with all of these countries, especially Russia. We will not
    repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies,
    pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it’s in their
    benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be
    getting along. ”

    This is pretty comical (in case you didn’t know, the population of eastern Russia is about .01 people per every square mile), but not nearly as comical as listening to all of the hate from the GOP.

    I’m not very big on giving Obama a pass, however, in reading the transcript, perhaps he was attempting to say that ports along the Gulf need dredging, as well as those other cities he named, not really implying that they were Gulf cities. It would be very difficult for anyone with a 1st grade education could make this mistake. Let’s give Obama a break on this innuendo, but at least 95% of the time he is either totally wrong about his assessments of mission critical situations and has divided our country on socioeconomic and racial grounds.

    Well that was stupid to say those ports are on the Gulf. If he doesn’t know enough to know they aren’t, he shouldn’t be talking about it. Of course he shouldn’t be president, even if he never talked about anything. However, the issue of deepening those non-Gulf ports is an actual issue, and those cities are working on ways to finance that. The problem is that along their docks, the water isn’t deep enough to accommodate the newer and larger freighters, so they need to dredge/blast/whatever-they-do to make their ports deeper. Another bit of geography for Obama: ships coming through the Panama Canal aren’t limited to ports on the Gulf of Mexico. They also go into the Atlantic: up the US Atlantic coast, and even to Africa and Europe!

    Tankers from the east coast of the US have four possible routes; through the gulf + panama canal (shortest route); around Canada through the arctic ocean(unsafe and too long); through circumnavigating South America; or a lovely trip around the World if they are feeling extremely adventurous. – Maybe the media did not catch on because it realised that his statement was accurate?

    Well the first goof or side step, or out and out lie was his statement that he didn’t know how to fix the problem. Yes he does, but he is not going to admit it, and that is why I consider him the most dishonest President we have ever had. The fact is, that on his second day in office in his first term he signed an Executive Order in the Rose Garden that basicaly directed the Federal government to only give Road Building and Bridge Building Contracts to Union Only Companies..All he was doing was paying back his Union supporters to the detriment of Americans pocketbook..Think of the Boston Big Dig, which the Demoncrats and Unions are so proud of, 30 Billion in cost over runs, rampant bribery, kickbacks and 10 years in completeing a three year job. Just not enough people going to jail and Obama wants to do his on a National Level…No thank you…And that is why he claims not to know how to resolve the problem he created….

    I know what it is and Obama wants to usher it into this country badly.  More government will always at some point equal socialism.  And no, you can’t prove otherwise and NO, you can’t find any proof that Obama isn’t a socialist.  Look at his background, look at ObamaCare (The UnAffordable Care Act, sorry), look at how he wants government structured.  It’s socialism whether you know what it is or not.

    To me it is just more evidence that Obama is not “American”.  Remember that Hawaii is a series of Pacific islands — not on the American continent.  So, according to evidence he “produced”, Barack Hussein Obama is a Pacific Islander — granted, that shows he is a native born United States citizen.  But geography (which this whole topic is about) proves that he not an American!  (And I mean it in more ways than one.)

    On our eastern shore lies the Gulf Stream, the river within the ocean,
    flowing to the north.  Gulf streams and
    currents aid ships in movement by allowing said ships to “go with the
    flow”. The ports of Charleston, South Carolina, Savanna, Georgia and
    Jacksonville, Florida are along the Gulf Stream. President Obama did not say
    the “Gulf Coast”. He said the Gulf, the Gulf Stream is important to shipping
    because it allows shipping to use the current to push the ships up the East
    Coast. If those ships need to stop in any of those ports and they are not deep
    enough to handle the ships when they are loaded it will cost those ports a
    major source of commerce.  People
    talking about this as a “gaff” have absolutely know idea what they are talking
    about. Glenn Beck on the other hand knows what the Gulf Stream means to
    shipping and is using this deliberately to spur his ignorant listeners in to
    spreading the word that Obama has know idea about US Geography. Shame on Glenn
    Beck for deliberately misrepresenting the information presented and shame on
    his listeners for being led blindly in to his scheme.

    Here is Ben Franklin’s map from 1770, notice how the Gulf Stream flows up the Atlantic Sea Board, right by the ports of Jacksonville Florida, Savanna, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. Discovery of the Gulf Stream dates to the 1513 expedition of Juan Ponce de León, after which it became widely used by Spanish ships sailing from the Caribbean to Spain. Of course I would not expect Glen Beck listeners to be aware of all of this for they simply take his word as the Gospel truth. Sad, how very sad.

    You just don’t understand the new geography, Obama was referring to the Gulf of the Atlantic. Oceans separate continents, seas separate lesser land masses including islands, gulfs are masses of water surrounded on most sides by land (as are bays, but they are smaller).

    As Obama’s philosophy is that of “one world” then all the oceans are merely gulfs within the single continent/nation that is his World Federation. OK, I really stretched it on that one – but stretching a definition is right in line with the current administration.

    I might add, as an old sailorman (both amateur and a Naval officer), that the idea of deepening ports is a fallacy. One can deepen a section of a port for deep draft ships/tankers but that has to be in a limited area specifically for those ships. Ports are normally at the mouths of rivers, and rivers bring silt down stream. The dredged sections of the entrance to NY harbor are about 40′, and not very wide. Most of NY’s outer and inner bays are an average of 20′ (been there, done that). It is a continual effort to keep the channels deep enough for cruise ships.

    Another bit of pie in the sky from a man of no direct experience.

He only said Gulf.  But if you like to add Gulf of Mexico to make you seem like your right ok.  Continue to tell everyone he said Gulf of Mexico. lmao

  • Melanie

    No, you are right, he didn’t say “Gulf of Mexico.” What is a gulf? Dictionary.com defines it thusly: a portion of an ocean or sea partly enclosed by land. The North American continent has four such bodies of water, the Gulf of Alaska, the Gulf of California, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. So tell me, which gulf do you think he meant?  Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville are located on the Atlantic Ocean which is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a gulf. So, Obama Kool-Aid drinker, my answer stands.Perhaps you should pick up a fifth grade geography book and grammar book.

  • Chris Phipps

    each city mention are gulf themselves.  each are enclosed by land makin each a gulf.  

  • Melanie

    Chris, you are reaching, sweetie.  Don’t fall.  Look on any map of the US. You are referring to harbors, which are, according to dictionary.com, “a part of a body of water along the shore deep enough for anchoring a ship and so situated with respect to coastal features, whether natural or artificial, as to provide protection from winds, waves, and currents.”  Most coastal cities have them. A gulf is much larger.

    obumer an idiot. he would probably get lost with a gps  if you gave him one.
    most people of today don’t even know how to read maps let alone know how to use one.
    5th graders probably don’t even know what a map is.

    Had George W Bush uttered such nonsenical gibberish, the lamestream media would have jumped down his throat — and bandying about such phrases as “retarded coward,” and “gentleman C.” 

    It’s no wonder the Boston Globe and Washington post recently sold for fire sale prices.  Nobody is believing the lies anymore because such hard-hitting propaganda is the norm

    Sam I’m more afraid of people like you, then president Obama.  You live in a god fearing, climate denying, cult.  You refuse to use logic or reason.  And you call yourself a patriot?  You’re an asshole.

    To Obama these cities are on the “Gulf Coast of the Atlantic!” Because he said so.

    …and interestingly he (Obama) often refers to the “killing of [has] been Laudin” as “I caught him!” or “I rid the world of him” but NEVER the NAVY SEALS who risk their lives while he played cards (?) and had to be  called into the situation room for the “show down!”

    A.  Why are you surprised that an African doesn’t know US geography.
    B.  Why are you surprised that a (half) black man with an IQ 15 to 20 points BELOW the average white American cannot remember facts his teachers tried to teach him when in school.
    C.  Why do you wonder that a man who does not like or want to work and who has been given a free ride his entire life regardless of his criminal past, regardless of his sexual orientation, regardless of his numerous crimes against the US and the American people and who simply does not care to learn, remember or even bother to correct himself for an obvious blunder.
    D.  And why, for God sake, do you ignore these facts then wonder why a paranoid schizophrenic like the man calling himself Obama sees us as not worthy of his time or talent and who simply ignores anything that is not about him and does not support his own very bizarre view of himself and an even more insane view of the world that he thinks he’s running.

    If you do not understand by now that that man is seriously sick in the head and choose to accept any part of the propaganda spewed out on his behalf by the US versions of Pravda and Izvestia (namely ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX) then you may already be beyond help since you appear to have abandoned all sense of reason a long time ago.

    Since no one has any data to prove this little d*** head got any votes at all, what makes you think ANY voting block voted for this guy?

     True, Berry isn’t a 5th grader–he’s vastly more stupid than an average 3rd grader. 
    And what makes you think he’s POTUS?  I haven’t seen one documented vote for him or one ounce of proof he’s even an American–I can’t think of any reason a half black African should know anything about the US.  But ask him about something he knows, like the geography of Indonesia.

    Okay, You are right…. I will Give him the credit of a 5th grader….
