While they aren’t the biggest gaffes of the week, it is atypical of President Barack Obama to make several mistakes within two days on the campaign trail – and he did just that on Wednesday and Thursday. The first error to catch the eyes of the press instead of the press’s ears was when he was standing with supporters at Sloopy’s Bar on the campus of Ohio State University and attempted to spell out the state’s name with their arms. A huge-smiling Obama and three others spelled out “OIHO” instead of “OHIO”.

Worth mentioning, but not going totally media-viral since he’s not Republic Dan Quayle who misspelled “potato” decades ago and is still remembered for that juvenile spelling error.
Another error was of more concern. On Thursday, the commander-in-chief flubbed the rank of the top Navy SEAL, William McRaven who is an admiral. Obama erroneously referred to McRaven as a general. Basic knowledge of the United States military dictates that a SEAL is a member of the United States Navy and not the United States Army or Marines. Therefore, the switch of titles for Navy SEAL McRaven raised eyebrows.
When Obama was interviewed on KSDK in St. Louis, Missouri discrediting a film, “Dishonorable Disclosures” – a film created by a group of former Special Forces troops and intelligence operatives – Obama said:
I won’t take this film too seriously. I gather that one of the producers is a birther who still doesn’t think I was born in this country. You’ve got one who was a candidate, a Republican candidate for office – and a proud card carrying member of the Tea Party. So this is obviously a partisan film. I’d advise that you talk to General McRaven…
Also, while doing another fundraiser in New York on Wednesday night, Obama misspoke out the man who blurted out the “misspeak” of the week, Todd Akin. Todd Akin, who made the now-infamous “legitimate rape” comment, is a representative in the United States House of Representatives who is running for the United States Senate. Obama referred to him as Sen. Todd Akin by saying:
Recently, some of you have been paying attention to the commentary of the Senator of Missouri, Mr. Akin, who – the interesting thing here is that this is an individual who sits on the House Committee on Science and Technology, but somehow missed science class.
Apparently, Obama should bone-up on current events to know who is a U.S. representative and who is a U.S. senator as well as which committee is in which branch of Congress before making his sophomoric jabs on the campaign trail.
