Still More "Obamafacts"

Obamafacts are just like real facts, except they're not true. But it's ever so liberating to be able to make up "facts" to support your theories and worldview when the real facts don't. And it's especially nice when the MSM is too busy bowing before its Messiah to bother with little things like truth.

Victor Davis Hanson has a nice, if incomplete, collection of Obamafacts about history in this article.

On Obama's Cairo speech,

"Obama also insisted that 'Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition.' Yet the Spanish Inquisition began in 1478; by then Cordoba had long been re-conquered by Spanish Christians, and was governed as a staunchly Christian city.

In reference to Iraq, President Obama promised that 'no system of government can or should be imposed upon one nation by any other.' Is he unaware of how the United States imposed democracies after World War II?

Obama also stated: 'For centuries, black people in America suffered the lash of the whip as slaves and the humiliation of segregation. But it was not violence that won full and equal rights...'

The only thing that ended slavery in the United States was the Civil War, which saw some 600,000 Americans — the vast majority of them white — lost in a violent struggle to ensure that nearly half the country would not remain a slave-owning society."

The problem with Obamafacts is that they lead to Obama's policies, based on make believe, which don't work as well when they collide with the world of real facts.
