"It's time to raise a minimum wage that's worth less than it was when Ronald Reagan was in Congress" #RaiseTheWage #DNC14 5:56 PM - 28 Feb 2014

Is this some sort of trick question? When was Ronald Reagan in Congress?

@policygal @crdepalma @TheDemocrats Sadly Americans have little historical knowledge; e.g. most believe Dems freed slaves & KKK was republ.!

We’re guessing from the surrounding tweets that this gaffe was part of President Obama’s speech to the DNC:

You mean the media who reported on the "country" of Czechoslovakia today?

I wonder if they know Ceaușescu and his wife is dead?  How do you become a political journalist without knowing political history?

#msnbc please! Czechoslovakia hasn't been around since 1993. Time to change your maps #Ukraine @nowwithalex twitter.com/Albertoriva/st…

As an apparent Russian invasion of Ukraine ramps up in Crimea, tensions are heightening worldwide. Armed men seized the airports there on Friday in what the Ukrainian government described as an invasion. President Barack Obama said the United States was "deeply concerned" about reports of Russian military movement there and warned of "costs for any military intervention." Reports from the Ukrainian border service said Russian transport planes had landed in the region with unknown cargo — all of which means MSNBC might want to invest in a map of the region that's not outdated by 20 years.

Shortly before the president made his comments, MSNBC's Now With Alex Wagner ran a segment on the apparent invasion there and illustrated it with a map that included Czechoslovakia, a country that has not existed since 1993, when it dissolved into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Perhaps, before MSNBC single-handedly spreads more chaos in the region, it should invest in a map with one more name on it.

It was no mistake, it was just another liberal lie.  Liberals spend a lot of time rewriting history to make it conform to their needs and wants. :odrama:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
