What is wrong with this guy?
President Obama got his Medal of Honor recipients mixed up today, accidentally referring to a posthumous recipient as alive.
“First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”
Jared Monti was killed in Afghanistan on June 21, 2006. He was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously, September 17, 2009.

Before presenting tennis legend Billie Jean King with the Medal of Freedom yesterday, President Obama ticked off some of her accomplishments: 12 Grand Slam titles, 101 doubles titles, 67 singles titles.
“Pretty good, Billie Jean,” he quipped.
“They didn’t get any of my facts right,” King lightheartedly noted afterward. “Did you see how many titles I won? I was cracking up.”

She said it was so cute.
It is just so darn cute.
Remaining silent – as his mouthpiece, MSNBC, calls Americans incredibly ignorant, dumb, old, angry, uneducated, and misinformed. Heck, maybe we all just need a nap. 🙂
Just as a side note: Do you know why Sheila Jackson Lee was on the phone while one of her constituents was asking her a question? She said (on CNN) that she was on the hot line they have set up for them to call and get answers about the bill when they don’t know them. Now, that really is adorable.
