12 years ago, I thought girls were gross

And aparently, 12 years ago, Barack Obama held positions so liberal that they "won’t even fly with a large number of Democrats, let alone in a general election"


The evidence comes from an amended version of an Illinois voter group’s detailed questionnaire, filed under his name during his 1996 bid for a state Senate seat.

Late last year, in response to a Politico story about Obama’s answers to the original questionnaire, his aides said he “never saw or approved” the questionnaire.

They asserted the responses were filled out by a campaign aide who “unintentionally mischaracterize(d) his position.”

But a Politico examination determined that Obama was actually interviewed about the issues on the questionnaire by the liberal Chicago non-profit group that issued it. And it found that Obama – the day after sitting for the interview – filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes adding to one answer.

emphasis mine. So Barack Obama filled out a questionnaire twelve years ago, then forgot that he filled it out. Perhaps they might follow up with whether he might have, you know, changed his mind since then?
