Misleader: Obama Ad Claims to Have Helped Brian Slagle Get a Job, but Man Claims on Facebook Employment Since 2006
Barack Obama, the Misleader in Chief … What Obama fabricate and mislead the people regarding jobs, say it isn’t so. Obama claim he did something when nothing of the sort ever happened, shocker!
From The Weekly Standard comes the following story of Barack Obama claiming in a political ad to have helped Brian Slagle, an out of work Ohio autoworker, get a job. Just one problem, in fact, Slagle has been employed with Johnson Controls since February 2006, according to his own Facebook page.
Matt Negrin of ABC reports that “A new ad by Obama tells the story of Brian Slagle, an autoworker in Ohio who says he was laid off and ‘scared to death’ until the president swooped in to save the industry.”
In the spot, Slagle says, “Obama stuck his neck out for us, the auto industry. … He wasn’t going to let it just die, and I’m driving in this morning because of that, because of him.” The ad is meant to praise Obama’s auto bailout for saving jobs.
So what is the truth, was this individual employed or not? Red flag alter! As reported at The Right Sphere, Slagle scrubbed his Facebook. Never a good sign, but no matter, there are already screen shots taken of the original page.
