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:

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.
