Profile In Idiocy: Barack Hussein Obonzo
Before you chimp out and vote for the Marxist Obonzo, please consider some of the genius gems he's uttered on the campaign trail. Then please consider that he's a total idiot.
In May of 2007 Obonzo claimed tornadoes in Kansas killed 10,000 people:
"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died. An entire town was destroyed."
The actual death toll was 12.
In May 2008 in front of a roaring Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Obonzo exulted:
"Thank you, Sioux City... I said it wrong. I've been in Iowa for too long. I'm sorry."
In May 2008 Obonzo redrew the map of the United States:
"Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states. I think one left to go?"
That comment is wrong on so many levels.
In May 2008, explaining why he was trailing Hillary Clinton in Kentucky, Obonzo again botched basic geography when he quipped:
"Senator Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle."
On what map is Arkansas closer to Kentucky than Illinois?
Obonzo is also ignorant with dates. As in March of 2007, on the anniversary of the Bloody Sunday uprising in Selma, Alabama, where Obonzo claimed his parents united as a result:
"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."
Except Obonzo was born in 1961. Whereas the Selma march took place in 1965. His spokesman, Bill Burton, later explained that Obonzo was "speaking metaphorically about the civil rights movement as a whole." He's a hole alright.
In May 2008 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Obonzo showed his knowledge of the war in Afghanistan by commenting on the lack of translators:
"We only have a certain number of them, and if they are all in Iraq, then it's harder for us to use them in Afghanistan."
Now the reason it's "harder for us to use them in Afghanistan" is this. The Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. Whereas the Afghanis speak Pashto or Farsi.
