TAXPAYER-FUNDED NEWS - EDITED TO HIDE AN OBAMA GAFFE!

In Obama's rant on Thursday night before a joint session of Congress (which BTW he DEMANDED rather than was invited to speak at - someone needs to share with this constitutional attorney that he's  CO-EQUAL branch of government - not the king!) he made several 'misspeaks'..... PBS edited one really dumb one - your tax dollars at work!


The New York Times transcript has the following quote:

"We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union.  Founder of the Republican Party.  But in the middle of a civil war, he was also a leader who looked to the future -- a Republican President who mobilized government to build the Transcontinental Railroad -- (applause) -- launch the National Academy of Sciences, set up the first land grant colleges.  (Applause.)  And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set."

But how does it appear in the PBS transcript?

"We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union.  But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future - a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges.  And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set.”
