Obama Continues Airing False Ad

Posted By Rob Bluey On October 29, 2008 @ 1:42 pm In Scribe | Comments Disabled

Barack Obama’s campaign continues to air a false and inaccurate TV ad [1] that misrepresents the views of The Heritage Foundation. After formally requesting yesterday that the campaign pull its ad touting the candidate’s tax plan, neither Heritage nor our attorney have heard from Obama’s campaign (although a campaign spokesman issued a wholly unsatisfactory response [2]).

Heritage policy analyst Rea Hederman, who never said what Obama attributes to him in the ad, maintains that Obama’s campaign is playing fast and loose with the facts [3] in this new video.
