Candor Counts

By Hugh Hewitt

In the days since Rick Warren sat down with the major party presidential candidates, it has become obvious that Senator McCain helped himself a great deal with values voters, but also that Senator Obama hurt himself with the same group--and not just because of his answers, but because of the subsequent revelations that he was less than candid on a number of issues.

Senator Obama stated that he worked across party lines with John McCain--when in fact he didn't. He said he wasn't in favor of same-sex marriage--when he is in fact working to defeat California's Proposition 8. And Senator Obama got in an angry clash with a reporter over his opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act--an argument which his campaign later acknowledged was triggered by a false assertion by Senator Obama.

Character counts--and candor is a part of character. Senator Obama ought to stop the smooth talking and start speaking honestly about his record.


  • According to Frank Schubert, 'Yes on 8' campaign manager, the mobilization of LDS (Mormon) volunteers could save his campaign up to $26 million in costs related to micro-targeting persuadable voters.

    So much for campaign finance rules.
