Essentially, everything Obama said was either a blatant lie, or a gross lack of knowledge of history. Furthermore, Obama's parents met and conceived Obama before Kennedy was even elected president, or inaugurated in January of 1961. The immigration and foreign exchange program he attributed to JFK was actually introduced under the Eisenhower (a Republican) administration.
This is reminiscent of Al Gore's inventing the internet, Hillary Clinton being named after the man who climbed Mt. Everest, even though she was born before the event occurred, and John Kerry's imaginary trip to Cambodia and other blatant misstatements.
As I stated earlier, this creates some very serious questions of character, in my mind, or worse. If the Senator did not purposely stretch the truth to gain credibility with an ignorant audience, he has a very poor foundation and understanding of historical fact. If that is the case, I would say that his credibility in understanding serious issues and lessons of history make him a dangerous choice for president of the United States.
