    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Barack Obama, caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech Tuesday, drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying 10,000 had died.
    The death toll was 12.
    "In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died—an entire town destroyed," the Democratic presidential candidate said in a speech to 500 people packed into a sweltering Richmond art studio for a fundraiser.

    He was tired. Poor Guy :badgrin:

    He sure does seem to have a problem with numbers. Here Barack Hussein Obama gets his facts wrong yet again:

    Oh, and I blame the Kansas tornadoes on him just to let you know.

    But the fact that he said 10,000 had died while only 12 had really died shows he had no idea what had really happened and should never have been talking about it in the first place. Obama was trying to make a political point, but he showed he knows NOTHING about what he tried to pretend was issue he did know about.

    It shows he's just as sneaky and lying as much as any other politician out there. He isn't the golden boy.

    I dunno about that but you can be sure if President Bush had slipped like that, the press and opposition would be having a field day. I am waiting for Bully to post in this thread calling him "Chimpy" Obama and making fun of his IQ and level of education...what do you think the chances are of that happening?

    The golden boy does not exist. Its only two party interest in winning the white house, and no politician really cares about anothing more than making programs that funnel money into thier own pockets. Sad really, but maybe someday a GOOD president will come along that is not assasinated.

    The warren report was bullshit by the way.

    Actually bush recently contradicted himself

    "One message I have heard from people of both parties is that benchmarks make sense and I agree," Bush said. He said his chief of staff, Joshua Bolten, would talk with congressional leaders "to find common ground" on benchmarks.

    Didnt Bush say less than a month ago, that he would "veto any timetable or artificial benchmarks"? And now he thinks it makes sense? Well at least someone is backing down, these troops need some kind of funding. Period
