    If you need to know the year, dont ask President Obama...

    I guess 2008 was a big year for him...

    Pocket teleprompter failure? Nothing has ever been Obama's fault. Gotta be the guy who programmed his teleprompter (at least this time around).

    Really? This is news? What's the point of posting this, squeeks?

    What's Obama conspiring to do now? Jesus Christ. There are real reasons to have issues with Obama, but this isn't one of them.

    When he previously referred to "[his] Muslim faith" in an interview even though he's Catholic, I'm not surprised that he spaced on the date like that (be it with or without reefer involved). But there are U.S. presidents who have displayed far more sloppiness than anything we've ever seen of Obama.

    It’s obviously somewhat news worthy being covered by CBS news.

    Dude, first of all, he gave you a ;). Second, you posted a thread about Obama making a stupid mistake while making one yourself. You're fair game on that one. :D

    Agreed. I would have gone back further but I couldn't remember when the last time we had a president that was worth anything that wasn't in it for his or his friends/supporters benefit.

    I wouldn't be so sure. There was a huge amount of consolidation of power under FDR, he attempted to eliminate dissent within the Democratic party in the South and the court packing incident in 1937.

    If this had been Bush, all the people here saying "is this news?" would be saying "What a retard! I can't believe this jerk is president."

    Ah the hypocrisy...

    We already did. Nucular, anyone? Or going back further, how about a potatoe?

    Old news, and we've grown up and got over it.. shoe is on the other foot, so the same needs to be done across the aisle.

    There is a big difference between a very smart guy who makes the occassional mistake, and a guy who was happy to have his shirt on with the buttons in the front.
