Barack Obama Insults Nancy Reagan

Proof that if you stand too close to Joe Biden the gaffeness rubs off.

Seeking to establish his bona fides as the first "post partisan" president, Mr Obama evidently thought it would be a really good idea to insult the widow of the man most conservatives and Republicans to be the best president in living memory by accusing Nancy Reagan, widow of former president Ronald Reagan, of holding seances in the White House.

Which was a really stupid thing to say, because Nancy Reagan never held seances in the White House.

He apologized immediately.

So, let's look at the scorecard: One press conference; One stupid comment; One apology.

Seances have been held at the White House however. President Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd Lincoln held several.

Eat that Obama.
