Is Barack Obama a middle of the road, moderate, politician who can bring the two Americas of John Edwards together? In a word, no! However BO plays one on the campaign trail. Kenneth P. Vogel, Polito ,
During his first run for elected office, Barack Obama played a greater role than his aides now acknowledge in crafting liberal stands on gun control, the death penalty and abortion- positions that appear at odds with the more moderate image he’s projected during his presidential campaign.
The evidence comes from an amended version of an Illinois voter group’s detailed questionnaire, filed under his name during his 1996 bid for a state Senate seat
It is now apparent why BO is taking such pains to make his records from the Illinois legislature unavailable.
It is not merely that BO is morally unfit to hold any office of public trust. BO’s level of dishonesty is Clintonian in magnitute.
