The New Presidential Math

Barrack Obama was wrong when he said: "Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace."

Actually, only forty-three Americans have taken the oath. Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th president.

Geez, that's like the millenium not "officially" starting until after the first year because there was no year zero. What a pain in the ass :)

But, I suppose someone in the Obama camp could have had an historian proofread the damn speech. My god, it was in the first paragraph.
