Pro-life politicians have often gone after the abortion provider, while pro-choice politicians like President Obama have rushed to its defense. In our exclusive interview, the President deflected the impact of the video sting.
“I think sometimes these issues get manufactured,” he said “they get a lot of attention in the blogosphere.”
Meanwhile the President believes the group’s work speaks for itself.
“You know my bottom line is I think that Planned Parenthood in the past has done good work. If there was a specific problem at this center, it should be addressed, but we shouldn’t get so distracted with some of these issues.”
First of all, congratulations Miss Rose! If Barack Obama personally took exception to something I’d done, I would be mighty pleased indeed. And second of all, those issues that we shouldn’t get distracted with include covering up an underage sex ring. That’s why it doesn’t matter too much what happens to the recent House amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. What matters is that these issues are now out in the open. This can only be good for those of us opposed to abortion.by
