Obama’s newest gaffe: Bungles name of the Dominican Republic

Verbal gaffes may have been fodder for the media when George W. Bush was president, but you probably didn’t hear about the one President Obama made Thursday.

During his speech on creating higher-education opportunities for low-income students, Obama incorrectly introduced a student from the Dominican Republic, and The Washington Free Beacon caught the blunder.

“There he is,” Obama says in the video. “Good-looking young guy right here. Could not speak a word of English when he moved to the United States from the Dominican Republican at the age of 9.”

Think he’s got Republicans on the brain?
