    First Alex de Tocqueville and then asking the head of HBO for advance copies of Game of Thrones and advance copies of other videos.White House transcript hides Obama's gaffe [VIDEO] | The Daily Caller

    At the same dinner. Obama asked for 'Game of Thrones' and 'True Detective' early | The Daily Caller

    The LIVs accept this.
    His remark about Tocqueville was unremarkable, but complaining about calling him Alex is pretty petty. If Tocqueville was taken out of context or if we can get into a debate on how much Tocqueville liked or disliked American democracy (and why) is more worth mentioning. Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich had a classic back and forth on the proper meaning and lessons of his work. This is just lazy bs.

    However petty it might be it does demonstrate Obama's lack of scholarship on the most insightful book on America and Democracy ever published, It should be required reading in schools.

    And while Leftists will claim pettiness in this instance (and deliberately overlook many other frequent Obama gaffes and ignorance) they did not afford the same attitude to any Republican politicians, as we have continually seen.

    Did you find out if he ever got advance copies of his favorite TV shows?

    Only in 50 of the 56 states.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    LOL!!

    Did you have the same attitude and response when Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann or George Bush was attacked? No, of course not.

    The fact is that you have the MSM protecting this buffoon and exposing his comedy of errors and low information voters who will hysterically (like yourself) defend anything he says. Amusing to watch but very bad for the country.
