    This is my opinion. It's not like he said Obama was born there, and Obama does have some relatives living in Africa. I think he just made a verbal gaffe, like he said, and I believe he even apologized for it afterward. The questioner appeared to be trying to set him up.

    It seems like the media microanalyzes everything he and Palin say in a way it would never dream of doing to Obama or Pelosi.

    He did not get them mixed up. He knew exactly what he was doing. He built quite a long argument on Obama's perspective of the Brit's based on him growing up in Kenya. He clearly did not misspeak. He played to the audience, and in doing so, the former preacher committed the sin of bearing false witness. Then he lied to cover up his lie when he was caught. I thought this guy had integrity. I was wrong.
