More Tales Than Scheherazade

Barack loves making up stuff to try and make himself look like a good American. This time he was with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin in the Oval Office July 20 to commemorate the historic Apollo 11 landing.

"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."

Sounds good doesn't it. There's just one little problem. The Apollo 11 splashdown took place on July 24, 1969. Guess where Obama was. He was living in Indonesia and not with his grandfather. So his tale is another fabrication, another lie, another pathetic attempt to paint himself as an all-American child.

If he isn't trying to connect his parents marriage to marches in Selma Alabama that took place years later, or having his relatives liberate Auschwitz when they weren't there, then he's running to the beach in Hawaii all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia. What an amazing life our president has had. Too bad none of it's real. And neither is the great and mighty wizard Ozbama.
