PBS alters transcript to hide Obama gaffe
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2011/09/pbs_alters_transcript_to_hide_obama_gaffe.html ^

Barack Obama has gone to Congress asking for more money to spend. The President, in a rambling and tedious exercise mixing blame with demands, made quite a few dubious statements in laying out the case for Congress to vote for the plan which as yet does not exist. Much like Obamacare, Congress must ultimately vote for the bill to know what is in it.

At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party.

Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854.

When Jay Carney went on O’Reilly after the speech, he said Obama was asking the people in Congress to put party ahead of country. Obviously Carney meant to say the opposite, but O’Reilly didn’t notice his mistake.

Brian Birdnow adds:

Brian is wrong about that. Land Grant colleges started in 1862 when Lincoln signed the Morrill bill.

The transcript on the PBS site was changed a while ago.

“O’Reilly didn’t notice his mistake”

Sometimes I wonder if these faces are all on drugs or something.

This is the same media that excoriated Bachmann for mixing up Elvis’s b-day and date of death.

I just don't see an of this "gotcha" crap as being worth our time.

If I were to ask "who is the politician you would trust your future: your savings, your investments and your family to?

What would your answer be?

Just a little clarification. The GOP kind of flared up around the midwest but the first “official” meeting took place in Ripon.

The February 1854 meeting (in Ripon) was the first political meeting of the group that would become the Republican Party. The first meeting by a group that called itself “Republican” took place later in 1854 in Jackson, Michigan. Both cities, along with Exeter, New Hampshire and Crawfordsville, Iowa, bill themselves as the “Birthplace of the Republican Party,” however, Jackson is most often associated with this idea, as the event taking place was the first official Republican Party meeting.

Not too surprising. O'Reilly is so in love with hearing his own voice that he doesn't have time to listen to his guests.

Obama’s gaffes are forgivable.

It is all the other stuff he says that is unforgivable.

If they could ‘seal’ his speeches - as easily as everything else in his past - they would .

The slavery issue was much of a foundational issue for the nascent Republican Party. To give BHO a bit of a break (for the first and likely only time), possibly that translated into Lincoln being a founder.

And the same media that excoriated Sarah Palin for an off-the-cuff answer to a question about Paul Revere that was correct. But Obama gets his facts totally wrong in a prepared speech he planned for at least a week and read off a teleprompter - and he gets a complete pass.

well, that’s because BillyO is so damned enamored with the sound of his own voice that he doesn’t hear half the replies. He isn’t about to get tough with the Obama Regime, either; afraid he’ll lose his #1 poll position with the “fair and balanced”.

Fox is becoming just another Lib Media outlet.

Hey, I’m all for showing the MSM is in the tank for Obama, but posting an entire page here might be running up against some previous agreements regarding copyright.

The average voter is not as focused on Barry’s mistakes as are the majority on FR. So, when a republican’s mistakes (like the Bachman Elvis flub) are beaten to death by the media, Barry’s equally stupid gaffes go through with nary a peep. Voters need to see the man’s ineptitude.

Someone should tell Obama’s speech writers that John Freemong (The Pathfinder) ran for President as Republican in 1856.

not do...

Um, that would be the Constitution and Bill of Rights
Mr. president. You do remember those don’t you?
