    Huyu jamaa zero kabisa. Licha ya hotuba yake kuandikwa lakini bado anachemsha tu. Soma hii chini...

    President Obama's speech to Congress last night might have emphasized urgency over historical accuracy when he stated, "And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it."

    Many inventors contributed to the rise of the car in modern-day life. But the U.S. Library of Congress credits German inventor Karl Benz with creating the first true automobile that ran on an internal combustion engine.

    Benz came out with his patented car around 1885, or about the same time when fellow Germans Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach produced a four-wheeled automobile with a four-stroke engine. The names of these inventors live on in modern car companies such as Daimler and its Mercedes-Benz division.

    By contrast, U.S. automotive pioneer Henry Ford did not start rolling out his mass-produced Model T cars until 1908. His claim to fame lies in popularizing automobiles as a common form of transportation, according to the Museum. Pedestrians and bikers may not thank him as much

    Nyani,
    At least you watched the speech. Indeed it was Karl Benz who created the first automobile, but it was Ford who mass produced it. So give a guy a break.

    I didn't waste my time to watch him...

    So who invented the automobile? Was it the Germans or the Americans? And don't give me a long winded answer....just answer the damn question...

    Now now, take it easy man and rise above the fray - We have had enough of whining from the likes of Hannity. The game was played and won - so bear it like a man and like it, 2012 isnt that far. A piece of advice - if the hope lies in the likes of Shree Jindall, the wait might take longer - poor GOP.

    I don't think Obantu made a Gaffe but more like he purposefully lied. Obantu is a known liar by the way, remember when he said he never heard Rev. Wright hateful sermons for over 20 years sitting in the church?

    Obama was talking about the modern automobile, not that German dinousar.

    You can't invent a "modern" version of something. That doesn't make any sense. You either invented something or you didn't.

    Americans never invented anything, it is Europeans who inventend things and developed them in America. I believe a car was invented in Europe and developed in America. Americans are so foolish they think thy invented everything, they even try to make us believe that they evented the world. Poor niggers and yankees.

    If that is the case then Obama is right, it is Americans who invented it. But if White Americans are Americans and White Europeans are Europeans then this luo man is wrong

    Kwe! kwekwe! kwekwe! Nyani usibishe, hotuba umeiangalia yote mpaka mwisho.

    Hii inatia moyo sana (It puts heart a lot) kwani sikutegemea ukakaa saa nzima hukuumetulia bila hata kutikisika na kumsikiliza kwa makini MH Obama.

    Hongera Nyani

    hapo tupo ukurasa mmoja, the first automobile transmission was invented in America by H Ford.
    Tatizo la hawa Conservative wanamuogopa sana Obama, na wanajaribu kila waliwezalo kumshusha ili wapate chance 2010(congress) na 2012 waandike maumivu jamaa ni kichwa na ana washauri makini sana. Kila akisemacho kina facts siyo kukurupuka ili mradi unaongea. Na mtafunua kila jiwe kutafuta gaffe za Obama mtaishia kuumwa na NGE
