Obama Quote: “Throughout our history, America’s confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world.”
This was a part of a speech Barack Obama gave on Wednesday, July 16, in West Lafeyette, Indiana. Read the quote carefully again. I’ll wait.
Okay, did you catch it?
Yep, that’s the one, the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor. Sure, it must’ve been a big bomb. After all, it took out all those boats. Perhaps he forgot that it was a lot of bombs (and kamakazees), and it was the Japanese who dropped them (they didn’t “fall” on Pearl Harbor). Oh, wait, political correctness wouldn’t allow him to say that! It might offend people if he correctly quotes history and said it was the Japanese that attacked us!
And the more shocking part is, this guy, Comrade Obama, was a long time resident of Hawaii. Surely, the history of Pearly Harbor, and being in the same state as the USS Arizona memorial, would have given him a clue as to what really happened December 7th, 1941. Wait, maybe he merely misspoke, or was confused. After all, it is hard to keep track of the history of all 60 states (57 of which he claims to have visited).
You know, if McCain had made this blunder, the leftist media would have been all over it, calling him a confused old man. It may have, like “potato” did for another Republican so long ago, ruined his political career. Did you hear a peep from them over Obama’s revision of history? Of course not. Apparently, his teflon shield is still working at full strength.
And what’s this “adapted” crap? We didn’t adapt. We defended our nation. We faced the enemy and defeated them. Period.
