Seeing as how they don’t teach history in schools anymore, a fair number of people might believe this fairytale.

I caught that too. Wrong camp. My father served with the 250th Artillery which was assigned to Patton for the latter part of the war.

His uncle would be his mother’s brother, and it seems that Barack has forgotten something important about Stanley Ann.

I thought that he was talking about his Kenyan relatives again, and all of their military victories over the forces of democracy.

Pardon moi... but Obamassiah doesn't appear to have emulated his grandfather who was a hero...

Instead, he emulates his Muslim, commie side of the family.

And, a few months ago he dissed his white grandma.

Conclusion: Obamessiah needs to get in touch with his, "I am an American" first side... until then stfu...

He’s a white liberal. Here, he can’t resist the desire to cast military service with mental illness.

BTW, I would like to see in “quotes” the Auschwitz comment, otherwise it might be reporter error.

On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Auschwitz and liberated more than 7,000 remaining prisoners...

It all depends on the audience.

This audience must be Jewish. He needs the Jews too.

Honestly, when his lips move, he lies.

YOu mean, because Stanley Ann, born in 1942, was her parents’ only child and named Stanley because her father wanted a boy and didn’t get one? You mean because Stanley Ann’s parents were married in 1940 and would have a hard time producing a kid old enough to liberate Auschwitz? Maybe it was one of his black uncles marching with the Soviets. I’m sure someone will come out and say it was a great-uncle, right?

Seeing as how Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviets, either:
(1) Obama is lying
(2) Obama’s heritage includes communists
(3) Obama is significantly undereducated for the position that he is applying for
(4) All of the above

Even Wiki tells a tale. Of course, when the nObamans notice it they will probably edit the historical records.

Shades of 1984.

When the Soviet army liberated Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, they found about 7,600 survivors abandoned there. More than 58,000 prisoners had already been evacuated by the Nazis and sent on a final death march to Germany.

The man whose service record will decode this fable is probably his great uncle, Charles Payne. Payne was his Grandmother Dunham’s brother, and is the only male in the Obama family tree, other than his grandfather, who could have been serving in 1945.

Hey, Obama you jerk -— you shouldn’t claim credit for the good done by the WHITE side of your family which you’ve thrown under the bus.....

Tell us what the black side of your CHOSEN side of the family has accomplished......other than impregnating silly white women and abandoning them...

Waiting.......waiting......waiting....
Okay....NOTHING there.

Now, tell us what YOU have accomplished for the country.
Waiting...... waiting...... waiting.
Nothing there either, huh!

It might have been Buchenwald or Dachau; Patton’s Army liberated that area of Germany.

As the saying goes, Obama is close enough for government work.

This story just fills me with questions. Questions like:

Did his uncle have to dodge sniper fire?

Does he still have the hat he was given by the CIA agents who met him and told him to liberate the camp?

When will Obambi drive a tank for a photo shoot?

Thanks. That's a great bit of data.

Will Barack Obama's American grandmother emerge from radio silence to declare that her own brother was a Section 8?

It is disgusting, his black relatives didn’t live in the US until he himself lived here, and he almost NEVER mentions his white relatives at all unless he is insulting them in a typical manner

now, all of a sudden he is proud of his white relatives...

Obama is a racist through and through, only he is a racist against 50% of himself...

Does anyone know the name of Obama’s white grandfather?

That would be the father of his mother, right? (his maternal grandfather)

Would he be the right age to have been in WWII? I thought I saw a photo of Obama’s maternal grandparents, and I think the man was too young. My father was in WWII and he was born in 1916.
