Obama pivots from Romney-Bain attacks with new television ads (raised by grandparents)
The Hill ^ | May 23, 2012 | Justin Sink

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, it’s 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.”

Implying, correctly if subtly, that his natural parents were a couple of flakes.

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.)

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...

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.
http://thehill.com/video/campaign/229051-obama-debuts-new-television-ads-pivoting-from-bain-attacks

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.

Maybe someone could repost or link to those photos I don't know how to post photos.

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).

I remember his grandma. He said she’s “a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”

I’ve sent everything I have to Orly Taitz via UPS Next Day Air. Alec confirmed delivery about a week later.

Hopefully, Orly will charge her opponent, Sen. Diane Feinstein of the Sen Intelligence Comm, with conspiracy.
