Barack Obama must be the most gaffe-prone politician in memory. Today, he delivered a Memorial Day speech in New Mexico. After greeting the local Democratic Party dignitaries, he began:
On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.
Memorial Day honors those who have died in our nation’s military service. Is it possible that Obama does not know this? Sometimes the things that come out of his mouth defy understanding.
Well, clearly, either Obama is saying Dead soldiers support him (Obama is a South Chicago politician after all, and may well need to explain dead voters having voted for him) or he’s being haunted by soldiers he’s dishonored.
