The real Obama

Very interesting story in The Politico today which details just how radical Barack Obama really is. For example,

Consider the question of whether minors should be required to get parental consent — or at least notify their parents — before having abortion.

The first version of Obama’s questionnaire responds with a simple “No.”

Both versions of the 1996 questionnaires provide answers his presidential campaign disavows to questions about whether Obama supports capital punishment and state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.”

He responded simply “No” and “Yes,” respectively, to those questions on both questionnaires.

There's just one problem: Obama insists he didn't see the questionnaire --

Late last year, in response to a Politico story about Obama’s answers to the original questionnaire, his aides said he “never saw or approved” the questionnaire.

They asserted the responses were filled out by a campaign aide who “unintentionally mischaracterize[d] his position.”

But The Politico is having none of it:

But a Politico examination determined that Obama was actually interviewed about the issues on the questionnaire by the liberal Chicago nonprofit group that issued it. And it found that Obama — the day after sitting for the interview — filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes added to one answer.

Well, this wasn't exactly accurate. And there's his claims about Jeremiah Wright which strain believability. And this story confirms at least one of the Barack's answers on the questionnaire.

Some in the blogosphere have deemed as bunk Ron Paul's explanation when he claimed a ghost writer was responsible for some racist articles that appeared in a newsletter -- with Paul's name in the title. Are Obama's similar excuses about this questionnaire "bunk" as well?
