    The Department of Defense briefed the President this morning.
    They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan.
    To everyone's surprise, he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
    Finally, he composed himself and asked, "Just how many is a brazilian?"
    This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of billion or trillion either!!!G

    LOL. So true.

    Joe Biden answered: "A couple of dozen short of the number of rounds of golf you've played, Mr. President."

    Appears you lifted this verbatim from

    http://www.daltonforums.com/showthread.php?p=21757

    which was posted in 2011.

    Not current news. Also, did this happen at all? On a quick check I cannot find any link giving any information on any Brazilians in Afghanistan. Another piece of misinformation ... or so it seems at the moment.



    I noticed you did not give a link. Can you give a credible link on this?

    If someone read this and did not realize this was a joke then I just feel sorry for them. And as jokes go they get passed around. No one ever knows the original source. The source could have just as well been a grandpa in the country somewhere.

    Of course if you just do not like any criticism of Obama then you will most likely try to find a small minded way to demonize this.

    Oh, come on! If you knew it was false and a joke why did you post it under news and not clean humor?
