Obama said Israelis could be certain of his commitment to Israel's security by looking at "my deeds."
"Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon," he said.
However, Obama does not serve on the banking committee, and McCain's campaign seized on the mistake.
"Not only is it not his committee, but he's not even on the committee, he didn't vote on the bill, and he had nothing to do with its passage," McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said in a statement issued Wednesday.
He might have gotten a pass on this one if you could assume he was merely employing the corporate "we" but when he added the phrase "which is my committee" it became an outright "misrepresentation" of his credentials.
Why does Obama persist in padding his resume......... would some liberal Obama supporter please share the rationale with me?
Not having the liberal insight I can only believe he is an ego driven pathological liar who hopes the American people won't find him out before the election.
