Wonder if the media fact-checkers will get this one out there. Uhm. Something tells me there's as much chance of that as margaritas in Hell. So let's break it down.
During the debate last night, President Obama defended Planned Parenthood. As usual. But why? Did a woman ask about the HHS mandate? No. Did a young woman ask about her right to tear apart her baby limb from limb if "it" might interfere with her active night life? Nope. Was Sandra Fluke there? No. Obama brought up Planned Parenthood because a woman asked about pay equity, of course.
Seriously, what is it with this guy? He's like a wind-up toy with pre-set responses. If "women's issues" come up, Obama immediately starts chatting up Planned Parenthood as if women were just lady parts that vote.
You see, to Obama, babies are the problem. If you don't make enough money you're clearly being punished by a baby. And he knows just the right folks to help you out with that.
But to make it worse, Obama actually lied about Planned Parenthood. Wait, he didn't just lie. Obama elbow-slammed truth, chloroformed it, and drop kicked it Shatner style onto the floor where Candy Crowley could ignore it and step over it on the way to receiving adulation from her reporter buddies.
He claimed that women depend on the abortion giant for mammograms. That's a lie. Here's the transcript in case you don't believe me:
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. And it makes a difference in terms of how well and effectively women are able to work. When we talk about child care, and the credits that we’re providing. That makes a difference in whether they can go out there and — and earn a living for their family.
These are not just women’s issues. These are family issues. These are economic issues.
And one of the things that makes us grow as an economy is when everybody participates and women are getting the same fair deal as men are.
And I’ve got two daughters and I want to make sure that they have the same opportunities that anybody’s sons have.
Is anyone else creeped out that President Obama talks about Planned Parenthood, child care, and his daughters in the same paragraph? Or is it just me?
But then again, this is the man who advocated the death of his own grandchild when he said he didn't want his daughter "punished with a baby."
A Planned Parenthood spokesperson even admitted they don't perform mammograms in the Washington Post after Lila Rose and the Live Action gang completely depantsed them publicly with undercover audiotapes. He admitted, "we refer our patients to other facilities for mammograms when indicated based on a breast exam, age or family history."
Heck, I could do that. Where's my federal funding?
There was only one boob getting x-rayed last night and it was the President. Actually you didn't need an x-ray, he was completely transparent. I looked into Obama's soul last night and I saw dumpsters of dead babies.
Obama mentioned Planned Parenthood five times during the debate last night. Five times. And there was not one single question about Planned Parenthood. Nobody else was talking about them. Gee, you think Obama's constant repetition of Planned Parenthood has anything to do with the fact that Gallup shows him tanking with women? Hey, you ever think that maybe one of the reasons he's tanking with women is that when women ask him about things like jobs, he raves on and on about contraception and abortion.
If you were playing a drinking game where you had to drink every time Obama mentioned Planned Parenthood, you'd have been arrested last night.
The thing is, President Obama knows this is a lie or he is so incredibly incompetent that he's demanding funding for all the wrong reasons. But in truth, we all know that he wants federal funds to continue going to Planned Parenthood for two reasons. Abortions and freeing up money that they can donate to the Democrat Party to keep abortion legal.
