    He's not the only one.
    Except for the fact that he ceased to use it and acknowledged it as a hoax he had been taken in by, in the very same broadcast he used the facetious item in. And about half way through using it. As I said before, a first and also a new land speed record for admitting the same. A bit different than the majority of similar situations that have cropped up over the years and in various corners.

    Why would you tell someone who is on your side to shut up?

    maybe because he knows effectively how to lead

    well...

    maybe cuz carter's a klutz

    of course, we're talking about the same obama who told the american people to shut up

    that is, only those who aren't on "his side"

    Obama Tells Economic Critics to 'Get Out of the Way' - Political News - FOXNews.com

    "But I don't want the folks that created the mess -- I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.

    "I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking," Obama said.

    The hellofit is those were almost his exact words from a radio interview from 2001...

    Basically said that the courts and the Constitution were in the way of "social change".. and that a coalition of powers would be necessary to bring about distribution of wealth..

    OK I'll do your homework THIS TIME here's the link:

    Lets just say it is correct, lets just say it was not taken out of context.

    Lets just say that things change.

    Lets just say that what you think Obama may do would probably be impossible considering how our legislative process works, our separations of power, and the people.

    Lets just say that 8 years has passed and lets just say Obama has changed his mind, given that is what he meant and it was accurate.

    Lets just say the video was not manipulated.

    Lets just say that 8 years ago you think exactly the same way you think today.

    There is a lot of "lets just say's" in there, but all those lets just says is my point that things change, nothing stays the same and lies and half truths are easy to fabricate.

    PS Youtube is impossible for me to see using normal access, I live in China as a transplanted American and the government here blocks it, I can use an anonymous proxy server but that is painfully slow. Besides, I have found youtube is more about entertainment instead of using it for facts. Far too partisan in many cases and video's are easy to manipulate. Never used them for Bush, would never use them for Obama, regardless if it is pro or con or middle of the road.

    Let's just say that YouTube is a video sharing website, not a news source or political news tool and let's just say the obvious about the above: gobbledygook.

He admitted it as soon as he became aware of it, which given the fact it happened live and on air, must not have too easy to do.

    As we see from recent headlines, Mr. Rather STILL has not been able to bring himself to do so regarding his well documented, shall we say......... error? He is STILL fighting a court case over this matter, STILL refusing to admit what happened and his role in it. For some reason all the "journalistic scholars" going on and on about Limbaugh seem to have missed this slightly salient point. Must be the ginormous blinders bolted to their oh so impartial and deeply intellectual skulls eh?

    And the none too talented band played on with their kazoos..........
    A very important point. Well said.

    Not even in the same ballpark

    One is a journalist, the other a commentator.

    One admitted it when he learned the truth. The other never did admit his mistake.


    Its called personal responsibility which is the biggest difference between the two men.
