During his first run for elected office, Barack Obama played a greater role than his aides now acknowledge in crafting liberal stands on gun control, the death penalty and abortion– positions that appear at odds with the more moderate image he’s projected during his presidential campaign.The evidence comes from an amended version of an Illinois voter group’s detailed questionnaire, filed under his name during his 1996 bid for a state Senate seat.Late last year, in response to a Politico story about Obama’s answers to the original questionnaire, his aides said he “never saw or approved” the questionnaire.They asserted the responses were filled out by a campaign aide who “unintentionally mischaracterize(d) his position.”But a Politico examination determined that Obama was actually interviewed about the issues on the questionnaire by the liberal Chicago non-profit group that issued it. And it found that Obama – the day after sitting for the interview – filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes adding to one answer.
Obama would swear to protect and defend, this NATION from all enemies, foreign AND domestic…as is part of the Presidential oath.
With what, Obama, with what? Your Messianic vision? Your flair for words and half, if that, truths? The half truths were shown, concerning your ‘I know Rev. Wright is a “racist”, but I love the man, regardless’. I know my wife, Michelle is an ingrate “racist”, but I love her, regardless.
