The President’s (Insincere) Speech in Tucson

Very interesting opinion piece here by Bishop Thomas J. Tobin of the Diocese of Providence on the president’s speech in Tucson after the terrible shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six others, “Why I Wasn’t Impressed.”

Of course, I didn’t hear the president’s speech — I’m able to understand him better by reading the text of his speeches instead of listening live.  I cannot seem to exhume the image of Jimmy Swaggart, televangelist, when I hear that soaring rhetoric.  But I digress . . .

The point of his Excellency’s column is that the

“President Obama’s persistent and willful promotion of abortion renders his compassionate gestures and soaring rhetoric completely disingenuous . . .

“President Obama has enthusiastically supported the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade that has allowed virtually unrestricted access to abortion in our nation and has resulted in approximately 50 million deaths since 1973.

“President Obama has consistently surrounded himself with pro-abortion advisors, and has appointed pro-abortion politicians to key positions in the federal government, including his two nominees for the Supreme Court.”

That’s just a bit of the abortion advocacy of the Obama presidency – Bishop Tobin expands on it further.

In light of then Senator Obama’s abortion votes and statements, it is impossible to take him seriously on matters of life and death.  Cowboy Papist respects the office, and the man in the office today is described as being many things; but respected, he is not.  He is, however, a deadly hypocrite, and Cowboy Papist prays he doesn’t see a second term.
