Glenn Beck Mocks Obama for Geography Gaffe

If you watched President Obama on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, you may have missed a moment when the president bungled his geography, but Glenn Beck picked up on it and highlighted it on his show today. He and his co-hosts cried that if this had been George W. Bush making such an egregious error, everyone would have been jumping over themselves to laugh at him, but Obama got a pass from the liberal media.

But what was the gaffe Obama made anyway? Well, in response to a question from Jay Leno about why rebuilding infrastructure has become a partisan issue, the president gave this answer.

“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.”

Only problem? Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville are all along the East Coast, and not along the Gulf. Whoops!

Beck and his co-hosts couldn’t help but laugh at Obama. Beck mockingly helped the president out, suggesting, he meant they have to “deepen those ports, so they go underneath like some… underground river, underneath Georgia and Florida.”
