President Obama Springs Into Action

Here's what pissed me off this morning...less than a week into the messiah's reign:

President Obama on Friday lifted a ban on federal funding for international groups that promote or perform abortions, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Obama signed the executive order one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.

Hmm. So let me get this straight. The US economy is teetering, and Barry wants to take MY TAX DOLLARS and send them to foreign countries to finance the killing of babies abortions?

I don't agree with using my tax dollars to fund abortion in my own country. But let's leave the ethical arguments against abortion out of the argument for right now. How can Barry possibly justify sending millions of dollars OUT of our country to fund a procedure that does not enhance the global economy...and in fact is a long-term detriment to it?

From a purely fiscal perspective, that is just stupidity.

And so is this:

QUESTION: Mr. Boehner, you had three strong words in reaction to the Democratic House proposal. What was your message to President Obama?

HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH): You know, I’m concerned about the size of the package and I’m concerned about some of the spending that’s in there. How you can spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives – how does that stimulate the economy?

The Barry O. "Stimulus Package"

You know what Boehner should have done? He should have walked out to the presser with a case of condoms and abortion leaflets and started handing them out without saying a word. And then he could have turned to the cameras and said, "I just want America to know what our President will be blowing millions of your hard-earned tax dollars on."

And just an aside...I wonder if Baby-Killer Barry has been to church yet?

Well that stimulus package has a hole in it, and our kids will be paying for it for a long time.

Nice to see ya Nigel.

Aw, c'mon---we have a guy in charge of the treasury who is guilty of tax evasion...and you're worried about a few billion going to help international baby-killers? You know---he's the guy that BOTH parties now are saying is the only guy "smart enough" to get us out of this mess...presumably because he played such a large part in getting us INTO it !! Hope-and-change logic at its finest.
Lifting this funding ban is just another symptom of the Obama disease. I'm afraid that in the next few years, $880 Billion (and counting) is gonna look like chump-change.

It's going to take a long time and a lot of work to clean up the fucking mess the Republicans made.

Nigel said...

Wow...brilliant analysis Nunya. Perhaps you can expound on that and also how sending $450 million overseas to fund abortion clinics will help our economy?

Please? I'd really like to hear...
