Obama gets Einstein quote backwards

Politico has this:

For Democratic supporters from 2008 who are thinking about switching sides this election, Obama paraphrased Albert Einstein. “The true sign of madness is if you do the same thing over and over again and expect the same result,” he said during a rally at the University of Minnesota.

“All of you have to vote,” Obama told thousands of supporters. “There is not excuse.”

In fact, the quote is:

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

When you think about it, it should be pretty obvious that Obama got the quote backwards.

That's the last time Obama lets Joe Biden run the teleprompter!

Yep, BHO misquoted, and what he said doesn't make any sense in the context.

Who's insane, then? **snerk**

Since when has truth and accuracy ever stopped him from quoting?

I think the quote, as read by Obama, is perfect as a description of Democrat voters. They are mad, and they keep voting over and over for the next FDR/JFK regardless of the candidate in front of them.
