Obama Asks Illegals To Vote For Him For A Change

Obama's latest ad is focused toward spanish-speaking people of Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona is asking illegals to now vote for him. You can see the ad and further context here.

"They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out."

"They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much," the ad continues. "John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families."

"Don't forget that John McCain abandoned us rather than confront the leaders of the Republican Party. Many of us were born here, and others came to work and achieve a better life for their families -- not to commit crimes or drain the system like many of John McCain's friends claim. Let's not be fooled by political tricks from John McCain and the Republicans. Vote so they respect us. Vote for a change."

Amazingly enough, the Fact Check Desk of ABC News tears this ad to shreds.

There are some real factual problems with this ad, which is titled “Dos Caras,” or two faces.

First of all, tying Sen. McCain – especially on the issue of immigration reform – to Limbaugh is unfair.
Second, the quotes of Limbaugh’s are out of context.
The second quote is totally unfair.

The greater implication the ad makes, however, is that McCain is no friend to Latinos at all, beyond issues of funding the DREAM [Ed: funding that would have as part provided federal scholarships to children of illegals] act or how NCLB [No Child Left Behind] money is distributed. By linking McCain to Limbaugh’s quotes, twisting Limbaugh’s quotes, and tying McCain to more extremist anti-immigration voices, the Obama campaign has crossed a line into misleading the viewers of its new TV ad. In Spanish, the word is erróneo.

I just find the whole issue of pandering to and giving different messages to different groups to be abhorrent. McCain, while not a Socialist Marxist like Obama, also has his issues. He panders to La Raza telling them that he will bring up his amnesty program again. But then tells America that he learned his lesson and won't bring it up any time soon. But, at least McCain knows that these illegals have to be given citizenship before they can vote for him. Obama, like the rest of the Democraps, will take any vote whether illegal, bought, or foreign.
