The gaffe comes on the second day of Mr. Obama’s weeklong European trip, one filled with pomp and circumstance as he also met with the Britain’s royal family at Buckingham Palace and toured Queen Elizabeth’s private gallery.
Visiting Ireland on Monday, Mr. Obama signed the guest book for his hosts in Dublin. That time he got it right, signing “23-05-2011.”
The flap caused a minor stir on the Internet on Tuesday afternoon. The London Telegraph confirmed with an Abbey spokeswoman that it was indeed the president who wrote the wrong year - after having asked a dean nearby what the date was.
Lieutenant governor to run for U.S. Senate
SANTA FE — Lt. Gov. John Sanchez is running for the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Jeff Bingaman. Mr. Sanchez announced his candidacy Tuesday in a video to supporters.
His entrance into the race sets up a potentially bruising primary in 2012. Former U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson announced her bid in March. Las Cruces businessman Greg Sowards and Bill English of Alamogordo also are running.
Mr. Sanchez was elected lieutenant governor in November, running on a ticket with Susana Martinez. He was the GOP gubernatorial nominee in 2002, losing to Democrat Bill Richardson. He served one term in the state House of Representatives.
On the Democratic side, U.S. Rep. Martin Heinrich, State Auditor Hector Balderas and Albuquerque political activist Andres Valdez are running.
