This is the great orator Obama?

Mistakes are becoming quite common for President Barack Obama.

Take this one. He talks to the troops about how proud he was to have awarded Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti the Medal of Honor because he "actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”

Unfortunately, the commander in chief didn't know what the hell he was talking about. Monti gave his life in Afghanistan. And, Obama himself awarded Monti the Medal of Honor posthumously.

Obama subsequently apologized to the soldier's family. But, Jeez. That's a big dumb error.
