Obama Botches Bible Quote; Media Matters Botches Defense

I don't really care a lot that Obama missed a clause in a Bible verse. (He missed the part about "renews their strength" and went right into "soar on wings like eagles.")

But what is Media Matters being paid for? In spinning for the Divine One who can Maketh No Error, they claim, gee whiz, these winguts apparently don't know there is more than one version of the Bible, and Obama was quoting accurately from the New International Version.

Media Matters opines:

This would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

And to prove Obama accurately quoted the New International Version they link the passage in question, which confirms the "renews their strength" part is absent in that translation which also contains the "renews their strength" part, proving that Obama did indeed botch this version of the quotation as well.

They are linking that to prove he accurately quoted from it, apparently not bothering to click on the link themselves and discover, nope, he was wrong according to that version, too.

As Media Matters says:

This would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

I heareth thee, brother. I feeleth thee.

Question: Media Matters is so stupid and makes so many grotesque errors like this -- do you think it's possible they're smart enough to plan these errors just to drive traffic to their site?

Gotta be some reason for the stupidity.

Ahem: "pastordan" at "Religious Dispatches," which seems to be one of those left-wing fake evangelical organizations that's so hot for Obama, makes the same error, following Media Matters.

But like this is supposedly a religious website, right? Unlike Media Matters, they pretend to have a familiarity with the text, right?

So how come they don't bother to check the quote either?

They also get quite huffy that these wingnuts don't understand their Bibles the way the leftwingnuts do.
