QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Obama 2008
+ President Obama during a 2008 presidential debate:
“Now, Senator McCain suggests that somehow, you know, I’m green behind the ears. . . .”
+ President Obama at Monday public appearance:
“. . . for nearly a decade since I was a green-behind-the-ears freshman senator. . . .”
Except it isn’t “green behind the ears.”
It”s “wet behind the ears.”
C’mon, Mr. President.
This isn’t rocket surgery.
