Obama doesn't just lie about John McCain.
In an ad trying to scare people into voting for him, Obama mislead voters about the Corning company.
from the story "Corning Inc. Blasts Obama":
CORNING - A campaign ad by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has drawn fire from Corning Incorporated over its reference to the 2004 closure of a Corning glass plant.
Now, Obama was attacking Corning as a way to attack Bush for "allowing" jobs to go overseas, and then to blame McCain because he's an old white guy just like McCain and Obama knows that all white people are the same (even his grandmother, who he called a "typical white person").
"Corning shuts down its plant in Pennsylvania, hundreds lose their jobs, then the workers are rehired to disassemble the plant and ship the equipment to China. "
A perfect sob story for the whining Democratic Presidential wannabee.
Except it's not true:
However, Corning Inc. spokeswoman Kelli Hopp-Michlosky said those jobs were never sent to China. She said the plant closed because it made cathode ray tubes, and since the company no longer makes CRTs, those jobs were not needed elsewhere.
But Obama wouldn't let truth get in the way, making a misleading campaign ad falsely attacking McCain, or the hard-working companies that make this country go.
"We have been in touch with the Obama campaign on this expressing our displeasure and presenting all the facts so they see how misleading the ad appears. We will continue to speak with them on this," Mopp-Michlosky said.
Good luck on that. Obama doesn't have to apologize, he's the One. Media bows to his every whim. The media will help.
The Ad is about McCain shipping our jobs overseas. Using as an example a company that did NOT ship jobs overseas is telling in two ways. First, it shows that Obama won't let truth get in the way of a good yarn. Second, one wonders why the Obama campaign couldn't find a good example of a company that actually shipped jobs overseas. Why use a fake claim?
