Besides the obvious lie about what he said, the owner of a specialty deli in Cincinnati saw something familiar: her own business. And she isn't happy about it. She wants the footage of her deli removed. From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
Ten seconds into the ad “Always,” a man is shown from behind, pushing up the security door of Krause’s while Obama’s voice talks about owners sacrificing to make their businesses run.First, Barack Obama tells Debra Krause-McDonnell that she didn't build Krause's Deli and that somebody else made it happen. That was insulting enough. He then felt that since the government really built it, that he could use it in his commericial to make it appear that Krause's stands with him.
The owner of the store, Debra Krause-McDonnell, said that she did not give permission for her business to be shown and that some customers have told her they’ll no longer shop there.
“I’ve been put into a position I didn’t ask for,” she said Wednesday after the Hamilton County Republican Party sent out an email about the ad that accused Democrats of not responding to the owner’s concerns. “I’m a little angry.”
In reality, it is turning off Krause's customers. What did the Hamilton County Democratic Party have to say about that? They don't care, and accused her of having an agenda.
“From my conversations with her, it’s clear she’s not an Obama supporter,” he said. “So she’s got a political agenda.”I see. She isn't an Obama supporter, so screw her. Not exactly the best way to repair the relationship Obama has damaged with Ohio's business owners, is it?
