Obama as Sam Cooke: "Don't know much about history... Don't know much about geography..."

Transcontinental, intercontinental, whatever. I give him a pass on this one. You really shouldn't pounce on every mis-statement he makes: it's petty. I'm more worried about what he says when it's clear he's trying to implement his Five Year Plans.

Well, actually this is the third or fourth time this has been done by the O.

I'm just surprised he doesn't know that the Transcontinental railroad, while a great feat, is a monument to government corruption, cronyism, a giveaway of public land twice the size of Great Britain and Ireland by Congress, Land Office bureaucrats and outright theft and a creation of corporate power that threatened the nation.

But then, there is no evidence Obama would think those were bad things as long as he's in on the ground floor.
