Morning Joe Covers Gosnell TrialóBut Ex-Gov. Rendell Claims He Knew Nothing
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/15/2013 5:46:14 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Credit Joe Scarborough not just for devoting a significant Morning Joe segment to the Gosnell abortion-murder trial today--but for declaring that he will have a reporter covering the trial--Joe Slobodzian of the Philadelphia Inquirer--back again tomorrow and throughout the week.

Ed Rendell—who was governor of Pennsylvania from 2003-10 while many of the horrors unfolded and the clinic went uninspected—was on today's Morning Joe panel. Scarborough questioned Rendell as to how this could have happened on his watch. Rendell claimed he knew nothing of the goings-on in the abortion clinic, that it was a question of bureaucratic bungling, and that he came under no pressure from abortion advocates to look the other way.

The Pennsylvania department of health did receive complaints...and dropped the ball. (understatement) And these are the people who will run our healthcare?????

Gosnell should be burned at the stake. I’ve never seen a more revolting account in my life.

Rendell didn’t know because abattoirs don’t officially exist in Philly. And he is a consummate official.

This will surely cause liberals to want to vote for some common-sense limits on abortion, right? After all, isn’t this a Sandy-hook-esque wake-up call in reverse? Suuuuuuure...

I'll be happy to douse him with the gelatin-petroleum mix. I want this to burn for a very long time.

The last 6 Governors and their state attorneys general have a serious problem here!

The nefarous King Herod of Matt 2:16 was a good guy compared to our “kings” who have murdered 50 million American babies since 1973 Roe vs Wade (CDC as reported in Wiki). Many would have passed as Hussein’s son and voted Democrat. Evidently the minorities don’t need any more voters now that they own the government and they would rather kill off any future dividers of the spoils.
