It is no hypocritical it is simply wrong! This is not a matter of debate even, it is simply falsifying an event that happened less than 4 years ago. It would be like claiming that the GOP controlled the House in 2007 and then arguing a point on that basis.

Also, you actually think you're going to get a correction, even if your point is correct? Good luck with that.
In these situations I always do this even if the chances are slim. It eliminates the I did not know and nobody asked me to excuses later.
