How to use blunder in a sentence?

  1. Tim Winter:

    TLC once stood for The Learning Channel…and now it stands for Totally Ludacris Content, it’s pathetic and it’s desperate. It’s a strategic blunder. You have to have a brand for your programing and a program like ‘Sex in Public’ is going to help nobody. It may be clever in terms of ‘oh they’re going to a food court to talk to about their sexual appetite’ but at the end of the day this is explicit content, it’s on a network that has built a brand on other types of content. I just don’t think it’s going to fit.

  2. Robert Anson Heinlein:

    To be matter of fact about the world is to blunder into fantasy -- and dull fantasy at that, as the real world is strange and wonderful.

  3. President Obama:

    The historic blunder of this administration is not leaving a stabilizing force behind in Iraq, i do not believe Syria would have spun out of control, certainly.ISIS rose from the defeated ashes of what was Al Qaeda in Iraq.

  4. Dan Sullivan:

    Meanwhile, in the face of this Russian military buildup, we are significantly reducing Army forces in our nation’s only Arctic state, Alaska. This is a strategic blunder by the Obama administration.

  5. Anuj Somany:

    When a person fails in his endeavour, practically everyone around him tells only what he lacks and many may even point out his strength as weakness; but if he succeeds or excels, then most of those people find even his greatest blunder as splendour.
