New President Commits #1 Most Annoying Grammar Mistake!

I watched Obama's first press conference the other night. And while it was wonderful to once again see someone with a brain up there at the podium answering journalists' questions, things took a turn for the worse when Obama described his meeting with President Bush. 

"President Bush graciously invited Michelle and I to visit him and Laura. . . " 

No, dammit, he invited Michelle "and me." Me, me, me, me, me!

I was annoyed when Obama talked about the "exact same" policies...but then the grammar police and I (I!)have decided he is intentionally trying not to alienate the grammatically ignorant who make up most of the country.
