Obama Has to Fib Even at a Funeral
American Thinker ^ | 12/23/2012 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 12/23/2012 7:29:25 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Yes, everything is about Barack Obama. From the beginning, he has built his career on his own personal story, and the funeral service of former Hawaiian Senator Daniel Inouye at the National Cathedral on Friday apparently struck him as an opportune time to remind the world what that story was. In his 1,600-word oration, Obama even managed to work in the fact, as though someone in the universe might not have heard, that he had "a white mom [and] a black father" "and was raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."

The problem, however, is not just that Obama used the word "my" 21 times, "me" 12 times, and "I" 30 times in the course of telling his story, but rather that even at a funeral, he could not keep the story straight.

Obama's oration dealt to a large degree with how he came to understand what a U.S. senator is. "Now, even though my mother and grandparents took great pride that they had voted for him," said Barack Obama of Inouye, "I confess that I wasn't paying much attention to the United States Senate at the age of four or five or six. It wasn't until I was 11 years old that I recall even learning what a U.S. senator was, or it registering, at least. It was during my summer vacation with my family -- my first trip to what those of us in Hawaii call the Mainland."

The story of the trip set up the punch line. He told Inouye's mourners that "my mother that summer would turn on the TV every night during this vacation and watch the Watergate hearings," and he was forced to watch, too. Of course, the senator who "fascinated" him most was "this man of Japanese descent with one arm,

There aren’t enough words in all the world, in any language to describe how much I hate this narcissistic prick.

Why let facts get in the way of a good, self-aggrandizing, sob story?

According to those now in power, truth is a mere inconvenience, and needs to be swept aside at every opportunity...

Lying about their accomplishment and experiences is very common with politicians. Both parties.
Bill Clinton remembered church burnings in Arkansas in his youth.
Hillary Clinton was named for Sir Edmond Hillary.
George w. Bush on many occasions remembered his conservatism.
Broncho Bammer remembers ........Oh hell too many to recall here.

What did Daniel think about me?

Obama must always be the bride at every wedding, and the corpse at every funeral.

I’m sure Obama is looking forward to the next funeral.Obama is unworthy to speak at that man’s funeral,despite the guy’s politics-he was one brave man.

DumBO has never had an original thought, except, maybe, “Get me some choom, Reggie.” But, his puppet master and speech writers know that he will not read what is written if it does not reflect on him.

That is true, but I consider lies about one’s bio (or an opponent’s) especially disturbing. Don’t know why, but I do.

I just really need to find out the requirement for getting somebody’s picture next to a definition in Webster’s Dictionary. My God, there will never be a narcissist that can possibly better define the term. I guess that will have to be my project and a New Year’s Resolution for 2013.

Well, one can’t deny that, Obama is the greatest president of his time.

Problem is, he is also the worst president of his time.

The time being, of course, 2009-12 and 2013-2016.

Webster's Dictionary wont do it.

So, at the risk of giving away a multi-million dollar idea, may I suggest a new website.

The website will be dedicated to words and phrases and their original definitions, along with a picture of a person befitting the definition of the word or phrase.

We could have the negative connotation words/phrases on one section of the website, and a positive connotation of the words/phrases on another section.

Then, we'll end up with something like:

worst president ever: (definition), followed by an image of Obama narcissist: (definition), followed by image of Obama self-aggrandizement: (definition), followed by image Obama empty suit: (definition), followed by image of Obama

best president ever: (definition), followed by image of Lincoln and/or Washington

legend in his own mind: (definition), followed by image of Obama and/or Clinton useful idiot: (definition), followed by a picture of a crowd of Obama's followers at one of his inaugural addresses

The site could be updated on a yearly basis, or as the times require, or as a new terminology or coined phrases are introduced

Obama alone could fill a huge number of pages in the negative connotation section.

Worst part is millions of Americans love this prick. There is no way to express how dumbed down Americans are. America is lost.

Even worse, the “non-spouse-at-the-time black man” most likely wasn’t Barack Obama I, but Frank Marshall Davis who was also an admitted Communist organizer.

I think we can all agree he can’t talk about himself unless it was pre-scripted by someone else for him to read. That boy is a total fabrication in every liberal’s mind.

He really is just a self centered Bullshet Artist of the Ninth Degree! If it wasn’t for His Highly Skilled Mafia Handlers, he would still be running around to the Chicago Bathhouses where he got his well earned Nickname of “BATHHOUSE BARRY!” Barry is “SO GAY!” that he makes “Bawny Fwank look like he is a Homophobe!”
America is soooooo Screwed for another Four Years!

Personally, I despise his attitudes, but I lean more towards pity and contempt for him. Because eventually he’s going to have to face up to his actions, and it’s not gonna be pretty.
