Where’s Obama: Character Assassination or Honest Mistake?

Wheresobama_1In case you missed it, here’s the screenshot that caused such a fuss during Wolf Blitzer’s The Situation Room yesterday.

No doubt the MSM’s labeling of Republicans as Democrats several times during the run-up to November elections have everyone on alert for this kind of stuff, but this one seemed just a bit egregious. Considering the right wing has been trying to make hay out of the fact that the Illinois Senator’s middle name is Hussein, I think his camp handled it with class.

Blitzer: “We want to apologize for that bad typo. We also want to apologize personally to Sen. Barack Obama. I’m going to be making a call to him later this morning to offer my personal apology.”

Obama secretary Tommy Vieto, after accepting apology: “Though I’d note that the `s’ and `b’ keys aren’t all that close to each other, I assume it was just an unfortunate mistake, and don’t think there was any truly malicious intent.”
