Still at the top of the news is the dishonest ad put up by Barack Obama’s super PAC which implied that Mitt Romney was indirectly responsible for the death of cancer patient Ranae Soptic after the closing of the GST Steel plant in 2006.
It is now known that Mitt Romney was not managing the plant when Mrs. Soptic died and the Obama super PAC has as yet offered no apology to Governor Romney for their blatant lies.
The Dems are saying that the GOP is making too much ado about it, but it was not until it became a national issue that Obama said anything. He claimed he had no knowledge of what his PAC was disseminating. Here is a case of a whopper morphing into a double cheeseburger right before our eyes!
Life and death rise far above mere op-eds and opinion pieces which is why we want to view only facts as they are available. It is a comparison we will make here and no more. The disparity between Mr. Obama and Mitt Romney begs to be carefully scrutinized especially as it relates to deaths that may have been caused indirectly by either candidate.
As stated, it is now known that Governor Romney was not responsible for Ranae Soptic’s death directly or indirectly. The death count for Mitt is zero. As also stated the apologies offered to the Governor also stand at zero.
For Mr. Obama the first death that may be indirectly caused by the president is that of Border Agent Brain Terry. Eric Holder’s Justice Department records are hidden under protection of executive privilege at this moment, but in the court of public opinion he is directly responsible for Terry’s death. The moment to show the world that he is not culpable has passed into the realm of obfuscation and secrecy; Terry has passed into the realm of eternity. The count for Mr. Obama starts at one.
Approximately 300 ordinary Mexican citizens were also snuffed out by the mis-dealings of the botched gun running scheme of Mr. Holder’s Justice Department. This also falls indirectly to Barack Obama. The count for the president now stands at about 301.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit in in US District Court against the DOJ, the FBI and the CIA related to the killings of three American citizens by drone. They were not charged, arraigned or given the right of defense. One was a 16-year-old boy. Anwar al-Awlaki, his son and Samir Khan were executed without trial. Yes, they were suspected members of al-Qaeda, but all three were American citizens. The count for Barack Obama now stands at 304.
It’s back to the border for yet more deaths which today are mounting at an incredible rate because the president has instructed ICE agents not to enforce the law. Amazon’s askville website says, “Illegal aliens are killing more Americans than the Iraq war, says a new report from Family Security Matters that estimates some 2,158 murders are committed every year by illegal aliens in the U.S. The group says that number is more than 15 percent of all the murders reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the U.S.” The count for Barack Obama is now at 2,462.
Finally we come to the great scourge we know as abortion. Mr. Obama is a pro-choice president who has done more to further that cause than any single president before him. No one who supports the death of the unborn can escape culpability. By any code of God or man, taking lives is immoral and anyone directly or indirectly involved in the deaths of the unborn will at some time in the future most certainly be held accountable.
The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform has compiled statistics based on information gathered from several pro-choice organizations and the Alan Guttmacher Institute and Planned Parenthood. In the United states 3,700 abortions are performed daily for a grand and shameful total of 1.37 million per year.
Having stated that, I will refrain from opinion; I will only quote from Christ’s words about children to show that the aspect of culpability is a foregone conclusion and does not depend on anyone’s view of it, including mine.
Christ said, “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18: 6)
This is the record and it serves as a warning to those who would loosely accuse a candidate of anyone’s death directly or indirectly. In the case of Obama’s super PAC they may want to look a little closer to home before falsely accusing Governor Romney. Now the count for Mr. Obama is off the map.
In an article about Obama’s attempt to suppress the military vote author, Editor David Kupelian says that at the top of Obama’s two pronged “slash and burn” re-election campaign are these two strategies,
1.) “Tell astonishingly bold lies about your opponent;”
2) “Bribe the heck out of all your constituencies in hopes of cobbling together a winning voting coalition in November.”
We must add yet two more obviously overlooked strategies.
1.) Steer clear of those who are connected to religion, or quote scripture so no one will see that you and your super PAC are operating with the collective morality of a clan of yelping hyenas.
2.) Throw a lot of punches in every direction without regard to decency, convention or truth. Then hope that your constituents and sycophants are sufficiently distracted or ignorant of the rules attached to sport of pugilism (boxing) and won’t notice you have just thrown an intentional, rule breaking, un-sporting and extremely nasty - very low blow.
