    It appears that Mr. Obama goes from Dumb to Dumber .... (this came to me from a fellow pastor, and before posting I tried to find if this article was true or false. It appears to be factual, and if it is, it sure shows us that those feeding Obama info, need to be fired).

    You may recall that President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, “much like this Bergdahl swap” he said convincingly.

    CNN carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars."

    President Barack Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. "That was true for George Washington…That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back, and that’s the right thing to do.”

    Really?

    That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over.

    What's wrong with his statements? Let’s keep it simple - EVERYTHING is wrong!

    1) George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange. Also, Obama doesn't tell you, is that both the Brits and the colonists exchanged prisoners of war because both had "few facilities to accommodate large numbers of prisoners," according to the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.

    2) Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.

    3) FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn't do what this jerk says he did. You’ll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II. He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary.

    4) None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of official prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by the same president who claimed to have been to “all 57 States."

    5) It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars.

    :wavey: What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless? :smilewinkgrin:

    ... Or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb, lying rhetoric and behavior! For instance,
    Obama mentioned while being interviewed on Super Bowl Sunday while in the Whitehouse kitchen, that George Washington drank beer in the White House when he was president. George Washington never lived in the White House.

    Finally, I don’t recall our current war ever being over … at least in the minds and hearts of those who started the ball rolling!:laugh:

    Many have said that (not necessary on this board)
    that Obama is virtually perfect.

    Oh how nice. RD2 is circulating another anti-Obama email.

    The fact is that Washington, Lincoln and FDR did prisoner swaps. By focusing on the phrase "presidents made prisoner swaps at the end of wars" and then attacking that as untrue, the email attempts to say that these military leaders didn't do prisoner swaps. False.

    So, hearsay and nothing you can substantiate.

    I'm having more fun picking out what's wrong in your statement.


    1. Obama isn't the most powerful man in the world, he's owned and controlled by the money changers and corporations. That makes him a puppet.

    2. Obama doesn't reign supreme over anything the money changers and corporations won't allow him to reign over. That makes him a puppet.

    More specifically Obama is a teleprompter reading puppet.

    If you have to take issue with anyone over the stupid things Obama says take it up with the people writing the script he reads from.
