AP Admits Wrongly Inserting "(and in)" Into Obama Quote About Gulf Ports

    The AP has issued a correction to a story about President Obama suggesting that Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Jacksonville, FL, were located along the Gulf of Mexico.  The president made the gaffe on his Tonight Show appearance Tuesday with Jay Leno.  Here is the correction:

    The AP then reproduces the story and the quote as the president originally said it:
"If we don't deepen our ports all along the Gulf - places like Charleston, S.C., or Savannah, Ga., or Jacksonville, Fla. - if we don't do that, these ships are going to go someplace else and we'll lose jobs," Obama said.
