Genius President Obama Thinks Abe Lincoln Built the 'Intercontinential Railroad'

You can’t really call this a gaffe, since President Obama keeps repeating this “intercontinental railroad” line over and over, across several months. It must be what he really thinks Lincoln built. It doesn’t help that his top adviser thinks the same dumb thing.

Intercontinental =/= transcontinental. The latter is what Lincoln built. No wonder the president needs an audience full of plants these days.
