    Newsmax.com - Obama&#39s Uncle: He&#39s Using Buchenwald for Political Purpose

    Snip,
    Side note, Mr Obama also said his uncle liberated Auschwitz, it was actually Ohrdruf.

    2nd snip,
    Wow, the irony.

    Well, thanks for posting the link. Anybody who bothers clicking on it can see that the Great Uncle isn't saying anything remotely bad about Obama, and that the last quote was in response to questions about his war experiences (specifically what he thought about Germans), and not anything related to Obama's use of the experience in campaign.

    “This is a trip that he chose, not because of me I'm sure, but for political reasons,” Charles Payne told the German magazine Spiegel.

    I wouldnt feel too wonderful if a family member said this about my reasonings for doing something.

    Would you?

    You always have to go back to the link and check the context for yourself.

    Well... not really. He's saying the truth. He's taking the trip for political reasons. He's the president of your country. I'd be more worried if he wasn't. AIOSDhPSodiHDpOASIdhAPOs.


    Don't get me wrong, ok, I didn't dive into the thread to defend Obama. I just thought this would be wayyyy more scathing than it actually was. Like a serious chuck-under-the-bus sorta thing. Gotta say, I was a little disappointed.

    Hahaha, yeah, that must be so bizarre for people here. I have a bad habit of spazzing on the internet. I would always do it back in high-school on the messangers and it kinda caught on with most of my friends. There's no real explanation for it, it's almost like a tick, but I use it when I've said something... I'm not sure, something silly or strange, or even 'dumb'. Most people would just say "lol" after every reply, but I'd just spazz. I hated "lol".
