You Can’t Make Things Up Mr. Obama

Barack Hussein Obama has been in a tizzy since a girl beat him up and he has been trying to regain his mojo for the past two weeks. In campaign appearances this week he said that McCain and Palin were being untruthful about her statement that she said no thanks to the bridge to nowhere. As an aside, she ran on the idea that money committed to it should remain committed until the problem was evaluated. When it was clear that the federal government was not interested in committing more money to it she decided that there were more pressing issues in Alaska and used the money for other infrastructure items. BTW, 65% of Alaska is under federal government control so a lot of federal money goes there.

Back to the point. Obama chided McCain and Palin and said “you can’t make stuff up.” He repeated this several times for emphasis. Basically, he said that McCain and Palin were liars and making up stories. Obama expects truth and I have to agree with him; you can’t make stuff up. So let us take a look at how well he has followed that line of thought.

Barack Obama said “I have never been a Muslim.”
The reality is, school records from his time in Indonesia show that he was registered, in both schools he attended, as a Muslim. Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Barack Obama said he never practiced Islam. He also said he never attended a Mosque.
The reality is that Barack Obama practiced Islam as a child. He attended a Christian school, was registered as a Muslim and had to read the Koran and go to Mosque. People who knew him said that he attended Mosque. Additionally, in his book, Dreams of My Father, Obama wrote about how he got in trouble for making faces in Koran studies. One does not study the Koran if one is not a Muslim. Obama is also able to recite the opening lines of Arabic call to prayer and does it with a good accent. Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Before radical Obama followers attack me for mentioning Islam and Muslims, let me quote the Jerusalem Post because I agree with it.

OBAMA’S HAVING been born and raised a Muslim and having left the faith to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president.

Barack Obama said he has always been a Christian.
The reality is that Barack Obama was a Muslim at one time. I have shown this and the JP article goes into greater detail leaving no doubt that this is the case. Additionally, Obama has stated on a number of occasions that he converted to Christianity in the 1990s after attending services at Reverend Wright’s church. If he converted in 1990 then the youngest age he could have been was 28 depending on when in the year he converted. This begs the question; what was he before he converted? He did not say he became a Christian as in he really had no religious affiliation. He said he converted so it is only fair to ask; from what? Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Barack Obama said he would accept and use public funds for his campaign. In fact, he would “aggressively pursue an agreement” [for both candidates to accept public funds] with whomever was his opponent.
The reality is that Barack Obama did not aggressively pursue public funding. He decided to reject it with the expectation that he would continue to bring in huge amounts of cash from donors (how is that working out). Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Obama said; “Selma got me born.”
The reality is that Selma happened 4 years after he was born so it had no affect on his birth. Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Obama called the money Edwards and Clinton received from unions “special interest ” money as a way to show them in the back pockets of special interests.
The reality is that Obama now gets a boatload of money from unions but now he calls them representatives of working people and he is thrilled to have their money support. Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Obama said [to a union audience]; “I happen to be a proponent of single-payer universal healthcare coverage. That’s what I’d like to see.”
The reality is that during one of the primary debates Obama said [about healthcare]; “I never said that we should try to go ahead and get single-payer.” Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

Obama, in 2004, ruled out running for national office.
I think we all know the reality of that one. Hey Barry, you can’t make stuff up.

I think this is sufficient and by now you get the point. None of his toadies will see the contradiction and I am willing to bet at least one of them will defend him in the comments.
