Glenn predicted that the Mainstream Media would start attacking Michele Bachmann just like they have Sarah Palin, and ever since she announced her candidacy the left has been jumping over every comment she has made. Funny how they magnify her gaffe’s – but they have long ignored those made by their beloved President Obama.
What Obama gaffes have been ignored? Just to name a few….
1) “I have been in 57 states,” Obama has said.
2) You give a “breathalyzer” to treat asthma?
3) “First time I saw tenth 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, who was the person I was able to award the medal of honor to who actually came back and wasn't receiving it posthumously,” President Obama. Monti’s medal WAS granted posthumously.
4) Called Navy Corp members “Corpse Men”
Now, were some of these gaffes honest mistakes? Probably. But where is the same benefit of the doubt and understanding when Michele Bachmann makes a misstatement?
