Another Obama "Oops"

Obama hosted a party at the White House today for hispanics ... an early celebration of Cinco de Mayo.

Looking at his watch, which I presume has the day on it, Obama jokingly welcomed the crowd to the celebration of "Cinco de Quattro".  Even someone with a rudimentary understanding of spanish knows that Cinco de Mayo means the "Fifth of May."  Obama welcomed the guests to the "Fifth of the fourth."

I'm still looking for someone in the MainStreamMedia to report this gaffe in the same way they reported every mistake made by George W. Bush and Dan Quayle.

"I'm still looking for someone in the MainStreamMedia to report this gaffe..."

Don't hold your breath.

Wow--so I see this on CNN. Does that count as main stream, or do you just move the goalposts every time so you can maintain your self-serving view that the media is against you?

Considering CNN's sagging ratings, I'd no longer consider them mainstream. They're up the creek without a paddle.

CNN showed the "welcome statement", but I don't think they pointed out the translation. (Incidentally, I saw the quote on Fox, but they didn't point out the gaffe, either. They were just reporting the event.)
