Stopped Clock Moment

From James Earl Carter, foreign-policy disaster walking:

"I never have felt that any abortion should be committed -- I think each abortion is the result of a series of errors," he told reporters over breakfast at the Ritz-CarltonHotel, while across town Senate Democrats deliberated whether to filibuster the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. because he may share President Bush and Mr. Carter's abhorrence of abortion.

"These things impact other issues on which [Mr. Bush] and I basically agree," the Georgia Democrat said. "

I've never been convinced, if you let me inject my Christianity into it, that Jesus Christ would approve abortion."

Hear!! Hear!!!

Jimmy Carter: My candidate for worst President, hands down.

Here's more:

Democrats must "let the deeply religious people and the moderates on social issues like abortion feel that the Democratic party cares about them and understands them," he said, adding that many Democrats, like him, "have some concern about, say, late-term abortions, where you kill a baby as it's emerging from its mother's womb."

Which democrats might those be? And I still can't get over the "some concerns" part of that sentence.
Although he's speaking up and did a little bit to stop some abortions when he was president; he's an idiot.
But, I think Ford was a bigger one. His wife needs to be b*tch-slapped. (Sorry Dad.)

Lets see Abortion became the law of the land in 1973. Since then, Nixon, Ford, now apparently Carter, The Gipper, Bush I, and Bush II have all claimed to be "pro-life."

The only "pro-choice" president we had was one who said that abortion should be "rare."

Yet we still have something along the lines of 3000 abortions a day in America.

What gives?

Scarlette said...

Yes, although Bush W. is the only president I know that has actually said "I'm pro-life" without adding "but...".
I don't know what to say about the (over) 3000 abortions a day. It's just another thing the baby boomers are going to hell for. (sorry dad.)

Scar, I think pistol-whipping would be just fine for those who deserve it. Betty's a substance-abuser; likely incompetent to make good judgments.

Scarlette said...

No, dad, she is culpable. It's like saying which came first, the chicken or the egg?
She became a substance abuser because she's incompetent and makes poor choices. That's her own fault.
