Barack Hussein Obama is trying to pawn off very liberal statements he made on gun control, abortion, and the death penalty on low-level staffers, according to the Politico:
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 has 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.
B Hussein O: . . . Pants on Fire
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.” . . . “Sen. Obama didn’t fill out these state Senate questionnaires – a staffer did – and there are several answers that didn’t reflect his views then or now,” Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for Obama’s campaign, said in an e-mailed statement.
But, as I reported back in January, this isn’t the first time Obama has used this lie, once he was caught making controversial statements and wanted to get out of it:
When Obama first ran for the U.S. Senate, he gave militant responses to the Chicago Jewish News about Israel. Obama denounced Israel’s fence–which he called a “wall” and “barrier to peace”–to keep out terrorists and favored working with Yasser Arafat. When members of the Chicago Jewish community circulated his responses, Obama said that the answers were not his positions, but the work of a low-level intern. He submitted new answers. But that was a lie, the insider says. In fact, they were the work of Obama’s Policy Director, Audra Wilson.
Obama then asked to fill out another questionnaire from the Chicago Jewish News and changed his answers to please Jewish voters, even though his original answers were his real views.
And the Politico found that he is lying now, as he was with the Chicago Jewish News:
But a Politico examination determined that Obama was actually interviewed about the issues on the questionnaire by the liberal Chicago nonprofit group that issued it. And it found that Obama â€” the day after sitting for the interview – filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes added to one answer.
Barack Hussein Obama. He was a liar then. He’s a liar now. And he always pawns off his lies and misdeeds on his staff. Don’t look for any of this to change in the White House.

Rejection of Obama’s Biblical Backing of Same-Sex Unions

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) told Cybercast News Service on Wednesday that Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama (D-Ill.) can’t justify support for same-sex unions by referencing Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount.“Christian tradition and Scripture speak with one voice on this subject wherever it’s been raised,” Sessions said. “It does not accept same-sex unions.”
Obama is not unique in trying to interpret the Bible to fit with his world view, he said.
“Some people want to change that these days – but for 2000 years and plain reading of the Scripture, I think that has not been the position of the church” on same-sex unions, Sessions said. Obama “is talking about changing, a redefining of a Christian tradition.”
Cybercast News Service reported earlier this week that Obama told a college crowd while campaigning in Ohio on Sunday that his support for legalizing same-sex unions is rooted in his Christian faith.
“I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state,” Obama said. “If people find that controversial, then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.”
