Obama Fabricated, Hillary Embellished

Hillary's exaggeration of the danger she faced in a war zone is topped by Obama's whopper that the Selma marchers somehow inspired his black father and white mother to become his parents by marching four years after he was born.

Obama? Hillary?

Thank God that the Democrats can only nominate one of them for president!

When rookie presidential hopeful Barack Hussein Obama appeared on ABC's "The View" to hear Barbara Walters opine that he's sexy and to try to distance himself further from Rev. Jeremiah A. "God damn America" Wright,. Jr., the man who supposedly brought him to Jesus Christ, inspired him to title his presidential campaign book "The Audacity of Hope" (after one of Rev. Wright's sermons that Obama admitted in his first book, Dreams from my Father, not only hearing in person, but being brought to tears by), presided over his wedding to Michelle "Black Community first and foremost" Obama and baptized their two daughters.

This time Barack said he would have been "uncomfortable" staying in the Trinity United Church of Christ if Rev. Wright had not retired and expressed sorrow over his hateful, hurtful statements recently brought to the attention of the general public.

It's true that Rev. Wright announced his retirement.

It's NOT true that Rev. Wright had publicly expressed such sorrow.

Perhaps privately to Obama, but don't bet on even a private expression of sorrow to Obama beyond hurting Obama's chance of being elected President of the United States.

When the Wright scandal broke, what Obama initially did was wrong: he claimed ignorance.

When Obama read his "Race in America" speech from a teleprompter a few days later, however, he admitted that he had heard some of Rev. Wright's controversial sermons, but insisted that he had not "heard" the most controversial ones recently publicized.

Maybe that's literally true. But if he had not "heard of" those sermons, then why did he "disinvite" Rev. Wright to speak at the announcement of his presidential campaign last year?

In March of 2007 The New York Times reported that Obama had explained to Rev. Wright that he was "disinvited" because his sermons could be "rough."

If a white Republican conservative presidential candidate had similarly "disinvited" a spiritual mentor of twenty years based on "rough sermons," the mainstream media would have demanded to know just how "rough" those sermons were and why he had waited until he was about to make his presidential candidacy announcement to begin to distance himself from that spiritual mentor.


Perhaps as some sort of affirmative action benefit, Obama got a whole year to prepare for that kind of scrutiny and he still wasn't ready when it finally came.

Now the Obama-entranced mainstream media is excoriated his rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton, for exaggerating the danger she was in when she visited Bosnia while there was a war going on.

Hillary's account of the incident in her autobiography seems to have been fair, but along the campaign trail she added sniper fire that was not there.

Foolish revisionist history exaggerating danger.

But not as bad as Obama's foolish revisionist history when he spoke on March 4, 2007 at a commemoration of the Selma Voting Rights March.

The text quotes Obama as saying "I must send greetings from Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr."

That would be the spiritual mentor from whom Obama is now trying to distance himself.

Then there is the stirring story of how the march inspired Obama's birth.


"What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation. It worried folks in the White House who said, 'You know, we're battling Communism. How are we going to win hearts and minds all across the world? If right here in our own country, John, we're not observing the ideals set fort in our Constitution, we might be accused of being hypocrites.' So the Kennedyís decided we're going to do an air lift. We're going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is.

"This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over to this country. He met this woman whose great great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves; but she had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that the world as it has been it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don't tell me Iím not coming home to Selma, Alabama.

"Iím here because somebody marched. Iím here because you all sacrificed for me...."


Obama was born in 1961.

The Selma Voting Rights March occurred in 1965.

Hillary's exaggeration of the danger she faced in a war zone is topped by Obama's whopper that the Selma marchers somehow inspired his black father and white mother to become his parents by marching four years after he was born.

Andy Martin:

"The truth about Obama is there in plain view. It is there for all of us, and especially the media, to see. But there are 'none so blind as those who will not see, none so deaf as those who will not hear.' And none so stupid as those who consciously avoid the truth because they want to keep on reporting Obamaís lies.

"Both Mr. Obama and the mainstream media owe the American people an explanation and an apology. But donít hold your breath. Obamaís too busy making up new lies to even know what the truth is any more.

"Obama is not part of any 'Joshua Generation.' He has been "joshing"' us all along, and we keep taking it. He may be a Kool-Aid salesman. But we keep buying and keep drinking.

"Two and a half years ago I held a news conference in Chicago to denounce Obama as a fraud. Events since then have all corroborated my facts and confirmed my conclusions. I told you so. In 2004."

Yes, Mr. Martin said it.

Unfortunately, very few read it, because the mainstream media wanted to tell a very different story.
