Obama’s Trouble With the Truth--and With Life


In the final presidential debate two nights ago, John McCain brought up Barack Obama’s shocking opposition, in the Illinois state senate, to a bill essentially identical to the federal Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.  Obama’s response began, “If it sounds incredible that I would vote to withhold lifesaving treatment from an infant, that’s because it’s not true. The–here are the facts.”

Where Obama is concerned, the incredible is often the exact truth.  For the real facts, turn to Robert George and Yuval Levin at The Public Discourse.  A supporter of infanticide and a liar.  (But who could be the first and not the second?)  And this man bids fair to be our next president . . .
