UPDATE: 03-03-08 IT'S TRUE -- CANADA & CAMPAIGN LIED! See the blog entry "OBAMA IS A TRUE DEMOCRAT: ASSOCIATED WITH LYING AND CORRUPTION?"
UPDATE: 02-29-08 "Canada Says TV Story on Obama NAFTA Deception is 'Untrue'"
"(CNSNews.com) - A Wednesday evening report on a Canadian television network that said a 'senior member' of Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign had called Canada's ambassador to the U.S. to advise him that Canada should not take seriously Obama's attacks on the North American Free Trade Agreement was 'untrue,' the Canadian government told Cybercast News Service."
"'I can categorically say that no one has contacted our embassy or our ambassador,' said Canadian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andre Lemay. 'None of our officials at the embassy discussed anything with the runners up in the presidential campaign. We realize that one of the Canadian networks mentioned yesterday that such a call had been made. The report is untrue.'"
"When asked whether Ambassador Michael Wilson, the Canadian emissary to the U.S., had received a call from anyone in the Obama campaign, Lemay said he had not."

We almost expect Hillary Clinton to lie, but what about Barack Obama?
It is one thing to believe that everything that Hillary Clinton may say has been spin-tested and calculated to produce a political reaction.
But Barack Obama, who professes his desire to clean up the existing system and to restore honor to the Office of the Presidency -- has apparently been "outed" as a conventional duplicitous politician.
If this story is true - OBAMA IS GUILTY OF CONSPIRING WITH A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO LIE TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC!

Obama Deceived Debate Viewers on NAFTA Plans, Canada TV Says
"Did Sen. Barack Obama say one thing privately to the Canadian government about NAFTA -- and something very different during Tuesday night's debate? The answer is yes, according to CTV, a Canadian television network."
"The network reported Wednesday night that a 'senior member' of the Obama campaign called Michael Wilson, the Canadian ambassador to the U.S., 'within the last month,' warning Wilson that Obama would 'take some heavy swings' at the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as part of his campaign.
The Canadian Government apparently believed it...
"The Obama insider reportedly told the ambassador, 'Don't worry -- it's just campaign rhetoric, it's not serious,' CTV reported.
CTV reported that the Obama campaign's message to Wilson was taken as 'completely authentic' by the Canadian government."
"At Tuesday's debate in Cleveland, Sen. Hillary Clinton said that as president she would opt out of the North American Free Trade Agreement in six months, if she couldn't renegotiate the agreement with Canada and Mexico to her satisfaction. "
Barack's position: Is this a lie?
Barack's position: Is this a lie?
"I will make sure we renegotiate," Obama agreed. "I think we should use the hammer of a potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and environmental standards that are enforced."
"Democrats count labor unions among their biggest supporters, and labor unions blame NAFTA for eliminating jobs."
On Wednesday, Canada's Trade Minister David Emerson said NAFTA is at risk, given Clinton and Obama's threats to end it, the Bloomberg News Service reported.
It's not a matter of protectionism... it's a matter of sovereignty!
"The rhetoric of protectionism has been creeping up and getting more strident," Emerson was quoted as saying. "It's not just the heat of the presidential campaign," he said -- there's a grassroots movement against it as well."
"Obama has not directly responded to questions about his differing private and public stands on NAFTA. A spokesperson for the Obama campaign told CTV that the Obama staffer's conversation with Ambassador Wilson sounded implausible. But the spokesperson did not deny that the Obama campaign had contacted Wilson.
"Senator Obama does not make promises he doesn't intend to keep," the spokesperson told CTV."
See what CTV had to say...
What else is Barack Obama not telling us? And can we afford to discover the truth after he is nominated?
What can YOU do?
If Obama is just another democrat machine politician who has already proved he deals with slime-ball donors, he should be eliminated as a viable candidate!
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.
