On Memorial day, 2008, Obama gave a speech, where he stated:
"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in...in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."
So he claimed at least. Some may say that was just a slip of the tongue (from the smartest man in the world). But alas, it appears to be a problem. For he appears to be making a habit of seeing dead people. On June 23 of this year:
"Throughout my service, first as a senator and then as a presidential candidate and then as a President, I’ve always run into you guys. And for some reason it’s always in some rough spots.
First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously."
That would be a good trick, except for the fact that Jared Monti was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was awarded the CMH, but posthumously.
So he must be able to see dead people since the smartest man in the world would never lie - or make the same mistake twice! Right?
