Obama declares himself an expert on Judaism.
Apparently, Barack Obama told a visiting contingent of Conservative Jewish rabbis that he probably knows more about Judaism than any other president—on the same day that he referred to “Polish death camps.” For that last remark he apologized, but the one about Judaism is far more telling. In the first place, the claim is transparently absurd.
We can quickly pass over the fact that John Adams and James Madison, among the most educated men in the world at the time, knew Hebrew as well as Latin and Greek. Let’s just say that the president is, to put it mildly, punching above his weight here.
Remember Obama’s claim that his grandfather helped liberate Auschwitz? But Auschwitz was hundreds of miles from American troops and it was liberated by Russians. JAJ48@aol.com
