by alegre, Wed Apr 16, 2008 at 06:37:44 PM EDT
I just love Fact Hub - it's a great way to keep up with the campaign and as far as tongiht's debate gots, they've alreayd got a couple things up. Take a look at something they caught regarding a bit of a flub-up of Obama's during the debate tonight...
Sen. Obama's Handwriting Appears On Questionnaire Supporting Total Handgun Ban
Tonight, Sen. Obama flatly denied his handwriting appeared on a questionnaire where he expressed his support for a total gun ban:Gibson: But do you still favor the registration of guns? Do still you favor the licensing of guns? And in 1996, you - your campaign issued a questionnaire. And your writing was on the questionnaire that said you favored a ban on handguns.
Obama: No, my writing was not on that particular questionnaire, Charlie. As I've said, I have never favored an all-out ban on hand handguns
That's not the case, you can see his handwriting on the very questionnaire here:
The entire questionnaire is available here.
More on this story, including the Obama campaign's initial denial he ever saw the questionnaire, here.
Oops! He got another one wrong guys. I suppose now he's going to issue another one of his "what I meant to say was..." memos or deliver one of his famous speeches to undo the damange caused by getting caught out in this blunder, eh?
As for tonight's debate, a friend just sent me the following email about how what they thought of Obama's answers to some of the quesitons tonight...
Ha@ He didn't fill out the questionaire, he was absent when Wright went wild, it's okay for him to hang out with Ayers because Clinton pardoned other people, he only wears a flag pin when a veteran gives him one, he's for a windfall profits tax on oil companies but he voted for Cheney's energy bill, he doesn't take money from federally registered lobbyists but he takes the money they bundle, etc.
