Donna Brazile Says Reversal of Mexico City Policy will "Save Lives"
CNN.com ^ | Aired January 25, 2009 | CNN Transcript

Posted on 01/28/2009 7:57:20 AM PST by raybbr

BRAZILE: Two point six million Americans lost their jobs last year. Do we want this president to fail in trying to create or save 4 million jobs, do we want this president to fail in trying to prevent more people from losing their homes? No, we don't. We want this president to succeed. We want every president to succeed because we're Americans.

BENNETT: It's rhetorical. If he's doing the wrong thing you don't root for him. If he's doing the right thing, sure. In general you want to give him a lot of room to move and Republicans don't have all the choices they would like to have because of limitations here of power.

But I do think Barack Obama does, by his statements, indicate he would like to have more consensus on this than a lot of us thought going in. And that's a good thing.

KING: You said a lot of these first moves were symbolic. One of the things he did was reverse the Mexico City Policy that allows U.S. taxpayer dollars to go to organizations around the world and here that give abortion counseling. That's not symbolic.

BENNETT: It's not symbolic. It's real. I think it's deeply regrettable. It happens. We've had it before as administrations change. But this is one clear demarcatable difference. And it happened on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

BRAZILE: It happened the day after.

But this will save lives. This will allow organizations to give people age-appropriate information about reproductive health services. So this is about saving lives, not about destroying them.

BENNETT: It may save some lives, it will take other lives.

Every ‘successful’ procedure results in at least one death. Only in liberaland would that be considered “saving lives”.

SAving lives? LOL. How many people (not babies in the womb) died because this wasn’t funded? I’d really like to know.

Bennett is a fool. Consensus means going along to get along as far as the Dems are concerned. The Dems have the votes [they won as they have said] so let them take both the plaudits and the blame for their programs. Reps who sign on to this monstrosity will live to regret it.

Gee, you certainly didn't feel that way with George Bush.

"Saving lives by promoting abortion." How silly of me to think Pelozi was the only idiot in this administration.

“liberal grand denial of the week.”

“Abortion saves lives.”

Almost as insane as Pelosi’s contraception saves money.

Excuse me for being blunt but what did politeness and decorum get the Jews of Europe-their own destruction?

Wake up conservatives and evangelicals: Obama and his merry men and women intend to feed you to the lions and destroy every vestige of your belief system and consign it to the scrap heap of history. In its place they mean to impose the most secular humanist, amoral ethical system that diminishes individual initiative and elevates to God-like status human sacrifice to the greater good.

Contraceptives are cheap...And these kids (Target market) know how you get pregnant.

Teach "NO!!" Same problem with just about everything with these kids...No one says "NO" anymore. It's "I can do anything I want".

Saving lives by taking lives.

Too bad they cant see how that works with death penalty cases.

Too bad they cant see that in solving the Guantanomo problem.

To Conservatives a baby is a chance for someone being borned to make the world a better place.
to a Liberal a baby is a burden on the society and should be aborted.
and the irony is that most of the babies being aborted would most likly be black and brown babies.
Sanger would be proud.

BRAZILE: ....... So this(abortion) is about saving lives, not about destroying them.

So murdering innocent black babies saves lives.

Brazile is one of of V.I. Lenin's "useful idiots"

Duirng the campaign someone called Bill Bennet's talk show and described Obama as socialistic. He about messed his pants and cut the guy off, and later admitted that Obama was "very very very liberal."

He didn't want to offend anyone by using the S-word so he used a childish circumlocution instead. Cowardly.

"We want every president to succeed because we're Americans."

Did this nappy headed political ho suddenly become an American, like Michelle?

They both bitched and worked against the last President......CONSTANTLY.

For the first time in my adult life -- I'm disgusted with what America has become.
