Time to Celebrate! … ?

Today I took my parents and kids to the Henry Ford Museum; Target was hosting free admission in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day. The air was electric with excitement — so many people clearly believe this new administration is something to celebrate.

Oh, how I wish I could share their enthusiasm. If it had been Alan Keyes, say, I would have been singing right along. As it was, I could only breathe a prayer for a little less resentment, a little more grace.

On the news tonight, the anchor confirmed that the “Obama team” has been meeting regularly in order to get in place some crucial bits of legislation. Not surprisingly, one of the first will be signing FOCA into law.  I can’t help but think of the millions of children whose lives are going to be wiped out thanks to this particular “spirit of change.”

    yes, but the prolife group is mobilized and energetic in ways never seen before.

    (not to be disrespectful to the new Pres)
    the single fastest way to unite a group of people and get them motivated to work hard is to give them a common enemy. Obama’s announcement about the FOCA seems to have done just that and THAT could change the face of our nation for the better!!


  2. FOCA hasn’t been re-introduced into Congress in this new session; therefore Obama cannot sign it yet. There is time to prevent it.


    • As the article itself points out, President Obama has no one but himself to thank for the furor. As he no doubt realized when he made that (in hindsight) ill-advised pledge to PP, FOCA represented far more than a single piece of legislation. This article represents nothing but “spin” and damage control. If it were “no big deal,” I doubt the (then) candidate would have made such a big deal about it in the first place — why mention it at all?
