Out Of Bounds!

Obama falsely claims to be Banking Committee member

by Steven Thomma - July 23rd, 2008 - McClatchy Washington Bureau

What happened: Obama on Wednesday was speaking to reporters in Israel when he tried to boast about what he'd done to protect Israel.

"Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee — which is my committee — a bill to call for divestment from Iran as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon," Obama said.

Why that's wrong: Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.

The problem is becoming clear. Obama is so out of touch with reality that he thinks anything he says will be believed. All of the major anchors believe everything he says. Why wouldn't everybody? Therefore: he can say anything whether it matches reality or not.
