Regrettably, Bart Stupak (D-I’ll Believe Anything Obama Says) has caved and is the last person in America to rely on the words of President Obama when he makes a promise.
This is the end of it, unfortunately, and here’s hoping some of the other pro-life Democrats aren’t quite as gullible as he is.
Stalinization of Health Care here or there, as a pro-life Catholic myself, I cannot even express in words my disappointment in this good man’s mistake.

UPDATE: Congressman Stupak was just on Greta’s show and either could not or would not answer her direct question about the FACT that the president could just as easily rescind his Executive Order. I have watched him many times in the past several months, and have found him to be a man of great conviction and principle. I’m not a shrink, but what I see in him right now is a beaten man. I honestly do not think he believes himself that this is going to work, and that it is truly worth only the paper it’s written on (or worse, worth only the already-proven unreliable word of President Obama). I don’t know just what to think of this. I’ll go ahead and put it out there: Either I completely miscalculated the character of Stupak (least likely, I think), or his gullibility. Or, worst of all, there’s something else sinister going on. I guess we’ll see in time.
UP-UPDATE: Having just watched the spectacle of Congressman Bart Stupak disingenuously (the only word to describe it, given how much we’ve been through with him) demonizing the Republicans for having the temerity to expect him and others who voted for this pro-abortion to live up to their own votes, I owe our readers an apology.
I try to stay away from cynicism, but that’s no excuse for not having my eyes open. Congressman Stupak’s craven and dispicable words (and forthcoming spineless vote—they’re voting on the motion to reconsider as I’m typing this), combined with the below video, showing him declaring back in November that, at the end of the day, he’d still vote for Obamacare, even if he didn’t get his anti-taxpayer-funded-abortion language in the bill leads me to believe that I’ve been suckered by this man all along.
I should have made myself aware of this video long ago. Had I, I would never have used his possible hold-out position as a principled stand for life. I have let you down, and apologize.
