Another Lie From The Chosen One - Obama's `Uncle' Liberted Auschwitz

Apparently nothing is beneath The Chosen One in his scramble for votes - nothing.

Obama's Memorial Day address was designed to show that in spite of his shilling fo r a US surrender in Iraq, Obama's down with veterans. The speech included a reference to his uncle, who Obama claims fought with General Patton's Third Army and supposedly helped liberate Auschwitz.

Just a couple of problems with that...

First, Auschwitz was liberated by the Red Army,, on January 27th, 1945. US troops were busy finishing up the Battle of the Bulge at that time, and didn't even cross the Rhine into Germany over the Remagen Bridge until March 7th.Did Obama's `uncle' fight with the Red Army?

Second, there the leetle matter of Obama's 'uncle'itself. According to the Chicago Tribune, Obama's American mother was an only child, who graduated high school in 1960.And on his father's side, there were no black Kenyans fighting for the allies in Eastern Europe.So, who was this `uncle'? Was he fighting with the Red Army?

Will the dinosaur media spend as much time on this as Hillary's Bosnia gaffe? Do you even have to ask?

And I won't even mention what the front page news would look like if John McCain had said something like this.The dino media would turn him into a poster boy for Alzheimer's.

This is just one of a series of outrageous gaffes by Mr. Hope n'Change, and he continues to get a free pass on all of them.

Aside from the outright lie, I find it personally disgusting that Obama would use a fabrication involving the heroics of the Third Army and a moving event like the liberation of Auschwitz to try and embellish his meager credentials for office.

An apology from him wouldn't be out of order...but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one if I were you.

UPDATE: As Gateway Pundit relates, this isn't the first time Obama has used this.

UPDATE: Obama's campaign has clarified things - just like all the other times. Apparently the Senator MEANT to talk about his white great-uncle, and he MEANT to say Buchenwald, not Auschwitz.
