For his sake, and for the sake of the children of our nation (here think: “Remember the Alamo”).
Kathleen Parker maddens me at times, but my, oh my, is this piece priceless.
Ironically, the day before the vote, Obama said: “We are not bound to win, but we are bound to be true. We are not bound to succeed, but we are bound to let whatever light we have shine.”
Democrats were bound to win, all right, but truth and light had nothing to do with it.
I know I ought to put the best construction on others’ actions – but where is the line between that and being as wise as a serpent?
UPDATE: The website of Democrats for Life has the following notice:
Democrats For Life of America Proud to Be a Part of Healthcare Reform
Sunday, 21 March 2010 19:14 administratorSTATEMENT OF KRISTEN DAY
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF DEMOCRATS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA
“Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) applauds President Obama for his bold leadership in agreeing to an Executive Order that bans taxpayer funded abortions in the health care reform bill expected to pass the House this evening.”
“We are proud to support this historic healthcare legislation. President Obama’s Executive Order shows that when we work towards common ground in Washington we can do the people’s business and end the gridlock. By working with House Leaders and the White House, DFLA shows how the pro-life Democrats are a key and growing constituency.”
“Hubert H. Humphrey best stated it when he said, “ … the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”
Amazing the different perspectives, no?
