Rest of title: "Stupak, on Defense, Compares Order to Emancipation Proclamation"
President Obama signed the Senate health care bill into law Tuesday. He did not sign the executive order on abortion negotiated with Michigan Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak in an 11th-hour arrangement that may well have saved the entire health care reform effort.
A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so. Stupak predicted Obama would sign the order later this week. The White House said only that Obama would sign the order "soon."
In two celebratory speeches Tuesday - one at the bill's signing, the other at the Interior Department with health care advocates - Obama said nothing about the abortion issue or the executive order.

Boy, did Stupak ever get rolled ... although not as bad as the constituents who voted for him.
What’s he going to sign it on? Toilet paper? And then wipe his butt on it? Because we all know it’s not good. It wont hold up. It’s a sick joke.
Nope. I think Stupak was in on this from the beginning. He was a planned distraction.
Stupak doesn’t care. He got his 15 minutes of fame.
It’s sitting in the same inbox as John Kerry’s 180 form.
LOL Stupid Stupak.
Fart Stupid was in on the game the whole time, he knew the EO was worthless, signed or not.
I don’t know how he lives with himself.
Actually this was just to give political cover to Stupak.
” I think Stupak was in on this from the beginning. He was a planned distraction.”
I agree. It was all a magician’s trick, to distract people. The fix was in.
Stupak as Stupak does......
STUPAK = KAPUTS
Stupak is so stupid.
Sell your soul, the check is in the mail.
How the hell do these people get elected?
I am going to call stupid in the morning, and ask about this.. 1-877-SOB U SOB, will get u to the capitol office free..
It was nothing but political cover for Stupak’s sorry ass. So when did the President get authority to use executive orders to rescind specific parts of legislation? If this is constitutional, then why was there a fuss over line-item vetos? We are living in a banana republic with no accountability and no media scrutiny.
Now, THAT made me laugh.
