2008? Obama Forgets What Year It Is


obama 2008 letter[Click here to view the error. Update below.] This is how President Obama signed the guestbook at Westminster Abbey earlier today, where he got a tour from the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall and laid a wreath on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.

Barack Obama

24 May 2008

It was really nice until he got the date wrong by three years. Granted, 2008 was a great year for him, and we might try to live it for as long as possible, too, if we were him. Also, though, he may have had a stroke.

Update: For those who find the European-style date suspicious, the Telegraph reports that a “Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date.”

  1. what a genius.

    When he says 1967 you think he knows what year he is talking about with Israel?!

    The dope can’t even write today’s date!

  2. 2008 is probably the last time President Obama had to sign and date a document, Do you think he writes checks for tuition or credit card bills. All of that is taken care of by staff.

  3. What a weird signature, I get the creepy feeling just looking at it.

    Would love to hear from the people who know how to read in to peoples signatures.

    What a Big Boy.

  4. I guess no one here has a lot of stuff on their mind and makes a harmless mistake now and then. At least he’s not Bush who embarrassed us daily with ignorant blunders like, “the French don’t have a word for entrepreneur.” In case you don’t get it, entrepreneur IS a French word. Duh!

  5. it’s for a scam!!!! y would he sign his name with a date that would be three years old???? either this document is actually 3 yrs. old or the owner wrote his own date to try to make a fool out of our president….

  6. Forget the year the “Made in the USA” president records the date like a European
    Which country with which history does he think he is the leader of ?
