Barack Obama: Throw Out the Baby and Save the Bathwater

When Barack Obama says “change,” he’s not talking about the baby’s diaper:

Speaking about sex education at an event in Pennsylvania Saturday, Obama said, according to the Christian Broadcasting Network, that he will educate his young daughters but “if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at the age of 16.”

Hey, Barry, there are lots of things I’d rather not be “punished” with for making a mistake, but that’s why they call ’em “mistakes.”

Obama’s the typical liberal politician refusing to tell people they need to take responsibility for the consequences of their mistakes and instead just calling those consequences “punishment.”

“Punishment” implies that there’s somebody outside the person who make the mistake doing some punishing. It’s a classic attempt to assign blame anywhere but the place it really belongs: with the individual who made the mistake.

So what is Obama’s remedy when somebody is “punished” by the consequences of their own mistakes? To keep it legal to punish the unborn. The punishment never seems to stop. But I’d have expected little more from somebody who places babies in the same category as STD’s.

Just for the record, “if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby” is the same reason I support congressional term limits.

Update: Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania. I hope he governs better than he bowls, because he rolled a 37. Geez, I took my kids bowling this weekend and my 7-year-old got a 65.

Barack’s pastor is of course blaming Obama’s horrible score on the racist white pins.
