Obama won’t comment on Gosnell case
Washington Post ^ | April 15, 2013 | Rachel Weiner

Posted on 04/15/2013 11:22:57 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

President Obama will not comment on the trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell because the trial is ongoing, a spokesman said Monday.

“The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial, so I won’t as well,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters when asked about the trial.

However, Carney said, the president is “aware” of the case. “Certainly, the things that you hear and read about this case are unsettling,” he added. “But I can’t comment further on an ongoing legal proceeding.”

Of course he had no problem commenting about his son Traycon’s case.

0bama and his fellow traveller Holder of the Just-us dept had no problem commenting voluminously on the Travon Martin killing, causing the resignation of a police chief and the indictment of an innocent man who was trying to defend himself from yet another hooded, trashy gangsta wannabe.

No commentary on how anyone "acting stupidly?"

No description of "workplace violence?"

Not even a
"shocked and outraged" comment?

That’s OK. You guys made your statement right there. We’ve all known Obama’s public policies supported “doctors” like Gosnell.

Of course, Obama had his yap going to try to make the Martin and Gates thing worse; because he loves riot, insurrection and division.

:: The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial ::

Someone should point out the following to Baghdad Carney...

“If I had a sone, he would look like Trayvon.”
“The police acted stupidly”

Both were postitional statements given in the initial stages of investigation with the intent of a state trial.

“The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial, so I won’t as well,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters when asked about the trial.

That statement alone says all one would need to know about the vile, perverted, evil, ignoramous that infests the White House, as well as his Demonic Party and propogandist enablers.

WOW! That's cool!

Hey, was that in effect during the George Zimmerman arrest and arraignment? Wait.... what? No, looks like he had a lot to say about that case.

Hey, I know: That HAD to be in effect when Henry Louis Gates Jr., a professor, was arrested for disorderly conduct!! Wait... what? No, looks like Obama said the police acted stupidly, and questioning the role race played in the arrest.

Okay, so it's obvious Obama is not at all averse to speaking about cases when they are unfolding and in arrest, arraignment, or trial phases.

So one is left to wonder, why can he not comment on THIS one?

Obama and all of Philadelphia and by extension Pennsylvania, knows that without the abortions, the brothers would have to be responsible. Being responsible would require some education and that would require effort.

I was thinking the same thing. Abortion is holy to democrats.

Just another one of those little things the party of death, the democrat party, turns a blind eye on. They will do the same with the murder of seniors with Obamacare.

Obama and the dems don’t care how they kill folks, just so they are dead.

Couldn’t he at least said all the black babies murdered would have grown up to look like his son Treyvon? Or that the Dr acted stupidly. I guess it’s above his pay grade.

Simple, he doesn't want to remind people that he's on the same side as Gosnell, plus he doesn't want the press to ever mention the dude again, and if he commented they might actually have to say something.......

———Abortion is holy to democrats.——

Actually, sex without recourse is the sacred cow.

Abortion is but a corralary

Why would Obama worry about dead babies, they don’t vote or pay taxes. Obama is only concerned with what affects him and his residency.

He has to keep the Cult of Death happy, so if he remarks on this case he would lose some of his base, if not all of it. He doesn’t want to lose the vacations, golfing, or parties he so enjoys.

Cute little white kids from Connecticut make for better political props for the NPR crowd and are more useful for taking away constitutional rights.

Bunch of black babies slaughtered by an abortion-lovin monster? Well he’s basically in line for a plumb appointment at the DNC.

I don't care what Nobama thinks.

I want to see 20/20, 60 Minutes, Primetime, Brian William's 30 Rock, and Nightline all talking about the Butcher of Philly.

I want an extensive expose on every program that purports to be the best TV news has to offer.

Are they gonna do it?

“What difference does it make?” This is but one of his mortal sins that probably reach to Alpha Centauri. Even if Hussein won’t admit he supports abortion (among billions and billions of other wretched disgusting positions), God knows his black heart and so do we. He and all his communist minions will burn forever in Hell.
