We have successfully evolved from the bizzaro to the just plain out right truth…Obama is a compulsive liar.
This had slipped past me because frankly I had not read or listened to any of Obama’s speeches pertaining to the Apollo Anniversary until this evening. Thanks to WND for pointing out the obvious.
The timeline as told by Obama himself goes: Obama’s mother married Indonesian, Lolo Soetoro in 1967. Soon after the nuptials, his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, her new husband, Lolo with little Barry in tow, moved to Jakarta, Indonesia where little Barry resided until he was sent back to live with his grandparents in Honolulu at the age of 10. This would have been mid to late 1971 or early to mid 1972. I use the return time in estimates as Obama has only released the fact that he returned at age 10. No real specifics you know, that would be revealing too much personal information.
In, Obama’s speech on July 20th, he recalls quite an embellished account of the historical facts:
“The country continues to draw inspiration from what you’ve done. I should note, just personally, I grew up in Hawaii, as many of you know, and I still recall sitting on my grandfather’s shoulders when those capsules would land in the middle of the Pacific and they’d get brought back and we’d go out and we’d pretend like they could see us as we were waving at folks coming home. And I remember waving American flags and my grandfather telling me that the Apollo mission was an example of how Americans can do anything they put their minds to.”
According to NASA records, there were only 2 manned Apollo missions during Obama’s time in Hawaii that would have taken place after Obama’s 10th birthday, April of ’72 and Dec of ’72, and I find it highly unlikely that his grandfather would be hoisting a 10 1/2 to 11 year old husky boy up on his shoulders. Then, maybe he was recalling previous unmanned missions when he was 3-5 yrs old. If that was the case, why embellish the historic occasions with fictitious stories from his over active imagination? Why not recall those missions he supposedly watched for their historic significance?
They weren’t about “HIM”!
Thus, here endeth another factual lesson on the Obama lies.
