President Obama misquoted the 19th President this morning:
One of my predecessors, Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone, “It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?” That’s why he’s not on Mt. Rushmore — because he’s looking backwards. He’s not looking forwards. He’s explaining why we can’t do something, instead of why we can do something.
In fact, Hayes called the early telephone “wonderful.”
