“I believe that the guy who said, ‘It’s a great invention but who would ever want to use one!”, in 1879’.
Was the Presidents latest speech fact gaff. The comment was never made according to FactCheck.org! According to the comment from staff at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, located in Fremont, Ohio he never said that and was actually the first President to have a phone!
LOTS of people in the world could make a mistake like that in a speech, and it probably would not be even noticed, much less get commented on. But, let’s face it: the President? How can this happen? He has a large staff of advisers, speech writers, flunkies and adoring others following him around and hanging on his every word. So the fact that this mistake made it all the way out of the Presidents mouth and into the microphone should be setting off flares everywhere!
After all, these are the guys that have their fingers on the button! The big button as in BIG BADDA-BOOM, world annihilation, the party’s over! And in my humble opinion, I don’t believe that there is ANY, ANY room for sloppy! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER!
How this obvious gaff missed the press is a bit beyond me, except for the fact that most of the media types start to slobber the minute Obama comes into the room. To say that an adoring press corp is a worthless press corp is obvious so I won’t say it. But, I hope that everyone is paying attention to this person that was elected President and work to have him removed at the earliest election.
REMEMBER – THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER!!!!!!
