What's next?

We have Obama saying that he sees "fallen heroes" in a crowd on Memorial Day.

We have Obama saying that his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz. Now, I'm not some "higher educated" guy, but didn't the Soviets liberate Auschwitz?

Michelle Malkin has an entire list of things that Obama has said that would make any normal person scratch their head:

Earlier this month in Oregon, he 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.”

Last week, in front of a roaring Sioux Falls, S.D., audience, Obama exulted: “Thank you, Sioux City. ... I said it wrong. I’ve been in Iowa for too long. I’m sorry.”

Explaining last week why he was trailing Hillary Clinton in Kentucky, Obama again botched basic geography: “Sen. 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?

Obama has as much trouble with numbers as he has with maps. Last March, on the anniversary of the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Ala., he claimed his parents united as a direct result of the civil rights movement: “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala., because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.”

Obama was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965. His spokesman, Bill Burton, later explained that Obama was “speaking metaphorically about the civil-rights movement as a whole.”

Earlier this month in Cape Girardeau, Mo., Obama showed off his knowledge of the war in Afghanistan by homing in on a 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.” The real reason it’s “harder for us to use them” in Afghanistan: Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. The Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi, or other non-Arabic languages.

Over the weekend in Oregon, Obama pleaded ignorance of the decades-old, multibillion-dollar massive Hanford nuclear-waste cleanup: “Here’s something that you will rarely hear from a politician, and that is that I’m not familiar with the Hanford, uuuuhh, site, so I don’t know exactly what’s going on there. (Applause.) Now, having said that, I promise you I’ll learn about it by the time I leave here on the ride back to the airport.”

I assume on that ride, a staffer reminded him that he’s voted on at least one defense-authorization bill that addressed the “costs, schedules, and technical issues” dealing with the nation’s most contaminated nuclear-waste site.

Last March, the Chicago Tribune reported this little-noticed nugget about a fake autobiographical detail in Obama’s Dreams from My Father: “Then, there’s the copy of Life magazine that Obama presents as his racial awakening at age 9. In it, he wrote, was an article and two accompanying photographs of an African-American man physically and mentally scarred by his efforts to lighten his skin. In fact, the Life article and the photographs don’t exist, say the magazine’s own historians.”

And in perhaps the most seriously troubling set of gaffes of them all, Obama told a Portland crowd over the weekend that Iran doesn’t “pose a serious threat to us” — cluelessly arguing that “tiny countries” with small defense budgets can’t do us harm — and then promptly flip-flopped the next day, claiming, “I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave.”

And we have Hillary Clinton, who seems to think that RFK's murder somehow plays into this election year. Clinton, who lied about taking sniper fire in Bosnia. Clinton, who's pure lust for power is so naked that it's scaring off a lot of DEMOCRATS this year.

Let's be honest, shall we? If it weren't for the whores, harlots and propaganda organs of the MSM, neither Clinton or Obama would have a snowflake's chance in hell of even getting the nomination, much less being President. But because the MSM has been carrying the load for the Democrat American Communist Party for so long, people don't know just how bad those two really are. Look at the long list of the gaffes, mis-steps, and outright lies told by those two.

Now imagine those things being said by a conservative. Or a Republican. Can you imagine the outrage, the spittle-flecked howls of anger that would come from the MSM? I don't have to imagine it, I can hear it every time Ann Coulter writes a new piece.

This is just one more way that the MSM has failed this country. By pushing their biased agenda, rather than reporting on real news, they have allowed this coming tragedy to happen.

Just another reason why I wouldn't wipe my ass with the New York Times, or watch CNN even if you paid me to do it.
