Shameless: Barack Obama Slammed John McCain on Immigration in 2008, Flip-Flops in 2012 With Lies Attacking Mitt Romney

Via BuzzFeed, "Obama Hasn't Always Liked John McCain's Immigration Stance":
At a fundraiser tonight, President Barack Obama said his 2008 opponent believes in Immigration reform, as opposed to Mitt Romney. But in 2008, Obama ran this ad attacking McCain on Immigration, tying him to Rush Limbaugh and George W. Bush.

Here's the translation:
"They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out."

"They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much," the ad continues. "John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families."
And here's more at BuzzFeed, "Obama: Romney Is Worse Than John McCain":
President Barack Obama told an audience in New York tonight that Mitt Romney is worse than his 2008 opponent Sen. John McCain.

“We have a very clear contrast this time. John McCain believed in climate change and believed in immigration reform," Obama told an audience of about 200 donors who paid at least $5000 for a ticket to the event. "What we have this time out a candidate who said he would rubber stamp a Republican Congress that wants us to go backward, not forward.”
Utterly shameless.

It would be mindboggling if it wasn't so unexceptional. Obama will do anything to win. Anything.
