Obama: 'I Can't Comment' on Gosnell Baby Murder Trial

Obama: 'I Can't Comment' on Gosnell Baby Murder Trial Daniel Halper April 17, 2013 9:10 AM

President Obama was asked about the Kermit Gosnell trial in an interview that aired this morning:

"Have you been watching the Gosnell trial? It's a Philadelphia abortion doctor accused of gruesome crimes. Are you following it, and do you think it animates a larger debate about abortion in this country?"

"Well, I'm familiar with it. I can't comment on it because it's an active trial," said Obama. "What I can say is this: I think President Clinton said it pretty well when he said abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. If an individual carrying out an abortion, operating a clinic, or doing anything else is violating medical ethics, violating the law, then they should be prosecuted."

Well that’s a first. He had an opinion on Prof Gates, on Trayvon. His reply is so nonchalant. You know, I really do believe that he has no concept of the value of human life and what it means to have a soul. Any human would be repelled and revolted by this. He’s not.

He can’t comment because the baby murder is black. Supposedly the same race as he. He’s Holders’ people and a rabid liberal out to make money off of murder. Obama can’t comment on that with which he believes.

His opinion is that if the baby’s head remained in the womb instead of being fully out, Gosnell could have done the same thing without being prosecuted.

No opinion? hundreds, perhaps thousands of innocent, helpless, defenseless American children slaughtered by this serial/mass murderer in most hideous ways, and this POS can’t find an opinion?

Ya’ mean his handlers haven’t written a script compatible with this moron’s opinion that they’ll let the sock-puppet say in front of a teleprompter.

Incredible! Thousands of babies mercilessly butchered by this animal, and our Kenyan-born illegal alien can’t find any comment to give. He came up with an opinion quickly on the Travon Martin killing almost immediately . . . No Opinion! A disgusting POS

Have you forgotten Obama used to study law, had a law liscence and even taught laws at school. He knows all about the court proceedings and such/////

Previous opinion of Obama: He's an evil, drug-addled communist thug, whose only redeeming feature is being too lazy to do as much damage to our country as he would like to inflict.

New opinion of Obama: He's an evil, drug-addled, gutless communist thug, whose only redeeming feature is being too lazy to do as much damage to our country as he would like to inflict.

Obama believes that no black person should be held accountable for their crimes, and that in any case it's not a crime to murder an unwanted baby before or after birth. He should proudly state what he believes - but he's too gutless to say all of that openly.

He voted in the IL senate to kill born alive babies of failed abortions, TWICE!

Liberals like killing babies, they think it's their choice.

To them it takes no more thought than choosing blue or black socks, either way, no difference.

funny how he has views on Zimmermann and Gates, even calling out the police for being stupid but when his own views look bad then it’s no comment, or like FT Hood a work place violence because a muslim did it.

The left surely know deep down they voted for a fairy guy who has no clue what he is doing whether Libya, Saudi getting the fast track through airports last week, to north Africa to guns going to drug lords and shooting a border agent debt and spending.

The man never ran a hotdog stand and now the left wants us to believe that he is running a country with great affect.

It’s like the corrupt media telling us that his wife has class, grace and is stylish while she barges in on the Queen and nearly man hugs her to bending over and showing all to her panty line showing all the time.

Concerts while our house is closed which we pay for to nice expensive vacations and spending our money is all what the oabma,’s know and do good.

I think President Clinton said it pretty well when he said abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.

First mistake was to even accept it as anything other than abominable. That aside, these leftist liberal progressives (to include those who also see abortion as a right or something that should not be denied by law) made damn sure they got one of these three items right. It is legal.

It is far from safe. The aforementioned court case is one of too many examples of abortion NOT being safe. And of course, it is NEVER safe for the baby...who ALWAYS (oops..most of the time) dies in the womb. And lets face it. 1,000,000 abortions a year (just here in the USA) is far from rare.

But we know you Mr. Obama as the Abortion President who voted to kill the child NO MATTER WHAT if the woman wanted that. Their blood is on you and your ilk.

He will interject himself into petty arguments all over the nation, and offer “beer summits” at the White House, yet he won’t comment on the disgusting and murderous acts that took place here? Give me a break!!! He would have been better off just avoiding the question rather than memorializing his appetite for murder by offering the “I can’t comment”. Typical leftist.

He can't comment? Funny, he had no problem commenting with his support for partial birth abortions and his opinion that his daughters shouldn't be punished with a baby. See, that's the difference; what he considers a punishment, we consider a blessing.

Well I hate to say this but the press coverage has been so PC. The only one who has spoken out is Kirsten Powers.

It boils down to two things that the press wants to avoid reporting - abortion and his race - period.

He WON’T comment because he supports everything Kermy did except maybe the jars and freezer part (but I am sure that doesn’t bother him that much either). This (below) he did not support. You make the connection:

1 AN ACT concerning infants who are born alive.

2 Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3 represented in the General Assembly:

4 Section 5. The Statute on Statutes is amended by adding
5 Section 1.36 as follows:

6 (5 ILCS 70/1.36 new)
7 Sec. 1.36. Born-alive infant.
8 (a) In determining the meaning of any statute or of any
9 rule, regulation, or interpretation of the various
10 administrative agencies of this State, the words “person”,
11 “human being”, “child”, and “individual” include every infant
12 member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any
13 stage of development.
14 (b) As used in this Section, the term “born alive”, with
15 respect to a member of the species homo sapiens, means the
16 complete expulsion or extraction from its mother of that
17 member, at any stage of development, who after that expulsion
18 or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of
19 the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary
20 muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been
21 cut and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction
22 occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean
23 section, or induced abortion.
24 (c) A live child born as a result of an abortion shall be
25 fully recognized as a human person and accorded immediate
26 protection under the law.

27 Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
28 becoming law.

He comments on everything else. We already know he sides with the doctor for taking care of the “burden”.

And we have a winner. Gosnell is doing nothing more than Obama said should be allowed when he was a state senator in Illinois.

Something OStumbles can’t comment on. This is a first. He jumped right in on the Cambridge Professor arrest and the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin shooting.

He already had commented on it when he gave his tacit approval for post birth “abortion” some time ago.

Liberals hide behind “I can’t comment because there is an ongoing investigation” when it suits them. They steal and open sealed court records when it suits them. Because they are psychopaths they never worry about the contradiction. It’s moving their hate filled agenda that counts most.
