Unreal: Carney says Obama ‘does not and cannot’ take position on Gosnell

President Obama always seems to have something to say. But when it comes to the ongoing trial of alleged baby murderer Kermit Gosnell, he’s suddenly gone silent.

That’s Press Secretary Jay Carney’s story, anyway, and he’s sticking to it. When Fox News’ Ed Henry asked if the president has been following the story and has any comments, Carney had this to say:

“The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial.”

Typical weaselly response from a typical weasel. What a perfect Obama spokesman.

Video of the exchange, via LifeNews:

According to Carney, “the president’s position on choice is very clear.” That part’s true, at least. As a state senator, Obama voted against Born Alive bills four times.

Carney also insisted that the president believes in “the basic principle that … abortions ought to be safe, legal, and rare.” If that’s really true, Obama should have no issue weighing in on the Gosnell case. What allegedly took place in Gosnell’s house of horrors was neither safe nor legal.

Why can’t the president comment, Jay? Is the case too local or something?


And so has this pathetic, shameful excuse for an administration. What a disgrace.



Obama ignores Gosnell horrors with media’s aid: Pesky babies didn’t ‘just come out limp and dead’

    I should expect nothing less from this president – but this makes me very sad for some reason. The constant disappointment in our ‘leader’ is taking its toll.

    • Dee

      Here’s the thing that’s really frightening – a large percentage of this country’s population is not disappointed with him, in fact they love him. What the heck is there to love????!! I’m beyond disgusted with humanity.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        It’s not as large a percentage as they would have you believe.

  • Garth Haycock

    If Obama cannot take a position on the Gosnell trial, for the sake of consistency, he can’t take a position on any of the incidents of mass murder, such as Newtown, Aurora, Tuscon, Ft. Hood, etc.

      According to Pelosi and Boxer, you don’t have to. They always said that “George Bush isn’t my president.” I’m pretty sure that works both ways.

    Maybe he thinks it’s possible someone else did it?

    There are no words for this despicable pos.

  • gekkobear

    If we can take action to save the life of even one child** We MUST do something!

    ** Unless that child survived a botched abortion; in which case butcher that little b*stard and hang his feet up on your wall; I don’t care about babies who SHOULD be killed.

    How hard is that to say? It’s really simple and matches his true opinion on the situation correctly.

    In June 2012 Pres Obama took no position on trial of abortionist Dr Steven chase Brigham, neither did Breitbart twitchy the five Nick Searcy etc. No hijacking MTV video awards,no massive campaign on Brigham.

    Uh-huh. Okay, it’s interesting how Obama injects himself into every other story out there, but not this time. Yeah, I’ve seen Obama’s voting record on partial-birth abortion from when he was a state legislator. Oddly, unlike with the current story, it was the one thing he wasn’t willing to vote “present” on. I think we can reasonably guess what Obama’s position on Gosnell is.

      I think we can reasonably guess what Obama’s position on Gosnell is.

      Full presidential pardon on January 19, 2017.

    Maybe the reason he has no position on Gosnell is because Jarrett and Soros haven’t told him what his position is yet.

    Eric Holder’s wife co-owns abortion clinic building run by indicted abortionist
    Thanks to pro-lifers Michelle Wolven and Catherine Davis, a small group of us have been on this story for weeks.

    While they were digging through online records of Georgia abortion clinics, they stumbled on the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife Sharon Malone Holder (both pictured right) co-owns with her sister an Atlanta area abortion clinic building.
    The building is located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Georgia.
    The business itself is called Old National GYN. Click on deed above and see below…

    The story was so big, Catherine handed it off to Watchdog.org reporter Troy Anderson.
    Anderson’s article, “Holder’s family papers over his ties to abortion doctor,” was published in Human Events today.
    Anderson’s story deepens beyond the obvious breaking news that Sharon Holder, an OB/GYN herself, co-owns a building – and has for many years – that operates as an abortion clinic.
    Clinic abortionist indicted on Medicaid charges
    What’s more, the abortionist at Old National, Tyrone Cecile Malloy, was indicted last year by a Georgia grand jury on charges of Medicaid fraud.
    The paper trail backward, according to Anderson:

    The same tax records show the building was formerly owned by Dr. Mack A. Jones, late husband of another of Holder’s sister-in-laws, Vivian Malone Jones. Her death, announced in an Oct. 14, 2005 obituary in The Washington Post, reported that she was Malone Holder’s sister.
    The other two sisters apparently inherited the building at that time.
    Paper trail cover-up attempt
    Anderson further detailed how, after he alerted the Holders and sister co-owner Margie Malone Tuckson 0f the information he had, requesting comment, the family quickly moved to put the abortion clinic building into a blind trust.
    Explains a lot
    Pro-lifers agree Holder’s ties to the abortion industry explain a lot – his attacks against pro-life activists and that he looks the other way on abortion industry skulduggery. Details Anderson:

    Critics say it may also explain why Holder has been eager to prosecute pro-life advocates who counsel women outside abortion clinics….

    “There is a clear conflict of interest when the man charged with pursuing those that abuse the system is also one who is engaged in some way with the business,” said Davis, whose organization brought the issue to the attention of Watchdog….

    In recent months, judges have blocked Holder’s efforts to punish pro-life supporters counseling women outside abortion clinics. In one case, Holder’s Department of Justice agreed to pay Mary “Susan” Pine $120,000 for its filing of an “improper lawsuit” against her, according to a statement by Liberty Counsel, an Orlando, Fla.-based nonprofit legal firm. Pine counseled women on the sidewalk outside a Florida abortion clinic….

    Karen Handel, the former secretary of state in Georgia and a former senior vice president of public policy for the Susan G. Komen Center, said she was “shocked” by the findings of the Watchdog investigation.

    “It certainly underscores the deep ties the Obama Administration has to the abortion issue,” said Handel, author of the new book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

    “This certainly seems to shed some additional light into why Obama and his team seem obsessed with protecting Planned Parenthood and abortion rights at the expense of other important issues in the country.”…

    Davis pointed to cases in which activists have sued Planned Parenthood for alleged Medicaid fraud – in Georgia, Iowa, Texas, New York, and Massachusetts – but where Holder’s Justice Department has failed to act.

    “The U.S. attorney general has not at all pursued a case against any of them, including this one in Georgia where his wife owns the property,” Davis said.
    Also add to the mix the DOJ’s October decision not to investigate an Indiana abortion clinic Allen Country Right to Life alleges is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    I am so disgusted and disturbed by this latest bit of gross hypocrisy that I simply have no words and am left with SMH and chocking on the bile that I cant get out of my throat.

    Obama’s worried about his abort votes coming home to roost with all the wall to wall coverage Gosnell’s trial has been generating. Do I really need to sarc?

    He won’t take a position because it:

    A) Is not about guns

    B) Does not promote abortion

    C) Does not involve a white conservative

    D) Is about a black doctor

    E) All of the above

    And what would have been the difference if Gosnell had SHOT the babies he killed? The heads of all libtards would be seen spinning around like a scene from the Exorcist. Would they applaud the “abortion” but denigrate the gun violence? What a bunch of F*ing hypocrites!
