I don’t agree with Obama on very much except I like the idea of ‘change.’ I’m kind of flexible that way, and I get tired of stuff easy.
Except French toast. But that’s a another story.
Anyway, since he has not been clear on what the changes would be if he were president, I can’t vote for a man who holds such vague ideals. I also have difficulty voting for someone whose whole name shows up as 2 or 3 misspelled words in my spell checker. But that’s another story.
A day or so ago Obama spoke from the heart [YouTube video clip], clearing up any misunderstandings as to where he and I differ so greatly:
â€œLook, I got two daughters â€” 9 years old and 6 years old,â€ he said. â€œI am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I donâ€™t want them punished with a baby. I donâ€™t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesnâ€™t make sense to not give them information.â€
–Barack Obama, March 29, 2008
Punished with a baby?
And the other punishment he could think of was a sexually transmitted disease? These two come to mind as, by implication, similarly overly-severe punishments?
Man-o-man, do we ever see things differently. It is just so sad that anyone would think that way — and I know many people do — but horrible if that person were to be the most powerful person in the Free World.
I don’t like his concept of “mistake” nor of accepting responsibility for a mistake.
What happened to the concept of children being a blessing… even more so on the heels of a mistake? That’s called grace.
