Skip to comments.Obama pivots from Romney-Bain attacks with new television ads (raised by grandparents)
Posted on 05/23/2012 7:50:58 AM PDT by Seizethecarp
In the first of the new spots, which plays off the coming Memorial Day holiday, the president champions his record on expanding veterans' benefits. As the president speaks, on-screen text lists accomplishments like a program that offers tax credits to hire veterans and an expansion of healthcare and education benefits.
The second ad is tailored towards senior citizens, and says the president has made progress fighting Medicare "scam artists" and promises "a commitment toward Medicare as personal as yours."
To you and your loved ones, Medicare is personal. And to a president raised by his grandparents, its personal too, a female narrator says as the camera pans over a picture of Obama with his grandparents. President Obama is leading the most successful crackdown on healthcare fraud ever.

Typical white people...
Implying, correctly if subtly, that his natural parents were a couple of flakes.
Nothingnew to say
Before this election is over he is going ruin every BS detector there is.
“...raised by his affluent Communist grandparents...” There, it’s complete now.
Yes. And how will mentioning his grandparents do anything other than remind folks his mother was lily white all over.
yes, lil’ barry roamed the red light district of Honolulu with his Gramps and smothered his Toot with love
what a tragedy her cancer treatments failed to extend her life until the day after his election
Didn’t BHO say just last week, he was raised by a single mom on food stamps?
The guy really needs to keep his lies straight.
Obama’s grandparents were appointed his guardian after Catholic Social Services of Connecticut was named his legal custodian.
From 10 YO to 18, Obama was in the Federal Fostercare System
Very true. Obama lies about everything. I recall that although his mother was white, his purported father was 80% Arab and his grandparents were white, instead of reporting his race as "Mixed" on the census form, he checked "Negro". (Of course he and everyone else knows he wouldn't be elected to any office if he was viewed -- literally and figuratively -- as anything other than "black" by the Left in this country.)
is that why he has a Connecticut SS# then?
The grandparents who named his red-diaper mother Stanley?
I thought that Soerto in Indonesia raised him?
Zer0 for CIA support of US Commies.
This ad reminds me, after he was raised by grandparents, who sent him to college? Did he perhaps pawn himself off to others as a foreign student to get an advantage on his peers? How come he has so many SSNs? Did the grandparents do that?
Oh, yeah, this is a great campaign to open up...
nobama long ago ruined my Gaydar by bending the needle...now my BS Meter is going quickly as well.
“Obamas grandparents were appointed his guardian after Catholic Social Services of Connecticut was named his legal custodian.

Do you have a link for further information on this? I follow all this pretty closely and have never heard of this. At all.
I couldn’t believe it, when I went to the link at The Hill, I saw that Obama was using that photoshopped picture of him and grandparents in a video ad.
Way back Phil Dragoo posted funny photo shops of his own showing how the picture is more believable if you crop Obama out of it.
The main problem with the photo is that grandpa’s arm and hand are added as his arm from the elbow to his hand can’t possibly be that LONG unless he is elastic man.
Also in pic grandparents faces are all washed out, overexposed, too much sunlight. Yet Obama, (supposedly) in the middle, has none of this.
Just try and recreate that scene yourself without raising your shoulder (in photo G Pa isn't raising his).
