Which calls for more courage: coming out of the closet, or dealing with the mess that’s left behind?

Presidents usually do not have the time to congratulate or commiserate with every citizen in the headlines, whether for an act of heroism, an academic achievement or a personal tragedy. Their phone calls are reserved for exceptional situations as for the widow of a soldier killed while trying to save the lives of others.

But under the Obama administration heroism is evolving. Read more…

Has he ever heard of Crisis Pregnancy Centers?

I remember being a teenager, growing up on the coast of Maine, and having heated conversations with friends about abortion. At some point in the discussion, I would be tossed a line that went something like: “You really don’t care about women. You and people like you don’t do anything for them.” My face would get red; I would sputter a bit, not knowing what to say (a common reaction for a teenage boy, the others being either sullenness or showy exasperation).

Sr. Carol Keehan and the very large Catholic Health Association network were instrumental in helping President Obama get the contentious health care overhaul passed. But his HHS mandate issued in January was a push too far, and they objected along with all the Catholic bishops. His alleged accomodation to their concerns got Sr. Keehan and the HHS back on board and gave him Catholic cover. Now, the CHA has reversed itself again. Like everyone who looked fully at the so-called ‘accommodation’ they saw that it wasn’t one. Read more…

It may have erupted in the Twitterverse and on MSM sites, but the only possible surprise element may have been the timing. Maybe.

The President Comes Out

May 10th, 2012 Comments off

By NRO Symposium

My personal intuitive (i.e., non-scientific, totally unprovable) beliefs are the following:

1. Obama has always favored the redefinition of marriage to remove the gender requirement. He has just decided that now is a favorable time to admit it. If I am correct, then he has been lying. This would make him a liar. Read more…
