...find this maddening? Or are you liberal/socialists just too proud to admit you elected a total embarrassment?

Just in case your math is lacking...


Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama's father)
Born 4/4/36
Died 11/24/82 at the age of 46
He was 5 years old when WW 2 started, and less than 9.5 years old when it ended.

Lolo Soetoro (Obama's step father)
Born 1935
Died 3/2/87 at the age of 52
He was 6 years old when WW 2 started, and 10 years old when it ended.


I can hardley wait for the walking wounded to supply an answer to this obvious falsehood.

No, you wouldn't hear this from the MSP you read and listen to, that's why you continue to be ignorant. But New Mexico Hugh, here's your chance to find something useful, rather than wasting your time apologizing for Yardley, DNF, Roger et al.:rolleyes:

Obama was raised by his grandmother, Madelyn, and his grandfather, Stanley Dunham, after Obama was sent back to Hawaii from Indonesia by his mother at the age of 10. Stanley Dunham was the closest person to an active father in Obama's life. Stanley Dunham enlisted in the army in Hawaii following Pearl Harbor and served as a Sargeant. He is buried in Punchbowl National Cemetery. Obviously Obama misspoke, but he never knew his biological father.

Edit: BTW, Stanley Dunham was born in 1918 and died in 1992. Through his mother, Obama is related to six American Presidents, including James Madison, Harry Truman,Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and both Bushes.

So he doesn't know the difference between his Father and his Grand Father??

Seems odd for such an intelligent man, and a rather foolish defense of an obvious error.

BTW--Gearge Bush's Father actually DID serve in WW II.

no... just embarrassed that he turned out to not be liberal/socialist enough.

Bill, I think you would be hard put to find a post where I apologized for anyone other than myself, except of course in your delusional fly-over world on the prairie, where sword-falling is a fate befalling any who dare to disagree with you. rk called Yardley the "biggest ideologue on POTUS".
I beg to differ.
As to Yardley, I quite agree with his above post. (Please note the difference between ageeing and apologizing.) Children raised by Grand-parents, uncle's, foster families etc., frequently refer to them as mother and father.
Much as we recognize that you are not trully our 'uncle', we refer to you with that title. Que no?

BTW Where you been? I thought for a while that maybe you had been sent by the mod's to a forced hiatus for lack of civility...but if that were true, then PP would have become a ghost town.

Still, it would be odd for him to refer to his grandfather as his father.

I'm not denying that he misspoke. I know I have. Haven't you, ever?

Ever have a foster child? Did they call you Mr. Clinchy?

Glass house regards, JD

PS Did you notice I didn't mention any Bushism's? Whoops, I guess I just did. My bad.

All of us are surely have made bloopers ... but one might think he'd correct the "oops".

No, never had a foster child ... but if I had had one, he/she wouldn't have called me "Mr. Clinchy" ... since I'm a grandmother, not a grandfather ;-)

No doubt, Bush the elder was twice the man his boy ever dreamed of. JFK served too. I believe those two are the only veterans in my adult life to have served in active duty. Neither of them did exceptionally well as commander and chief. Although, they did have the guts to buck the establishment and do the right thing when circumstances dictated it. Unlike the last two Commander Guys.

Forgive me. My faux pas. As so often happens on PP, assumptions lead to false conclusions. My apologies Mrs/MS Clinchy.

What affectionate name do your grandchildren call you?

Further;
In college I had a roomate, who visited his Grandfather, who lived alone, most every day. I frequently visited with him. After my friends early demise, I continued to visit Grandfather Mitchell. We refered to each other as 'Grandfather and son'. We enjoyed each others company. and he imparted to me the benefit of his life experience.
When I met my wife, some years later, and told of this experience, She said to me, "I wish I had met your Grandfather."

"He wasn't really my Grandfather", I told her, "but he could have been."

Lines get blurred regards,

Stan,

as convenient and tempting as it would be to disregard those 8 years in between the two, i don't think he was referring to Obama, as he is the current Commander-in- Chief.-Paul

Paul,
I know what he was trying to say.

BUSH is BAD....


I get it, I get it, I do, everyday I read about how awful it was when Bush was President.

But here is a tip, George Bush served in the military.
For non-Vets to diss the National Guard tells me a lot!!
If the National Guard is so easy, step up!!

Otherwise a thank you to those who did will suffice.:D

BTW--Your welcome.:cool:

Stan,
While I agree wholeheartedly with you comments, I got skewered for DARING to imply my service or anyone's lack thereof was meaningful in these discussions. You remember that well, I believe you stood up for me on that, just like I will stand for you.

When the conversation is about peoples service, then commenting on peoples service is most appropriate.

Which service means the most?
Army?
Air Force?
Marine Corps?
Coast Guard?
National Guard?

Tell me which carries the most importance?

Stan,
You totally lost me on this one???:confused:

I respect honorable service in ANY of the military branches (including the Navy and Merchant Marines) or any civil service job, or any war effort job.

As for rank-order listing the importance of each, I will make no such attempt. What's the use?
