Washington Post associate editor David Maraniss called Obama’s speech last night at Newtown, Ct., his “Gettysburg address.” You know he had that phrase planned before Obama even took the podium.
I don’t know because I didn’t – couldn’t – watch it. Perhaps it was as eloquent as Lincoln’s Gettysburg address. I highly doubt it. I couldn’t watch it because the hypocrisy of that man talking about the death of children is too overwhelming.
I can’t put it any better than DW Ulsterman did:
While there is no doubt of the horrible tragedy that took place in Newtown, there is another statistic of which Barack Obama has strongly defended his entire adult life which dwarfs the tragedy that befell Newtown:
3500 – 4000 children are aborted every day in America. Some of those children are able to live outside the womb of the mother. Even the killing of those children who survive the abortion procedure are to be terminated according to the pro-choice beliefs of Barack Obama.
It is estimated there are over 1000 partial-birth/late term abortions performed in the United States each year.
What of the chances of those children President Obama? Where are your tears and reflection for those thousands of lives snuffed out each and every year? Lives made absent by policies you have long and aggressively supported.
Your words of grief ring hollow and scripted Mr. Obama. When so much of your life’s work has been an advocate of the snuffing out of human life, why should the country believe your attempts to communicate sadness of lost lives now? When you so willingly wrap tragedy inside your own political agenda, how are we to believe anything you say to be sincere?
Remember how he pushed in the Illinois state senate to allow a near term baby who had been aborted yet was still alive be killed? A nurse took the baby in a closet to comfort it before it died.
This is the same man who exclaimed he wouldn’t want his daughter “punished with a baby.”
It’s the culture of death he pushes that contributed to this tragedy. If Lanza hadn’t used a gun, he’d have used another method. Think that wouldn’t be possible? Take a look back at a little remembered incident that took place in 1927. It was mentioned yesterday by Clarice Feldman in americanthinker.com:
It’s not the first or the worst such disaster. Cathy Fasano reminds us of the Bath, Michigan, school bombing in 1927 where a mad school board treasurer killed 45 people and wounded 58, mostly schoolchildren, when he blew up the school, his house, and farm buildings. For good measure he detonated his own car also packed with explosives so the rescuers were also killed.
When evil is afoot it finds ways to carry out its evil plans. Look, also, at what box cutters did on a plane in September, 2001.
