Barack Obama’s Gaffe-o-meter … Auschwitz, Buchenwald … Uncle, Great Uncle … What’s the Difference

 

Barack Obama … a typical politician … lie, lie, lie, spin, spin, spin.

Here is the big picture. If a candidate so confuses named, stories and events during a campaign … what does America think they would do as President?

Barack Obama has done it yet again, although this time its hard to believe that he mis-spoke. This was a clear embellishment of the truth. In a Memorial Day speech where Obama stated as he pandered to the veterans in the audience that his uncle was among those who liberated Auschwitz. Really? Was Obama’s uncle a member of the Russian Red Army? Of course, its just a technicality that Obama does not have an uncle, but a great uncle instead.

One would think that when talking to military veterans on Memorial Day that one could get their facts correct. However, not when one is overzealous in their pandering to vets and making a pathetic and lame appeal to the Jewish vote. One really must now question everything that comes out of Obama’s mouth. No one wanted to ever vet the chosen one, Barack Obama. Now it looks like that will come home to haunt Democrats.

The Obama camp was quick to jump in and admit that their candidate mis-spoke. What is most amazing is that Obama was put forth to the voters as the anti-Hillary Clinton. He was a straight shooting and trust worthy. Between his associations with terrorists, sitting in the pews for 20 years and listening to Reverend Wright and his what seems to be a gaffe a day comments, its is hard to even imagine that he is not just like Hillary. Obama’s latest embellishment ranks right up there with Hillary Clinton’s claim that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who climbed Mount Everest.

 

Barack Obama is a Harvard educated graduate who passes himself off as an educated individual. I would have thought much more from an Ivy League scholar to have known the difference between Auschwitz and Buchenwald.

OBAMA’S ‘AUSCHWITZ’ MISTAKE

Here is what Obama said, while talking about post-traumatic stress disorder afflicting veterans, per NBC/NJ’s Adam Aigner-Treworgy and NBC’s Lauren Appelbaum: “I had a uncle who was one of the, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps, and the story in our family was is that when he came home, he just went up into the attic and he didn’t leave the house for six months, right.

      Dreams Of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself..”.

      the GOP is obviously is very happy with these gaffes.
      because then the attention goes to that and the message doesn’t get any attention.

      the point was that his great-uncle didn’t leave the house for 6 months after his war experience.

      THAT was what Obama was saying.

      post-traumatic-stress-disorder wasn’t recognized then.
      now soldiers get send on second tour with ptsd.
      without proper treatment.
      1000 veteran attempt suicide each month!

      but now that message got lost.

      In Canada … unlike the US … there is only one day set aside in November to honor both Veterans and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

      However … I have learned that in May each year … a day set aside to honor those who paid that ultimate sacrifice and … another day is set aside in November for veterans.

      Obviously … Obama was not aware of the difference. However … according to his official website … he is now. History was forever changed in regards to his Memorial Speech of 2008 by utilization of the “delete” key of the computer.

      Obama began his speech yesterday stating:

      “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.”

      But Obama’s line about seeing fallen heroes in the audience was removed from a transcript posted on his website by his official campaign blogger, Sam Graham-Felson.

      “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes, our sense of patriotism is particularly strong,” reads the campaign transcript.

      May 26, 2008 – Thousands of Iraqi and Afghanistan veterans are returning home only to become casualties of war – at their own hands. Suffering from psychiatric injuries, 1,000 VETERANS UNDER VETERANS ADMINISTRATION CARE ARE ATTEMPTING SUICIDE EACH MONTH. Almost 40 percent of the young men and women returning from combat almost have proven mental health injuries that include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, major depression and traumatic brain injury.

      But when they seek help, disabled veterans face a claims system so mismanaged and inefficient that they often must wait more than five years for any assistance. The Department of Veterans Affairs is choking on a backlog of some 600,000 unresolved benefits claims. Even after their eligibility has been established, thousands of veterans cannot obtain adequate mental health treatment. While they wait for the care they are owed, veterans are dying. ABOUT 126 VETERANS PER WEEK COMMIT SUICIDE. Vast numbers of veterans are living with mental illness, sometimes so severe that they are unable to work. Nationally, about 154,000 veterans are homeless on any given night and twice that many are homeless at some time during the year.

      What led these men and women to wear their country’s uniform? What is it that leads anyone to put aside their own pursuit of life’s comforts; to subordinate their own sense of survival, for something bigger – something greater?

      Many of those we honor today were so young when they were killed. They had a whole life ahead of them – birthdays and weddings, holidays with children and grandchildren, homes and jobs and happiness of their own. And yet, at one moment or another, they felt the tug, just as generations of Americans did before them. Maybe it was a massacre in a Boston square; or a President’s call to save the Union and free the slaves. Maybe it was the day of infamy that awakened a nation to a storm in the Pacific and a madman’s death march across Europe. Or maybe it was the morning they woke up to see our walls of security crumble along with our two largest towers.
      ___________________

      What makes a man put on a uniform and put his life on the line for his country? Well, I suppose he wouldn’t if he saw the American Flag and Star Spangled Banner as symbols of oppression. I suppose they wouldn’t if they were in their 40′s and had never been proud of their country.

      What policies is Obama going to change so that America isn’t the oppressor that some believe it to be? I can’t vote for this man if I don’t know what policy changes he intends to make so that he and Michelle can be proud of America and salute our flag.

      Tamikosmom quoted (in response to a previous article) from one of Obama’s books, when Obama writes:

      Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

      Which winds is he talking about? America and Israel would like to know. Anyone considering voting for him should ask that question.

    8. Tamikosmom on May 28th, 2008 3:31 pm

      caesu … your point is well taken. Issues encompassing the lack of emotional and medical care that veterans receive upon returning home from the war zone are very real and … must be addressed.

      However … Memorial Day is a designated day of reflection … a day set aside to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrific in defending our freedoms. Any diversion takes away from that honor.

      Barack Obama’s speech has been edited accordingly on his website … edited to reflect honor to America’s fallen heroes. The segment of his speech regarding his uncle’s untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been omitted. However … the posted transcript does not reflect the actual speech. Listen to the video.

      Obama definitely had a political agenda and … I consider that inappropriate at the least.

      The speech given by President Bush conformed with the significance of the day … the day that is refer to as Memorial Day.

      +++++++++++++

      Black Theology & Black Power (Paperback)

      First published in 1969, “Black Theology & Black Power” provided the first systematic presentation of black theology. Relating the militant struggle for liberation with the gospel message of salvation, James Cone laid the foundation for an original interpretation of Christianity that retains its urgency and challenge today.

      QUOTES – BLACK THEOLOGY AND BLACK POWER

      “Christ is black therefore not because of some cultural or psychological need of black people, but because and only because Christ really enters into our world where the poor were despised and the black are, disclosing that he is with them enduring humiliation and pain and transforming oppressed slaves into liberating servants.” James Cone

      “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.” James Cone

      “In the New Testament, Jesus is not for all, but for the oppressed, the poor and unwanted of society, and against oppressors … Either God is for black people in their fight for liberation and against the white oppressors, or he is not.” James Cone

      – The suicide rate of veterans is at least three times the national suicide rate. In 2005, the suicide rate for veterans 18- to 24-years-old was three to four times higher than non-veterans.
      – About 154,000 veterans nationwide are homeless on any given night. One-fourth of the homeless population is veterans.
      – There are more homeless Vietnam veterans than the number of soldiers who were killed during that war.
      – It takes at least 5.5 years, on average, to resolve a benefit claim with the Veteran’s Administration.
      – More than 600,000 unresolved claims are backlogged with the Veteran’s Administration.

      – 19.5 percent of these veterans report experiencing traumatic brain injury.

      Sermons We See
      Edgar Guest

      I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;
      I’d rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way.

      The eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear,
      Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear;

      And the best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds,
      For to see good put in action is what everybody needs.

      I soon can learn to do it if you’ll let me see it done;
      I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.

      And the lecture you deliver may be very wise and true,
      But I’d rather get my lessons by observing what you do;

      For I might misunderstand you and the high advise you give,
      But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.

      When I see a deed of kindness, I am eager to be kind.
      When a weaker brother stumbles and a strong man stays behind

      Just to see if he can help him, then the wish grows strong in me
      To become as big and thoughtful as I know that friend to be.

      And all travelers can witness that the best of guides today
      Is not the one who tells them, but the one who shows the way.

      One good man teaches many, men believe what they behold;
      One deed of kindness noticed is worth forty that are told.

      Who stands with men of honor learns to hold his honor dear,
      For right living speaks a language which to every one is clear.

      Though an able speaker charms me with his eloquence, I say,
      I’d rather see a sermon than to hear one, any day.

      Put a cork in it, Michelle:
      _____________________
      Mrs. Obama’s remarks were also light on policy–which is understandable. After all, she’s not the one standing for office. But she showed something like contempt for even the idea of actual policy talk. “I know voters like a plan,” she said. “What’s the details, tell me about your policies. Plans are important, I agree. . . . But a lot of this stuff isn’t rocket science.”

      Instead, she voiced deeper concerns: “Barack knows that at some level there’s a hole in our souls,” she said. This was a variation on her normal line that “Barack Obama is the only person in this race who understands that, that before we can work on the problems we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation.”

      I don’t always agree with Red on matters of politics, but I’m with him 100% on his Post #27.

      Let’s get to the good stuff – Scott McClellan’s book.

      This guys book, imo, is yet another half-baked series of potshots against his already reviled bosses. You could tell McClellan knew that he was just another clog in the GOP oil wheel that led us into this disaster, but did he even flinch? Nope.
      This guys pocketbook was more important than concern for his countrymen, let alone the rest of the world. Just like a lot of the Bush crowd, common decency, morality, compassion, scruples, or ethical standards are terms not to be found in his playbook.

      Hey McClellan – give the public something that the law can use against Bush and Cheney, not another disgruntled NeoHawk’s sob story.

      He’s a tool, imo.

      #19 Janet – that’s a cop out and you know it.

      Being a staunch conservative as you are I am sure you read Mr. McCain’s speech.

      +++++++++++

      yoyo … you are wrong. When I said I did not read McCain’s speech … I did not read McCain’s speech and … I still have not read McCain’s speech. Did Clinton make a Memorial Day speech? I have yet to read that either.

      You are right … I am a capital “C” Conservative and … I do desire that the citizens across the border from me DO NOT elect a liberal for their President . However … I am not a part of the American election process so … I remain focused on the Natalee Holloway case and … Barack Obama’s background.

      I thanked Tamikosmom before and I’ll thank her again for doing the research and bringing us some facts. Barack Obama’s own words.

      FWIW, Obama is my senator. I voted for him then. Will never do that again.

      You are welcome LilPuma.

      FYI … I have shared MOST of my research and the research of few others on this issue in the SM Politic Forum … Thread: Is Race an Issue.

      I honestly don’t understand why Obama is under fire just because he is black, or half black for that matter. To say that he is “suddenly very proud of the White side of his family” is obsurd and ignorant. It’s not just the those comments that piss me off it’s the ignorance of the people who will sit there and let a news broadcast brainwash their thoughts and beliefs all together.
