According to Maria Gavrilovic, CBS News:

Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz. He said the family legend is that, upon returning from war, his uncle spent six months in an attic. “Now obviously, something had really affected him deeply, but at that time there just weren’t the kinds of facilities to help somebody work through that kind of pain,” Obama said. “That’s why this idea of making sure that every single veteran, when they are discharged, are screened for post-traumatic stress disorder and given the mental health services that they need – that’s why it’s so important.

It does not say much for a cBS reporterette to miss the facts that Auschwitz is in Poland and was liberated by the Soviet Army.  It says even less for BO that he would spout such obvious bull while campaigning for president.   

Hugh Hewitt, Townhall:

But with his nomination assured and the most important job in the world on the line, the criticism-free zone in which Obama has long prospered simply cannot be sustained, and even MSM’s many accommodations cannot camouflage the gaffe parade that is Team Obama from top to bottom.  The litany of stock responses from the left’s library conveys that the senator really hasn’t spent much time thinking through the issues that face the country, and his unpreparedness is both breath-taking and discomforting, even to his supporters.  “Rolling the dice” with an untried rookie might be something a desperate NFL franchise might try with a quarterback, but the world cannot afford to have its only superpower turned over to a completely unqualified and wholly inexperienced lightweight.

More, Sister Toldjah.

I believe than nobody can be as stupid as BO seems to be on the campaign trail.   No rather than being stupid, BO is trying to bullshit his way to the presidency.   As Gavrilovic demonstrates, the media is willing to accept BO’s bovine excrement without critical comment.  Will you?


BO’s lies gets worse.  Jim Geraghty, National Review,  notes that BO’s mother was an only child.  He didn’t have an uncle.  Hat tip Allahpundit, Hot Air.

Good news for CBS, bad news for the media, the Washington Post also employs reporters whe are ignorant of history   Then maybe ignorance explains why the MSM is so excited about BO?
