Bynum's AP story, as carried at the Charlotte Observer and WSAV in Savannah (but oddly not present at the AP's national site), covered up the gaffe by putting words Obama didn't say into his mouth
"If we don't deepen our ports all along the Gulf — (and in) places like Charleston, S.C., or Savannah, Ga., or Jacksonville, Fla. — if we don't do that, these ships are going to go someplace else and we'll lose jobs," Obama said.

The one thing I have learned about Obama in the five years he's been prez is whatever he says, believe just the opposite. He said this would be THE most transparent administration ever, and look what we have now! As far as the Domestic Spying Program goes, I can almost guarantee (based on what the IRS has done) that if Obama's people wanted to know what some influential Republicans are discussing and where they might be getting donations, they would NOT hesitate to find an excuse to listen in.

Obama has just told a big fat lie. So is he implying that all the information Snowden released fake? US leaders are very brave when they lie. I guess that old saying that if you tell the same big lie enough times people will start to believe it holds some truth.
