But I know the difference between “Intercontinental” and “Transcontinental” !!!!!!
“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad,” Barack Obama.
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.”
Now this is some of the complete historical ignorance of this President.
What he won’t point out is that while building the railroads thorough out the American West was a historic achievement, it was fraught with FRAUD AND WASTE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
