Drivers licenses for illegal immigrants & other positions Obama held during the primary election.

Posted by iusbvision on October 13, 2008

It seems like everyone has stopped paying attention to the positions and statements that Obama made in the primary election. In most elections the elite media would go back and fact-check everyone, compare speeches and do all of the things that you would expect a wealthy press corps to do. Those days seem long gone.

Here are the issues, statements, reversals and fibs from the primary campaign with a couple of exceptions such as the ACORN lie and the Ayers lies which are more recent. I wish I could say this list is comprehensive, but it is likely we missed some.

How he was for immediate pull out of Iraq, how he said in the “youtube debate” that he would meet at the presidential level with nuts around the world without precognition, how he promised to renegotiate NAFTA while sending his foreign policy consultant to Canada to tell them he wasn’t serious and it was just campaign rhetoric, the reversals on gun control, campaign financing, more campaign financing, what happened to the “self reliance tour’, negative attacks, more NAFTA & faith based programs reversals, union intimidation, sending surrogates to attack Cindy McCain while he says that the wives are off limits, campaign launches multi-pronged attack against McCain’s military service over July 4th weekendwhile Obama says that no one should attack military service, sexist attacks, more sexist attackshow he lets his own brother live in a tiny shack on $12 a year, reversals, the New York Times chastises Obama for even MORE reversals & accused of being a man with ‘seasonal principles’, equal pay for women hypocrisy, more pay for women hypocrisy, lying abouit oil leases and drilling, Obama didn’t stand up against his own party,  reversed himself on the terror surveillance program, Obama stated his support for higher gas prices, flip flopped twice on offshore drilling in 48 hours, Iraq timetable, purging his lies about the surge from his web site,  taking money from PACS and special interests, taking money from the mortgage industry, lying about clean coal technology, Obama’s lie that he had nothing to do with ACORN, abusing law enforcemnet to stop free speech, more taking money from Wall Street Interests (even though Obama promised not to take money from these people, he has taken THE MOST money from these people).

Another important issue that came up in the primary debates is the issue of drivers licenses for illegal aliens. Obama was clear in his support for it and Hillary was sympathetic to at at first but finally concluded that it was a bad idea; with motor voter and other laws today, the risk of vote fraud and other security problems arise when illegals are given a drivers license.

This is what Dick Morris had to say about it.

Did you know 13 of the 19 hijackers had obtained valid driver’s licenses? Armed with these licenses, eight of the hijackers even registered to vote.

Obama strongly supports giving illegal aliens in America driver’s licenses. He said as much during two Democratic debates earlier this year.

The head of Homeland Security said such thinking was dangerous for national security. Even Hillary Clinton backed away from Obama’s radical driver’s license plan.

Obama has been a major proponent of driver’s licenses for illegals since his days as an Illinois state senator.

 This is an issue that the McCain Campaign should bring back up.
