Obamateurism of the Day « Hot Air

Obamateurism of the Day « Hot Air: "First, no one is saying that “we should get rid of Planned Parenthood,” as Obama claims.  People oppose giving federal dollars to Planned Parenthood because their core business is abortions.  It’s their profit-driving activity, not handing out contraception, and certainly not performing mammograms, to which I’ll return in a moment.  Planned Parenthood should be able to operate on their own, just like any other business, and taxpayers shouldn’t have to subsidize it to keep it alive.  Obama’s claim is a strawman argument that amounts to a statement that a lack of federal funding equates to criminalization, which is ludicrous as well as demagogic."

Obama torches an army of straw men.
