Ben Smith, Obama’s Opposition to Born Alive, and the Media

A strange thing happened during last week’s debate. One of the candidates actually brought up what could be President Obama’s least covered but most controversial on the record stance ever. The candidate was Newt Gingrich and Obama’s stance was against the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act: After that moment though something a bit more predictable happened. Ben Smith, formerly of Politico and now the head of Buzzfeed’s political reporting operation, immediately tweeted out a defense of President Obama by lumping him in with a larger group of critics: Obama opposed a “born alive” bill that, critics said, went well

Ben Smith, Obama’s Opposition to Born Alive, and the Media – Email Transcript

Stephen Gutowski: Hello Ben, Here is the full transcript of the Illinois General Assembly for April 4th, 2002 and the relevant section is from page 31 to 34: http://www.ilga.gov/senate/transcripts/strans92/ST040402.pdf His argument includes the idea that Born Alive could somehow outlaw abortions all together but it also goes well beyond. He worries about the kind of burden the Born Alive Act would put on the abortionist since it would require a doctor to check the health of any baby that had survived the induced abortion. He basically argues that the abortionist, who is actively trying to abort the child in question,

Associated Press Cites Cookie Success as Example of Obama’s Change

No… I couldn’t make this up if I tried: Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country? Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines. Yes… that’s right, not only is Obama our new savior but he is now our new Pillsbury Doughboy. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_I3br9m-68 Actually, judging by this comment from the owner of the cafe that Obama has shown his grace upon maybe he is a strange doughboy messiah combination, or, in other words, he is a savory savior: “I think everybody just … thought, ‘Oh, great cookie, great president _ the

Joe Biden is a whinny little girl…

Here’s more proof (via Malkin): httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZT1y1io4vA P.s. CBS 3 won’t post the video of the interview. I’m not surprised since, much like the rest of the MSM, they are complete hacks who consider journalistic integrity as a embarrassment… Absolutely pathetic.

Liberals and “Insane rage”

I feel like I have to link to this story by Michelle Malkin (here’s the syndicated article) because the media has been pissing me off more than usual lately with their stories on how out-of-control, insane, crazy, hateful, bloodthirsty, evil, maniacal, vindictive, racist, nasty, vulgar, beast-like, and mob-like the crowds at McCain-Palin rallies have been. Michelle’s piece is pretty comprehensive but its pretty impossible to catalog all of the insane acts liberals have been driven to by their own derangement. So I’ve decided to add two to the list really quickly. First, there’s always the story of the nut-job Bush
