    This is a moving image.
    Note that the NRA is not mentioned here – that’s unusual.

    Fox and Limbaugh accused President Obama of using children as “human shields” and “political pawns” at a White House signing event on stronger gun laws.

    Of course, President Bush also often used children as “human shields” and “political pawns” at White House signing events.

    Here he is after signing veto to block legislation expanding embryonic stem cell research. The children onstage with the President were conceived from frozen embryos in fertility clinics (a procedure which, by the way, results in the destruction of as many as 400,000 frozen embryos a year due to being “unsuitable” or “unnecessary backups” for implantation.)

    corzak: good food for thought for several elements in the “pro-life” movement.

    “good food for thought for several elements in the “pro-life” movement”

    That’s why I mention it . . . I’ve been waiting for the ‘pro-life’ movement to go after fertility clinics with the ferocity they go after abortion clinics . . . still waiting.

    Their inconsistency implies that there is some other agenda besides “defense of personhood”. Or perhaps pro-lifers can justify leaving fertility clinics alone by abandoning personhood-at-conception in favor of personhood-at-implantation . . .

    well it is the intelligent way to counter an argument against someone. Since, unless you are a major hypocrite, you would also have an issue with someone on your side doing the exact same thing. But oooobviously you are an intelligent person able to see that.

    Ain’t it the truth? Why, just this morning I had to step over three of them, laying on the sidewalk, on my way to the store. You know how annoying it is when you get blood on your shoes.

    You’d think the democrats would be against abortion
    just for the mere fact that they are killing off future voters.

    In the years since Roe v Wade that would have been around 53 million potential voters. Just think what congress would look like today.

    “Except Bush wasn’t assaulting the Constitution”

    Except that he was. For instance, the ‘Patriot Act’, which allows the executive branch to neutralize the 4th and 5th Amendments, and by extension, neutralize the 6th, 7th and 8th Amendments also. Basically tears the guts out of the Bill of Rights.

    You might want to read up on it. Spend less time posting nonsense on comic strips. Here’s an overview to start:
    The Patriot Act in a Nutshell

    @churchillwasright

    A) Bush signed 291 Executive Orders. Obama has signed 147. So far hard to say who ‘prefers’ them more.

    B) So, you also disagree with commentor who said “Bush wasn’t assaulting the Constitution”.

    C) Agreed. Democrats guilty also. Which is why many people opposed the Patriot Act in 2001. “Camel’s nose under the tent”. Once given the power, any future president, no matter who he was, would find it easier to keep the power rather than surrender it.

    @churchillwasright

    Other “assaults on Constitution”:

    Cheney’s drive to push the “Strongly Unitary Executive Theory” even beyond the executive branch itself.

    “I believe in a strong, robust executive authority,” Cheney said in 2005, “and I think that the world that we live in demands it. The president needs to have his constitutional powers unimpaired.”

    To this end, Bush frequently used ‘signing statements’ to declare that provisions in the bills he was signing were “unconstitutional constraints on executive power”, claiming that the laws did not need to be enforced or obeyed as written. Bush used over 1,200 “signing statements” to selectively nullify new or existing laws.

    The laws he challenged – among the many – included a torture ban, and requirements that Congress be given detailed reports about how the Justice Department was using the counter-terrorism powers in the USA Patriot Act.
