He's Not My President?

Obama Lies About Recollections of Apollo Moon Landing

obama liarOn this 40th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, President Obama was hosting former astronauts to commemorate the occasion.  As documented by an Associated Press article President Obama stated the following:

The president said he recalled watching Apollo astronauts return to Hawaii after splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. He said he’d sit on his grandfather’s shoulders and “we’d pretend like they could see us as if we were waving at folks coming home.”

Our narcissistic President always seems to find a way to make events about his personal experiences, but once again we catch our President in a lie regarding his recollections.

President Obama lived in Jakarta Indonesia for five years during his childhood from ages 6 to 10.  In July of 1969 when the Apollo moon landing occurred President Obama was 7 years old and would turn 8 years of age the next month.  He couldn’t possibly of been looking out at the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii from his Grandfather’s shoulders in the summer of 1969 as he wasn’t living with his Grandfather in Hawaii in 1969.  He was living with his mother and step father Lolo Soetero in Jakarta Indonesia in 1969.  This is much like the made up stories he stated during the campaign about the Selma Alabama bombings.  Ask yourself, why does our President consistently lie about his American childhood experiences?  The answer you might come to is maybe because President Obama didn’t have any American childhood experiences.  Why do any of you trust a President whom consistently lies about his past?

  1. wow! good detective work here. I am sure others who read the article from the AP didn’t even question it’s validity. That’s why we have you. Indeed, it hits a nerve with me.

  2. Bunk! Obama didn’t specify he watched the FIRST astronauts return from the moon. We had more than one mission there you know! He was back in Hawaii sometime in 1971, and there were 2 moon missions in 1972.

    • OK, so what you are telling me is that in 1972 when Obama was 11 years old he was still climbing up on the shoulders of his Grandfather looking out over the Pacific Ocean? Sorry, friend I’m not buying it. Maybe he was on the beach with his Grandfather, but I doubt at age 11 he was on his Grandfather’s shoulders.

      All that I am asking of you is to think about the propoganda about this man that you are being fed everyday. Open your mind to the possibilities of the propaganda and lies that are being told to you. You never know what you might just find, like the truth.

        No you’re not. You’re flat out calling him a liar.

        What was it you were saying about an “open mind?” Were you deliberately being ironic?

        • You are right HistorianDude. In this particular instance and in this particular blog post, I am calling him a liar. In fact, I even say so in the title of the blog post. I should not have used the word propaganda with reference to this specific article. I am saying Barack Obama is lying about this recollection. In other articles, propaganda has been used to promote Barack Obama. And of course in other articles, truthful statements from and about Barack Obama are made.

          I’m not being ironic in anything I say, I’m simply sharing the truth. I certainly have an open mind, but when it is clear that someone is lying, is it not OK to call them out?

  3. I’m sure there is no way he could have been visiting his grandfather, right?

    • You are absolutely correct that he could have been visiting is Grandfather. Reason and logic simply tell us to look at what is probable rather than possible. I grant you absolutely the possiblity exists, but I find it improbable that it happened and more probable that Mr. Obama continues to fabricate his past. It’s your call, you have your own mind to use to evaluate. I’ve simply shared my evaluation.
