Obama declares his clean cut, articulate presidential bid
From ABC News
Standing in freezing weather outside the historic capitol building, just steps away from where Abraham Lincoln used to practice law, another lanky Illinoisan will stand and declare his candidacy for president of the United States this morning.
Here is a sampling of Obama’s position on a few issues:
-Abortion: Favors abortion rights. As Illinois lawmaker, opposed restrictions on public financing of abortions.
Not only does he favor abortion rights, he thinks we all should pay for it.
-Global warming: Co-sponsored bill that would set mandatory caps on greenhouse gas emissions and raise energy costs. Plan would require emissions to return to 2004 levels by 2012 and to 1990 levels by 2020.
Easiest way to limit emissions of hot air is for the Global Warming Doomsayers to just shut the hell up..
-Health care: Wants universal coverage by 2012; details not specified.
Socialized Medicine… Just what we need another Government bureaucracy.
-Immigration: Voted to give illegal immigrants a route to citizenship after they pay fines and back taxes, learn English, satisfy a work requirement and pass a criminal background check. Voted for building a fence along Mexican border, and toughening requirements that citizens be given preference for jobs over guest workers.
Shamnesty for some, Tragedy for U.S.
-Iran: Proposed regional conference that includes Iran, Syria and other neighbors, aimed at stabilizing Iraq. In 2004 Senate campaign, held out possibility of military action against Iran if sanctions designed to stop its nuclear program did not work.
Wants to negotiate with terrorists…
-Iraq: Supports capping troop levels at 130,000, beginning withdrawal May 1 and completing pullout of combat brigades by March 31, 2008.
The choices are win or lose… Obama chooses to lose.
-Stem cell research: Supports relaxing restrictions on federal financing of embryonic stem cell research.
Embryonic stem cell research is already permitted and being done daily… the only difference is that Obama wants taxpayers to fund it… In all honesty if this research had the potential that its proponents proclaim don’t you think that Phizer, Squibb, & Johnson & Johnson would be funding it far more aggressively than they are…. Not if there is the possibility that the taxpayers will fund it…
