Make That a 101% "Pro-Choice" Rating

The editors of The Washington Times note:
... Mr. Obama's record on abortion is radical and extreme — even by the standards of his own party. He voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion and criticized the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the ban; he voted against prohibitions on taking a minor across state lines for an abortion; and most appalling of all, he voted against providing legal protection for babies who survive an abortion. Mr. Obama's inability to recognize the inhumanity of his position staggers pro-lifers: Partial-birth abortion is infanticide because the baby's brains are extracted during birthing. Mr. Obama does not even support providing legal protection for babies who survive an abortion. For his unbending pro-choice stance, the Illinois senator received a 100 percent score from NARAL in 2005, 2006 and 2007...
My Comments:
Make that a 101% "pro-choice" voting record because, on the issue of denying legal protection for babies who survive an abortion, Obama went even further than the abortion lobby was willing to go.

Yes, the man that Doug Kmiec and so many others seem to believe will seek "common ground" with pro-lifers has the dubious distinction of likely being the first presidential candidate ever to be MORE pro-abortion ... excuse me, "pro-choice" ... than the abortion lobby itself.

This is what absolutely staggers me about Catholics who try to defend Obama on the abortion issue: their arguments consistently--nay, studiously--ignore the Senator's actual record.

Apparently faux-moderate rhetoric, a concerned look and fairy dust wrapped up in a sash that says "New Politics" are supposed to cancel that out.

Spare us the spin--just say you think the war is worse than abortion and have done with it. I disagree, but at least there's an intellectual leg to stand on. Much less self-beclowning that way.

C'mon, the Obamamessiah is a sure Catholic natural.
