Newspapers across America are obsessed with President Barack Obama’s soaring rhetoric from his speech from of the 50th Anniversary of the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Alabama. That event was a turning point in the battle for civil rights and equality between races. The liberal New York Times cropped out a picture of President Bush, as they wanted to focus on the imagery of a black President attending such an historic event.

He is a horrible President, but he knows how to read a speech well.

However, long before he had such a large team of writers for his teleprompter, he spoke another time in Selma. And that time, in 2007, he had the ARROGANCE to claim it was that march which lead to him being conceived.

The only problem with that is when the march took place in 1965, Obama was already three years old. Here is the transcript and video:

“This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets [to study in the U.S.], and he met this woman who’s great-great-great-great grandfather had owned slaves,” he said.

“But she had a different idea. There’s some good craziness going on, because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that in the world that it has been it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child. But something’s 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… 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 when I come to Selma, Alabama. I’m here because somebody marched for our freedom. I’m here because somebody marched for me. I stand on the shoulders of giants,” he continued.
