Our Historically Challenged President

Aside from stating that there were 57 states instead of 50; and referring to his Muslim faith when he meant Christian, Victor Hanson lists many things that President Obama says that are not accurate.  Evidently he is not as knowledgable as he wants us to think he is.

Here’s the beginning of the article, check the link to read the whole thing!

Our Historically Challenged President
A list of distortions.

By Victor Davis Hanson

In his speech last week in Cairo, President Obama proclaimed he was a “student of history.” But despite Barack Obama’s image as an Ivy League-educated intellectual, he lacks historical competency, in areas of both facts and interpretation.

This first became apparent during the presidential campaign. Candidate Obama proclaimed then that during World War II his great-uncle had helped liberate Auschwitz, and that his grandfather knew fellow American troops that had entered Auschwitz and Treblinka.

Both are impossible. The Americans didn’t free either Nazi death camp. (Regarding Obama’s great uncle’s war experience, the Obama team later said he’d meant the camp at Buchenwald.)
