Missed your morning paper, Mr. President?

"In case you missed it, this week there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died--an entire town destroyed."

-President Barack Obama, on a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people

Do you think this amendment abuse is:
Horrendous, Heinous, or Hilarious?

Update (6/7): It was brought to our attention by a visitor that this amendment abuse have a source. President Obama's comments were made at a campaign rally in Richmond, VA. His remarks and gaffe are covered here at MSNBC and here at Fox News. 

They may be an interesting topic to discuss. 
Politicians, company CEOs, and even parents can often get caught up in the "fervor" of an environment and make grave communication errors to help their cause. How damaging is this amendment abuse?

just another example of how playing the media game right can put an unqualified man into the most powerful position in the entire world... sad really.
