Spin. Spin. Spin. He voted present, not no, or yes. He is for infanticide, and you cannot spin it into anything else. He was careful to vote present so he would not be held responsibile, but he was the only one to speak against the bill. Spin it all you like, the man is evil!!
There is no "spin", you moron.

Every claim you've made has been a lie.

No spin. That's a fact.

Ive demonstrated that IL law NEVER allowed infants who survive botched abortions to die.

I've given the TRANSCRIPT of the speech you cited, to demonstrate that your claims about it were absolute lies.

YOU'VE embraced the most vile, dishonest spin from the right, and you cling to it even after Ive shown it, without question, to be completely false.

That confims that you are a pig-eyed, stupid, lying moron.

Again. Read it real slow. He was the only opponent of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. I know the bastard would like to pretend he can have it both ways, but he cannot!!

Again. You are a lying pig-eyed, stupid POS.

YOUR claim: "It was a straight forward bill, allowing Doctors the opportunity to take a viable baby into care, and give the child an opportunity at life."

Yet as I just PROVED, Obama was speaking specifically about pre-viable fetuses... which is the entire point.

Now you say he was the "only opponent" of the BAIPA in IL. Which is a complete, utter, and total lie.

And most importantly-- it is a FACT that viable fetuses who survive botched abortions have been given FULL PROTECTION of the law since 1975, and the BORN ALIVE PROTECTION ACT OF IL.

Simple question: do you understand that this is our state law, or not?

Simplier question, do you understand he was the only one, the only state senator speaking against the bill. That is what I am talking about. Who knows what you are talking about. He cannot have it both ways. He is what he is, an evil little man who only knows kiling babies no matter what position they are in when they are born when the abortion does not work. We can do this all day, and you still wouldn't understand. I don't have any more time for the mentally challenged.

Hey, you lying POS. You've been told the facts repeatedly, and called out on your blatant, willful, lies.
Let's settle this once and for all, shall we? The following is an excerpt from the IL Abortion Law of 1975-- which remains in effect today, as it was when Obama was in the IL Senate. This text is taken from the official state of IL website:
"(b) Subsequent to the abortion, if a child is born alive, the physician required by Section 6(2)(a) to be in attendance shall exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as would be required of a physician providing immediate medical care to a child born alive in the course of a pregnancy termination which was not an abortion. Any such physician who intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly violates Section 6(2)(b) commits a Class 3 felony.
(3) The law of this State shall not be construed to imply that any living individual organism of the species homo sapiens who has been born alive is not an individual under the "Criminal Code of 1961," approved July 28, 1961, as amended.
(4)(a) Any physician who intentionally performs an abortion when, in his medical judgment based on the particular facts of the case before him, there is a reasonable possibility of sustained survival of the fetus outside the womb, with or without artificial support, shall utilize that method of abortion which, of those he knows to be available, is in his medical judgment most likely to preserve the life and health of the fetus."

Now, the ONLY real question is.... will you stop lying, now?
Your post has nothing to do with Obama voting to let a baby die with no aid during a failed abortion......this clown is evil.

NOthing positive from the GOP??? Why is this news. They have had nothing positive for years and someone just now noticed it?

No positive news? This administration has nearly bankrupted the country. They have killed the very jobs we need for increased revenue to support the government, and you want positive news. Well, here is some positive news. When the Republicans are elected to replace the current government in November you will see a real recovery, real jobs created, real increases in tax revenue, and it won't be a point or 2 per quarter. These stupid officials have had ample time to do something to help the country, and all they have done is vacation, party, and improve their golf score. It is time to send them back to Chicgo where they belong.

What does government cost?

Well, under President O'Bama's newly released budget, and based upon those currently working, it will only cost about $25,000 per working stiff to cover the budget.
Hmmmmm.
Maybe the answer is TOO MUCH!!!!
With the nation's median income of $50K, looks kind of dire for America.

Food stamps for everyone! It's on the President!!

You can't get food stamps if you make $50,000. No, you have to be pitiful. No, you pay for the food stamps if you make $50,000. I read an article that said if you took advantage of all the Government freebies, a family of 4 could make $38,000. a year in freebies. Section 8 rent, food stamps, EITC, free healthcare, free education, and on, and on, and on. without ever leaving the house. No wonder people like the Democrats so much. The Republicans would make them work.

Let's cut through the nonsense and lies here, dummy-- and focus on a single point:

Since the eitc is a tax rebate for the working poor, how exactly can one get it "without leaving the house".

Yeesh you're an idiot.

They have to leave the house for the rebate, but the rest of the freebies can be had just by breathing. Some of it might not be forever; It seems in some states that are running out of money, and looking for ways to save some, they are going to drug test welfare recipients. If they are using they lose their check. It is for their own good. They will have to seek help to get their checks back.

How can they have a positive vision knowing the Obungler will leave office after having spent $5 trillion dollars, and left nothing but receipts from various vacation sites behind. He fought, but lost the Iraq war, he expanded, and is losing the Afghanistan war. He gave most of the middle east to the Muslim Brotherhood, he killed 5.5 million American jobs, he has failed at every step he has taken, and the Repubicans have to pick up the pieces. Obama is a worse President then Jimmy Carter, and for the same reasons. Total incompetence.

I guess they don't get the rebate, because God knows they aren't going to get a job.

But I've already proven, beyond question, that you are a liar.

Obama NEVER "voted to let a baby die with no aid during a failed abortion"... because babies who survive botched abortions have been PROTECTED BY IL LAW FOR FORTY YEARS!!

You can say or spin it however you want to, but the facts remain.
