Obama said he was open to thinking about a run for the White House in 2008. And that started a barage of questions.
Amazingly, some folks had never even heard of the junior senator from Illinois, nor his career-changing keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention that set the political world ablaze for Barack.
People want to know about Obama's wife and the like.
I already know he was born August 4, 1961 (making him 46 as of this update), is biracial (with a Kenyan dad and white mom from Kansas who can trace her ancestry all the way back to Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy) and that his wife Michelle is an amazing lady.
All I wanted to know was:
Is Barack Obama pro-life?
Unfortunately, the Google-butt out there claims Obama's voting record shows he's "100% pro-choice, even including late-term, partial-birth abortions."
Say it ain't so, Barack... Please!! Hurry and say it ain't so!
...but looks like it is, according to excerpts from Barack's memoir.
And according to the October 23, 2006, issue of Time sitting open on my computer desk, all marked with black ball-point underlines, with a Barack Obama cover article and the excerpt from his book quotes Obama as telling a pro-life man that Obama is a Christian.
As far as supporting abortion, Obama said: "I told him I understood his position but had to disagree with it. I explained my belief that few women made the decision to terminate a pregnancy casually...that I feared a ban on abortion would force women to seek unsafe abortions..."
Barack is fair in his struggles over the issue, and I'm glad he gave the man time and heard him out. Barack admits to changing the staunch pro-abortion speak on his website, which he claims was written by his staff, but is still pro-choice. Such a nice word for such a horrific procedure...
Mr. Obama, may I lead you on over to my "We Had Abortions, Too...And Now We're Pro-Life" piece?
Barack is so intelligent, sooo well-read and well-versed in literature.
He's refined, he's an amazing writer. He's quick-witted and funny. He's everything you'd ever want in a president.
Why? Why? Why???!!!!! Must he be pro-choice!
Damn it all to hell, as my people used to say.
Oh well, I just may vote for Barack Obama anyway...though he believes in abortion.
I'm starting to trust that he's a Christian man who's thought thru the issue greatly.
We'll see come Election Day. After I pray and pray and pray...
