Revisionist History alive and well...

Obama's much better at reading speeches than his predecessor, but it makes me wonder a couple of things.

When's the last time a sitting president wrote his own speeches?

And how closely do they read and ensure the accuracy of what they will spew out?

Obama just referred to us as the country that invented the automobile. Naturally, that makes me wonder about the accuracy of the rest of his statements.

Ford and their assembly line can suck a nut. That's all they're good for anyway.

I am sure you are referencing the 3 wheel machine built in Germany. It was not a modern automobile. Henry ford built the first modern 4 wheel auto.

Perhaps a better question might be: When was the last time we had a President who was smart enough to write his own speeches?

Well at least the leftists here are staying true to their playbook. Double standards abound...
