Somethings you can’t just make up/…

Disclaimer: snarkish type comments, and influences of sarcasm are used throughout.

At My.Barackobama.com and a tip to cavey, I found this wonderful piece of information. my comments in RED

Speaking this afternoon at a Planned Parenthood conference, Barack emphasized his support for a woman’s right to choose (well, if by that you mean your choice to have pre-marital sex, then by all means, it’s a right to chose, God did give us free will. As for that (non) existing right to abortion (you know that one not written in the Constitution, that’s not true and you know it)). He also criticized the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Gonzales v. Carhart to uphold a ban on late-term abortions.

Calling the decision a “concerted effort to steadily roll back the hard-won rights of American women (voting, yes, hard fought and won, abortion, not a right once again. Law should be independent of emotion),” Barack reminded the audience that with one more court vacancy, the conservative justices would overturn a woman’s right to choose (no, you can still choose to have pre-marital sex, it’s the choice that you made).

As the New York Times Caucus blog reported, in one of his first acts as president (if he makes it that far), Barack would sign the Freedom of Choice Act – a bill that would guarantee abortion (not in the Constitution) rights for women.

Barack also criticized the Senate’s confirmation process that allowed Chief Justice Roberts to sail to an easy confirmation.

“He loves his wife. He’s good to his dog (good to know he puts dogs ahead of tiny innocent little babies, (sarcasm off)…is it me, or is there something wrong with this statement),” Barack joked, referring to the fluffy answers the Senate Judiciary Committee allowed Roberts to give. We need to use a different standard to evaluate justices, Barack said:

We need somebody who’s got the heart (to read the Constitution for what it is, and not some hidden agenda), the empathy (to disregard any emotional responses), to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom (problem, the majority of people were actually somewhat intelligent in planning). The empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor (so non-lawyers to you would be acceptable Barack?), or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that’s the criteria by which I’m going to be selecting my judges (Good to know knowledge of the Constitution won’t be required)

Extra comments:

Things like this are exactly why one of my acts when becoming president will be as follows: Nominate Kit, Digi and Anita as my judges. I’ll put my trust in them to actually read the Constitution for what it is.

Joe of St. Thérèse, bringing back the Constitution from it’s 30 year hiatus 🙂
