DNC Lies About Obama and His Mother
Rush Limbaugh Quick Hits Page ^ | Sep 7, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 09/07/2012 4:24:33 PM PDT by BerryDingle

RUSH: Obama, in his speech last night, said two things which are not true. Well, one thing was said about him which isn't true, and he said something himself that isn't true. His wife, Michelle (My Belle) Obama, during her speech, I think even Clinton during his speech, I think Biden during his speech, said that Obama was constantly by his mother's bedside when she was ill, passing away. But he wasn't. He was on his book tour. I have here nothing less than the Washington Post, August, 2008. It's an actual random act of journalism. The Washington Post went out, did a more recent fact-check debunking some of Obama's claims about his mother's death. This is an article they posted back in 2008. This is when they were fawning over him, don't forget, and they let some facts slip out in this piece. It turns out here that the facts in this piece are even more damning than the later fact-check on this.

Headline: "Though Obama Had to Leave to Find Himself, It Is Hawaii That Made His Rise Possible." Now, this is the fawning period, this is August of 2008. "But now [Obama] was drawn back to Hawaii to say goodbye to his mother. Too late, as it turned out. She died on Nov. 7, 1995, before he could get there. Ann [Dunham] had returned to Honolulu early that year, a few months before 'Dreams From My Father' was published. She was weakened from a cancer that had been misdiagnosed in Indonesia as indigestion. American doctors first thought it was ovarian cancer, but an examination at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York determined that it was uterine cancer that had spread to her ovaries. Stan had died a few years earlier, and Madelyn still lived in the apartment on Beretania. Ann took an apartment on the same floor, and underwent chemotherapy treatments while keeping up with her work as best she could. 'She took it in stride,' said Alice Dewey, chair of the University of Hawaii anthropology department, where Ann did her doctoral dissertation. 'She never complained. Never said, "Why me?"'

And the article notes, Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro developed cancer in 1994 while in Indonesia. Anyway, you heard throughout the convention that Obama was right there at his mother's bedside when she was sick and when she passed away, devoted son. He wasn't even in the state. He was on the book tour for Dreams From My Father. He didn't get home in time. She passed away before he got there. (Voice of Mr. New Castrati) "Mr. Limbaugh, why are you bringing up this ancient family history and trying to destroy the good vibes and feeling for this family?" That's the voice of Mr. New Castrati.

No, I'm not trying to do anything here other than square the facts. It's a character reference we had on the president all this week in the convention, so devoted, he was there at his mother's bedside when she passed away. He wasn't. I'm not saying anything else. I'm just saying that they said he was there, and he wasn't. He was on his book tour, and when it was told that, "Hey, Barry, time's approaching, you better go," he didn't get home in time. Washington Post, August 22nd, 2008.

The second story, why, lo and behold, it's also from the Washington Post, and the headline says it all: "Obama’s Mother Had Health Insurance, According to Biography."

It's an article from the Washington Post, 2011, July 14th. After Obama had been using his mother's death to push for Obamacare for more than two years. The upshot of the story is that Obama's mother did have health insurance when she died. And nobody's disputing the claims in the biography. Now, this biography of Obama's mother also debunks Obama's claim that he was by his mother's side through her ordeal. He was not. This is the second source for this. He hadn't visited his mother for months before her death. He was too busy on his book tour. He was running for office.

You know what else he was doing when his mother died? He was organizing the Million Man March with Louis Farrakhan. Now, I'm just saying we had character references, folks, all week long, from three people: Moochelle, in the great swimsuit dress she wore, gotta hand it to her, great props there, Joe Bite Me, and Bill Clinton. And one of the references was, devoted son. Mother passed away, Barack was by her side. He wasn't. He wasn't there for months prior to her death. He was on his book tour and organizing the Million Man March for Calypso Louie. He didn't get home in time.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: It's right here. It's in the Washington Post. Obama's mother had full coverage for her cancer. Full coverage. Nobody denied her. Her insurance company didn't deny her. She was not denied treatment. Her battle was to get disability insurance payments for her out-of-pocket expenses. This according to A Singular Woman, a biography of Dunham by Janny Scott who covered the campaign as a reporter for the New York Times. She had health insurance, and it was not denied. But Obama again last night alluded to the fact that she didn't, that life had treated her unfairly. It isn't true.

As a Marxist, his mother would have wanted him to lie about her if it advanced the cause of Marxism.

there is not one thing about the “story” of this guy’s life we can point to as truthful. Everything is either embellished or an outright fabrication.

I bet he’s gay or his grades are bad with lots of incompletes and he’s not an actual natural born citizen.. not because any of those are true but based on his history of lying, we can’t take anything for granted.

But, as a porn model, she would have wanted him to stay on the set and "get the shot". (And there is indisputable proof that she was a porn model.)

You know, I can’t blame the guy for not rushing home to be with his mother who dumped him off as a child. It was foolish to lie about it, but he must have figured he could pass it off as a composite.

As Glenn Beck referred to once, Zippy can’t even refer to his personal life without reading it off of a teleprompter. He is himself, a complete fabrication.

She probably died from a disease she contracted in Kenya while giving birth to Barry.

You got that right - In fact, where is the proof that Stanley Ann is really dead? Bill Ayres and his bride could help her go “underground” —that would be necessary if her boy was going to run for POTUS. Sure don’t want anything to ruin their dreams and our nightmare.

From the article also: "You know what else he was doing when his mother died? He was organizing the Million Man March with Louis Farrakhan."

The media always answers the "unasked" question about why some people don't think Zippy is a Christian.

For sure Baraq is bisexual. There have been numerous corroborated stories about him with at least 4 different men, including Kal Penn of the Harold and Kumar movies. But he’s probably the biological dad of his girls so we can’t truly call him gay.
