Tim Graham, of NRO’s Media Blog caught this gem from Obama’s essay in Parade Magazine about fatherhood. I think Obama’s going to need his teleprompter to even write his essays now too. Here’s what Obama wrote:
That is why we need fathers to step up, to realize that their job does not end at conception; that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child but the courage to raise one.
Uh…Did Obama just say fatherhood starts at conception?
Yup. He did.
So it’s not above Obama’s pay grade to decide when fatherhood begins but when a baby becomes a baby is confusing?
And if you’re a father at conception, what exactly are you a father of? A potential baby? I can hear it now “Congratulations, you’re the proud father of a brand new potential baby!”
I love the whole “potential life” argument I’ve heard so often. Even Bill O’Reilly used it last week when defending his pro-choice stance. A potential life? What the heck is that? And these are the people who say they’re are all about science? Let me check out my old science textbooks and look up “potential life.” I’d bet I’d find something about Mars and that’s about it.
The whole pro-choice argument is a house of cards that depends on catchphrases, slogans and obfuscation to continue.
But, in the end, none of this means anything to Obama. He’s not interested in truth. Just as Pundette said, “What it really means is . . . nothing. Any connection between Obama’s words and truth are coincidental.”
