- Frank Marshall Davis Obama Scandal – National Review: “The press refuses to delve into Barack Obama’s radicalism, his Leftist revolutionary collaboration with self-identified communists [like] Frank Marshall Davis. Obama identifies Davis only as ‘Frank’ in his book. The National Enquirer says Davis “confessed to having sex with children, sadomasochism, bondage and practicing a wide array of deviant sexual activities…In Dreams from My Father, Obama wrote: “He would read us poetry whenever we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an emptied jelly jar. As the night wore on, the two of them would solicit my help in composing dirty limericks.” Obama described being counseled by ‘Frank’ often and recalled drinking whiskey (while underage) with him. Since Frank Davis has been identified as the author of Sex Rebel: Black, Obama has been extremely secretive about the true nature of his experience with the self-admitted deviant.” The Honolulu Advertiser reports: “I have a lot of expectations, a lot of hope, & I expect to see a lot of change,” said the daughter of Davis, a black journalist & poet & friend of Obama’s maternal grandfather. “I feel truly proud to be an American,” said Davis’ granddaughter. “I never have before.” Sounds like Michelle Obama! UPDATE 10/5/10: From National Review Online: “He turns up in the president’s memoir, Dreams from My Father, shrewdly identified only as “Frank”: “I was intrigued by old Frank, with his books and whiskey breath and the hint of hard-earned knowledge behind the hooded eyes.” Recently, a U.S. Communist-party official confirmed the relationship, bragging in a speech of the Communist Davis’s formative influence over Obama. And yet when the allegations surfaced during the 2008 campaign, they went virtually unreported in the mainstream media… Davis’s targets were mainly Democrats, and especially a Democratic icon, Harry Truman… In a…1950, column,.. Davis painted a stark picture of an America on the verge of another Great Depression, the fault of a “virtual dictatorship of Big Business.” He concluded that in the face of “still rising unemployment and a mounting depression, the time draws nearer when we will have to decide to oust the monopolies and restore a competing system of free enterprise, or let the government own and operate our major industries.”
- Obama Drug Use-Scandal – In his own book, Obama writes that he used both marijuana and cocaine (”maybe a little blow”.) “Oddly enough, he writes that he didn’t try heroin because — wait for it — he didn’t like the pusher who was selling it. (Weren’t there any other reasons?)” He also admitted to underage drinking with Frank Marshall Davis.
- Obama’s Scandalous Strategy for Picking Friends! – Obama wrote, “I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and the Structural Feminists.” Yeah, he chooses his friends carefully. NOT! A college acquaintance of Obama, who then went by the name “Barry,” gave a radio interview and discussed Obama’s Marxist beliefs in 1980. Here’s the tape of the interview with John C. Drew…
- Future VP Joe Biden had his own Plagiarism Scandal 1987-1988 – From Newsbusters: “Joe Biden’s 1987 stump-speech plagiarism of Neil Kinnock likely occurred more than once. Additionally, according to contemporaneous New York Times reports, including an editorial, Biden’s orations featured unattributed speech-lifting from John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Hubert Humphrey.
- Barack Obama tapes his own Racist Rant against Whites!
- Obama’s Other Racist Rant Interview! 1995 – Naked Emperor News and EyeOnBooks report on another Racist Interview Obama Gave! Obama said some “White Executives living out in the suburbs” don’t “want to pay taxes to inner-city children!” This is the interview where Obama also made the bizarre spiritual claim that his own eternal fate remains tied up with the fate of the African American community… “That my individual salvation is not gonna come about without a collective salvation for the country.” – So, he has to save the Black people or he will go to hell?! What kind of comment is that?! Obama continued, “Uhm, unfortunately I think that recognition requires we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about a new day and a new age.” His own salvation with God is “tied up” to “SAVING” the African American community?! These are bizarre statements from a confused man. He also made the strange claim that Los Angeles in like Bosnia! In the video below, you will hear him very clumsily say (notice all the “Uh’s), “Because, I think, of the problems that African Americans face in this country, we tend to have a sanitized view in the African American community about what is going on in Africa and the truth of the matter is, is that many of the problems that Africa faces, whether it’s poverty or uh political supression, uh or ethnic conflict uh is just as prominent there and can’t all be blamed on uh the effects of colonialism, uh what it can be blamed on is some of the common factors that effect Bosnia or uh Los Angeles! Or uh all kinds of places on this earth, and that is uh the tendency for one group to try to uh suppress another group uh in, in the interest of power or greed or uh, resources or what have you.” Also notice how even the media critical of Obama seem to “clean up” all of his quotes. He get’s “going to” when he says “gonna” and all of the “Uh’s” are left out.
- Obama Seeks Marxist Endorsement for First Political Office!!
- Obama Lies in ‘Dreams from my Father’ Book Snopes.com says in the book, Obama wrote that his mother dropped him off at a library where he was thumbing through issues of Life magazine. “I came across a photograph of an older man in dark glasses and a raincoat walking down an empty road…the man’s crinkly hair, his heavy lips, and broad fleshy nose all had the same uneven, ghostly hue…the man had received a chemical treatment…to lighten his complexion.” – The only problem according to Snopes is that “no one has yet found any matching article in the pages of Life magazine.” – Maybe it was just a bad dream about Michael Jackson?
- Obama Saul Alinsky Training Scandal – The American Thinker: Obama’s early mentor in the “Alinsky Rules for Radicals” [socialist] method was Mike Kruglik, who said of Obama: “He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive & confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.” The American Thinker reported: “The agitator’s job, according to Alinsky, is first to bring folks to the “realization” that they are indeed miserable, that their misery is the fault of unresponsive governments or greedy corporations, then help them to bond together to demand what they deserve, & to make such an almighty stink that the dastardly governments & corporations will see imminent “self-interest” in granting whatever it is that will cause the harassment to cease.” Obama called this being a “Community Organizer!“
- Jeremiah Wright Obama Scandal – Obama pledges never to disown his pastor despite Rev. Wright’s anti-American and racist rants. Wright says “G.D. America!” during a service. Days after the news, Obama tosses Wright under the bus along with his white grandmother in a clumsily handled press conference on racial relations.
Since becoming President, Obama has had his former pastor to the White House for a visit!
- Father Michael Pfleger Obama Scandal – Another “man of God” Obama calls a spiritual advisor, Pfleger spoke at Obama’s church mocking Hillary Clinton saying she expected to win only because she was white. Obama finally decides he should leave the Church. Ya think?!
- Emil Jones Obama Scandal – Obama’s political Godfather, the man who taught Obama all he knows, Jones “is known for steering state money to favored institutions, including some that employ his relatives. Several of his relatives have gotten state jobs, & his wife’s government salary jumped 60% after he became Senate president. He has played an important role in blocking ethics legislation in Illinois.” (Source AP)
- Obama 2001 Radio Interview Scandal # 1 – Says Supreme Court Should Have Redistributed Wealth from Whites to Blacks! 2001 On WBEZ FM in Chicago, then state senator Barack Obama suggested the supreme court failed the civil rights movement by not “redistributing wealth” after black people were given rights. He thinks the U.S. Supreme Court should have taken money from whites and given it to blacks as part of the civil rights movement!
- Obama 2001 Radio Interview Scandal # 2 – Says Supreme Court Was Not Radical Enough! 2001 On WBEZ FM in Chicago Obama the Warren Supreme Court was “not that radical” because it “didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers of the Constitution.” He wanted them to be more radical, break free from the constraints of the Constitution, break free from the constraints of the founding fathers and redistribute wealth!
- Obama 2001 Radio Interview Scandal # 3 – Says U.S. Constitution is Flawed! When sworn in as President, Obama promised to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. But back in 2001 On WBEZ FM in Chicago, he said the “Constitution fails because it doesn’t say what government must do on your behalf.” He said Civil Rights leaders failed to bring about “redistributive change” because they lost track of community organizing which he said is how you bring about that change. He said “We still suffer from that (failure).”
- Obama 2001 Radio Interview Scandal # 4 – Says Supreme Court Should Bring About Economic Change 2001 On WBEZ FM in Chicago, Obama said “Any three of us sitting here could come up with a rationale for bringing about economic change through the courts.” Years before he nominated racist Sonia Sotomayor, who believes she can make better decisions than a white male because she is a “wise Latina woman,” he suggested the nation’s highest court be used to redistribute wealth. This is 17 years before “Joe the Plumber” and he was already talking about redistributing wealth from whites to blacks.
Listen to the interview yourself to hear the four Radio interview Scandals:
- Obama Lies About a Presidential Run November, 2004 – Obama Lies to the Chicago Sun-Times: “Ridiculing it as ‘a silly question,’ Democrat Barack Obama pledged Wednesday he would resist any overtures to run for president or vice president before the end of his six-year term as a U.S. senator. ‘I was elected yesterday,’ Obama said. ‘I have never set foot in the U.S. Senate. I’ve never worked in Washington. And the notion that somehow I’m immediately going to start running for higher office just doesn’t make sense. “So look, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible senator on behalf of the people of Illinois.'”
- Obama Raila Odinga Scandal – Some claim then-US Senator Barack Obama campaigned for infamous Kenyan Dictator Raila Odinga. They certainly appeared together:Snopes says the two men are NOT cousins (as some sites claim). Obama did NOT donate money to Odinga and Obama says he is NOT presently a muslim. Those are rumors related to this appearance.
- Biden’s 7-11 Gaffe! 6/17/2006 Vice President Joe Biden tells a journalist, ” “You CANNOT go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent … I’m not joking.” Watch the racially insensitive remark here for yourself…
- Michelle Obama Pay Increase Scandal – 09/2006 Michelle Obama gets a big promotion & huge pay increase right after her husband is elected US Senator. The prez of the U. of Chicago Hospitals promotes her to VP of “external affairs” & nearly triples her salary to $316,962! He tells the bankrupt Chicago Trib the promotion & raise had nothing to do with Barack joining the Senate. UPDATE 8/5/9: Sean Hannity notes that Michelle’s huge pay hike came only after Senator Obama secured a $1-million grant for his wife’s employer!
- Tony Rezko Obama Scandal – Obama buys a $1.65-million house in a nice neighborhood with help from indicted political fundraiser Tony Rezko and other pals. Rezko buys the lot next door & sells it to Obama for far less than it’s value. Obama admits not handling that one properly. UPDATE 2/9 the Federal Election Commission notified Judicial Watch that Obama had in fact received a deeply discounted home loan (a savings of $108,000) from the other pals at Northern Trust. Not a deal you could get!
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden Racist Comments about Barack Obama!– 1/31/07 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “ the day Biden announced his presidential bid — the Delaware Senator was roundly criticized for calling Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” – He’s the first half-black man to be articulate? To be bright? To be clean? Good lord, man! Who let you out of the cave?
- LA Times Says Obama Stretched “Truth” in His Book 2/19/2007 – “Monday’s Los Angeles Times exploded one of the major myths in Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father, that Obama had been the spearhead behind efforts to remove asbestos contamination at Altgeld Gardens on the South Side of Chicago… In reality, Obama stole the credit from real community activists and “organizers” and appropriated their efforts as his own. Obama covered the tracks to his burglary of the truth by using fictional characters to replace the “real” people in the Altgeld episode. It is no surprise that Sweet reports today Obama was “worried about a pending potentially negative…story.”
- Obama’s Family Owned Slaves! 3/4/7 Barack Obama tells a crowd in Selma, Alabama that his father, “came over to this country. He met this woman whose great great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves; but she had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that the world as it has been it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child.” The child was Barack Hussein Obama, whose great-great-great-great-great grandfather owned slaves! That’s right, President Obama comes from white family that owned slaves!
- Obama Gets History wrong saying the March in Selma resulted in his birth
- Obama’s Jack Kennedy Lie– 3/4/7 – The Audacity of Hypocrisy reports, “Obama went on to tell his audience that the Kennedys — Jack and Bobby — decided to do an airlift. They would bring some young Africans over so that they could be educated and learn all about America. His grandfather heard that call and sent his son, Barack Obama, Sr., to America. The problem with that scenario is that, having been born in August 1961, the future senator was not conceived (in America) until sometime in November 1960. So, if his African grandfather heard words that “sent a shout across oceans,” inspiring him to send his goat-herder son to America, it was not Democrat Jack Kennedy he heard, or his brother Bobby, it was Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower.”
- Obama Says Muslim Call to Prayer is Most Beautiful Sound!
- Obama Plays Dumb – 3/19/2007 Time Magazine says Obama played dumb: “We don’t have the technical capacity to create something like that. It’s pretty extraordinary.” — Obama, disavowing the possibility that a YouTube video mocking Hillary Clinton was created by his campaign staff. Two days later, the “Apple 1984 ad” spoof was revealed to be the creation of a political operative employed by a firm overseeing technology for Obama’s campaign. The Obama campaign later fired the creator (probably after thanking him).
- Obama’s Death Toll Gaffe– 5/8/7 – The Audacity of Hypocrisy reports, “(Obama) drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying 10,000 had died. “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” …The death toll was 12.”
- Obama Controversy: Supports Law-Breakers – 07/27/2007 Obama marched with illegal aliens waving Mexican flags in Chicago. He backs an easy way to convert 12-million illegals instantly to citizens. Immigrants who want to be here and want to be citizens should wave US Flags. Watch Obama promises to La Raza from August 7, 2007:
- Obama Flip Flops on Nuclear Weapons within Seconds! 8/2/7 Talk Left and The Atlantic report Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday he would not use nuclear weapons ”in any circumstance.” ”I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance,” Obama said, with a pause, ”involving civilians.” Then he quickly added, ”Let me scratch that. There’s been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That’s not on the table.”
- President Obama Flip Flops on Cuban Embargo 8/25/07 Despite a 2004 statement, “I think it’s time for us to end the embargo with Cuba.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks At Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL, 1/20/04), Obama now tells the Miami Herald a different story: “As president, I’ll maintain the embargo it’s an important inducement for change because we know that Castro’s death will not guarantee freedom.”
- Obama Campaign Finance Scandal – 10/08/2007 Obama’s top fundraiser sought money & support from disgraced political fundraiser Norman Hsu. Politico reports, “Julianna Smoot, national finance director of Obama’s presidential campaign, originally sought the support of Norman Hsu.” Hsu was a fugitive from the law & ran a Ponzi scheme.
- Obama Sex for Kindergarteners Scandal – In November of 2007, Obama laughs about being criticized for wanting sex education taught to kindergarteners, but says “It is the right thing to do.”
- Obama’s Big Fat Trillion Lie – War on Fat People 12/13/2007 – From FactCheck.org: “Obama: “If we went back to the obesity rates that existed in 1980, that would save the Medicare system a trillion dollars.” Obama got this claim from a “candidate briefing book” put out by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank run by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. CAP cites the CDC and the Commonwealth Fund as sources for the estimate, but representatives from both organizations told us that the claim was unfamiliar to them. We worked up our own back-of-the-envelope estimate, using official figures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially estimates that obesity cost $75 billion in 2003. The CDC also says that “approximately half” of the cost burden for both overweight and obese people is borne by Medicaid and Medicare. Obesity rates doubled between 1980 and 2000, also according to the CDC. So if obesity rates returned to “rates that existed in 1980” they would be cut in half, and that in turn would imply that Medicare and Medicaid together (not just Medicare alone) would save about a quarter of $75 billion, or roughly $18.75 billion per year. – by Brooks Jackson, with Viveca Novak, Justin Bank, Jess Henig, Emi Kolawole, Joe Miller and Lori Robertson .”
- Obama’s First Flip Flop on Nuclear Power 12/30/07 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “In September 2007, Barack Obama Said…”I don’t think that we can take nuclear power off the table. What we have to make sure of is that we have the capacity to store it properly and safely, and that we reduce whatever threats might come from terrorism.”…In December 2007,”I start off with the premise that nuclear energy is not optimal. I am not a nuclear energy proponent.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks At Town Hall Event, Newton, IA, 12/30/07)– ConservativeAmerican.org’s take: Obama willing to say anything to be elected.
- Obama Admits He’s Not a Chief Operating Officer (COO)
- Michelle Obama Slams America! 1/23/8 “It’s easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your own ignorance, That’s AMERICA” – Michelle Obama told a group of students at the University of South Carolina. Watch for yourself by clicking here.

- The Obama Plagiarism Scandal – 2/16/2008 – Obama steals words “just words” from Deval Patrick:
- Michelle Obama: “First Time…I’m Proud of My Country!” – Slams America AGAIN!
- Obama Flip Flop on Union Support! 2/25/8 The Washington Post: “In January, the Obama campaign described union contributions to the campaigns of Clinton and John Edwards as “special interest” money. Obama changed his tune as he began gathering his own union endorsements. He now refers respectfully to unions as the representatives of “working people” and says he is “thrilled” by their support.”
- Obama Flip Flop on Illegal Immigration! 2/25/8 The Washington Post: “In a March 2004 questionnaire, Obama was asked if the government should “crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants.” He replied “Oppose.” In a Jan. 31, 2008, televised debate, he said that “we do have to crack down on those employers that are taking advantage of the situation.”
- Obama Flip Flop on Making Marijuana Legal 2/25/8 The Washington Post: “While running for the U.S. Senate in January 2004, Obama told Illinois college students that he supported eliminating criminal penalties for marijuana use. In the Oct. 30, 2007, presidential debate, he joined other Democratic candidates in opposing the decriminalization of marijuana.
- Obama’s Ohio NAFTA Lie!
- Obama’s Ties To Rezko Larger Than Admitted 3/16/2008 From the Politico: “Obama… acknowledged he had substantially underrepresented the cash raised for his earlier campaigns by indicted businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko. But Obama’s campaign said it could not donate to charity as much as $90,000 in newly acknowledged Rezko-linked contributions because the old campaign accounts were closed and the money spent. Obama’s acknowledgment… came after a year-and-a-half-long trickle of admissions about Rezko’s fundraising role and more than a month after Obama’s aides contended that they had identified and jettisoned all Rezko-linked cash.”
- Another Pastor Problem for Obama: Rev. James Meeks 3/19/2008 Sweetness and Light reports: “Without permission from CBS 2, the Fox News Channel ran Wednesday evening parts of a 2- year-old story… on language used by State Sen. James Meeks, who is now a delegate pledged to Obama. “We don’t have slave masters, we got mayors,” Meeks said then while preaching. “But they are still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able to be educated. You got some preachers that are house n——. You got some elected officials that are house n——. Rather than them try and break this up, they’re gonna fight you to protect that white man.” When confronted in 2006 about his divisive language, Meeks initially defended it. “The word n—– is not, in the African American community, a bad word,” Meeks said. “It’s a term of endearment and I don’t see it as derogatory or offensive. No one will be offended by it, except an individual it applies to,” he added…An Obama spokesperson told CBS 2 Wednesday night: “Sen. Obama has appeared at hundreds of churches and served with scores of colleagues and can hardly be expected to be held responsible for all that they say.” … April 2004 Chicago Sun Times…Another person Obama says he seeks out for spiritual counsel is state Sen. James Meeks, who is also the pastor of Chicago’s Salem Baptist Church. The day after Obama won the primary in March, he stopped by Salem for Wednesday-night Bible study. “I know that he’s a person of prayer,” Meeks says. “The night after the election, he was the hottest thing going from Galesburg to Rockford. He did all the TV shows, and all the morning news, but his last stop at night was for church. He came by to say thank you, and he came by for prayer.”
- Obama’s State Senate Records Missing? 3/30/2008 Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch wonders where Obama’s records are from when he served as a State Senator in Illinois. Fitton writes: “During a campaign stop last fall, Obama said he didn’t have any records of his eight years in the Illinois state legislature. “I don’t have — I don’t maintain — a file of eight years of work in the state Senate because I didn’t have the resources available to maintain those kinds of records.” (Apparently they don’t have boxes in Chicago.) However, when questioned on the records by Meet the Press host Tim Russert on November 11, 2007, Obama said: “Well, let’s be clear. In the state Senate, every single piece of information, every document related to state government was kept by the state of Illinois and has been disclosed and is available and has been gone through with a fine-toothed comb by news outlets in Illinois…every document related to my interactions with government is available right now.” Contrast this “version of the truth” with what the Illinois Office of the Secretary of State recently told Judicial Watch, in response to our open records request: “The ISA does not maintain Senator Obama’s personal records or papers. [Nor] does the ISA maintain records generated by his office. In addition, the ISA has received no requests from Senator Obama to archive any records formerly in his possession.””
- Obama – Barry 4/2/2008 The “Obama What’s The Facts” website says the Indonesian Newspaper Banjarmasin Post sheds light on Obama’s early years. This report suggests that Obama has not accurately reported his early religious education. The paper says , “Barry dulu memang beragama Islam,” meaning “Barry was previously quite religious Islam.” What’s The Facts: “On January 24, the Obama campaign released a statement, saying, “To be clear, Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ in Chicago. On March 14th, in a statement to The Times, the Obama campaign offered this statement to correct their previous statement, that appears to be a bold-faced lie: “Obama has never been a practicing Muslim. The statement added that as a child, Obama had spent time in the neighborhood’s Islamic center.” And, the original statement began, “To be clear …” So, in three months, Barrack’s campaign has gone from describing the U.S. presidential hopeful as never having been a Muslim and never having been raised as a Muslim to now never having been a practicing Muslim.”
- Obama Was Not Truthful About Pastor Wright’s 9/11 Comments 4/2/2008 – The Obama What’s The Facts website says, “After the uproar in March (of 2008) Obama claimed he wasn’t aware of his Pastors remarks on 911 until that very moment. This NYT article proves he lied as he already answered questions about them in April (of) 2007.” From that NY Times article: “On the Sunday after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Mr. Wright said the attacks were a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later he wrote that the attacks had proved that “people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West went on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.” … “A lot of people are going to say to Mr. Obama, are these your views?” Mr. Obama says they are not. “The violence of 9/11 was inexcusable and without justification,” he said in a recent interview. He was not at Trinity the day Mr. Wright delivered his remarks shortly after the attacks, Mr. Obama said, but “it sounds like he was trying to be provocative.”
- Obama “Bitter Clingers” Gaffe – April 6th, 2008 – Obama tells wealthy liberal elites: “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest,…And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Even the H.R. Puff-n-Stuff website (Huffington Post) called that ” a problematic judgment call.”
- Obama’s Iraq War Flip-Flop 4/11/2008 Newsbusters, MyMaineToday and Obama What’s The Facts report: “On July 28th, the day after his speech at the Democratic convention catapulted him into the national spotlight, Barack Obama told a group of reporters in Boston that the United States had an “absolute obligation” to remain in Iraq long enough to make it a success. “The failure of the Iraqi state would be a disaster,” he said at a lunch sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, according to an audiotape of the session. “It would dishonor the 900-plus men and women who have already died. . . . It would be a betrayal of the promise that we made to the Iraqi people, and it would be hugely destabilizing from a national security perspective.” In late winter, 2008, on the campaign trail, Obama says he wants to bring the troops home yesterday.”
- Obama’s Lie About Wearing a Flag Pin 4/16/2008 Obama stated today, “I have never said that I don’t wear flag pins or refuse to wear flag pins.” In the video below, you can see him clearly state, “I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest.”

- Obama Flips on Nailing Phone Companies for Helping Bush “Spy” on Americans! 6/20/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “(10/24/07) Obama Spokesman Bill Burton: “To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”…Barack Obama Now Supports A Bill Reauthorizing Electronic Surveillance That Grants Immunity To Telecommunications Companies. Obama: “Under this compromise legislation, an important tool in the fight against terrorism will continue. It does, however, grant retroactive immunity, and I will work in the Senate to remove this provision so that we can seek full accountability for past offenses. So I support the compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as President, I will carefully monitor the program, review the report by the Inspectors General, and work with the Congress to take any additional steps I deem necessary to protect the lives and the liberty of the American people.”
- Obama’s “Lies About My Father” 6/22/2008 From Obama What’s The Facts: “In a 2002 anti-war speech, Obama told the audience, “My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain.” But in his autobiography, “Dreams of My Father,” Obama states his grandfather never engaged in combat. “Gramps returned from the war never having seen real combat, and the family moved to California, where he enrolled at Berkeley under the GI bill,” he writes. “But the classroom couldn’t contain his ambitions, his restlessness, and so the family moved again.” Obama’s 2002 claim his grandfather enlisted in the Army the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor is contradicted by Army records showing Dunham signed up June 18, 1942 – six months after Pearl Harbor.”
- Obama Flip Flop on the Death Penalty 6/25/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “Running For The Illinois State Senate In 1996, Barack Obama Opposed The Death Penalty. Question: “Do you support capital punishment?” Obama’s Answer: “No.”…”Senator, what’s your reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision today striking down the death penalty for a child rapist?” Obama: “I disagree with the decision. I have said repeatedly that I think that the death penalty should be applied in very narrow circumstances, for the most egregious of crimes.” — See Nelson Guirado’s entire list of 49 flip flops by clicking here.
- Team Obama Disagrees with Itself on Mandating Individual Insurance Coverage! 6/26/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “Asked if Obama would be seen as reversing himself if he were to endorse an individual mandate after clashing with Clinton on the issue, (Obama spokeswoman Kavita) Patel dismissed the concern. ‘He has not said he is opposed to it,’ Patel told ABC News. ‘He has voiced his disagreement with having that be a part of his health-care plan last year. But he is not opposed to the idea itself.’…Obama: “We’ve got a philosophical difference which we’ve debated repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it, and my belief is the reason that people don’t have it is not because they don’t want it, but because they can’t afford it.” (Barack Obama, CNN/Univision Democrat Presidential Debate, Austin, TX, 2/21/08)”– ConservativeAmerican.org: Only a glimpse of the many lies, broken promises and flip flops still to come. He has taken John Kerry to a new level and is both for, and against everything!
- Obama Flip Flop on Welfare Reform 7/1/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “”Barack Obama aligned himself with welfare reform on Monday, launching a television ad which touts the way the overhaul ‘slashed the rolls by 80 percent.’ Obama leaves out, however, that he was against the 1996 federal legislation which precipitated the caseload reduction.”
- Obama Flip Flop on Gay Marriage 7/1/8 – The Sacramento Bee newspaper: “Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who previously said the issue of gay marriage should be left up to each state, has announced his opposition to a California ballot measure that would ban same-sex marriages.”
- Obama’s Family Scandal # 1-Broken Promise to Kenya –7/02/08 Evening Standard: Obama promised help for a school in his grandmother’s village but has not given any. “I have said I will assist the school and I will”…although Obama did not say “financial”, “there was no doubt among us [teachers] that is what he meant. We interpreted his words as meaning he would help fund the school, either personally or by raising sponsors or both.” She added 10 of the students are Obama’s relatives…While Obama had a new Rezko house, he let his own grandmother down. Sarah Obama confidently told reporters before his visit: “When he comes down here, he will change the face of the school and, believe me, our poverty in Kogelo will be a thing of the past.” She lives in a “small brick house with no running water, a tin roof and roving chickens.”
- Obama’s Flip-Flop on Parital Birth Abortion
- Obama’s Lie About His Support of Late Term Abortions and Partial-Birth Abortions 7/5/8 OnTheIssues.org correctly notes, “In 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research. He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007.” Democrats have continued to claim he never supported partial birth abortion, but that is not accurate. Even Obama’s own “Organizing for America” website admits he voted against a bill that would have prevented partial birth abortions in Illinois: “”There was a bill that came up in Illinois that was called the ‘Born Alive’ bill that purported to require life-saving treatment to such infants. And I did vote against that bill,” Obama said Tuesday. “The reason was that there was already a law in place in Illinois that said that you always have to supply life-saving treatment to any infant under any circumstances, and this bill actually was designed to overturn Roe v. Wade, so I didn’t think it was going to pass constitutional muster.”” A good story, but a story that Jill Stanek and Obama Banking Committee Lie – 07/25/2008 Newsbusters reports Obama said: “We passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran.” The problem? Obama was not on the US Senate Banking Committee!
- Obama’s Historic Lie that Inflating Your Tires Would Mean No Need for Offshore Drilling!! 7/30/2008 In a campaign stop, Barack Obama made the claim that properly inflating tires would save just as much energy as the nation would get by drilling offshore. Many news outlets debunk the silly claim.
- Obama Flip Flops on Off-Shore Drilling 8/3/8 CNN: “Sen. Barack Obama responded Saturday to criticism that he has changed his position on opposing offshore oil drilling. Obama said Friday that he would be willing to compromise on his position against offshore oil drilling if it were part of a more overarching strategy to lower energy costs…”When I’m president, I intend to keep in place the moratorium here in Florida and around the country that prevents oil companies from drilling off Florida’s coasts,” Obama told reporters in Jacksonville in late June.
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden Not Sure who his Running Mate is!– 8/23/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “During his first campaign rally with Obama as his vice presidential running mate…Biden introduced Obama by saying, “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!” – Not so fast pal. Barack isn’t America yet.
- Even Gaffe Machine Joe Biden Actually thinks He and Obama are running against Bush!– 8/27/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Biden doesn’t even know who his opponent is! Fox News reports ““Biden referred to John McCain as “George” during his vice presidential acceptance speech on Aug. 27, 2008, at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Co. “Freudian slip, folks, Freudian slip,” he explained.”
- Obama Family Scandal #2 – 08/28/2008 While preaching at his acceptance speech about looking out for your brother, Obama leaves his own half-brother to live in a hut in Africa. “Change we can believe in” apparently is in the family values category. UPDATE 9/15/9 Despite lecturing America on taking care of your brother, Obama still has not helped his own family in Kenya. Rush Limbaugh hints on his show today that HE might send money to the poor village in Kenya where Obama’s family lives, since Obama won’t.
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden Not Sure what he is running for!
- Gaffe-Tastic Joe Biden Continues Lies from 1988!
- Gaffe-Tastic Joe Biden Messus up Lebanon Facts – Fall, 2008 Emmett Tyrrell at Town Hall reports, “More seriously, during a debate with then-Gov. Sarah Palin, Biden erroneously claimed that the United States “drove Hezbollah out of Lebanon.” Alas, nothing of the kind had happened.”
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden Not Sure who Sarah Palin is!– 9/4/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “Biden mistakenly referred to Alaska governor Sarah Palin as the “lieutenant governor” of her state during a town hall meeting…at George Mason University in Manassas, Va. “I heard a very, by the way I mean this sincerely, a very strong and a very good political speech from a lieutenant governor of Alaska who I think is going to be very formidable, very formidable not only in the campaign but in the debate,” Biden said.”
- Obama Campaign Tosses American Flags in the Trash! 9/6/2008 Fox News: “John McCain’s campaign prepared to accuse Democrats Saturday of leaving behind 12,000 miniature American flags after Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver. Boy Scouts have arrived with 84 trash bags full of bundles of flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time in Colorado Springs. The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally. FOX News has been told a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.Veterans in Colorado Springs are expected to distribute the flags to the audience at the rally.”
- Obama Gaffe: Calls Himself Muslim – 9/7/2008 Time Magazine: “What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith…” — Obama on ABC’s This Week. Two months before the election, Obama discussed with George Stephanopoulos the false rumors that he is a Muslim and addressed the fact that John McCain had denied spreading the rumors. Obama is (and was) a Christian. Stephanopoulos jumped in to correct him, and the candidate quickly clarified. Obama is not a Muslim.
- Penalty called on Obama – Unsportsman-like conduct 9/9/2008 Barack Obama was off script campaigning yesterday when he took a jab at Sarah Palin. Palin had earlier made the joke that the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom like her was lipstick. It sure sounds like he calls Sarah Palin a pig in this video…
The next day, Obama denied he was talking about Sarah Palin.
- VP Candidate Biden says Hillary is more qualified than he is to be VP!– 9/10/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports at a town hall meeting in Nashua, N.H., Biden said, “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.” – Quite frankly, it would have been.
- VP Candidate Biden Wheelchair Gaffe– 9/12/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports during a “speech in Columbia, Mo., Biden called for Missouri State Sen. Chuck Graham, who is wheelchair-bound, to “stand up.” “Oh, God love ya,” Biden said, after realizing his mistake. “What am I talking about?“- None of us is ever sure, Mr. Biden.
- Obama Wrong on Savings Rate 9/14/2008 From Obama What’s The Facts: “Here’s another one not to be too alarmed about: Obama is flat-out wrong when he frets on his campaign Web site that “the personal savings rate is now the lowest it’s been since the Great Depression.” The latest rate, for the second quarter of 2008, is 2.6 percent — higher than the 1.9 percent rate that prevailed in the last quarter of Bill Clinton’s presidency.”
- Candidate Obama Tries to Delay Troop Withdrawal from Iraq! – 09/16/2008 New York POST: Campaigning…for a speedy withdrawal of US troops,…Obama tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence. Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari says Obama demanded a delay in July, 2008. “He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington.” Obama insisted Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops – and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its “state of weakness and political confusion.” Though Obama claims the US presence is “illegal,” he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate. His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the “weakened Bush administration,” Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate. Obama has made many contradictory statements with regard to Iraq. His latest position is that US combat troops should be out by 2010. Yet his effort to delay an agreement would make that withdrawal deadline impossible to meet.
- Obama’s “I Won Michigan” Gaffe 9/18/2008 Obama What’s The Facts: “Obama Claimed He “Won Michigan.” NBC’s David Gregory: “But Senator, you have not demonstrated that you can decisively put the nomination away. You have also not demonstrated that you can win some of the big states that’ll be important in the general election — California, New York, Ohio.” Obama: “Well, David, we’ve won Michigan and Georgia and Illinois and Missouri.” (NBC’s, “Today Show,” 3/5/08)”
- VP Candidate Biden Makes up History #1-Says Roosevelt was President in 1929!– 9/22/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports In a CBS interview, “Biden misspoke when he said Franklin D. Roosevelt was president when the stock market crashed in 1929. “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,” he said. Herbert Hoover — not Roosevelt — was president in 1929.
- VP Candidate Biden Makes up History #2-Says President was on TV in 1929!– 9/22/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports In a CBS interview, “Biden misspoke…”When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,” he said. Television had not yet been invented in 1929!
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden admits the Obama-Biden TV Ads are terrible! 9/22/8 – Fox News: “Asked by CBS in September how he felt about an Obama campaign ad that made fun of McCain’s inability to use a computer — a result of injuries sustained while a prisoner of war, Biden replied he thought it was “terrible.”
- Obama Flip Flop on Star Wars Missile Defense System! 9/27/8 Watch for yourself, from Youtube:
- Gaffe Machine Joe Biden warns America about his own Running-mate! October, 2008 – Fox News: “The too-much-truth syndrome predates Obama’s inauguration. — Biden stirred trouble in October when he told fundraising audiences that Obama, if elected, would face a “generated crisis” to “test the mettle of this guy.” Obama clarified that any president would face challenges, and tried to dismiss Biden’s dire prediction as one of his trademark “rhetorical flourishes.” Since taking office, Obama has faced a slew of international crises, though it may be unfair to say they were all “generated” to test Obama.
- Biden Gaffe – Media Didn’t Notice!
- Obama Flip Flops on McCain’s Role in Keating Five 10/6/8 Nelson Guirado reports Obama last May said: “”I don’t think there is any doubt John McCain’s public record about issues that he has apologized for or written about are not germane to the presidency.” Now, however, “The Obama campaign released a 13-minute documentary called “Keating Economics: John McCain and the Making of a Financial Crisis.” In the documentary, the narrator says that “the Keating Five involved all the things that have brought the modern crisis” and that McCain “has not learned the lessons and has continued to follow policies that are going to produce a disaster.”
- VP Candidate Biden Doesn’t Know How to Count!– 10/15/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports “When criticizing former GOP nominee John McCain in Athens, Ohio, on Oct. 15, 2008, Biden said, “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”
- Obama’s Joe the Plumber Gaffe – 10/25/2008 –
– 1995 – Obama offered a blatantly racist rant about white people ruining world! To be fair, we need to note that the quote he is reading from his book is one he attributes to his controversial pastor that he never listened to, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Apparently he did listen after all. It’s from Obama’s book first published released in 1995. Listen for yourself!
LIKE THE LIST? YOU’LL LOVE THE BOOK!
– 1995 – From Yid with Lid: “In the mid 1990s, ACORN and the SEIU partnered with other progressive organizations to help form the Marxist New Party, a political coalition. In 1995, Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement and used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers. The fact that Obama received the New Party’s endorsement in his first run for office cannot be dismissed as insignificant. On the contrary, Obama’s ties to the New Party and the New Party’s backers at ACORN and the SEIU are long-standing, substantial, and reveal a great deal about his personal political allegiances.” UPDATE 4-14-2010: New Zeal has a photo of a publication listing Obama as a New Party member as well as evidence that he was involved in 1993 with New Party sister organization, “Progressive Chicago.” Read about it here.
3/4/7 Barack Obama tells a crowd in Selma, Alabama “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.” The problem is Obama was born in 1961 and the march didn’t happen until 1965.
From Rush Limbaugh: “He [OBAMA] told the New York Times that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.” It was in an interview with Nicholas Kristof published in the New York Times. “Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer,” this is a quote from Nicholas Kristof, “reciting them with a first-rate [Arabic] accent.” Now, the first lines of this call to prayer, the Adhan, when translated (and this is in the New York Times. It’s a Nicholas Kristof piece) is: “Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme. I witness that there is no god but Allah.” That’s the Muslim call to prayer, and Obama told Nicholas Kristof… He recited it and said that it was “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.” March the 6th, 2007. Nicholas D. Kristof. (interruption) What? What, Snerdley? (interruption) It is what it is. Nicholas… (interruption) I just read to you from the piece. Nicholas Kristof, March 6th, 2007. I just read verbatim from the piece. (interruption) He did! He says the Muslim call to prayer… Here’s the quote. I’ll tell you again. “Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.'” That is an exact excerpt. (interruption) The Alabama slam? What’s the Alabama slam? That’s Nicholas Kristof. Obama didn’t say that. This is Kristof, the writer, in parentheses saying “it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks,” because they’re Christian, because they’re — yeah, because they’re southern Christians. They are the bitter clingers and so forth.”
1/15/2008 – As Tim Russert explained during the Presidential candidate debate: “MR. RUSSERT: Senator Obama, you gave an interview to The Reno Gazette-Journal, and you said we all have strengths and weaknesses. You said one of your weaknesses is, quote, “I’m not an operating officer.” Do the American people want someone in the Oval Office who is an operating officer? SEN. OBAMA: Well, I think what I was describing was how I view the presidency. Now, being president is not making sure that schedules are being run properly or the paperwork is being shuffled effectively. It involves having a vision for where the country needs to go.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes candidate Obama’s honesty in this comment. To him, it’s all about talk and vision, not action and doing things.
2/18/8 – Campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Michelle Obama says, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m proud of my country.” — I beg your pardon?! Watch for yourself:
4/15/2008 http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/rezko/894559,CST-NWS-rezko15.article 4/15/2008 The Examiner reports that while campaigning in Ohio, a state that had lost 245,000 jobs even before the economic crisis, Obama tried to pin the blame on Ohio’s loss of jobs on NAFTA, something that was the product of Bill Clinton’s presidency. FactCheck.org at the time showed that Obama’s assertions about NAFTA’s affect on the unemployment in Ohio were all false but that didn’t stop Obama from continuing to make them, trying to pin NAFTA on Hillary Clinton . It was clearly a cyncial politcal ploy by the candidate who claimed to want to change politics, but no one knew just how cynical until Februrary 28,2008. Until then, Obama was making speeches across the state saying that, if he was elected president, he would get rid of NAFTA and bring jobs back to Ohio. But on February 28th the Associated Press published a memo that was leaked to them by someone inside the Canadian embassy that showed Obama was more Nixon than JFK, cynically manipulating the unemployment fears of Ohio for his own political gain in ways that would have made Nixon blush. The memo, which in Canada became known as NAFTAgate, showed that at the very time he was promising he would get rid of NAFTA which he claimed would bring jobs back to Ohio, he had sent one of his campaign advisors, Austan Goolsbee to the Canadian Embassy in Chicago to assure them that he didn’t mean a word of what he was saying in Ohio, that it was only for “political positioning” and he had no intention of getting rid of NAFTA. When the memo was leaked Obama immediately went into damage control at first lying that the meeting ever took place. He continued lying about the facts surrounding Goolsbee’s trip to the Canadian embassy going so far as telling a Cleveland TV interviewer on February 29,2008 that the meeting “never happened”… When that cover up didnt work, the candidate who claimed to be “a new kind of politician” backtracked and claimed that Goolsbee wasnt an advisor to his campaign. When that didnt work ( because it too was a lie), he tried to claim Goolsbee went there on his own and was never sent by the Obama campaign. When that too proved to be untrue he conceded that Goolsbee was an advisor to the campaign and he was sent to the embassy but was never told to say what he did. Then Goolsbee himself tried to say he was misquoted or misunderstood which is,subsequent events proved was also false.”

6/16/2008 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online: “STATEMENT: On June 14, Obama foreign policy adviser Susan Rice called the RNC’s argument that Obama needed to go to Iraq to get a firsthand look “complete garbage.” EXPIRATION DATE: On June 16, Obama announced he would go to Iraq and Afghanistan “so he can see first hand the progress of the wars he would inherit if he’s elected president.”
6/18/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “During The Primaries, Barack Obama Pledged To Unilaterally Renegotiate NAFTA. NBC’S TIM RUSSERT: “A simple question. Will you as president say to Canada and Mexico, this [NAFTA] has not worked for us, we are out?” OBAMA: “I will make sure that we renegotiate in the same way that Senator Clinton talked about, and I think actually Senator Clinton’s answer on this one is right. I think we should use the hammer of a potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and environmental standards that are enforced.”…In The General Election, Barack Obama Now Says His Words Were “Overheated And Amplified.” — UPDATE: Obama once claimed no one from his campaign team contacted Canada about his “real” stance on the agreement (opposite of his public words), despite some in the Canadian government claiming that the contact did happen!
7/5/2008 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online: “STATEMENT: “Now, I don’t think that ‘mental distress’ qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term.” – Interview with Relevant magazine, July 1, 2008 EXPIRATION DATE: July 5, 2008: “My only point is that in an area like partial-birth abortion having a mental, having a health exception can be defined rigorously. It can be defined through physical health, It can be defined by serious clinical mental-health diseases.” statement to reporters.”
– 9/1/08 – Another Gaffe for Joe Biden. Fox News reports ““Biden said he was running for president — not vice president — during a roundtable discussion in Scranton, Pa. “Today is the moment for me as a United States senator running for president to put aside the national politics and focus on what’s happening down there,” Biden said.” – You lost the big prize, pal. Didn’t anyone tell you?
– Fall, 2008 Emmett Tyrrell at Town Hall reports, “Despite having been ignominiously forced from the 1988 Democratic presidential primaries for plagiarizing British Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock’s recollections of life in Welsh coal mines, Biden BS’d to an audience of Virginia coal miners that when he was young, he had been “a hard coal miner” — which was revealed to be a total fabrication.”
Another Biden gaffe from Michael Barone in the London Telegraph: “The biggest gaffe in the 2008 debate was the statement that Article I of the Constitution covers the president (it’s about Congress) and it was committed by Biden. The liberal-leaning press, on the alert for Palin mistakes, didn’t notice.”

On 9/4/11, ConservativeAmerican.org discontinued the list. It was simply too much work to keep up with all of the Team Obama lies and broken promises. And, the majority of voters were not even willing to listen to the truth about Obama. As history taught us, President Obama was easily reelected in 2012. People still believed the “If you like you plan, you can keep it” lie. Only after the President broke that promise, one that impacted tens of millions of Americans, did citizens start to wake up and realize who the REAL Barack Obama is. This list is presented to all of those now willing to look into Obama’s past.
