6. President Barack Obama, on Medal of Honor recipient Jared Monti

While Obama's botching of the history-making railroad line's name made us laugh, reliving his slip-up with fallen soldier Jared Monti's Medal of Honor is enough to make anyone squirm. While speaking to soldiers this past June, the president said of Jared Monti, 2011's honoree:
 
"I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn't receiving it posthumously."

Unfortunately, Monti died in 2006. Erf.
