In the grim world of Barack Obama speeches, the only victims are history books and dead presidents. The President fired up the teleprompter again this week to launch another salvo of invective against those who don’t think his utopian cloud-cuckoo land will be such a wonderful place to live. Among those who earned his ire, former President Rutherford B. Hayes, who the President mistakenly believes scoffed at the telephone and the Flat Earth Society, who managed to frown upon Christopher Columbus from two hundred years in the future.

The President’s grasp of history has gotten so silly that it spawned a fun little hashtag game on Twitter yesterday, where folks helpfully provided the White House speech-writing team with a few more facts about our former Chief Executives.

Remember the days when a President’s speeches became fodder for comedy routines and scornful stories on the evening news? Good times. Good times.
