Obama sycophant SodaHead's July 15 blog post headline blared, "Latest Right-Wing Lie Blows Up In Their Faces: NO FEDERAL FUNDING FOR ELECTIVE ABORTION."
SodaHead was attempting to beat back conservatives who were in an uproar over National Right to Life's finding that federal funding for PA's health insurance high-risk pool includes abortion coverage....
Likewise, another of Obama's online guardians, Media Matters, quickly hurled a 1,700-word tome into the blogosphere with such cocky subtitles as (emphasis mine), "[Glenn] Beck repeats discredited claim that Obama admin has OK'd federal funding for elective abortions"....
The only problem is the abortion industry agrees with (all) pro-lifers (other than Democrats) that Obama's executive order didn't apply to high-risk pools and were furious when in the wake of NRLC's discovery a busted White House quickly directed DHHS to write rules ensuring that federal funds indeed would not go toward abortion in state high-risk pools....
So while Obama rags were proclaiming his innocence, pro-aborts who had smartly remained silent during the EO sham could no longer contain themselves and began writing just the opposite.
Jessica Arons at the pro-abort blog RH Reality Check snapped, "But here's the catch, nothing in federal law actually restricts the use of federal or state money for abortion in [high-risk pools]."
Rebecca Sive at the same site was even more frank, stating, "In fact, and as we all know, the executive order was nothing but a most willingly made sop to Rep. Stupak.... [T]he Executive Order's creation and signing was a deeply hypocritical and cynical act...."
Now Obama not only has to deal with the pro-life Democratic faction but also the media faction that wants to perpetuate the lie for him vs. the pro-abort faction demanding he give up the sham....
But I do note that increasingly we're seeing pro-aborts hoist on their own petard - and they're supposed to have the political advantage.
Read my column today, "Obama toadies vs. abortion freeloaders," in its entirety at WorldNetDaily.com.
RH Reality Check reader, Lina, reveals what lots of us left leaning folks figure about Obama; he is not a friend to the left or anyone really. He is a pure politician. He cares about himself first, last and everywhere in between. He sees everyone as a useful idiot to one or another elite faction. He just figured more idiots would support him. He selected the biggest group of idiots and got elected. That is how he sees people.
Read Lina's take from RH Reality:
"Here's the answer, women, short and sweet: Obama is not your friend, advocate, or representative. He represents the US empire. And while the Democrats' program has some significant differences compared to the Republicans, when faced with the pressure of maintaining social cohesion "at home" while sustaining years of occupation in 2 countries, ongoing military strikes in at least one other (Pakistan), extreme economic instability and the prospects of domestic upheaval from those committed to racism, religious obscurantism, the subordination of women in every public sphere and ignorant answers to every important question of the day (from the destruction of the Gulf to the ongoing economic crisis), who do you think he's going to go to bat for? "
I knew Obama wouldn't end the wars, so there was no need for me to compromise and vote for a pro abort. If someone is pro abortion, you know he is a snake.Posted by: hippie at July 21, 2010 11:18 AM

I have found your above statement to be true through and through over and over again.Posted by: Praxedes at July 21, 2010 11:57 AM
I don't think I'm a snake. Other than supporting the right to abortion, I think most of you would find me adorable.Posted by: Hal at July 21, 2010 5:40 PM
You know Josef Mengele was a respected doctor before the nazi war machine turned him into a monster, how can a doctor perform an abortion?? can you kill a child with your bare hands?? Our country can expect chastisement, 53 million and counting.

Hal, I personally have a hard time finding the adorable attributes that may lay beneath the large atrocious attribute of a proabort. Not saying adorable isn't there, just saying it's covered up by the your conscious choice to support the killing of our fellow humans. I will meet you halfway and state you are an adorable snake.
Just think how adorable you will be once you join our side! You will put Elmo to shame!
Praying for you.Posted by: Praxedes at July 22, 2010 10:21 AM
"I will meet you halfway and state you are an adorable snake."
Hee-hee... good one, Praxedes.
Ps...I'm having a hard time imagining "adorable" after all the pro-aborts' very loud curses I received while silently holding an aborted baby pic at a recent "Face the Truth" tour...
ok, I'll just slither away quietly for now :)Posted by: Hal at July 22, 2010 3:47 PM

Not I. I think you are a snake.

There is no "right" to abortion. There is only a cohort of evil men denying the right to life of innocent children.Posted by: hippie at July 22, 2010 8:28 PM
What bothers me is that people who are not politically inclined will believe the MSM and not understand the complexity of the situation. They will believe the Administration lies that abortion is not funded by the bill. They won't understand that while abortion isn't currently funded so far (only by constant vigilance on the part of the pro-life movement) it doesn't mean the bill or the EO prevents it from happening. Sigh.Posted by: Denise at July 25, 2010 5:06 PM
