But Katherine Lopez told us we should all be thanking Bart Stupak for his hard work for the pro-life cause. Man, did he really take some gullible conservatives for a ride.

In a post after this at the Corner, Yuval Levin says the executive order is no different than the language already in the Senate bill, and there are NO protections in the Senate bill text against taxpayer funding of abortions.

an Executive Order is useless.
it was a device used by President Bush who was latter over ridden by President Obama.
Rep. Stupak was rolled by Speaker Pelosi and Barry.
The US House will be rolled by the US Senate when they don’t pass the House changes.
the double crossing has only begun….

Dilettantes like Krauthammer and Brit Hume are simply slower responding, but knee pad wearing sycophants, same as the hard core sycophants like Chrissy “up my leg” and all the others.

Oh come on! Stupak has been looking for a face saving reason to vote for this bill since day one. Stupak can later claim that either Obama let him down or that the courts did. He will have been able to save face on the abortion issue. Or at least among the voters that are to stupid to know better.

Present Obama, aka the liar in chief, gave Bart his word on abortion, which by the way is not worth the hot air it takes to sound the words, and also used the “id” letters missing in his title to replace the ak in Bart’s last name.

Why do we need state legislatures?
Why do we need a federal congress?
IF the president and the court are allowed to make law, and make any type of law that they simply wish to be, completely out of thin air, with no Constitutional mandates, and without any Constitutional requirements or restrictions of any kind at all, why are we going through the motions every two years to have elections at all?

#11, Yes, and the correct response is Impeachment.
What Clinton did was illegal, but stupic and he was impeached. What our current dirtbag is doing is illegal, and is the equivalent to treason.
In October 2010, vote for no one who will not Impeach is sorry @ss

What good is impeachment if he can’t be removed? You need 67 in Senate. GOP won’t even take the Senate.
Bill Krystal said this would not pass. Rush said they did not have the votes (Friday) We need new pundits. Dick Morris is working for the other side. I’ve had it.

Why the anger at the Republicans ? They don’t have the numbers to stop this. But, they great tremendous credit for trying to. Stupak was always going to fold , it was just a matter of when. A Democrat from dog catcher to school board to city council member on up … must be voted out at every opportunity. The only thing bipartisan about this disaster is opposition to it.

Stupak is either stupid or evil … then again perhaps he’s both. I hope that his opponents in Michigan won’t let him off the hook. They should ask why his ethics and personal honor were for sale. Of course the correct answer is that he’s a Socialist (aka Democrat).

Tie this pig of a bill up in the senate, and if unsuccessful there, in the courts. Play it like a death sentence. Killers sentenced to death are able to fashion appeal after appeal, postponing the death sentence for decades. Let’s do the same thing here.

The Halfrican can be legally removed, along with Pelosi and a couple of others who were complicit in the “natural born citizen” issue coverup. It can be done in a matter of a couple of days if there is a judge with a clear conscience, a pure heart, and American love of country and a brass…. spine who has the guts to see it through to the finish:he can be escorted out. A narcissistic tyrant is reaching for a throne here and must be revealed for what he is. God Bless America, please.

Coward. Definition: Choosing Political Cover over Moral Integrity.
Stupak knew an EO is trumped by the Law and can be undone. he knew it isn’t worth the paper the Marxist signed.
Stupak is a Coward. And a Baby Killer.

Why does this place turn into doom n gloom every time something political does not go our way?
Disappointment? Yes. Sadness? Yes. Anger? YES!
But, please. This talk of impending doom is so defeatist. Conservatives are known for feeling this country can survive almost anything. But have some political issue not go our way, and well, there goes the American Experiment, down the toilet.
Why do we give up so easy?
Read about what General George Washington had to go through in 1776 and 1777. Talk about having reasons to just throw in the towel!
Our Founding Fathers faced much more adversity then we ever have collectively. They looked at impossible odds, and instead of saying “Why?”, said “Why not?”
Yes, this is a setback. But every setback is not Armageddon. Not every setback is the work of Satan on Capitol Hill. This is the mechanisms of democracy. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But you always live to fight another day.
What we need is sober reflection, not emotional hysteria.

He can say he was lied to and not responsible.

First of all, Stupidpak didn’t “get rolled.” That little Brown Shirt was in the bag from the git-go. Not a doubt in my mind. All his blithering about abortion was mere b.s. and spin in order to build up some street cred for his next election.
Second, I keep reading the question “why the anger at Republicans?” Well, it’s pretty simple for those not carrying the I.Q. of Cheese Whiz between their ears. Had Bush I and Bush II not behaved like crazed, spend, spend and more spend socialists—we wouldn’t NOW be looking at “The Last Days Of Pompeii by way of South Michigan.” We’d at least have a balanced congress to fight the lost war.
Once this Nazi goon and his grinning minions all smile and give the “Seig Obama” salute at the end of the signing—get your handy pocket calculators out, do some quick math and figure the best you can if you’ll have enough money and resources left when Obama’s official “Stamp Out The Honky” Holocaust kicks in over the next few years.
Don’t delude yourself. Once this slimey cretin puts pen to document—America (as we knew it) will be on its death bed. And all the whining, moaning and “wait until November” fantasy will be a waste of your decreasing breath. You see, Dilbert, after today, the Republicans begin their slow slide into CYA mode, while the rest of us will be tapping those handy calculators trying to see if we’ll have enough resources to live out our final years without having to sell the farm just to meet the IRS bill and keep Nancy and her White House gerbils warm in winter.
Meanwhile—those 16,000 new IRS agents are drooling to grab your payments.

Bart Stupak caught on tape at Town Hall meeting
“”If everything I want [is] in the final bill, I like everything in the bill except you have public funding for abortion, and we had a chance to run our amendment and we lost. OK, I voted my conscience, stayed true to my principles, stayed true to the beliefs of this district, could I vote for healthcare? Yes I still could.”
