President Obama's Not-State of the Un-Union Pseudo-Address was chock full of big ideas, inspiring inspiration and standing ovations. Well, that was last night and this is this morning, so unleash the hounds of factcheck…
President Obama misspoke Tuesday night when he credited the U.S. with the invention of the automobile as part of his call for investing in the industry.
"I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it," Mr. Obama said in his address to a joint session of Congress.
See, the contributions of many inventors made the horseless carriage possible, but it was Germany's Karl Benz who deserves final credit for inventing the automobile.
But why jump to the conclusion that Obama made a mistake?
I just assumed it was a cry for help.
