CHICAGO–The Republican National Committee, in a preview of what’s ahead, hits Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the likely Democratic presidential nominee, on his present votes as an Illinois state senator, taxes, Iraq war funding votes and his remarks that some voters “cling” to God and guns.

FROM THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE…… provides Americans with an opportunity to submit text or video questions for Barack Obama regarding the issues he has failed to address or refused to answer, including:

— Why, as an Illinois state Senator, did he vote “present” over 130

times instead of “yes” or “no” on difficult issues like abortion,

crime, and guns?

— On fiscal responsibility, how he intends to pay for over $660 billion

in his new spending proposals and whether he can do it without raising

taxes on families and small businesses?

— Why he voted against funding for our troops after promising not to use

them as pawns in a war funding debate?

— Why did he tell donors in San Francisco that the economy has driven

small town voters to “cling” to guns and religion?
