Who would have imagined that a substantial factual error would work its way into Bill Kristol's latest Obama-bashing column? It's almost as if Kristol's a hatchet-man rather than a real journalist.

UPDATE: Note that as of 10:15 AM eastern time, Kristol's column is still featured on the front page of NYTimes.com and there's no correction. Marc Ambinder's item above pointing out the error has circulated all throughout the internet already -- surely the Times could decide to stop misleading its readers.
