Skip to comments.Obama's grandfather tortured by the British?: A fantasy
Posted on 06/20/2012 12:02:26 PM PDT by the scotsman
A new biography of Barack Obama has established that his grandfather was not, as is related in the Presidents own memoir, detained by the British in Kenya and found that claims that he was tortured were a fabrication.
'Barack Obama: The Story' by David Maraniss catalogues dozens of instances in which Obama deviated significantly from the truth in his book 'Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance'. The 641-page book punctures the carefully-crafted narrative of Obamas life.'

Are we sure this one is a lie? Or could Obama say he was told this by someone?
One thing is for sure (re Fast and Furious): Obama lied; people died.
President Walter Mitty.
Reminds me of his imaginary uncle, who liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Good one. Say, did you mean Walter Hussein Mitty?
That was a composite grandfather.
Well, Obama named his book “Dreams...” The clue to the fantasies contained was right there, in the title. We shoulda known! LOL
You can’t blame Barack for the content of a book he didn’t write. It reminds me of a book report I did on Babe Ruth in the 3rd grade. Good thing my father read it before I turned it in. I neglected to read the book so I gave the Babe a life of my own. I was up late that night.
Oh, wow. Obama could be the catalyst that brings more black people into the conservative fold, the catalyst that gets the deficit reduced like never before (people finally understand under Obama that deficits don't work), unwittingly gets healthcare privatized AND reverses the anti-colonial sentiment so prevalent in the western world.
I do know I'm tired of being tortured by Obama though.............
