Touchy, touchy...

Before he made his way west to California (aka: the Democratic Party's ATM), President Barack Obama gave a few interviews.

In this particular sit-down, he did with a Texas station (below), the president not only got some key historical facts wrong, but he also had a few choice (read: cranky) remarks for the interviewer.

After watching it, you've got to wonder, "Does the president actually know any American history? How could he think that 'Texas has always been a pretty Republican state, for, you know, historic reasons.' Does he have any idea that it was the Democratic Party that dominated the South from the 1830s up until the 1970s and 80s? Does he know which party dominated the Confederacy and the Jim Crow South?"

You decide...
