If your grandfather essentially functioned as your father, yes, you just might say that.

Obama's Grandfather on his Mother's side served in the 2nd World War. A person has at least two Grandfathers one on his father's side and one on his mother's side. If you are worried about a potiential yellow belly in the family tree of a US Presidential candidate no Romney has ever served in the US military and Mitt's father was an able bodied man of military age during the 2nd World War. Ask your self why didn't George Romney stand and fight with millions of young Americans from 1941-45?

Thank you for the fact check link but facts do not matter to the right wing. They will continue spewing their lies no matter how many times their lies have been debunked. See the birther and death panels lies for more information.

OMG, it's the omnipotent SNOPES!

Do you ever even read that crap?

Here's a line from the end of that article:

"But his misstatement was simply a mistake; not a lie."

And that's the way it is with Obama. Lots of mistakes, no lies.

How can you link Snopes with a straight face?

Liberals are smart, win elections by calling anyone who criticizes a minority racist.

It doesn't matter it Barack Obama's father was the General at the time. Your racist and anti-Democratic views don't allow you to see anything positive.



Exactly.



That's what the OP does. Beats the dead horse until a new way to spout racism reveals itself.



Sorry that a Democratic Black President scares you. Welcome to 2012.
Sorry that your reading comprehension is so poor, you ignore the facts when presented to you. If you take your racist glasses off, perhaps you will be able to read and interpret more accurately.
