President Obama said what?

I don't normally comment on political happenings as this blog is really an outpouring of my spiritual journey.  And it's not that I am short of opinions, because if you have read my blogs or come to know me, you will know that my 10.5 (extra wide) finds its place in my mouth more often than I like.  However, on this historic anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I think I must comment...or rather share the insights from Dr. Mohler's blog:   

"This past Saturday, on the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, President Barack Obama issued a statement that is remarkable, even for presidents who support legalized abortion. The President’s statement included not one word that indicated any recognition that abortion is in any case or in any sense a tragedy. There was not even a passing reference to the unborn child. President Obama did not even use the language used disingenuously by President Bill Clinton — the pledge that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.”

Ever since Barack Obama emerged on the national political scene, he has been promoted and protected by a corps of preachers and religious leaders who have tried their best to explain that he is not so pro-abortion as he seems. Nevertheless, his record is all too clear. In his article, “In His Own Words: A Radical Pro-Abortion President,” Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. asks, “How can any President of the United States fail to address this unspeakable tragedy?”"  Read the details in Dr. Mohler’s blog, which is often updated several times a day.
