If we apply the logic of the left to the latest gaffe from the man who engaged in a land transaction with convicted felon Tony Rezko, we would have to conclude that Obama doesn’t understand the difference between Afghanistan and Iraq. He did not correct his mistake right away either. CNN reports (emphasis added):
The president twice referred to Afghanistan when clearly talking about the situation in Iraq.
He said that the United States would withdraw all combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2011 and that combat operations there had ended, which actually describes the situation and policy for Iraq.
It was unclear whether Obama realized his mistake.
So does Obama still believe that his father served in World War II or that Europe is a country? If the media applied the rules to Obama that it applies to conservatives, this new Obama gaffe would be the top story on every evening newscast.
