    We all know that something happens to people that occupy the oval office that makes them say or do stupid things.
    I call it the Oval Office Personal Stupidity effect, or OOPS for short.

    President Nixon OOPS
    Watergate hotel.

    President Ford OOPS
    "There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe"

    President Carter OOPS
    He beat up a bunny rabbit with a paddle while fishing from a boat.

    President Reagan OOPS
    he thought the cameras weren't rolling yet and announced that the bombing of the USSR was about to commence.

    President G. H. W. Bush OOPS
    Vomiting into the lap of the prime minister of Japan (turn away from the prime minister when you vomit).

    President Clinton OOPS
    Intern blowjob.

    President G. W. Bush OOPS
    "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful — and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people — and neither do we."

    There are a lot more OOPS moments from the presidents listed above, but those are some of my favorites. 4 years from now I wonder what my favorite OOPS incident from President Obama will be. I guarantee it will happen with him just as it happened to the rest of them.

    It surely will. Presidents are human beings, no matter what they think of themselves as.

    Actually the Carter administration was one prolonged OOps.
