Obama: "We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad"

Andrew Malcolm asks another good question: when will the media notice all of Obama's mistakes? When Chris Wallace asked Michele Bachmann if she was a "flake," I wondered whether anyone would ever ask Obama, with all of his mistake, the same question. Well, with Malcolm on board, possibly things are changing.

That's what the president of the United States flat-out said Thursday during what was supposed to be a photo op to sell his jobs plan next to an allegedly deteriorating highway bridge.

A railroad between continents? A railroad from, say, New York City all the way across the Atlantic to France? Now, THAT would be a bridge!

It's yet another humorous gaffe by the Harvard graduate, overlooked by most media for whatever reason. Like Obama saying Abraham-Come-Lately Lincoln was the founder of the Republican Party. Or Navy corpseman. Or the Austrian language. Fifty-seven states. The president of Canada. Etc. .

Feb 9, 2009 at a FL town hall at the 5:20 mark into the clip available here.

May 1, 2010 - University of Michigan commencement speech at 4:20 into the clip.

Feb 16, 2011 - This interview with WTMJ in Milwaukee at 7:30 into the clip is particularly interesting since Obama changes his mind on what to call it: "Abraham Lincoln helped to build the interstate, er, the intercontinental railroad . . ."

Thanks to Bill Vargas for his help collecting these links.
