The Pearl Harbor “bomb”

Dean Barnett and Ed Morrissey are crowing over the latest Obama gaffe:

Throughout our history, America’s confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world.

(Emphasis mine.)

Come on, let’s be fair.  This would make perfect sense (or at least be fully defensible) if he had said “bombs” rather than “bomb”.  That makes this most likely a verbal flub, not evidence of Obama’s appalling ignorance.  It’s hardly worth our attention, particular with such more compelling material available.

That said, it should go without saying that if George W Bush had made the same remark, the left would be crowing about the latest proof of his stupidity.
