He probably mispoke. And yes, even presidents should be allowed to mix up a few words--what's the big deal? It's kinda obvious his father couldn't have served in WWII for the United States given his age and the fact that he was Kenyan, not an American citizen. It's not like he could be deliberately trying to blow smoke given the facts on the record.
President Obama was raised by his maternal grandfather who was his father in all respects of the name-- and who did indeed serve in WWII. Perhaps a freudian slip? (i.e. wanted to say grandfather, but said father because his grandpa was like a father to him). Geez, give the guy a break and worry about more important things than a simple word confusion!!!
Well, since the original "mis-statement" of Obama wasn't that funny--forgive me, I really don't see the humor in saying my father instead of grandfather, and since the video was posted with an article that took him seriously (it said "what else could he be lying about"), I took the posting as someone trying to flame people. Or as bait to start up some anti-Obama /anti-liberal /anti democrat fervor.
No flame or bait here.
I laugh at them all when they say or do something stupid. These are the guys elected to run our country!!
Bush, Reagan, Clinton, Nixon, George W, Carter, Ford,........It's Obama's turn.
George W. was fun to laugh at.......right?
I will admit that sharing it here may have been inappropriate.(td) I revisited it and see where that could stir the pot.
I do think a President totally misspeaking is funny.:D
