“That’s not right. That’s not who we are. We can do better than that.” (Applause.)
Monday, in El Paso, Obama said, “we should stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents”, and Bryan Preston over at PJ Media predicted that those words would “boomerang back” on “the most pro-abortion President in American history”.
Who could have predicted that the boomerang would happen this fast:
After his speech in El Paso, Texas, President Barack Obama made his way to Austin for a campaign rally where he asked hundreds of supporters to help him with his re-election bid. In a more private affair, he curried favor with the head of Planned Parenthood.
Although a public list of the names of the guest was not released, one prominent attendee outed herself: Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards.“Dinner with President Obama in my home town! Doesn’t get nuch [sic] better than that,” she said on Twitter Tuesday night.
Jill Stanek, a pro-life nurse and blogger, noticed the Tweet and responded to the news that Richards, once again, had private time with Obama.
“An experienced lobbyist, Cecile Richards knows that’s the way to do it: As often as possible remind your political friends why you’re political friends,” she said. “In this case Cecile was displaying not just her money but also her influence in Austin, the capital of Texas, where her mother was once governor. And share not just bad times, when you’re asking (or demanding) something, but also good times.”
“We see here an example of the abortion industry’s major strong suit: political savvy,” Stanek continued, and referred to Obama’s recent pledge to veto bills de-funding Planned Parenthood and stopping taxpayer funding of abortions via the federal government. “Here’s also an example of the other side’s unfair advantage: Obama just ensured Planned Parenthood continues to get a boatload of money from his end, and Cecile was just returning the favor.”
It’s called pay to play, I think. Everybody wins!
Well, okay – not everybody….
