People may wonder whether Obama actually likes Israel, but they will never, ever wonder whether he likes Planned Parenthood.
In fact, truth be told, Obama would obviously rather wear an “I ♥ Planned Parenthood” pin instead of American flag pin if he could get away with it.
Last night during his debate against Mitt Romney, Obama invoked his sacred cow, Planned Parenthood, five times:
- “We haven’t heard from the governor any specifics [on budget cuts], beyond Big Bird and eliminating funding for Planned Parenthood, in terms of how he pays for that.”
- “When Governor Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country.”
- “You know, there are some things where Governor Romney’s different from George Bush. George Bush didn’t propose turning Medicare into a voucher. George Bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. He didn’t call for self-deportation. George Bush never suggested that we eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood.”
- “But you should pay attention to this campaign, because Governor Romney’s made some commitments as well, and I suspect he’ll keep those, too. You know, when members of the Republican Congress… said, we’re going to cut Planned Parenthood funding, he said, me too.”
Of course, Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms, but Obama apparently pays as little attention to detail during his daily Planned Parenthood briefings as he does his daily security briefings.
Obama’s mash-up of Big Bird and Planned Parenthood was comical, exemplifying the worst ridiculosity of politics.
Obviously, despite the pro-life movement’s best attempts to expose Planned Parenthood’s underbelly, Obama’s internal polling must show Planned Parenthood’s brand still scores well with American women.
Either that, or Obama is so obligated to Planned Parenthood for help with his reelection (or PP has something on him), he is continuously compelled to promote the abortion behemoth.
