Obama is going to give Bill Clinton a run for the title of “Slick”.
The messiah of the Political Left has a litany of lies told to conceal his true past. This lie is simply a boldfaced one for opportunism’s sake. Yesterday in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Obama lied about signign up for Selective Service in another “mispoken” moment in the interview that revealed his slip of the tongue about his “Muslim faith”.
I’m sure the Spin Doctors in the messiah’s campaign are already working overtime to restate what Obama meant by the lie.
One little problem… there wasn’t any requirement to sign up for Selective Service in 1979!
As Tom Blumer of NewsBusters.org and BizzyBlog.com notes, “Obama could not have registered upon graduation from high school as he claimed. His actually registered occurred roughly 45 days after… registrations took place in 1980. Obama’s statement, that ‘I had to sign up for Selective Service when I graduated from high school,’ is inarguably false.”
As any look into the facts will note, President Gerald Ford terminated the registration requirements on March 25, 1975 and Jimmy Carter didn’t reinstate the registration requirement until July 2 of 1980. Obama graduated from the private college prep school, Punahou School, in 1979.
The timing doesn’t quite work to make truth of what Obama told Stephanopoulos.
Facts are stubborn things, eh?
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: One of our viewers wrote in—you talk about service—and asked, Brenda Godfrey Bryan, Marietta, Georgia: did you ever consider joining the armed services to protect and serve our country? If not, why?
BARACK OBAMA: You know, I actually did.
BARACK OBAMA: You know, I had to sign up for Selective Service when I graduated from high school. And I was growing up in Hawaii, and I had friend whose parents were in the military, there were a lot of Army, military bases there. And I always actually thought of the military as some ennobling and honorable option. But keep in mind: I graduated in 1979. The Vietnam War had come to an end. We weren’t engaged in an active military conflict at that point. So it’s not an option that I ever decided to pursue.
So how will the Obamatons explain away this lie?
So…Obama was NOT required to have to sign up for Selective Service (and hopefully some journalist worth his salt is going through the F.O.I. to dig up whether or not he ever did), but The One; The Annointed Barrack The Hussein Obama says he did not “pursue” the military because we were not at war at the time.
Does anyone believe for one second that Obama would have gone into the military given what he wrote in his two autobiographies??
