By Paul Stark Editor’s note. Starting last week, as we were beginning to think about the approach of the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we starting running articles from the past which relate directly [or even indirectly] to the somber realization that over 60 million unborn babies have paid the ultimate price for Justice …Continue reading "Assessing one pro-abortion President’s statement on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade"
By Dave Andrusko It was, for me, an interesting juxtaposition of stories and headlines. First, in today’s Washington Post, “For Obamas, paid-speaking circuit can pose risks to their brand” while in the South Carolina Charleston Post-Courier, “Former Texas senator Wendy Davis says Planned Parenthood is under intense pressure at Charleston rally.” One account follows a man …Continue reading "The contrasting post-office fates of the Obamas and Texas State Senator Wendy Davis"
By Dave Andrusko Talk about the long[est] farewell. Pro-abortion President Barack Obama held his “final” press conference today and the contrast between the obsequious way reporters treated him and the 24/7 attacks they launch on pro-life President-elect Donald Trump is a stark reminder of what the Trump Administration has to look forward to over next …Continue reading "Obama conjures up fake news that reporters ever asked him “tough questions”"
By Dave Andrusko The headline in a story in today’s Christian Science Monitor reads, “What will Obama’s farewell speech look like?” As you would anticipate after eight+ years of fawning media coverage, Gretel Kauffman contrasts what she expects will be Obama’s stateman’s-like approach tonight in Chicago with “the rowdy victory rallies of the president-elect.” After …Continue reading "Anticipating the content of President Obama’s farewell speech tonight"
By Dave Andrusko As pro-abortion President Barack Obama, thankfully, approaches the end of his second term, he is busy polishing his “legacy” and (feeling his oats) beginning to offer snarky comments about not just the usual suspects–anyone who disagrees with him, most particularly Republicans–but about Donald Trump who will be Hillary Clinton’s opponent this fall. …Continue reading "About Obama’s smartest guy in the room reputation…"
By Dave Andrusko I like to think that even though my politics are as far away from President Obama’s is as the East is from the West, I can give him the benefit of the doubt when he deserves it. However, this is not that time. Mr. Obama is touring the Near East and Europe …Continue reading "Late to the game, Obama said to be trying to “rebuild” Democrats’ “bench”"
By Dave Andrusko My guess is it represented a kind of back-handed compliment, a measure of grudging respect. The Washington Post, always in the tank for Democrats and dutifully on the front lines of the effort to elevate Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, ran a story by Mike DeBonis, “Why the effort to …Continue reading "Swing voters “completely uninterested” in Supreme Court nomination fight"
By Dave Andrusko As I read that Hillary Clinton responded with a “wow” when a Iowan asked if she’d consider Barack Obama for the Supreme Court, I couldn’t help thinking back to the opening of an “exclusive” interview Mr. Obama gave POLITICO. Glenn Thrush began Barack Obama, that prematurely gray elder statesman, is laboring mightily …Continue reading "Clinton warm to suggestion of nominating Barack Obama to the Supreme Court"
By Dave Andrusko Running on fumes, pro-abortion President Barack Obama cranked out his final statement on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. His remarks were four sentences long, 108 words in length. If you are the Abortion Establishment, at least you could console yourself that Mr. Obama mentioned “reproductive freedom,” since that was conspicuously absent …Continue reading "President Obama’s final January 22 statement, less of the same"
By Dave Andrusko And while White House aides were careful to avoid describing Tuesday’s speech as a victory lap, Obama planned to call attention to his administration’s successes, both during the last year and throughout his two terms in office – Associated Press Democrats Wary of embracing Obama victories – Washington Post Tonight President Obama will …Continue reading "Some further reflections on President Obama’s final State of the Union Address"
By Dave Andrusko This is one of those instances that you have to be sure that while you don’t over-interpret, you also don’t minimize the significance, either. Tomorrow, at long last, two-term pro-abortion President Barack Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address. While he will tout all of his “accomplishments,” even Democrats …Continue reading "On the eve of President Obama’s final State of the Union address"
By Katie Yoder and Lauretta Brown President Obama showed solidarity with the nation’s No. 1 abortion provider this weekend by expressing that America is “a people who stand up for the rights of women to make their own decisions about their health,” according to a statement that never once mentioned “abortion.” This was part of …Continue reading "Obama Backs Planned Parenthood Rally But Avoids Ever Saying ‘Abortion’"
