Posted on 08/19/2008 10:45:11 AM PDT by presidio9
When it comes to his abortion record in Illinois, Senator Obama is taking flak from all sides.
First, Senator Clinton accused him of lacking political backbone in voting "present" on a bill that, according to abortion rights advocates, undermined the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade. Now abortion foes are targeting him from the right over the same question: They say his opposition to legislation aimed at protecting infants born alive after a botched abortion demonstrates his extremism on the flash point social issue.
The conservative attacks have intensified in recent days, with opponents of legalized abortion sending out missives against Mr. Obama and a YouTube video circulating that casts his position on abortion as more extreme than even the most stalwart supporters of a woman's right to choose, including Mrs. Clinton and Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts.
The presumptive Democratic nominee responded sharply in an interview Saturday night with the Christian Broadcast Network, saying anti-abortion groups were "lying" about his record.
"They have not been telling the truth," Mr. Obama said. "And I hate to say that people are lying, but here's a situation where folks are lying."
He added that it was "ridiculous"

Mr. Obama is an abortionist, pure and simple. That’s all you need to know.
Yep, folks are lying, but what Obama did not say was the folks who are lying are Obama and his campaign.
“They have not been telling the truth,” Mr. Obama said. “And I hate to say that people are lying, but here’s a situation where folks are lying.”
He added that it was “ridiculous”
I need to fix that....
“He has not been telling the truth,” They all said. “And we hate to say that he is lying, but here’s a situation where Mr. Obama is lying.”
They added that he was “ridiculous”.
Now then, that’s more like it!
I wish Obama would state specifically what the “lies” are regarding his pro-abortion position.
Mr Obama, please tell us..
..When does a baby stop being a fetus and become a “punishment”?
when it runs for POTUS and throws its grandmother under “the bus”
Hussein, you are despicable. You're the one that is lying about your abortion position.
BHO is evil.
No one is more deserving. No one.

When you lie, and then lie some more, and then lie again, the chickens WILL “come home to roost” some day; and the liar should NOT be surprised when said chickens defecate on him.
Poor Obie just can’t get a break. LOL
I’ve heard this excuse:
“just because he voted against a law requiring care be given to born alive babies, doesn’t mean he favors killing them”
I wish Obama would state specifically what the lies are regarding his pro-abortion position.
Not likely ... BO was at a VFW convention in Orlando today ,, called McCains allegations about BO’s war positions lies ,, funny thing though ,, like this BAIPA issue he can never seem to give even a shred of evidence to the contrary.
He who tries to make everyone happy, makes everyone mad.
If Confucius didn’t say it, he should have.
Or was it: “Man who stands in front of bus get tired; man who stand behind bus get exhausted.”
He added that it was “ridiculous”.....
You’re ridiculous, BOZO!
only 2 words.....BABY KILLER
Wow. Mighty ballsey for B. Hussein to tell a VFW crowd that McCain was a liar. Wonder how that went over.
It’s OK, McCain will help him out by selecting a pro choise VP.
Of course. Those babies are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves.
