Look up in the sky … it’s a bird … no it’s a plane … no it’s
Superman. No it’s just Barack Obama once again claiming to be something that he is not. Barack Obama claimed to be a member of the US. Senate Banking Committee, which he is not. Barack Obama also claims to be a lot of other things as well, but he is not. When we look to see who is actually on the US Banking Committee, Obama’s name is no where to be found.
Responding to an Israeli reporter’s question Wednesday on his commitment to protect the Jewish state, Barack Obama pointed to a bill “we passed” in the U.S. Senate Banking Committee that tightens sanctions and authorizes divestment from Iran. “My committee,” he called it. Except that he isn’t a member of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. “Just this past week, we passed out of the out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee – which is my committee – a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon,” Obama said at a press conference in Sderot, Israel.

However, once again Barack Obama uses a lack of sleep for his error. If Obama cannot handle the rigors of campaigning to be President, how will he deal with the sleeplessness of the actual job? The Obama camp has made John McCain’s age an issue, maybe they should be more concerned with providing their candidate with an ample supply of No-Doz, Jolt and Red Bull.
In a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday, Obama told the former Israeli Prime Minister, “I could fall asleep now standing up,” after Netanyahu asked him how his whirlwind trip to the Middle East and Europe is going.

Yet Mr. Smooth Operator over there effortlessly lied about his involvement with the committee. Why? To boost his credentials? To try and hide his lack of experience? To make himself look more serious on the threat from Iran? Who knows? The thing is, it doesn’t matter why he did it. Either he lied, or he was mistaken. And if he was mistaken, then he still doesn’t get a pass. Do we really want a President who has no clue whatsoever what committees he serves on and what his responsibilities are?
