Hypocrisy Redefined

Posted by Dave Blount at March 24, 2010 10:30 AM

Hold your jaw before reading further — this could cause it to drop hard enough to unhinge it:

Rep. Bart Stupak, the Michigan Democrat whose support for President Obama's health bill ensured it was passed into law Sunday, on Tuesday accused the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and pro-life groups of "hypocrisy" for condemning the executive order that sealed the deal.

This from the baby-killing phony who — after posturing righteously as a "pro-life" Democrat, as if such a chimera could exist — enabled passage of ObamaCare in exchange for some cash and the promise of an unenforceable executive order limiting taxpayer funding of elective abortion.

Stupak also said he suspected groups such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Right to Life, and others were actually "just using the life issue to try to bring down health-care reform."
"I question, did they want to protect the sanctity of life, or did they want to defeat health care?" he said.

You read that correctly: Bart Stupak is questioning the sincerity of those who want to protect the sanctity of life.

Here's why the alleged "hypocrites" are horrified by the bill Stupak passed:

[The National Right to Life Committee] called the Senate bill that passed the House on Sunday "the most abortion-expansive piece of legislation ever to reach the floor of the House of Representatives," in a letter to Stupak and other pro-life House Democrats last week, before the vote.
The Conference of Bishops, in a statement issued Tuesday, said that "the statute appropriates billions of dollars in new funding without explicitly prohibiting the use of these funds for abortion, and it provides federal subsidies for health plans covering elective abortions."

But that's fine by Stupak, because he can pretend he believes in the farcical (and so far nonexistent) executive order, as if he hadn't already admitted that he was going to vote for this abomination anyway.

Just when I thought my opinion of them couldn't get lower…
