Don't pick on Elizabeth Warren because she's not an African-American man!

People like Obama and Warren are not limited by literal truth. They use something called "greater truth" to promote themselves and their radical agenda.

Michael Patrick Leahy of Big Government recently reported (www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/01/Exclusive-Video-Shows-Elizabeth-Warren-Telling-Tall-Tale-of-Composite-Grandmother):

"A recently discovered video shows Elizabeth Warren telling another tall tale about her family. The day after she announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Democrat Elizabeth Warren told the convocation at the University of Massachusetts-Boston: 'My grandmother drove a wagon in the land rush to settle territory out west. It was 1889, she was 15 years old...She lived to be 94, to see her youngest grandchild — that's me — graduate from college..'.. The only problem with this story is that it's not true.

"Warren's maternal grandmother died in 1969, the year before Warren graduated from college, and her paternal grandmother was only 2 years old in 1889."

That has not been a problem for Barack Obama, so why should it be a problem for Warren?

Obama wrote about a composite girlfriend in his autobiography.

That was not a big deal.

See www.outsidethebeltway.com/obamas-composite-girlfriend-and-other-things-i-dont-care-about/:

"One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called 'New York girlfriend.' Obama never referred to her by name, or even by pseudonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail.

"But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.

"'During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir was a "compression" of girlfriends, including one who followed Genevieve [Cook] when he lived in Chicago,' Maraniss writes in his new biography, an excerpt of which was published online today by Vanity Fair.

"'In Dreams from My Father, Obama chose to emphasize a racial chasm that unavoidably separated him from the woman he described as his New York girlfriend,' Maraniss writes...."

See?

Obama had a reason for "compressing" in the book.

Obama also had a reason for connecting his parents' marriage to the Civil Rights Movement when he was running for President.

So Obama said that he was born because his parents were inspired by the Selma March.

Obama:

"What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation. It worried folks in the White House who said, 'You know, we're battling Communism. How are we going to win hearts and minds all across the world? If right here in our own country, John, we're not observing the ideals set fort in our Constitution, we might be accused of being hypocrites.' So the Kennedy's decided we're going to do an air lift. We're going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is.

"This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over to this country. He met this woman whose great great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves; but she had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that the world as it has been it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don't tell me I'm not coming home to Selma, Alabama."

The Selma March occurred in 1965.

Obama was born in 1961.

Times goes forward, not backward.

Obama was conceived before the Kennedy Administration began, so don't credit or blame the Kennedys for Obama being born.

But so what?

Don't be confused by what President Reagan called pesky facts"!

People like Obama and Warren are not limited by literal truth. They use something called "greater truth" to promote themselves and their radical agenda.
