Republicans have raised the possibility that Obama, endowed by superhuman powers, is the first superhero to have become President of the U.S.  According to Republicans, Obama bears the responsibility for the death of Capt. Khan, in Iraq.  The fact that Capt. Khan died in 2004, five years before Obama took office, should have been no impediment to a man of Obama's accomplishments.

  1. It's a greater indication their ignorance of American/world history. They have no knowledge of the chronological order of history. That's why they also blame Obama for the government surplus being transformed into a deficit and the ensuing recession. Clinton was likewise blamed for the Twin Tower attacks which took place under Bush with plenty of forewarning that such an attack was imminent. These are the direct effects of privatizing and profitizing our education system.

    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” ~ Isaac Asimov

    Republicans deny this connection. "There is no 'i' in denial." ~ Trump (probably ... though he denies it.)
