Obama Lies About Holocaust for Political Gain.

This is sickening. Barack Obama, on the campaign trail, said his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz. He then said

“Now obviously, something had really affected him deeply, but at that time there just weren’t the kinds of facilities to help somebody work through that kind of pain,” Obama said. “That’s why this idea of making sure that every single veteran, when they are discharged, are screened for post-traumatic stress disorder and given the mental health services that they need – that’s why it’s so important.”

Look, we all know Obama has a problem with Jewish voters and veterans, but trying to use the Holocaust for political gain is sickening -- especially when it is a bold faced lie.

Obama might also want to reflect on Gerald Ford's 1976 declaration about Poland being "independent and autonomous." In addition to his shameless use of the holocaust for political gain, he does not know his history.

Auschwitz is in Poland. It was liberated by the Soviets on January 27, 1945, not by Americans. Obama's uncle was either part of the Red Army or Obama is, again, lying for political advantage. Given what we know already about Obama, either option is plausible, but I'm going with this being another lie.

What's worse is that he is using the freaking Holocaust to both ingratiate himself with Jewish voters and veterans while using the lie to justify expanding a federal program.

For months now we've seen Obama lie through his teeth to pander to voters. The media has not once called him on it. Will they now that he has brought the holocaust into his lies? Will they now that he stoops this low to pander to Jewish voters?

Its no longer about Obama having no shame. This man has no class.

and we already have a daily gaffe. Somebody could start a gaffe/lie of the the day email, with new material every day.

The only good part of an Obama presidency will be the gaffe calendar.

When Bush misspeaks, its because he is stupid. When McCain does it, its because he is old and senile. When Obama does it, well, it would have to be reported for anyone to know about, now wouldn't it.

Come put a caption on this gaffe: "I see many fallen soldiers here in the audience today".

Have you added to the population of the McCain 2008 minicity yet today?

When President Bush misspeaks, it is because he is a stupid brain-dead draft dodger who became president because of his father.... (yet the left had no problem with Clinton's ACTUAL draft dodging)

When McCain misspeaks it is because he is a mentally confused old codger who should be ignored.

When Obama misspeaks it is because we are too racist and not nuanced enough to understand his true meaning.

Ahh... the predictability of the Left.

Was his uncle another strong influence on him? If so, it would seem to make sense that he would have been a member of the Red Army.

Maybe his uncle was a member of the Communist Red Army of the USSR?

Why not? His family seems to be pretty marxist heavy. heh.

Obama really ought to just go away. He serves no positive purpose. He and his wife are radical liberals and apparently pretty racist.

is actually talking about this right now.

Nice timing.

Blessed art thou Obama, maker of heaven and earth, who sustains all life except the unborn and holds the universe in the palm of your greased up hand.

Fight On!

He is The One. The Messiah. Don't try to make sense of what he says, or argue with it. The Word of Obama is The Truth. He is the The Way, The Truth, and The Light.

“.....women and minorities hardest hit”

I read some of the comments from the actual story, and one claimed that his mom was an only child. Keep in mind his father was Kenyan. Thus, that would mean he didn't have an uncle that could have served with Patton. Someone needs to do some fact checking.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor

The Provocateur

Has Obama not already parted the Red Sea, called water from rocks, bought Real Estate on the cheap, slept 20 years in church...

The sometimes usual fact checkers, Drive By Media, has seen this guy walk on water and seen Lazarus at the DNC. There will be little fact checking on this guy except from the Racist,Zionist,Homophob, mean spirited, hate filled, lunnies like Hannity, Rush, Laura, Michelle Milkin...

Just look at the past, Dan Rather... facts do not matter when you have the daily microphone of the left.

He doesn't even have the Uncle to misinterpret. Unless he considers his disowned pastor as an uncle.

I got an uncle in the states who is a surgeon, he's fairly rich and rolls with other rich jewish professionals. I call the guy a latte liberal, he is one of those rich guys who is a self described socialist, I think you may know the type. Life long democrat.

He is voting for Johnny Mac in the general. Why? Ill use his quote: I dont appreciate being called a dirty jew.

Obamas connection with the wrong Rev Wright has poisoned the guy for the jewish vote. This latest gaffe wont help but the damage is already done.

Olberman would say it was his uncle Tom.

Hoping that they'll overlook that cut-n-run personality.

Whoever's writing this stuff for Bambi needs to be fired, perhaps flogged.

Unfair. Unbalanced. Unmedicated. -- IMAO

Oooh, he din't just say that...

You're right, blooch, that was harsh...maybe just sent to the showers.

"ma deuce says no truce"

It's neither fair nor smart to indict someone based on what a CBS reporter says. If someone could point to audio or video of Obama saying it himself, on the other hand, this story would indeed be big.

It doesn't matter anyawy, because he has an out: It's all part of the family "Legend", and he only used the "legend"--as told to him--to symbolically represent the mental health issues of returning soldiers, and you may question him on the issues, but he's got a real problem with you when you cast aspersions on his family members. Check tomorrow and see how close I spun it.

"ma deuce says no truce"--according to legend, tail art on Joe McCarthy's B66 "Obliterator" during WWII

Joe McCarthy's B66 "Obliterator" during WWII

Not to pick on you blooch (honest!), but is this another obama gaffe? The B66 was a twin-engine jet bomber that appeared during the 1960s or so....

Dang, I just picked the number out of thin air....had no idea there was actually a B66! I was going to call it the "B666", but figured that was too obvious. I was just trying to illustrate how "Family Legend" gives Obama wiggle room on this gaffe ;)

"ma deuce says no go, Joe"

Joe McCarthy's airplane may have been a B24 'Liberator', which had two .50 cals in the tail gunners position. I'm not realy sure about this because Joe was in the Marine Corps and they didn't have any B24s although the Navy did. "Tail Gunner Joe" would have sat there for his 12 or 32 'combat missions'! The B26 'Marauder' did see some service in the Pacific theater but by the US Army Air Corps so it is unlikely that a Marine Corps officer would fly as a tail gunner! Early models of the B25 'Mitchell' did see service in the Pacific theater and had a tailgunner but that was eliminated in the 'B' and subsequent variations. The B25 was mostly used by the Army Air Corps in WWII!

Still curious though! BTW the .50 cal machine gun installed in those aircraft was probably an M2 machine gun. The M2 ws originally designed before WWII and is switchable from either left hand or right hand belt feed to accommodate its installation in aircraft.

omnia dicta fortiora si dicta Latina

Not even sure if there was "tail art"--unless you count the famous backside of Betty Grable.

Would that the fact-checkers at CBS were as thorough as RedStaters!! LOL

"ma deuce says no truce"--a made-up slogan that blooch writes on crack'n peel paper with a sharpie and adds to leftie sloganwagens of opportunity. Maybe some of our Southern trolls recognize it.

but that wouldn't stop a tail gunner painting his slogan near his position.
Flashy stuff like that improved morale and since the aircraft didn't have any camo paint scheme they pretty much could do what they wanted.

Can't do that nowadays with the specialized coatings (note I said coatings, not paint!) and specific pattern schemes!

Kick the tires and light the fires!

BTW, the concept of tail art was where I got my idea for adding subversive confusion to preachy leftie bumpers.

"ma deuce says no truce"

not too subtle messages get chalked onto certain pieces of 'gravity accelerated ordnance' as they are being loaded onto the 'heavier than air materiel transport systems'! (translation: bombs loaded on aircraft)

neca eos omnes, deus suos agnoscet

no longer allowed inflammatory or obscene messages to be written on bombs and missiles, presumably to deny the enemy propaganda fodder...hope I'm wrong. The left went into high dudgeon about Israeli kids writing on bombs and missiles during the recent Lebanon incursion.

Sit em in a room with Al Gore and Ralph Nader until they rediscover the joy of laughter.

Those planes in general weren't coming back.

To the heavy bomber, and her crew.

As wounded Staff Sgt. John Hill was helped from his B-17 bomber after a raid on Jan. 13, 1943, the commander of the 305th Bomb Group, Col. Curtis LeMay came up and said:

"Don't worry, that bullet didn't have your name on it."

"No," replied Hill, "but it had 'To whom it may concern' on it."

"ma deuce says no truce"

limited...not PC ya know! There are some 'official' embellishments that are done, ususally to temporarily honor something or someplace! They're ususally applied for a special ceremony, like the first of a type arriving at the base, etc. Soon after the ceremony its taken off. I have a funny story about something like that, but this isn't the place for it!

At least that was the policy when I was active. The actual policy can change with each new AF Chief of Staff.

Laudator Temporis Acti

Neil is right of course the young men in those planes for the most part weren't coming back. The art though is part of a time that we have killed with political correctness. Sorry to see it go.

They also say the naked women distracted the heck out of the Japanese.

- "Make love not war? Real men can do both!"

I recognize that you posted links to news reports on the speech; but it was such an astounding gaffe, that I had to watch the speech for myself. I didn't hear any mention of Auschwitz or his uncle in the speech.

Was this remark made after the speech when talking with reporters, or did the reporters simply get it wrong?

Question-and-answer period (of course; this thing happens mostly when he deviates from the script). Mark's video above has it, starting somewhere around the 5 minute mark; the sound quality is miserable around the Auschwitz comment, but Hot Air notes that the WaPo heard it that way.

I'll be nice and note that there's a decent case to be made that this is just another example about how Senator Obama's history teachers, frankly, sucked.

The Fuzzy Puppy of the VRWC. I've been usurped!

That's why they cheered Molotov-Ribbentrop. That's why they sneered when Bush hailed them as an ally.

and the Gdansk Shipyard Strikes really sent them over the edge for good.

"ma deuce says no truce"

and that is 99% Christian is just to un-PC for a post-modern world.

This isn't the first time Obama's talked about a crazy uncle in the attic. Here's the link from CNN in November:

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2007/11/03/obama-cheney-the-crazy-u...

This leads me to ask whether Dick Cheney liberated Auschwitz.

According to them:

"Senator Obama’s family is proud of the service of his grandfather and uncles in World War II – especially the fact that his great uncle was a part of liberating one of the concentration camps at Buchenwald. Yesterday he mistakenly referred to Auschwitz instead of Buchenwald in telling of his personal experience of a soldier in his family who served heroically."

Link here.

Problem with this story is if he's so "proud" of it, why doesn't he know the story himself? Is the story even accurate? After embellishing the story and exaggerating it with a more popularly known event for political gain... call me skeptical.

I still think he owes people an apology.

- "Make love not war? Real men can do both!"

In World War II, and certainly in Vietnam, we didn't have the concept of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome, right, so they basically had to handle it on their own.
::
But at that time there just weren't the kinds of facilities to help somebody work through that kind of pain.

Keeping the audience enthralled by his conveniently-elaborated story, the Senator subtly illustrated his grand narrative--that government trumps all human institutions--by sweeping under the rug all those "facilities" to which earlier generations of returning veterans turned in their distress--faith, family, community--reducing the effective number to "liquor and drugs".

And who did those your uncle liberated turn to, Senator?

knows that PTSD is just a fancy phrase for shell shock...I would hope that people who continue to think that everything that happens today is somehow new spend some time looking at old footage of WWI and WWII...but the biggest difference is that the greatest generations didn't have a bunch of politicians USING them to forward a political agenda...the US just got down to the business of helping them collectivly!

that if pressed the campaign will state that since the 2 conditions are not precisely equivalent, he "really meant" that "previous generations didn't know either the particular details we now know, or the particular treatment details we now employ". But those previous generations certainly knew the substance of the reality.

soli Deo gloria

Come on guys. Obama meant Buchenwald not Auschwitcz.

Senator Obama's family is proud of the service of his grandfather and uncles in World War II - especially the fact that his great uncle was a part of liberating one of the concentration camps at Buchenwald. Yesterday he mistakenly referred to Auschwitz instead of Buchenwald in telling of his personal experience of a soldier in his family who served heroically," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton this afternoon in a statement, which also clarified that the great-uncle "Served in the 89th Infantry Division that Liberated Ohrdruf, a Subcamp of Buchenwald, the First Camp Liberated by Americans, on April 4, 1945."

Its not like he lied about the WMDs in Iraq like your hero Shrub did.

Sorry Moe, I'm just saving you the trouble.

OK, it was his great-uncle, and a different concentration camp, but I guess every thing he does is pure evil because he's not the Republican nominee, and you're basically just a shill.

because he has a "d" after his name, and so will keep the abortion flame burning.
