Media Continue to Ignore Obama Abortion Kerfuffle
All the spin will make you dizzy. Obama digs the hole deeper. After the media ignored the Obama campaign admitting that he lied about a vote he made in 2003 in favor of infanticide, now Obama is accusing others of “attacking” him with “outrageous lies”!
“Senator Obama strongly supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose. He believes that there is a moral and ethical element to this issue, and he believes that women do not make these decisions casually, but wrestle with them in consultation with their doctors, pastors and family. Senator Obama understands that some will disagree with him and choose not to support him, and he respects those with different opinions.
But the recent attacks on Senator Obama that allege he would allow babies born alive to die are outrageous lies. The suggestion that Obama – the proud father of two little girls – and others who opposed these bills supported infanticide is deeply offensive and insulting. There is no room for these kinds of distortions and lies in this campaign.
I know we could get very creative with the word “audacity” now! David Freddoso zeroes in on the spin.
Instead of apologizing to the people Obama wrongly called “liars” on Saturday, he is taking refuge in charged semantics. His campaign, unable to defend the votes he took and the things he said, which are all backed up by documentary evidence, is dropping an atomic bomb of triviality on the entire debate. Obama will only get away with this if the media lets him. A reader asks, “Where is FactCheck.org?”
Don’t count on the media to do any fact checking. If they were interested in doing that, the documents and facts are easily available. I can see why Obama thinks he can get away with this. The media ignored his lies once, they’ll most likely continue to eat them up. Meanwhile, Obama’s arrogance and audacity will continue to reach uncharted levels.
