Barack Obama’s Committee: The Obamaisms

by | 24th, July 2008

IS it Barack Obama’s age that makes him prone to gaffes? Speaking in Israel:

Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don’t have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.

But, as it;s pointed out, Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Maybe it’s bad phraseology? Maybe “my” is like a football fans talking about “my team” or a celeb talking about “my homeboy“..?
