    (During Thursday's jobs speech) Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party.

    Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854.

    Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned.

    Actually, they did more than yawn; government-funded PBS has altered the transcript of the President's speech, removing the offending comment. So PBS has purposely altered a transcript containing a major gaffe by the President.
  2. Just read that story a few minutes ago.

    I'd like to say I'm shocked but I'm not.
