Hold the phone. Whoever talked to the New York Sun from the Obama campaign, as reported in yesterday’s blog, apparently didn’t check with headquarters. It appeared in the Sun website posting that Obama was conceding that the Illinois Born Alive bill he voted against was virtually identical to the federal legislation he now says he supports.
According to LifeNews.com, in the latest release from his campaign on the Born Alive issue, Obama continues to attack those who exposed his lie and is playing the victim card, using his family as backdrop.
“The recent attacks on Senator Obama that allege he would allow babies born alive to die are outrageous lies,” the campaign said. “The suggestion that Obama — the proud father of two little girls — and others who opposed these bills supported infanticide is deeply offensive and insulting.”
Despite the unassailable Illinois documents uncovered by the National Right to Life Committee proving that Obama voted for the federal clarifying language before voting against the amended bill, Obama continues to state that he voted against the Illinois bill because it wasn’t like the federal legislation. In other words — pretend the documents don’t exist and see if he can get away with it. Or, in the words of David Brody who conducted the now famous interview with Obama over the weekend, “they won’t concede the point that Senator Obama is pulling a fast one on the American public.”
