Obama's Memorial Day Whoppers

LAS CRUCES, N.M -- Despite not having served in the military himself, Barack Obama used his Memorial Day remarks to speak about his familyís service.  "My grandfather marched in Pattonís army, but I cannot know what it is to walk into battle like so many of you," he told a small group of veterans here. 

And speaking of his typical white grandmother, he said -- "My grandmother worked on a bomber assembly line, but I cannot know what it is for a family to sacrifice like so many of yours have."  

Obama also spoke about his typical white uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz.  He said the family legend is that, upon returning from war, his uncle spent six months in an attic.

First lie! -- Wow!  Very dramatic! The problem is that Auschwitz of course is in Poland.  It was liberated by the Red Army on January 27th, 1945.  Poland, on most maps is usually placed to the east of Germany, although we may need to investigate the geography textbooks the Obamessiah used as a child.

The Allies were wrapping up the battle of the bulge in late January of 1945 -- the Rhine crossings were still well into the future when Auschwitz was liberated.

Either Obamaís uncle served in the Red Army, or heís spinning Clintonesque lies about Auschwitz to sell his government programs. Hey, itís for a good causeÖbut itís not enough for him. It has to be personal. It has to be all about him.

Second lie! -- Obama has no uncles.  His mother Anna was an only child, and Obama Sr. had two sisters.

Oh, it's not a lie, his campaign says he made a mistake -- he just made another gaffe in the growing collection of documented Obama's gaffes -- it was his great-uncle and it was a sub-camp of Buchenwald, but who cares about these little details, right?

AGAIN? -- well, it turns out that he's
told this tale before, in 2002 -- except he identifies his typical white grandfather as the liberator.

"My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Pattonís army.  He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka.  He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain."


Third lie! -- Obama's grandfather enlisted on June 18, 1942.

Fourth lie!
-- In his autobiography, "Dreams of My Father," Obama states his grandfather never engaged in combat.  "Gramps returned from the war never having seen real combat, and the family moved to California, where he enrolled at Berkeley under the GI bill."  -- Berkeley??????

Two Year-Old Lie
Responding to criticism of his disrespect of the flag of the United States during the National Anthem, Obama defended himself by saying "My grandfather taught me how to say the Pledge of Allegiance when I was 2."

He didn't even remember what he was doing on September 17th, when Obama, Hillary and Bill Richardson attended the Steak Fry of Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) in Indianola, IA.

How can he possibly remember what happened when he was two years old?  Do you know anyone that remembers events when they were two?

You Decide
At a town hall meeting in Kokomo, IN, Obama, responding to a question, referred to the time last October, when a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, TV reporter asked him why he didnít wear a flag pin.

"Then I was asked about this in Iowa," Obama said.  "And somebody said 'Why donít you wear a flag pin?'  I said, well, sometimes I do, sometimes I donít.  I said, although I will say that sometimes I notice that theyíre people who wear flag pins but they donít always act patriotic.  And I was specifically referring to politicians, not individuals who wear flag pins, but politicians who you see wearing flag pins and then vote against funding for veterans, saying we canít afford it."

Obama then proceeds, in a magnificent example of hypocritical chutzpah, to call bloggers who accurately reported his words liars.

"So I make this comment.  Suddenly a bunch of these, you know, TV commentators and bloggers (say) 'Obama is disrespecting people who wear flag pins.'  Well, thatís just not true. Also, another way of saying it is, itís a lie."

Obamaís two radically different versions of his reasons for not wearing the pin are there for you to read. You decide whoís telling the truth.
Crotch Salute
Obama traveled Monday to Independence, Missouri, to proclaim his patriotism in an appearance linked to the Fourth of July holiday.  He said: "I will never question the patriotism of others in this campaign, and I will not stand idly by when I hear others question mine."

Obama is a damned, sneaky bastard.  He knows he doesn't have to question the patriotism of others, meaning John McCain, of course, because he has a core group of surrogates that have been performing this nasty "artful" work for some time.

On July 8th, George McGovern argued that John McCain's war experience was not a qualification for the White House, saying, "But I don't recall ever saying that experience as a bomber pilot equipped me to be very strong on how to run a war, how to command the armed forces.  Of course, John McCain never said it was either.

In June, Wesley Clark dismissed the import of McCainís military background in the current race. "I donít think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president," Clark sniffed.  The real issue, according to Clark, was that McCain was "untested and untried."  Again, John McCain never said it was.

But CNN's, John Roberts, pointed out the most glaring contradiction in Clark's theory of military experience: his enthusiastic endorsement of the treacherous John Kerry, whose strategic command experience was nowhere near McCain's.

Jim Webb didn't have any problem using his military service to run against George Allen, but now he says, "Let's get the politics out of the military, take care of our military people, or have our political arguments in other areas."

Rand Beers, a former Clinton White House aide, was appearing at the McCain University, a day-long symposia attacking Senator McCain hosted by John Podesta's Center for American Progress, and he, too, went after Senator McCain for his service with an equally outrageous statement.

Beers attacked Senator McCain, saying that he was isolated during the Vietnam years, causing him to miss all the social revolutions going on in the 1960s.  Yes, he was isolated.  He was in a prison cell in North Vietnam.  And he said because he was captured, his national security experience in that regard is sadly limited -- pretty outrageous comments.

In May, Tom Harkin told reporters on a conference call, "He (McCain) comes from a long line of just military people, so I think his whole worldview, his life view has been shaped from a military viewpoint, and he has a hard time thinking beyond that, and I think he's trapped in that. And I think that can be pretty dangerous."

On April 7th, Senator Jay Rockefeller, in an interview with The Charleston Gazette, said, "McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesnít know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues."

The Obama Campaign doesn't want the conversation to be about military experience, foreign relations or qualification to run our nations defense -- how convenient, since Obama has no experience with any of them.

Obama has less than zero military and defense experience, and his foreign relations experience is limited to being the chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee's 11-member Subcommittee on European Affairs.

The committee's jurisdiction includes the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which has been providing military support to Afghanistan since it assumed authority for the International Security Assistance Force mission in 2003.

As subcommittee chairman, Obama could have held hearings pertaining to the role of NATO in the war in Afghanistan, but he has not held a single hearing

He's far too busy bamboozling, hoodwinking, and okie doke'ing his way to the White House.

"I donít care what they say about me but I love this country too much to let them take over another electionÖ"
