Obama: “I am not pro-abortion.”

I’m sorry if I seem to be harping on Barack Obama. But the various disconnects in what he says and does are truly amazing and alarming. Yet the news media gives him a free pass for the most part. So I see it as my duty as a blogger to shed a little light.

The latest disconnect is this statement from the campaign trail in South Dakota: “I am not pro-abortion.”

Wow! What a whopper! This is from a guy who supports forcing taxpayers to fund abortions, who vociferously opposed the ban on partial birth abortions, who was given 100% ratings by NARAL in 2005, 2006, and 2007, etc. etc. How the hell is he not pro-abortion? Because he hasn’t personally performed abortions himself?

And, sorry, “pro-choice” doesn’t fly here. Anyone who thinks taxpayers should be forced to pay for elective abortions gives up the right to use that buzzword.

Obama is either a big liar or he is so disconnected from the truth that he doesn’t have the faintest idea what it is.

Perhaps he has bought into his own hype as the Great Unifier. In this case he unifies within himself two completely unreconcilable positions.

But hey, if any one can accomplish it, Obama-man can!
