Imagine the Media’s Reaction if a Republican Said Any One of These…

1. “I’ve now been in 57 states, I think, one left to go.” - Barack Obama
2. “Ten thousand people died – an entire town destroyed.” - Barack Obama, following a tornado in Kansas. Actually, only 12 people died.
3. “The President of Canada…” - Barack Obama. Canada has a Prime Minister.
4. “My parents got together because of what happened in Selma.” - Barack Obama, marking the anniversary of the March 1965 “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama. Obama was born in 1961.
5. “Thank you Sioux City – I said it wrong, I’ve been in Iowa for too long.” - Barack Obama, while campaigning in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
6. “We only have a certain number of them, and if they are all in Iraq, then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan.” - Barack Obama, decrying the lack of translators in Afghanistan. The problem is, Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. The Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi, or other non-Arabic languages.
7. “Iran doesn’t “pose a serious threat to us.” - Barack Obama, stating that “tiny countries” with small defense budgets cannot do us harm. The next day he stated, “I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave.”
8. "Stand up, Chuck, let 'em see ya." –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Senator Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008.
9. "Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me." –-Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire.
10. "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened." –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn't president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that televisions hadn't been invented yet.
11. "A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!" --Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama.
