Barack Obama: The Plot Thickens...

on Monday, March 31, 2008

The Messiah's once perfect campaign is slowly decomposing into a tangled web of lies, falsehoods, and atrocities.

Towards the end of last year, Politico detailed a story about a general assembly questionnaire filled out by Barack Obama, in which he took a hard-lined liberal stance on most, if not all, issues. The questionnaire haunted Obama as it portrayed him as excessively liberal. In his defense, Barack Obama's campaign announced that Barack himself had not filled out the questionnaire and said that he had "never seen or approved" the questionnaire. In fact, they claimed that it was filled out by somebody who "unintentionally mischaracterized his position.”

Well, well, well. Turns out the questionnaire that Barack never saw or approved... has his handwriting all over it!

And, as Captain Ed points out to anybody willing to read the questionnaire, Obama's handwritten positions include:

  • Being opposed to parental notification on abortions. He amended this to say that he might possibly support it for 12- or 13-year-olds, but no older. So to all you 14-year-old readers out there, relax, you don't even have to tell your parents about your abortion when Barack becomes king president
  • He flatly opposed the death penalty, a position he denied ever having.
  • He supported bans on the sale, possession, and manufacture of guns, again a position he denied ever taking.

    And the lies don't end there. At a recent speech in Selma, AL, Obama claimed that the Kennedy administration paid for his Kenyan father's travel to the U.S. on a student scholarship. Barack, trying to hype up his civil rights devotion, said that this act was responsible for his “very existence”.

    Sounds like a fairy-tale ending... too bad it's not true.

    As the Washington Post points out:

    Contrary to Obama’s claims in speeches in January at American University and in Selma last year, the Kennedy family did not provide the funding for a September 1959 airlift of 81 Kenyan students to the United States that included Obama’s father. According to historical records and interviews with participants, the Kennedys were first approached for support for the program nearly a year later, in July 1960.
    Obama continued in his filthy little lie when he added this:

    Obama said: “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Junior was born.”
    Right. Except for the fact that the first march in Selma didn't occur until March 7, 1965 - a full four years AFTER Barack was born. How could the Selma marches be the reason for your birth when you were 4-years-old when they happened, Mr. Obama?

    So how does the media treat all this? Answer: They ignore it as usual. The media's hypocritical treatment of Obama's fabrications in comparison to how they treated Mitt Romney is summed up nicely by John Stephenson:

    When Mitt Romney stated that he saw his father march with Martin Luther King Jr., there was wall to wall media coverage reporting how he had to start backpeddaling [sic]. Even after witnesses came forward claiming they had seen his father march with him, the media story of Mitt fabricating the story still persists.
    Well said.

    But lies aren't the only things filling Barry O's mouth. Two days ago he had this to say, which gives us further insight into his views on abortion:

    Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.
    PUNISHED with a baby?!?! You disgust me, Barack.

    I have an 18-month-old daughter. Never in my life have I ever thought of her as a punishment. Shame on you, Barack, for using such language.

    And another thing Barry, if your daughters want to be promiscuous, having a baby in not a punishment - it is cause and effect. It is a consequence of an action. Don't go out drinking all night, then get mad when you get a hangover. Don't bang your head against a wall, then get mad once you get a headache. Don't do the act that causes pregnancy, then get mad when you, in fact, get pregnant.

    This whole pro-choice argument is absurd. It's not your body you're aborting, it's someone else's. I don't want to hear this "a woman should be able to choose" argument anymore. You made your choice when you took off your pants. Accept responsibility.

    And as for you, Barack, aren't you glad your parents didn't abort you.
