Romney and Obama at the Al Smith Dinner

I had never heard of the Al Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner before the flak that arose over President Obama being invited this year.

According to Wiki the event is “is an annual white tie charity fundraiser for [local] Catholic charities, held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York on the third Thursday of October… in honor of former NY Governor Al Smith, the first Catholic presidential candidate. The first dinner was in 1945, the year after Al Smith’s death.”

Last night’s event raised $5 million.

Wiki goes on to explain the Al Smith Dinner’s foray into presidential abortion politics:

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: Right to life position “almost like Sharia”

… [T]here’s a grand canyon of difference between Obama, who’s very pro-choice, and, for example, the Republican ticket this year, which would give 14th Amendment rights, whatever that means, life, liberty, and property rights, to a fetus that had just been – or rather, an egg that had just been fertilized, right after sex, if […]

Obama, Big Bird, and Planned Parenthood

In the history of the United States there has been and there never will be a bigger supporter of Planned Parenthood in the White House than President Barack Obama.

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:

  • Moral Outcry wonders why no one raised the issue of the enormous costs of abortion in the first Presidential Debate of 2012:

    As a classroom teacher for many years who made anywhere from $27,500 to $40,000, (so let’s average that to $33,750, which is actually very low for a teacher average nationwide, but not too far from starting salaries) I’d like to propose that if we cut Planned Parenthoodfunding for a year we could pay a year’s starting salary to 10,761 new teachers. 

Big name conservatives rally for Todd Akin; GOP establishment warms

The final deadline for Missouri Republican U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin to drop from the race came and went on September 25, and he did not.

The GOP establishment that had stood alongside Democrats and feminists to castigate Akin for his August 19 “legitimate rape” misstep must now eat crow. The polls and grasp of the U.S. Senate are too close.

Paul Ryan: HHS contraceptive mandate “will be gone” if Romney wins

… Wisconsin congressman [and pro-life Catholic Paul Ryan] said if he and Mitt Romney win the election in November, the requirement [for] religious employers… to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs “will be gone, I can guarantee you that…. The Obama administration failed to recognize this mandate is in violation of our First Amendment right […]

Mega-church pastor: Evangelicals warming to Romney for 3 big reasons

I had no reason to think that evangelicals would be any more enthused about Mitt Romney than they were about John McCain. But over the last 11 months three developments have changed my mind about Romney’s appeal to evangelical voters. First, many evangelical Christians are incensed by the Obama administration’s relentless assaults on religious freedom…. […]
