Obama Don't Know Much About History

This morning in St. Petersburg, Russia, President Obama contradicted himself within the wingspan of a gnat while discussing striking Syria. He said “I’m not drawing an analogy to World War II,” and then proceeded to make an analogy to World War II.

“[W]hen London was getting bombed, it was profoundly unpopular both in Congress and around the country to help the British,” Obama said. “It doesn’t mean it wasn’t the right thing to do. Just means people, you know, are struggling with jobs and bills to pay and they don’t want their sons or daughters put in harm’s way. These entanglements far away are dangerous and different.”

According to the Free Beacon, Obama got his history entirely wrong.

Gallup poll in 1940, when the German bombing campaign in Britain took place, showed 60 percent of Americans felt it was more important to help England win, even at risk of going to war, than to stay out.

Additionally, 68 percent of Americans believed the future safety of the United States depended on England winning the war, and 85 percent felt England would lose if Americans stopped sending war materials to help.

Trust this guy to tell the truth and lead America into war? Mm, I don’t think so.
