Michael Barone finds it “interesting that mainstream media journalists who are so eager to zing Michele Bachmann for getting John Wayne’s birthplace wrong, have not been interested in asking whether” President Obama made a mistake last Thursday
. . . when speaking at Fort Drum, he said that SFC 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.” Alas, he was mistaken. He awarded the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti posthumously in 2009 and awarded the Medal of Honor in person to SSG Sal Giunta in person in 2011.
“You might think,” Barone quips, “that their chief motive is to make Obama look good and to suppress facts that make him look bad.”
Fascinating how many people, based on the immediate past president’s verbal gaffes, assumed he was a dunce. Wonder if they’d have a similar opinion of the incumbent if the mainstream media paid as much attention to his gaffes as they did to those of his predecessor.
