Will The Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up?

The President addressed the 2009 graduating class of Notre Dame University amidst a swirl of controversy over the appropriateness of a blatantly pro-abortion President receiving an honorary degree and then addressing the graduating class. Demonstrators arrived on the campus and were summarily arrested for trespassing on the university grounds. Students and parents boycotted their graduation and attended prayer services held on the college grounds. Graduates used their mortar boards to voice support for the President or for the Pro-life cause.

Then the POTUS took the podium, and in his inimitable suave style, delivered a speech that served absolution to American Catholics who turned their backs on the sanctity of life when they voted for candidate Obama. Then he gave a shameless plug for his own book.

But contrast this speech with Candidate Obama who, less than one year ago, glibly and arrogantly proclaimed his support for the Pro-abortion cause in a speech to Planned Parenthood.

This is the same man who "doesn't want his daughters punished with a baby." This is the same man who during the campaign gave his "Just Words" speech in which he plagiarized Deval Patrick, but regardless of whose "words" they were, they underscored the use of words, the power of mere words, and ultimately we know that talk can be cheap.

So which "words" reflect the real position of Barack Obama?? He can talk the talk, but will he/ can he walk the walk? I am reminded of a Department Chairman in years past whose business style was to engage everyone in giving input about subjects, but then he did what he wanted to do. The only thing he gained was cover for him to hide behind when people challenged him on why he did things that no one wanted.

Can you name ONE thing that President Obama has done in the name of reducing abortion in this nation???

Answer: He took some incendiary language regarding abortion off of his website.

So, while we heard flowery prose on Sunday afternoon, actions speak louder than words and Mr. Obama's actions seem to relegate those "words" to just that...."just words".

  1. Hi, I just found your blog. I was looking for good conservative ones. There are sooooo many left-wing sites out there, sometimes it's hard to find the good ones. Yours is a good one.

    I totally respect the office of president, and what it stands for. I have many relatives and ancestors who fought and some died for the freedom we have today. But even though I have the utmost respect for the office, the man makes me sick. I can't even look at him on the news he makes me so angry.

    We went to a children's museum the other day and they had a mock oval office with a card board cut out of Obama. I posted the pics of my boy on my blog because he is so darn cute, but I didn't post the pick of me giving Obama bunny ears... Or my husband blowing rasberries at him... but I can't help but chuckle when I look at them in private :)

    I love your thoughts, I'll be back.
