I guess it can get more ridiculous as we approach election day. What is it about FEAR and HATE that brings people out of the wood work? This story which is false was reported by DRUDGE.com originally. Anyone who is familiar with DRUDGE you know they deal with conspiracy theories, racial division and just plain hatred. The Ad itself is a cheap attempt to discredit President Barack Obama and contrast it with "Entitlements" that are paid for with tax payers money IE, social security, food stamps, free medical and so on. The woman in the video obviously was sought out and agreed to (Not sure paid) to do this. Barack Obama did NOT give away any phones.
The desperation by the Right is unyielding and disingenuous at best. My take on this attempt is that it will 1). Enrage or BOIL the blood of those who weren't voting for Barack Obama even more. 2). Try to pull those undecided to their side who have not made up their minds. This is why people need to check facts before drawing conclusions by what someone else has told them or what they've heard.
The Irony, is that there does exist a government program that provides low income persons to obtain a phone. It just wasn't initiated by Barack Obama. It was started by George W. Bush.
