Obama on "the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor" and being president for "eight to ten years"

Two good gaffes within a few days.

Can someone make sense of the discussion of "the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor"? If Obama isn't thinking about being president for 8 to 10 years, I would like to know what specific position that he thinks he will get that will last for 10 years. Another couple Obama gaffes that go completely uncovered by the MSM. Here are some previous posts that I had on his other recent gaffes. I want someone to please provide a justification for the asymmetry in how the media treats one spelling mistake by Dan Quayle and these mistakes by Obama. At least in Quayle's case someone even gave him a note with the word spelled incorrectly. Did someone tell Obama that only one bomb was dropped on Pearl Harbor (it would seem odd that anyone wouldn't pick up that mistake right away) or that there were 57 states and that he had one more to go? Again, I am sure that it was a silly mistake by Obama and he wasn't thinking, but did that restrain the press from going after Quayle (indeed still mentioning his mistake)?

1) "the bomb" -- this could be taken metaphorically.

2) "8 to 10 years" -- You misrepresent! He didn't say he'd be president 8 to 10 years, he said these are people he would expect to have a relationship with or be "dealing with" for 8 to 10 years.

Consider timing. His interactions with them are starting before his presidency, and I imagine they could continue after his presidency if he was in an advisory role with the next president.

You're totally making something out of nothing here!

Don't forget OIC as the 57 Islamic states.

Actually, this Chicago machine politician scares hell out of me when he says what he means. His capital gains tax answer in the final Democrat party debate is straight out of the Communist Manifesto.

If this guy gets elected, we in Mass. get a double whammy -- Coupe Deval, Chicago machine politician, as governor, and BHO, Chicago machine politician as pres.
