Oopps He Goofed Again

That this guy is cruising to becoming the Democrats' Presidential nominee is scaring more every day. He fails basic American civics by saying there are 57 states. Or saying the US military needs Arabic translators in Afghanistan, when Farsi and Dari are the predominant languages of that country. How can he top such whoppers you ask? By trying to polish up his image by association it seems.

...Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz...
As Ace of Spades points out: Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Red Army during its Great Patriotic War to subjugate the Germans. Now we have the Obama camp backpeddling and saying Sen. Obama merely mis-spoke. That his uncle, Charlie Payne, was there when the Buchenwald subcamp of Orhdruf was liberated on 4 April 1945. To further muddle things, both 4th Armored Division and the 89th Infantry Divsion can claim to have liberated the forced work camp of Ohrdurf.

Oh wait a minute, talk about mis-spoke. If we are to believe this web-site the World War II Kansas Veterans Index, Charles W. Payne[there are two so take your pick] - Obama's great uncle we are talking about - both enlisted in the US Navy.

Sen. Obama still has some explaining to do.

Oopps, caught myself in my own goof which is now on LGF for the whole world to see. Actually some of the 11 Charles Payne's did join the Army or Coast Guard. Mea culpa on that, fact check and then check again! As to how I know the middle initial is a W, please look at this site: About.com:Ancestry.

But befor inserting their new brains you must first pull their heads out of their asses.

A simple gaffe or two.... or three...or four is one thing.

But it's a PATTERN of gaffes and factual errors and inconsistencies that has emerged that is very troubling.

I'll post later on Obama's statements regarding Venezuela for an example.

Whether you like President Bush or not, you can't say that he does not present and project a clear, focused foreign policy objective.

Obama seems to change his mind from one day to the next.

According to this Obama family tree, his grandmother had no brothers. Her father Rolla Charles Payne, b. 1892, would have been 50 in 1942. The only Charles T. Payne is Obama's great-grandfather, born in 1862.

So you telling me Anonymous that Obama's family tree is contradictory also? Is there anything truthful about Obama?

I agree Mike, it is a pattern of blarney. Unfortunately he lacks the glib tongue kissing the Blarney Stone is supposed to imbue. I think I may start calling him Barack von Munchausen.

Dear God, you're not really that stupid , are you? That family tree shows no siblings for any preceding generation. He's evidently descended from a vast network of only children, on both sides.

You might want to fact check yet again. From the very site you link to

Rolla Charles PAYNE and Leona MCCURRY married in Kansas about 1922 and had the following children:

1. i. Madelyn PAYNE
ii. Charles Thomas PAYNE born in 1925.
iii. Arlene PAYNE born about 1926.

Charles Thomas Payne is Obama's great-uncle and helped to liberate Buchenwald. Where you get the "W"from, I have no idea.

According to the database, Charles T Payne enlisted in the Navy on 13 Dec 1941. How did a Navy man march with Army units?

Well anonymous thanks for the insults. Unlike such outlets as MSNBC or Fox or CNN, I only have myself and readers as fact checkers. It seems I ran across a post or two that said W was the middle initial and it stuck, even when looking at the Ancestry web-site. That is my goof and I own up to it.

Thank you DiveMedic for rendering such sterling fact checking and showing that Charles T Payne joined the US Navy and not the Army.

Want another go anonymous?
