Obamababble on Freedom April 28, 2012

Posted by geoff in News.

The President attempts to interpret the GOP’s minimal government interference philosophy:

This contraception fight in particular was illuminating. It was like being in a time machine,” Obama told the crowd, many of whom had purchased tickets that cost $1,000 to attend. “Republicans in Congress were going so far as to say an employer should be able to have a say in the health care decisions of its female employees. You know, for a party that prides itself on being rabidly anti-regulations of almost any kind, for folks who claim to believe in freedom from government interference and meddling, it doesn’t seem to bother them when it comes to a woman’s health.

This was an amazing and amusing contortion of logic. Ignoring the fact that the GOP doesn’t pride itself on being “rabid” on any issue, we’re left with these corrections to his confused nonsense:

  • Employers weren’t asking for a say in health care decisions
  • Forcing employers to pay for birth control was a decrease of freedom for business
  • Forcing employers to pay for birth control had no impact on women’s freedom
  • The fact that Obama is blithering about the issue means by definition that the government is “interfering and meddling”

This guy was a law professor?

Somehow, Obama equates employer resistance to payment with federal regulation. I don’t get that.

He was handed a “lecturer” spot at the university, taught a few classes. His collegues viewed him as lazy. He was no “professor.”

Obama just reads whatever his speechwriters put in his teleprompters.
Usually it is full of straw men.
This time was no exception.
Starting with ”You know…..”
