Obama - The Slogan for the Day

The Catholic Thing has a good piece on the growing list of slogans and enduring non-truths put forth from the Obama administration on abortion at the ND commencement.

Speaking of non-truth slogans, I just heard another one this weekend that had me cringing.

Mr. Obama compared the inmates at Gitmo to 'human fetuses'. O'brother.

Anyway here's the article:

Obama and the Enduring Untruths:

Along with enduring truths, there are some remarkably enduring non-truths; certain slogans that curiously hold on over the years, treated earnestly as moral principles, but utterly wanting in substance. One of the most persistent surfaced again a week ago in the commencement address at Notre Dame. It was delivered by that man Robert Royal has referred to as “a Certain Person [speaking] at a Certain Catholic University.” The most radical pro-abortion president of the United States offered, in the most amiable way, to find common ground with the pro-lifers. “[L]et’s work together,” he said, “to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies.” He offered also to collaborate in “making adoption more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term.”
