Correction Of The Day

Nov 3 2011 @ 9:32am

From Wednesday’s press briefing at the White House:

MR. CARNEY: Well, I believe the phrase from the Bible* is, "The Lord helps those who help themselves." And I think the point the President is making is that we should — we have it within our capacity to do the things to help the American people.

Amended in the official transcript: 

* This common phrase does not appear in the Bible.
