This is just truly amazing. I almost don’t have words to express just how sad this is…but it does have some very important implications for the future of our country.
A couple of weeks ago, our glorious community organizer in chief spoke about his release of several terrorists in exchange for an army deserter who had basically defected to the enemy. Obama mentioned there have been three former presidents who made prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place during their time in office. He even tried to further defend this by saying these were, “much like mine.”
Listen to this quote from CNS News:
“This is what happens at the end of wars…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.”
Sadly, Obama just showed himself to be completely and utterly ignorant of American history. We could bring in grade school students who could explain his mistake very clearly. First, let’s debunk the actual misrepresented facts. The Revolutionary War ended in 1783 and George Washington wasn’t president until 1789…six years later!
Lincoln was assassinated in April of 1865. He never lived to see the end of the Civil War, which occurred the following month. Additionally, there were no deals made to free the prisoners taken on either side. Once the war ended, the prisoners were simply set free.
FDR also was not around at the end of WWII. He had died of a stroke well before this. In fact, it was Harry S. Truman’s decision to drop the two nuclear bombs on Japan that ultimately brought the war to a conclusion. Once again, we made no deals for prisoners. We simply went in and released them when it was necessary.
Obama, the two-term president of the US and arguably the most powerful man in the world, has no knowledge of our history. If this doesn’t give more truth to the idea that he really isn’t an American…then you are just simply blind to the facts. NONE of the three presidents he mentioned specifically were even alive at the end of their respective wars, much less authorize any prisoner swaps. Aside from that, their successors didn’t even make any prisoner swap deals, let alone anything that would come close to the Obama 5-for-1 farce.
Bergdahl was a traitor and a deserter. There is now ample evidence to support this conclusion. Let’s not forget that during all three of the wars Obama mentioned there were large numbers of deserters and traitors who were shot or hung.
Even worse…since I readily accept the fact that Obama is simply clueless…does this ignorant foreigner really surround himself with staff that is so stupid as to not catch a mistake of this magnitude? They are either not critical thinkers, or they simply don’t care. You would think there would be at least one person in the Obama White House with the brains to at least check any historical and factual references for their accuracy, rather than just taking the word of a foreign-born president.
What do YOU think? How sad does this statement by Obama illustrate his ignorance of US History? Should we be concerned about this? Does it give more credence to those who claim Obama doesn’t meet the constitutional requirements to be President?
