Ad Wars: Obama’s ‘Republican’ Woman, Registered as Dem. for Last 6 Years

One of Barack Obama’s recent ads for his re-election campaign is supposed to feature Republican women who have turned away from the GOP to support Obama/Biden. But, as it turns out, one of the women in the ad is not so “Republican” as she’s presented, having been a registered Democrat for the last 6 years — several years longer than Obama has been president.

“People like me and my family have realized that the Republican Party once was inline with our views, but are no longer,” Ciano says in the ad.

But Maria Ciano of Colorado has been a registered Democrat since October of 2006[1] according to her voting records.

This makes her a Democrat since before Obama ever ran for president. This also means that Barack Obama had no role in her decision to become a Democrat and neither did Romney). Her appearance in this Obama ad is specious at best.

After this news broke, John Hinderaker[2] did a bit more legwork and discovered Ciano’s Facebook page[3]. On that page, Ciano lists a long, long string of extremist left-wing groups that she “likes.”

Nope, not very “Republican” at all, is she?

As Hinderaker says, “There are liars; there are compulsive liars; and then there is the Obama campaign.”

This is exactly right. There is no way at all the Obama’s team didn’t know that Maria Ciano was an out and out Democrat and has been for years.
