I don't know whether to laugh or cry about this, but I admit it made me smile.

:-)

I'm sorry. This was a trick quiz. All of the correct answers are the same person.
Is it really a trick quiz just because the answers were all the same person?  Doesn't that just make it an easy quiz?

I actually thought they were going to say it was a trick quiz because of the rules:

"The rules are simple. I will give you a quote and you have to guess what great American said it."  [Emphasis added]

Even before reading the question, I thought they'd say something like "Ha!  None of them are great".

Then there's the one in which Obama pronounced "Marine Corps" Marine corpse, like he'd seen the term but never heard it pronounced. Whoa!

Peter,

Just Google any part of the quotations and I'll wager you can find the source, probably right from the horse's mouth on a YouTube video.

This is sad! 
I will admit--I fell for the trick.  There were a few of those quotes where I was thinking, "Oh dear. That sounds like a Bush-oopsy"    How surprising to discover that these all came from our... great... President?  *brief wave of sickness*
   I'll show these to my dad. He'll love 'em.

"I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future". This quote comes up as BOTH from Al Gore and John F. Kerry, but not from Obama.
I have not checked out all the other quotes yet, but I strongly suggest some rigorous fact-checking be done before posting jokes, articles etc. on this excellent site.

President Obama:  2) "I've now been in 57 states I think one left to go."


I took that as humor. It was obvious from the context.

Bloopers and misstatements shouldn't get the focus they do. It distracts from the principles. Just my take on things.

Indeed, but I find some of them very funny.
