Obama's Uncle Served in Red Army (or, Obama Caught in Another Lie)

Obama's hard-left connections just don't stop. Not only was he mentored in high school by rabidly anti-American Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis, now it turns out he had a close relative in Stalin's Red Army.

Here's B.O. claiming that his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz:

The embellishment about the heroic uncle not coming out of the attic for six months afterward because we didn't have enough government programs to deal with his trauma was a nice touch. But O'Bigot misspoke when he said his uncle was in the American army. Auschwitz is in Poland. It was Russians that drove out the Germans, not Americans.

You can't blame Obama for not realizing that Poland is to the east of Germany. After all, according to the maps used in Obamaland, Kentucky is closer to Arkansas than Illinois.

History isn't his strong suit either. Remember when he claimed that his father was inspired by the Selma marches that started in 1965 to come to America and impregnate a white moonbat in 1960? Barack Senior was also inspired by the stirring words of John and Robert Kennedy, who instituted an airlift to import Africans; never mind that Eisenhower was still President at the time.

Apparently Obama's latest pratfall was intended to make it up to Jews that he hangs out with people who want to kill them.

Don't worry, Barry. The media will cover for you as always. At least you didn't misspell potato.

Let's call a spade a spade here (no pun intended). You and me, we're just regular Joes who can't get away with spouting bullshit to everyone we meet. It's called "lying" and people frown on it, shun you for it...hell, you can even get in legal trouble for it. Except if you're a politician and especially a Democrat. To wit:

"Barack Obama’s campaign scrambled Tuesday to set the record straight about remarks the Democratic presidential candidate made on Memorial Day where he said his uncle helped liberate the Auschwitz death camp at the end of World War II.

There were two obvious problems with the tale: Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Army, and Obama’s American mother was an only child.

As the Republican National Committee seized on the discrepancies, Obama’s campaign clarified that the Illinois senator was actually referring to his “great uncle,” and that he had confused Auschwitz with another concentration camp."

It's just AMAZING how confused these people get over the simplest information. They want to have us grant them the most complex and demanding job in the world, yet then can never seem to remember simple facts about their own family history (especially when the "confused facts" make them look good in a Memorial Day speech). It's a good thing Al Gore invented the internet or we might never find out about stuff like this!

And to the idiot blogger at see-B.S. news who didn't fact check, scrutinize or basically do her job: LMAO....moron

One more thing: It's shameless how B.O. continues to get a pass from the news bolsheviks. Major Garrett reported on it during Brit Hume's program this evening, but I'm certain CNN, MSNBC and the broadcast networks will ignore it.

Well, the media is already in full clean-up/defense mode for Obama. They're claiming he made an innocent slip-up and that the evil conservative bloggers are making a mountain out of a molehill.

Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Treblinka...heck, a death camp's a death camp. Who remembers names? Its only history and the Dems are so good at changing it, its no wonder they don't remember what is truth and what they made up last week.
