Let's see if I've got this straight.
First, the country elects a godless-Marxist as president.
Second, in order to ram through one of his pet socialist projects, this moral degenerate stands in front of the American people and solemnly promises that his government run health care system will not pay for abortions.
Third, less than four months later, government funding of abortions is discovered to be already in place in at least two states.
To put it succinctly, Comrade Obama was lying through his blood-stained teeth. Of course, this is precisely what those of us in the pro-life movement were saying all along, only to be ridiculed and dismissed by the abortion lobby stooges who dominate the media.
The next thing we should anticipate is that, if the Democrats are asked whether this guy broke his promise not to fund abortion, the most predictable response will be that, "It depends on what the definition of 'not' is." And don't laugh. Remember, this same little stunt worked pretty well for the previous Democrat president.
Now if you're looking for a silver lining in all of this, consider the following. Right now, our country is like the young thug who gets thrown in jail for the first time. He is there for some petty crime and knows that he will not be locked-up for long. But, whether he realizes it or not, the bigger issue is that he is being shown what his future will be like unless he makes changes. And he may not understand it at the moment, but if this experience causes him to make those changes, losing his freedom for a few days will be the thing that saves his life. In fact, it may be the only thing that could have saved him. That is where America is today. The Obama administration is shoving down our throats a bitter foretaste of what life is like under the rule of jack-booted Marxists. In effect, they have placed us at a crossroads. If come November and again in 2012, this small glimpse of the future causes the voters to turn off the path we have been following since early in the last century, the election of Obama will immediately become the best thing that ever happened to us. If they do not, however, the country we have known for the last 234 years will soon be unrecognizable–if it exists at all. It is as simple as that.
In the mean time, let's give the devil his due. Who else but Comrade Obama could make Slick Willy Clinton seem like a man of high moral principles and cause Jimmy Carter to come across as a steely-eyed paragon of competence. I mean, you have to admit, that's a heck of a trick.
