I’ve not be too involved in the election cycle this year, but even in my insulated state I’ve heard more than my fair share of Obama gaffes. I can not understand why some believe he’s so smart; he’s just not. In the past week, this is what I’ve witnessed:
-Obama’s been to most of our “57 states”
- Obama’s uncle helped free the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz. The only problem is that the Soviets freed Auschwitz. Unless his uncle was a Red (which would be quite interesting if true) this just isn’t possible.
-Obama believes we need to get out of Iraq so we can send Arabic linguists to Afghanistan, even though Afghans don’t speak Arabic.
-Obama does not know what Memorial Day memorializes; on Memorial Day he claimed there were “fallen heroes” among the military audience members.
Four major lies or gaffes or mistakes, depending on the degree of responsibility you wish to assign to him. For a comprehensive list of lies, click here.
Obama is not a political panacea. He is only just barely literate. And he’s a coke addict. Say what you will about Bill Clinton (and heaven knows I do), at least he had the acute political instinct to lie about his illegal drug usage.
