Obama Rewrites History

Barack Obama has been caught fibbing.

In a speech a year ago, Barack Obama credited the Kennedy family with enabling his Kenyan father to study in the U.S., where he met and married Obama’s mother. But now, the Obama campaign has admitted that Obama erred in crediting the Kennedys. Erred or deliberately fabricated so he could tie himself to the Kennedy clan? In fact, Barack Obama Sr. came to the U.S. in September of 1959 in an airlift, while the Kennedy contribution to the program that brought him here was not made until the following year.

This isn't the only history Obama has invented to create convenient roots for himself. In discussing how his parents met, Obama said, “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 Junior was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama.”

In fact, the Selma march occurred four years after Obama’s birth. Mere details to the protege of Jeremiah Wright.
