There was a time when the MSM made sure that Obama avoided any unpleasant glare due to the facts. But that was then…and this is now.
Apparently, the MSM is smarting for their non-coverage of the now famously guilty John Edwards and mistress–and have now decided to actually shed some light on Obama.
The NY Times does just that in their article, Obama’s 2003 Stand on Abortion Draws New Criticism in 2008. Here’s a brief excerpt…
Mr. Obama’s critics to accuse him of playing fast and loose with the truth when he says he “would have been completely in, fully in support of the federal bill that everybody supported” if it had been offered at the state level.
“I don’t know whether he is lying or whether he forgot, but with his words, he is condemning himself, “ said Jill Stanek, a nurse in the Chicago area who was a main proponent of the federal measure and writes an anti-abortion blog. “He voted one way and then covered it up, and he has to explain that, not just to me, but to the American people.”
We had a post last week, Obama–Abortion Radical?, that presented a video embed and some powerful information from Jill Stanek’s website that clarifies this entire issue beyond that point from which Obama’s obfuscation and nuance can rescue him.
