He said that he would lower sea levels…

… so low apparently that he could build a railroad across them:

“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad,” Barack Obama.

ObamaIntercontinentalRailroad That’s what the president of the United States flat-out said Thursday during what was supposed to be a photo op to sell his jobs plan next to an allegedly deteriorating highway bridge.

A railroad between continents? A railroad from, say, New York City all the way across the Atlantic to France? Now, THAT would be a bridge!

It’s yet another humorous gaffe by the Harvard graduate, overlooked by most media for whatever reason. Like Obama saying Abraham-Come-Lately Lincoln was the founder of the Republican Party. Or Navy corpseman. Or the Austrian language. Fifty-seven states. The president of Canada. Etc.

If you talk as much as this guy likes to talk instead of governing, if you believe you are a Real Good Talker as much as this guy does, you’re gonna blow a few lines. But this many?

No doubt, we’ll see a collection of Obama’s Best Bombs on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, one right after the other. No doubt.

Just don’t hold your breath.

And in the meantime, there are those who continue to see Bush as the buffoon, who continue to see him as the reason for today’s problems.

It’s a telling point of reference.  Most telling.

And for those of you who are likely Obama supporters and who haven’t gotten what the gaffe is that prompted this post, the correct term is Transcontinental Railroad (just doing my part to help the slower folks who drop by).
