Heh: Obama hasnít signed Stupakís executive order on abortion yet
Hot Air ^ | MARCH 22, 2010 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 03/23/2010 6:47:37 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Our rooting interest here is that The One double-crosses him and doesn’t sign it at all, right? In theory, it’s a dilemma because conservatives want whatever meager protection for the unborn that Obama’s willing to give. But if you believe that the executive order’s a purely symbolic gesture that’s worth nothing in practice, then who cares if he signs it or not? Better that he doesn’t sign it, in fact, and proves once for and all to the suckers in the Democratic pro-life caucus just what an ignoble sellout Stupak’s deal turned out to be.

Not that they’d care.

In spite of my pro life views, I hope Barry doesn’t sign it. Serves Stupak right and it means nothing anyway even if he does sign it.

Lets all remember Obama signed an executive order to close GITMO by the rnd of his first year. We all know that story, and how it turned out.

Not exactly "nothing." 30 pieces of silver from the year AD 29, now worth $726,000 in United States dollars, allegedly to fund a small airport in northern Michigan.

IMHO, it was a ruse all the time. A red herring.

The Dems ‘Bag o’ Tricks’ is full and they always use them. They are never straight forward.

Stupak - ruse. He was gonna vote for it all along. Most like the others too.

Slander/whitewash Tea Party Rally - ruse. Planned all along to divert attention.

Smoke fill back rooms - ruse. Reid’s ‘Louisiana Purchase’, ‘Cornhusker Compromise’ and the North Dakota Kick-back’.

Caligula had nothing on these guys. Well maybe he was more arrogant, where they are more smug.

Dems always divert attention from themselves to do their machinations privately.

Stupak bent over and got packed by Obama on the flimsy promise that Obama would sign a meaningless executive order. What a fool! I hope those who voted to put “Stupak the Packed” in office feel as thoroughly embarrassed, stupid and used as “Stupak the Packed” must feel now.

Stupak never expected anything from an executive order? He was part of the plan. Just a distraction to make some believe that there was some hope that Obamacare would be defeated. It was the plan all along. And the GD democrats know that!

Yeah. Bet this was just Sun Tzu strategy — look like you are weak when you are really strong to confuse your enemy. Make it look like things are in disarray, then at the last second pull out your stinger and Wham — Commies win.

I have to wonder whether this is just a temporary oversight or a deliberate message to Stupak that his usefulness to The One has come and gone.

Stupak doesn't give a rat's rump.

He intended to vote all along - he was just holding out ‘til he got his piece of the pie...as were they all who pretended they might not cave.

Bills will now be decided solely on a “buy my vote” basis, not on the merits of the bill.

Of course he didn’t sign it yet, the reconciliation bill has not made it through to his desk and why would he give up the one lever he holds over Stupak?

The Order should be treated as meaningful, and the same for Obama’s failure to sign it.

Stupak the baby killer is far worse than Chamberlain. A few Brits I have talked to said it was all about England buying time to rebuild their military.

Stupak has no excuse.

For nothing?

Not listening to the news?

"Stupak pushes back against claims airport grant bought his vote By Susan Crabtree - 03/23/10 03:51 PM ET "

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/88645-stupak-pushes-back-against-claims-that-federal-airport-grant-bought-his-vote-on-healthcare

"three airports in his district received a total of $726,409 grants as the possible reason behind his last-minute "yes" vote. "

Gosh, he was a cheap sellout.

He was simply holding out for his piece of the pie.

He's going to sing as a save face for Stupak = but it won't be worth the paper it's written on. It will be rescinded or overridden long before the insurance kicks in.

And Stupak knows that.

Wowsers...Stupak got stupaked by Dear Leader. Who saw that coming?

(Try if you can to use stupak as a verb...in place of ‘sold out; caved; bullied’ in your posting blogging. It would be a great cosmic payback to have stupak forever sullied.)

If that is true, the both houses of congress did not pass the same bill.

There is a line from A Man for All Seasons that applies so well to Stupak.

Sir Thomas More had just been betrayed by Richard Rich.

Sir Thomas More: Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Wales?

I don't think Stupak was ever promised the executive order.

He invented it out of thin air to cover the payoff that Obama gave him for the airports in his district.

Or alternatively, Obama agreed to remain silent if Stupak claimed the EO was promised.

In any event, I doubt Obama ever intended to sign one. And if he does, he knows that it's unenforceable.
