Obama’s father was born in 1936. He was nine years old when WWII ended. He must have served in the infantry.
h/t to Dave G
He’s a mess…..
But it seems to go with the territory
I really, really, really hate to defend this scumbag. But I’m fairly certain he meant to say his maternal grandfather who did indeed serve in WWII.
“Dunham, the man whom Barack Obama would one day call Gramps, was a 26-year-old supply sergeant stationed near the English Channel with the U.S. Army Air Forces when the invasion of Normandy at last began. Six weeks later, he crossed the Channel, too, and followed the Allied front across France. A year later, he was on track to fight in Japan when the atom bomb sent him home instead.”
Still, I liked the infantry joke!
They must have forgotten to put the word “grand” on the teleprompter.
I had not thought of that!
Probably Special Forces, Green Beret at that age!
Uh, oh! Mr. Teleprompter is going to get a good tongue lashing from the administration!
He also said that his Grand Father presumably on his mother’s side helped liberate Auschwitz, which was “liberated” by the Red Army. The sad thing is that he said that before he was elected, but people still voted for him even though the statement demonstrates dishonesty and a basic historical ignorance.
For some reason all Donks embellish their personal and family histories. Hillary, Biden et al have all pulled these types of stunts.
Hillary blew it when she told that tale about being under fire, corkscrew landing, thing in Bosnia. Then went on to claim, over and over, that Chelsey was at the WTC at 9/11, even though Chelsey was saying it wasn’t true at the same time.
In Hilliary’s mind a lot of things are true that have NO basis in reality!
No, had Hillary blown it we would never have mey Monica!
lmao!! Very nice Gator!
I doubt that very much Gator but I get it, HAHAHA!
Quite the whopper. But there is little about this guy that is straight up. He could have slipped too, remembering a true father, not Obama Sr., who apparently had no interest in his “son”.
Frank Marshall Davis was old enough, but no mention of service. And commie slimebags would have avoided service.
Speaking of Vets this Joe Romm character is certifiable. Between Romm & Jimmie Death Trains Hansen I’m starting to think that warmist are all just frustrated science fiction writers.
Eh … what’s a little fibbing when there’s a cult of personality to build? (Rule #1 from the Leftist’s political handbook)
“Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”
It is obvious that he meant his grandfather.
The real issue here is that when this website continues to call him a liar when the mistake is abvious, then the credibility of this website is very questionable. You only hurt your own cause by continuing your own lie. It is true that the rabid fans will be impressed with your article. However, you turn off people of normal intelligence.
It seems that once a news outlet adopts a cause, the truth no longer matters.
But could he see Alaska from his house in Hawaii?
Perhaps his purported grandfather is his father, and his mother is an unknown black woman. This would explain how his sister (pretending to be his mother) was happy to leave him with “the grandparents” and how she so swiftly recovered from her supposed labour.
(Hey, if Andrew Sullivan can theorise …)
Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim,
lighten up. There’s this invention called laughter. Look it up on the internet. You could use a little of it. Or do you also need a teleprompter in front of you telling you when to laugh?
I worry that Obama doesn’t even know what year it is too.
He signed the Buckingham Palace guest book with 2008 last week.
Oh please, Jim: Where does this website “call him a liar”? Because it doesn’t, that makes you the fibber.
The implication is that he lied. A legitimate, honest website would not state that Obama Claims That His Father Served in WWII. A legitimate, honest website would state that Obama mistakenly referred to his father serving in WWII when he meant his grandfather. Of course, this would not be very newsworthy and it would not result in a lot of idiots defaming the person who happens to be tha President Of The United States of America. Obama is wrong on CO2 warming the planet, but the best way to promote the truth is to be truthful and honest. Stupidity should not be used to fight stupidity. And, dishonesty is just not a good policy.
Sorry, I meant to say “*don’t* press the red button”
Yes, the MSM is always open minded and corrects mistatements inadvertently made by people all the time……………..
……………..as long as they are liberals.
Anyone else gets worked over the coals. I suppose you are spending alot of your time informing them how dishonest they are and asking them to correct the “mistatements”.
Obama claims that he is a Muslim
Liberals are so used to the media carrying their water, Jim actually thinks a website should put words into the POTUS’s mouth that he didn’t say, just so he doesn’t look bad.
Yes, this is how a statement by the POTUS should be reported:
“A legitimate, honest website would state that Obama mistakenly referred to his father serving in WWII when he meant his grandfather.”
If your goal is to protect him and get him reelected. Which is the primary function of MSNBC, NBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, Huffpo, NYTs, …..
And his wife said he’s from Kenya
Being that there is no raised seal of the State of Hawaii on his “birth certificate” maybe………..
But I digress…………… or do I?
Ohhhh, and look what happened on Sesame Street!
Kenya said: “Welcome home Senator Obama”.
from 1:10 to 1:17
Kenyan Ambassador Admits Obama Was Born In Kenya
It’s just a joke, right?
Something is seriously wrong with Jim….
…he believes everything he sees on the internet
It’s funny Jim….
..if they hadn’t cut Biden’s tongue out, we’d be laughing at him too
Jim, I disagree. Much hay is made when conservatives misspeak or make gaffes. So much so, it allows the left to characterize conservatives as intellectually inferior. From Ford’s bumbling, to Quayle’s spelling, to Bush’s verbiage to Palin’s inability to answer inane questions, the left go to town. No one steps up to say they misspoke or meant to say this to understand that, they just vilify. Its past time to respond in kind. They no know boundaries nor possess an ounce of civility.
ever notice that liberals just “miss speak”………….
and conservatives are dumb as a stump trained mule
Yeh, I notice it a lot. The fact is, conservatives don’t hold a candle to the libs when it comes to gaffes. It’s just that they play conservatives up so much. And silently letting the stuff pass doesn’t do the trick. It is what allows the libtards to paint us as redneck anti-science numskulls. So, I’m all for fighting fire with fire.
The 57 United States of America.
The dishonesty of Obama-haters is pretty much without bound. Granted, some liberals did the same with W, but that doesn’t excuse it. I really wish this site would stick to climate skepticism rather than descending into crass political partisanship; it doesn’t exactly help the case that skepticism is about the science…
Dishonest? .. dishonest? .. really? .. It would be nice if the libterds would just take a little glance once in a while at this POS that claims to be POTUS and see just who has been dishonest. You know, you can tell when the Obewon is lying, his lips are moving. I have yet to hear an honest word come from his mouth. Obama is nothing more than one big lie, from start to finish. He has made the old peanut farmer look pretty good at this point. What a fricken joke. I just find it hard to believe (or perhaps hard to swallow) that there are so many stupid people in this country that bought in to his bullshit. Unbelievable…. … but, I am doubting that it is going to happen a second time. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
Squidly – let’s be honest. Obama did say he wanted higher gas prices – and we got em (in the end, with no KY). So not EVERYTHING he says is a lie. Just 99.99% of it.
Phil, you have a very good point, you just have to watch out for what he does say.
Might I also remind you “under my system of cap and trade, energy prices will necessarily skyrocket …. all in the name of CO2 and AGW ……. there’s a little bit of climate for ya pal….
I will have to agree with you however, Steven should keep this to climate, at least it doesn’t get my blood boiling quite as much. However, that being said, if you want to debate Obama, his Czar’s and administration, I would be more than happy to oblige, be forewarned, I come armed with ample ammunition (figure of speech just so you know and don’t go off claiming I am inciting some sort of radical violent takeover of the world). Friendly advice; stick to the science yourself.
But I don’t like shrimp. How do I get mine?
How about Tacos?
Ok, I was poking fun with the birth certificate comments, but Doh!
An international expert on scanners and document-imaging software filed a 22-page criminal complaint with the FBI, charging that the long-form birth certificate released by the White House is criminally fraudulent.,,,,,
The claims seem valid?

He IS a liar. It does not matter if he stubbed his toe, added an e to potato, or just wanted to slip one by. It is a lie. The real issue is why anyone would want to try to define what the meaning of a lie is (or is is). newspeak on parade folks! Lie like a rug, do not even correct yourself – let the bots go out and spin it for you.
If you have a D after your name, the bots line up in defense. Look at Slick Willy.

Wrong. A legitimate honest website would say he incorrectly claimed his father served. An honest website would not say he meant his grandfather since they are not psychic. just the obamabots apparently.
face it – he embellished, got caught and now the spin begins. All because he cannot admit he is wrong.
His grandfather DID serve in WWII. I call it a slip of the tongue.
He, we know. He liberated Auschwitz. /sarc
Why not forgive the mistake by allowing the benefit of doubt that he meant grandfather?
It is obvious he could not have meant father. And his grandfather was more of a father figure than his real father. We should allow similar mis-speaking by Quayle, Bush, Palin, and others. Shouldn’t we?
