Obama campaign admits he misrepresented Born Alive vote

| 5 Comments

The controversy at hand concerns Barack Obama's record and whether or the candidate has been truthful concerning his vote against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, an Illinois state bill aimed at stopping infanticide following a botched abortion.

Obama on Saturday rejected criticism that he opposed the bill as an Illinois state senator:

Well and because they have not been telling the truth. And I hate to say that people are lying, but here's a situation where folks are lying.

[snip]

So for people to suggest that I and the Illinois medical society, so Illinois doctors were somehow in favor of withholding life saving support from an infant born alive is ridiculous. It defies commonsense and it defies imagination and for people to keep on pushing this is offensive and it's an example of the kind of politics that we have to get beyond.

The National Right to Life quickly responded by challenging Obama "to either declare the two 2003 legislative documents to be forgeries and call for an official investigation, or else apologize for his four years of misrepresentation on the issue of babies who are born alive during abortions - and for calling us liars."

Previously, the NRLC posted documents which prove Obama misrepresented his record (more here).

As noted by Jill Stanek and reported by the Sun, the Obama campaign yesterday admitted that the candidate misrepresented his Born Alive vote. Jill comments,

Little did Obama know his own words would so quickly condemn him. He admitted what he did "defies common sense and it defies imagination." In fact, it was heinous.
Update: HotAir responds to Obama's infanticide lie: The answer now from the Obama campaign is clear. Obama facilitated evil in order to protect abortion on demand, which was never threatened by S.1082 in the first place.

CNN & MSNBC's Saint Obama seems to grow smaller the closer we approach him and find out the truth that cable news pundits can't seem to find or report to voters...Obama has lost his small 3pt lead in the national polls his position in the electoral count has deteriorated. Obama has dropped significantly and it's hard to locate a single instance in a battleground state where Obama has improved in all recent polling data. Whether it was vacation, Putin's aggressive invasion of Georgia, or some other factor like voters beginning to see that cable news pundits like CNN & MSNBC have not been reporting fair, balanced or in some cases truthful information on both candidates, voters have begun to research Obama on their own and the American TV viewer is learning daily on the lack of true journalism from these cable news pundits.... Proof of that is Obama starts the week leading to convention in his weakest position thus far in the general election. The bad news - obviously - is that Obama appears to have reaped no initial benefit from the tens of millions of dollars he's spent on advertising over the last two and a half months. All of which strikes me as a bit of a problem at this point. While the cool, composed, no-drama Obama may appear presidential to some it also makes him detached from the many and multiplying crises around him. These are not the most soothing of times for Americans. The economy is shaky. Unemployment is up. Growth is down. Oil prices have hit the roof just as home prices have crashed through the floor. Detroit is facing a full-fledged meltdown. We are still embroiled in two wars, neither of which offers much hope for a happy ending. Al Qaeda is running wild in western Pakistan. And now, like some bad acid flashback, Russia is acting like it wants to restart the Cold War. Obama should try to alter his basic nature or pretend to care deeply about these issues that are not important to him. Obama needs to recognize that unrelenting cool may not be what voters are longing for this election.

To ALL the obamakins and of course the bias CNN & MSNBC I have one simple request. Please spare me the hope and the change bull, and the Bush's third term, McSame etc... Please just tell American voters what qualifies Barack Obama to run this country. What qualifies him to oversee our $14 trillion economy, the largest on earth? What qualifies him to be commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces in a time of war? Please just give me one single solid qualification. And race does not qualify!! That would be one more than anyone including cable media has provided to date. WE ALL HAVE GROWN EXTREMLY TIRED OF MEDIA SAINTED OBAMA....

Obama keeps reaching back to Chicago political past for policy advisers, and pulling one despicable, vile, and even evil "rabbit" after another out of his hat.
The list of Barack Obama's radical associations is long and it keeps getting longer. Some are now well-known, but many are not. They need to be.

23 years at TUCC with Jeremiah Wright and James Meeks. racist sermons on Youtube.
He chose the most radical church in the country; chose to immerse himself in hard-core ideological radicalism. Never before has this country considered such a radical leftist for its chief executive.

Michael Pfleger and his hateful and race-hating ramblings, Obama met while carrying out his own radical social activism as community organizer at ACORN, (radical organization)

Penny Pritzker, heads Obama camp National Finance Committee was president of Superior Bank - massively failed and she literally bought her way out of jail paying $460 MILLION fine; was the very epicenter of subprime loan scandal" that would come to eat this nation's financial system alive.

Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson, former head of Obama's vice presidential selection committee, discovered he benefited from sweetheart loans from subprime king Countrywide.

Tony Rezko certainly and his federal indictments and financial dealing with Obamas of course and William Ayers, US terrorist bomber, Obama-co-lecturer, fellow board member, neighbor, and friend.

Communist Frank Marshall Davis, obama mentor; Saul Alinsky and Gerald Kellman (Kellman's Woods Fund is how Obama hooked up with terrorist William Ayers)

Chicago lawyer Mazen Asbahi, appointed as Obama camp national coord for Muslim n affairs also stepped down after news about his stint on the fund's board - which includes fundamentalist imam - prompting The Wall Street Journal inquiries about relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and his long personal relationship with Hamas Jamal Said.

Obama desperately needs voters to forget hes the son of a Muslim father who served an incredibly brutal and corrupt Kenyan government; to forget he attended a madrassa in Indonesia and practiced Islam; forget that he campaigned in Kenya on behalf of Raila Odinga, who relied upon chaos, corruption, and violence in his campaign; numerous associations with radical Muslims; forget the photographs of Obama in traditional Muslim clothes, hanging with Muslim radicals such as Mazen Asbahi and anti-Semite Rashid Khalidi.

The mainstream media has frankly put the security of our great country at risk with an Obama coronation media like CNN & MSNBC is the only way Obama managed to steal the Dem nom. It's extremely concerning that so many Americans could care less about who their candidate really is?? simply amazing and frankly scarey.

Obama and the Born-Alive Act

Six years ago, Congress passed the "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act,"
making it illegal to kill a child who is fully born during an attempted
abortion. The bill passed without a single opposing vote in either
house, and was signed into law by President Bush on August 5, 2002. When
he was a state senator at that same time, Barack Obama opposed a state
version of the bill in Illinois. His explanation for the vote since then
has been that the state version did not include a so-called "neutrality
clause" which says explicitly that the bill is not meant to influence
the legal standing of a fetus before birth one way or another. The
federal law contained such a clause, and the state law, Obama has long
insisted, did not. As recently as June 30, the Obama campaign made that
case to answer the charge (in that case from Bill Bennett) that Obama
had opposed the Born-Alive Act.

But now, the National Right to Life Committee has uncovered proof that
Obama in fact voted in committee against even the version of the
Illinois Born-Alive Act that did include exactly the same "neutrality
clause" as the federal bill. On March 12, 2003, when the bill was being
debated, an amendment was added that inserted the neutrality language of
the federal bill verbatim into the Illinois bill. Obama voted for the
amendment (that's the vote on the left-hand column on this committee
vote record), and then voted against the amended bill (that's the vote
on the right on the same document). All the Democrats on the committee
(which Obama chaired) followed his lead, and the bill was defeated.

This was, again, legislation that in the same form had by then passed
unanimously at the federal level. Even NARAL did not oppose it.
Apparently Barack Obama did, and his old explanation for doing so seems
at odds with the facts.

Obama lied, babies died, pass it on!!

Obama: Well and because they have not been telling the truth. And I hate to say that people are lying, but here's a situation where folks are lying. I have said repeatedly that I would have been completely in, fully in support of the federal bill that everybody supported - which was to say --that you should provide assistance to any infant that was born - even if it was as a consequence of an induced abortion. That was not the bill that was presented at the state level. What that bill also was doing was trying to undermine Roe vs. Wade. ***By the way, we also had a bill, a law already in place in Illinois that insured life saving treatment was given to infants.***

So for people to suggest that I and the Illinois medical society, so Illinois doctors were somehow in favor of withholding life saving support from an infant born alive is ridiculous. It defies commonsense and it defies imagination and for people to keep on pushing this is offensive and it's an example of the kind of politics that we have to get beyond. It's one thing for people to disagree with me about the issue of choice, it's another thing for people to out and out misrepresent my positions repeatedly, even after they know that they're wrong. And that's what's been happening.

Loses credibility by snipping out this important fact.

By the way, we also had a bill, a law already in place in Illinois that insured life saving treatment was given to infants.
