The AP reports:
President Barack Obama, treading carefully in the explosive arena of abortion and the Supreme Court, said Wednesday he will choose a nominee who pays heed to the rights of women and the privacy of their bodies. Yet he said he won’t enforce any abortion rights “litmus tests.” Obama said it is “very important to me” that his court choice take women’s rights into account in interpreting the Constitution, his most expansive comments yet about how a woman’s right to choose will factor into his decision.
This is absolutely the mainstream media at its worst. They’ve become White House stenographers.
Obama here said he WILL choose a nominee that “pays heed” to the right to privacy which Roe v. Wade invented to secure the right for Big Abortion to make millions and millions of dollars killing babies. Yet literally in the next sentence the AP contradicts itself by saying there WON’T be a “litmus test.” Are these people idiots? The first two lines of their story are mutually exclusive.
These people have no shame. It’s sad that even with their own imminent demise they insist on promulgating the fiction that Obama is a moderate. And they do this at the cost of their own integrity and further their own spiral.
I guess what’s really sad is that every time a Republican president gets a chance to nominate a Supreme Court Justice, pro-lifers have reason to be more nervous than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs because we’ve been burned so often. Yet, pro-aborts can rest easy that there’s not one chance in a million that Obama will nominate a pro-lifer.
