During last night’s State of the Union address, Americans were transfixed by the amazing story of Army Ranger Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg. Remsburg, who is still recovering from his profound injuries, was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his heroism.

But according to NBC News’ senior political editor Mark Murray, Remsburg isn’t the only hero around here. There’s someone else who’s faced unimaginable adversity:

Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau sure thinks so:

Favreau had a golden opportunity to take a mulligan on his stupid comment. He didn’t:

Looks like Favreau’s trying to clean up his mess:

Except Favreau’s initial response to Murray’s Remsburg-Obama comparison was “my thoughts exactly.” So we’re gonna go ahead and call B.S. on that lame backpedaling.
