Great Start: Obama's first ad contains Outright Lie

Gateway Pundit finds Obama lying in his first ad out of the box. Not "misleading", mind you; lying:
Here is a frame from Obama's very first general election ad:

Obama says that he "extended healthcare for wounded troops that had been neglected" and cited Public Law 110-181 as proof of this.

The problem is: Obama didn't show up to vote. Only 9 senators voted the bill down or did not show up to vote.
Obama was one of the 9.
The bill passed the senate 91 to 3... without Obama's vote.

Weekly Standard Blog mentioned this yesterday.

Obama Gaffes says this isn't the first time this has happened.
