Judging from Obama’s Judgement–We’re in Deep

currently listening: Ben Folds Five, “Brick”

Obama, Obama, Obama.

I cannot even turn on the Superbowl without being forced to listen to him espouse his own greatness.

As an American, I fully recognize and respect Barry Obama as my President. That being said, I diagree [emphatically] with almost every judgement call he’s made thus far during the first 100 days of his Administration.

Let us first consider Obama’s decision to reinstate the Mexico City Plan. We are in the middle of the most severe recession since the Great Depression and our President sees fit to funnel taxpayer funds to non-governmental institutions worldwide receiving USAID to promote abortion as a form of family planning? The President affirmed his decision during a press conference during which he stated, abortion is an issue that contributes to partisan bitterness that he refuses to participate in. This is the same man, that when questioned on when life begins during the Saddleback Forum, announced that that was an issue he couldn’t address because it was “above his paygrade.” Now, I may not be a lawyer, a great philosopher, or a political strategist, but I have some common sense. And I believe common sense is under appreciated and very rarely practiced in American politics. Mr. President–by giving the ‘okay’ to use taxpayer dollars to fund international promotion of abortion as a form of family planning–you’re participating in a partisan debate and supporting a culture of death. No stripping away of eloquent rhetoric neccessary, that act speaks for itself.

Additionally, I believe it is absolutely imperative that American lawmakers renounce FOCA, which would be the most destructive attack on life that this country has ever seen. FOCA would permit partial-birth abortions nation-wide [and abolish the precedent set by Gonzales v. Carhart], and essentially invalidate all limits on abortion as they stand today, including parental permission required for minors to obtain the procedure. While supporters argue that the passage of FOCA [which Obama has promised to sign] would only codify Roe v. Wade, what it would really do is destroy all pro-life laws that have been established since 1973.

I think I speak for pro-life women everwhere when I say to the National Organization for Women in the most polite way I know how: SHUT UP. Please.

This is an organization whose objective is to promote the physical, mental, emotional, and professional well-being of American women. Abortion is offensive to women but the culture of the United States today has not left women with many other choices. Instead, the attack of feminists and leftist liberals on the culture of life and their demonization of the Christian Right has women convinced that any effort to curtail abortion is an affront to their personal rights. Ladies, I’m here to tell you, as a member of your sex, that ABORTION IS NOT YOUR RIGHT. It’s your right to take an oral or other contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. It’s your right to give your man a condom before you have sex to prevent pregnancy. It’s not your right to take a life, and abortion ends life. The life of an innocent that has no voice and cannot defend its right to life. And I’m not speaking to the 1% of you that become pregnant under the unfortunate and sad circumstance of rape or incest. Although I am unapologetically pro-life and support the procedure under no circumstance. Which does not mean I have no compassion for this 1% of American women. I just recognize the incredible strength, both emotional and physical, that I believe women are endowed with, which is why we are capable of mothering children. And I think that through that strength, women are capable of bearing “unwanted children” [I hate that term], and giving them life with another family, maybe one that cannot conceive. Our bodies are our temples, and we’re only given one. How can a women’s organization such as NOW support such an invasive procedure that degrades the womb, the most unique and incredible part of a woman’s body. It is home to life. Women are life-giving. And the act of abortion completely disregards this. Pro-choice women have become so obsessed with the “rights terminology” of our day and have become so entrenched against the pro-life cause that they cannot even recognize their own incredible uniqueness. And that is the real crime here. Oh, besides the anihilation of innocent life, that is.

But, Obama’s not taking sides.

Another of the President’s judgement calls I believe to be questionable–Timothy Geithner. The man doesn’t pay his own taxes, blames it on a computer program, and we should put him in control of the Internal Revenue Service? Common Sense. In fact, I believe several of Obama’s high-profile candidates for the cabinet have had some indiscretions. Clinton–she’s a Clinton, and that’s all that needs to be said about her nomination for Secretary of State, one she earned thanks to Joe Biden who steam rolled over her opportunity to become Vice-President. Thanks for letting that one slip on Oprah Jilly. And it seems to me that Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel would better serve on the set of the Sopranos than in the White House. D.C. decorum involves using our SAT words to settle disputes, not sending dead fish to dissenters.

God, I miss Sarah Palin.

Please visit her website and contribute to her new PAC at http://www.sarahpac.com, which will undoubtedly be used to support her future presidential ambitions.

Until next time..keep to the right!

    I hope for the best for him. But I question the judgment of a man who places a person who doesn’t pay his own taxes in charge of the IRS. I think that’s a fair criticism. We’re all entitled to our opinions. I respect and appreciate yours but judging from your screename you wouldn’t like whatever I posted here. Varying opinions–spice of life, makes the world go ’round. Thanks for your response.
