Lawmakers Question whether Obama violated law by backing pro-abortion Kenyan constitution
The Daily Caller ^ | 7/9/10 | Amanda Carey

Posted on 07/09/2010 6:51:13 PM PDT by Nachum

Republican Reps. Darrell Issa of California, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Chris Smith of New Jersey are calling for a probe to investigate whether Obama administration officials are violating federal law by using taxpayer money to lobby for a new constitution in Kenya that supports and legalizes abortion.

“The U.S. is spending taxpayer money on Kenya’s constitutional referendum,” Issa told The Daily Caller. “The underlying concern is that U.S. funds and efforts are being used to interfere in Kenya’s internal debate over abortion, which is part of the debate over the new constitution. There is evidence that U.S. funds are supporting groups and events with a pro-abortion agenda and that funds have been spent to advance a specific outcome on the referendum. If so, this would violate federal law.”

They might as well give out a weak fart in a hurricane.

Obama has a natural dark enough skin to make him unreachable.

Exactly my thought, he is just being patriotic and supporting his own country. Is this wrong?

If the Republicans can gain control of both houses, you'll see some fireworks.

So far he has been able to.

Look for the same idiots that elected him, re-elect him.

To wit: White guilt liberals on Wall Street, young Whites,and White college students.

Blacks and Jews do not comprise enough of the population to be a factor if they vote 100% for obama. It still goes back to the Whites.

Clinton sent Carville to Israel to run an anti-Bibi campaign awhile back. It’s not the first time these guys do something and then hand us the bill.

Yea, the brainwashed youth... they're a big factor. But there's no real 'there' there with them, tomorrow they'll be back to their iPods and politics won't matter... or so we 'hope'


I agree with that

Indeed it is. Heck zero went there and taught his cousin how to campaign and what to threaten/do if he lost, WHILE HE WAS A SITTING SENATOR! Completely illegal, but this usurper doesn’t let a little thing like the law, or the Constitution get in his way.

Look where he is concerating his speech making. Universities.The Democrats have abandoned the elderly as their voting base.They are planning on replacing them with illegals and youth. Unions will be the next voting bloc to go.

Perhaps the elderly may be catching on to what is happening. But it is too late for them now. They forgot one precept, when one sells one’s soul to the Devil, he always collects.

Why are we meddling in another country’s constitutional deliberations anyway? And why are we meddling in family decisions in another country?
