Messiah Lies About His Senate Committee Assignment

This guy is going to be harder than Bill Clinton to keep up with.  The next whopper whips along before you have time to wrap your brain around the last one.

At Powerline, John Hinderaker goes through Obama’s continuing contortions (in Israel) over how Jerusalem must remain the undivided capitol of Israel, unless of course it is divided and unless of course it is also the capitol of “Palestine,” which possibilities absolutely positively mark no change in the messiah’s original decree, which he really really meant, that Jerusalem must remain the undivided capitol of Israel.  Obama then continued (italics mine):

Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don’t have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.

John explains the rest: 

But Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Obama just made that up so he could count the committee’s action as one of “my deeds.”

If committed by a Republican, this would be a gaffe of historic proportions. Even a Senator as inattentive to his duties as Obama certainly knows what committees he serves on. For him to fabricate the claim, out of whole cloth, that the Senate Banking Committee is “[his] committee,” strikes me as another sign of Obama’s megalomania. That, plus more evidence that he is totally at sea without a teleprompter.
