Obama makes an Obama

When Obama strays from the protective rails of his teleprompter.

Rotting AF1

He gives a good speech, but he’s loose with the facts. He called Abraham Lincoln the “founder” of the Republican Party. Nope. Lincoln was not the founder of the party; he wasn’t even the first Republican nominee (John Fremont was, in 1856). Lincoln was, of course, the first Republican to be elected president. [TIME Magazine/ Jay Carney, referring to Mike Hukabee's gaffe in 2008] 

Ok, you've probably heard that Obama gaffed in his joint session campaign speech - citing Lincoln as the founder of the Republican party.

One would think he knew better, given that Huckabee did the same thing in the last Presidential election cycle, and got called on it.

By then Time blogger Jay Carney:

Dear Jay Carney,

Have you no shame? No self-respect?

Never mind. Sorry I asked.

If I read my history correctly,
'twas the Democrats that created the Republican Party.
Now, both of 'em have created the Tea Party.

Once you've drunk the Kool Aid all powers of critical thinking evaporate!

Jay Carney, like Mayor Bloomberg, is a dumbshit!
