Much has been made of Governor Rick Perry's "senior moment" during the most recent GOP debate...but it seems to Hope n' Change that Barack Obama has shown much bigger and more frequent manifestations of a bad memory.
Besides forgetting that the Muslim call to prayer was "one of the sweetest sounds on Earth" while running for president, Mr. Obama also forgot the contents of every sermon that Jeremiah Wright ever gave, forgot that Tony Rezko had contributed generously (and suspiciously) to the purchase of Mr. Obama's home, and even forgot that terrorist Bill Ayers was a longtime friend and political sponsor.
And since taking office, Mr. Obama's memory seems to have only gotten worse. For instance, he's apparently forgotten to close Guantanamo Bay, forgotten that he would never sign any bill which contained earmarks, forgotten that his door would never be open to lobbyists, and forgotten that our nation likes Israel and dislikes the idea of a nuclear-armed Iran.
Even more frightening, the president's memory problems actually seem to be infectious...and the more he speaks, the less people seem to remember about what was said in the past! For instance, no one seems to remember that the president said of Obamacare "if you like your current healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period. Case closed." Otherwise, some journalist would surely ask the president why 4.5 million previously insured people have lost their employer healthcare because of Obamacare's provisions.
Similarly, there seems to be a curious memory lapse associated with the fact that the president swore that Obamacare would bend the curve of insurance costs downwards...while the exact opposite is taking place. Here at Hope n' Change, our premiums just skyrocketed 12% while reducing the coverage given. Thanks, Barack, Harry, and Nancy!
For now, we don't think that Rick Perry's memory problems are particularly serious when compared to those examples cited above...and many, many more.
And the good news is that America's problem with Barack Obama's growing forgetfulness can be easily remedied.
All we need to do is remember to vote.
