David Maraniss is an associate editor at the Washington Post and a high-powered biographer. Below is a jaw-dropping look at Mr. Maraniss’ seeming inability to put history into some kind of context when it comes to one of his own biographical subjects, President Obama:

While President Obama’s speech from last night has been praised by both right and left… The Gettysburg Address?
And again, this isn’t coming from some Obama groupie at MSNBC.
Maraniss is a respected “historian,” someone who writes the first draft of our history when it comes to contemporary politicians like Obama and Bill Clinton.
He’s also beloved by our media.
This was first reported at The Blaze.
