"he passed a Law"...to move people from welfare to work.
Above is Obama's second General Election Ad being ran now in 18 States -
Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Just as in Obama's first General Elections Ad regarding the 'wounded troops' Public Law that he said he passed - that he never even bothered to Vote for at all - Obama has "pulled a Barry" in this AD too, folks. In fact this same welfare reform Law that he touts in this second AD is mentioned in his First Ad too.
The dawgone News and many many write ups say he flip floped on this welfare reform issue and switched from being For it now - when he used to be against it.
They quickly say he is courting the conservative base and has moved to the 'center' justifying his switched position in this AD.
Huh?? Not so quick. Wait. Back up.
This AD clearly states that "he passed a Law"...to move people from welfare to work.
He used to be against it- but he Passed it?
He didn't "switch" - he Lied again. And he just keeps getting away with it. Thanks in large part to Media surrogates.
At Least Fox got the gist of it right...which left other questions in it's wording.
Barack Obama is championing welfare reform in his new television ad titled "Dignity." The ad says that Obama "passed a law to move people from welfare to work — slashed the rolls by 80 percent."
But the television spot fails to mention that Obama resisted the very welfare reform bill that led to the reduction in the caseload. Back in 1996, President Bill Clinton signed a ...
(Republican crafted federal welfare reform Bill) in an effort to make welfare what he called "a second chance, not a way of life."
But then-Illinois state Senator Obama told the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper that year that Mr. Clinton's stance on welfare was "disturbing."
And on May 31, 1997 Obama said on the floor of the Illinois state Senate, "I probably would not have supported the federal legislation."
...Obama:..."I probably would not have supported the... "??
Barry, it doesn't even sound like you were "present".
Well, now wait a darn second here - the Bill was signed in 1996 and, hum, uh, Obama was not even elected to the Illinois State Senate until 1997.
Let me get out my ole typical MS calculator here - and
Nope, it sure doesn't seem to add up that you 'passed' that there referenced welfare reform law to me,
It does appear that Obama's actual contribution to a differently worded tack-on welfare Bill, later on in '97, was for Determining Which Felons Would Be Eligible For Welfare, And Under What Conditions.
Clever to later add on some rider Pork, to a Bill he would not have supported, and then lay claim to the whole "disturbing" package as an 'achievemnet' of his own.
Exagerated rhetoric, or Con-ing America?
One thing we can say for certain is if Obama had had his way, the 1996 Bill would NOT have been Passed, thus his second General Election Ad, is just more ObamaBunk.
How do you sprrrell convoluted, pathological confabulator?
Dignity - this guy doesn't have a clue what it means.
