Whoops: Obama refers to four-star admiral as ‘general’

Obama continues to help pick up some of Joe Biden’s gaffe slack.

The latest:

Perhaps most seriously, however, was Obama’s slip in an interview with KSDK in St Louis, Missouri when he was asked about the new 22-minute film “Dishonorable Disclosures” by a group of former Special Forces troops and intelligence operatives.

“I won’t take this film too seriously,” he responded. “I gather that one of the producers is a birther who still doesn’t think I was born in this country.

“You’ve got one who was a candidate, a Republican candidate for office. And a proud card carrying member of the Tea Party. So this is obviously a partisan film. I’d advise that you talk to General McRaven, who’s in charge of our Special Ops. I think he has a point of view in terms of how deeply I care about what these folks do each and every day to protect our freedom.”

The difficulty with this is that William McRaven is an admiral not a general. As a SEAL, he is member of the US Navy, not US Army or US Marines.

Well, at least it’s a little better than corpse-man.
