Facts To Digest

Most of us are familiar with the gaffe by President Obama  “…..57 states.”   Sara Palin’s misquote on seeing Russia and all the Bushisms plus the “Miss me Yet” billboards.

What has happened recently in our government misspeaks?  Let’s look.

Biden:  (He’s too easy to make fun of so will only include 2 gaffes)

“People, when I say that, look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?” he said at a stop in Virginia. “The answer is yes.”

In a Sept. 22, 2008, CBS interview, Biden misspoke when he said Franklin D. Roosevelt was president when the stock market crashed in 1929.

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,” he said. Herbert Hoover — not Roosevelt — was president in 1929, and television had not yet been invented in 1929.

Senate Marority H. Reid (Again this target is too easy)

“Negro” dialect. Reid was quoted in “Game Change,” a book about the 2008 election, as saying Barack Obama would be helped by being a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Reid apologized.

Cheering lost jobs. Commenting on the better-than-expected jobs report in March, Reid said on the Senate floor: “Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”

President Barack Obama (again too easy.)

 Last May, he claimed that Kansas tornadoes killed a whopping 10,000 people: “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” The actual death toll: 12.

Pesident Obama claims that Bloody Sunday is what brought his parents together.  Bloody Sunday happened in 1965 and he was born in 1961. 

In his book he misrepresents his uncle’s role in freeing a holocaust death camp in Germany.  The Red army freed that camp not the USA-Auschwitz.

“Then, there’s the copy of Life magazine that Obama presents as his racial awakening at age 9. In it, he wrote, was an article and two accompanying photographs of an African-American man physically and mentally scarred by his efforts to lighten his skin. In fact, the Life article and the photographs don’t exist, say the magazine’s own historians.”

As one prominent news caster said after the 2008 elections, “We really don’t know a lot about this man.”  Another prominent radio talk show host said from the beginning that we know this man through his associates, his pastor, and who he reads.  He also declared “I hope he fails”.  History will prove who had the best vision for our great USofA
