A few days before his much publicized trip to the Middle East, Barack
Obama makes yet another historical gaffe while speaking to a group of
supporters in West Lafayette, Indiana, about the importance of national
security. Obama begins the speech by talking about the “constantly
evolving danger” that has faced America throughout the years. According
to Obama, who grew up in Hawaii, one of those dangers was “the bomb
that fell on pearl harbor.”
Don’t forget to read this one too: Another Obama Goof-Up – They Just Keep Coming!
I was forwarded two(2) hilarious emails regarding presidential hopeful Barack Hussein Obama overnight. These are just too funny to keep to myself, so I post them here for worldwide enjoyment:
Email #1: Subject – Obama, The New Quayle
ABC reporter Jake Tapper (on
his blog) suggests Barack Obama has a problem: "The man has been a
one-man gaffe machine."
Stupid Obama quotes:
In Sunrise, Fla., Obama said, "How’s it
going, Sunshine?" He did the same thing in Sioux Falls, S.D., calling
it "Sioux City."
When asked why Hillary Clinton trounced him in Kentucky, Obama claimed
"I’m not very well known in that part of the country … Sen. Clinton,
I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas.
So it’s not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of
those states in the middle." But Obama’s home state of Illinois is more
than "near" Kentucky — it borders Kentucky.
Obama said in Oregon, of his long campaign, "I’ve been in 57 states, I think,…"
"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen
heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our
sense of patriotism is particularly strong." (Obama has a Sixth Sense?!)
"We only have a certain number of them [Arabic Translators] and if they are all in Iraq,
then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan,". But
Afghans don’t speak Arabic; they speak several other languages.
Thursday – Orlando: he would meet with Chavez
to discuss "the fermentation of anti-American sentiment in Latin
America, his support of FARC in Colombia and other issues he would want
to talk about."
Friday – Miami: he insisted any country
supporting the Marxist guerrillas of FARC should suffer "regional
This left Obama advisers scrambling to suggest that these
two opposing statements can somehow be put together, that he can meet
Chavez and isolate him at the same time.
In Selma, Ala., Obama claimed that the spirit of hope derived from the
civil rights protests in Selma in 1965 inspired his birth. Obama was born in 1961 – FOUR YEARS before the Selma March ever happened.
AGAIN in Selma – Barack claimed it was the Kennedy family that made it
possible for his father (then in Kenya) to come to the United States
for a college education. Barack
said “folks in the White House” wanted to “win hearts and minds all across the world.” “So the
Kennedy’s decided, ‘We’re going to do an
airlift. We’re going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans
over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can
learn what a wonderful country America is.’" “This young man named
Barack Obama got one of those tickets and
came over to this country. He met this woman whose
great-great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves … So they got
together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.” The Washington Post pointed out that Barack’s father came here in September 1959 in an
airlift of 81 Kenyan students. BUT the Kennedy contribution was not made until the following year – in 1960.
Obama also (according to CBS reporter/blogger Maria Gavrilovic) talked
to about post-traumatic stress disorder by claiming he had an uncle "who
was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz,"
and then came home and spent six months in an attic. Gavrilovic didn’t
note that the prisoners at Auschwitz were liberated by the Red Army.
Obama earlier made the claim on his campaign site that his grandfather
knew American troops who liberated Auschwitz and Treblinka (also
liberated by the Red Army).
DAN QUAYLE MUST BE ASKING "HEY – WHERE IS THE PRESS HYSTERIA?!"
Don’t worry Dan, you’re looking pretty poetic to us now…and at least you aren’t also an opportunistic LIAR.
Email #2: Subject – Kinda Interesting!?
From Rush Limbaugh’s radio show yesterday…..
Hey, folks, you want to tweak the Drive-By Media with me right now?
You are aware, probably, that Barack Obama lost his bearings recently and said that he had campaigned in 57 states.
You heard this? And everybody chalked it up to, "Well, he’s tired."
You know, this is a Dan Quayle moment. I mean, Dan Quayle goes out there and misspells "potato," and we still hear jokes about it.
Barack Obama says he’s gonna go out and campaign in 57 states; he was just tired, you know; it’s been such a long campaign; he’s been so many places; he probably thinks there are 57 states.
Well, I have here a printout from a website called the International Humanist and Ethical Union . And here is how the second paragraph of an a rticle on that website begins:
"Every year from 1999 to 2005 the organization of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states presented a resolution to the United Nations Commission on human rights called combating."
Obama said he’s going to campaign in 57 states, and it turns out that there are 57 Islamic states. There are 57 Islamic states.
So did Obama just lose his bearings, or was this a more telling slip, ladies and gentlemen?
