I hate to say this…because I am a rather staunch Catholic, in fact rather “Jesuitical” in nature…
But…y’all need to not jump on a passing wagon load of manure and expect to come out smelling like a rose… You need to take things with a grain of salt, and if you are a “die-hard self-professed neo-con” go to your nearest drug store and get some smelling salts, because you apparently didn’t bother following the links that those people provided.
What you are falling “victim” to is brash neo-con incited vitriol that is senseless…as well as inflammatory, and in the end virtually meaningless as well stupid. If you had followed the links… you would have found these comments made by Obama:
**Obama’s comments came in the context of off-the-cuff remarks addressing the issue of AIDS. (see them here)
The candidate indicated he favored teaching both abstinence education as well as sexual education and he appeared to be hard-pressed to come up with something else to say when he brought up his daughters.
“When it comes specifically to HIV/AIDS, the most important prevention is education, which should include – which should include abstinence education and teaching the children – teaching children, you know, that sex is not something casual,” he said.
“But it should also include – it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old,” he added.
“I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby,” Obama said.**
Take his comments as full statements of a parent, and he is expressing the concerns of a parent…
For the love of “pete”… the guy has been POTUS for less than 2 weeks…give him a chance to find his measure before you start sounding like drunken “dittoheads” speed dialing “Rush”… OK?
And stop expecting the POTUS to solve every ill of the modern world…the “previous one” sure as the dickens didn’t!!!
