During a joint White House press conference, President Obama referred to new Afghan President Ashraf Ghani as his predecessor, Hamid Karzai.
Given that we still have nearly 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, you would think Obama might want to remember the name of the country's elected President.
Or let me put it another way. How would Obama have reacted if a world leader called him President Bush?
Barack Obama is still presented as a man too smart for this country. Yet this hasn't stopped him from claiming he visited 57 states with one to go, refering to corpsman as "corpsemen", referring to The Malvinas as The Maldives and declaring he was on Asian soil when he was speaking in Hawaii.
