Again, "faze" has yet to be defined.

The way it's pitched in this story, he asked for some broth, a potato, a fetus, and got himself a stew goin'.

In reality, I wouldn't doubt you're correct that he felt some emotion, but had to keep it in at the time.

I agree. This wasn't an unbiased story. It was clearly written to make Obama look like some scary "librul" to Conservatives or anti-choice individuals. On a personal level, I remember watching a documentary in school once about the Holocaust. I don't recall bursting into tears. I didn't storm out of the room. I didn't jump on my desk and rant about the evils of genocide. According to this Stanek lady, that would apparently mean I support Hitler's actions. That's how ridiculous it is.

Also, on a professional level, I can't picture relenting on your policies over one incident reflecting well on your judgment, or knowledge of the subject at hand. That's essentially what she asked him to do.

Still, that doesn't prove anything. We've all likely seen horrible things at some point or another that didn't manifest in an outward physical or emotional reaction, especially if we're in some sort of a professional situation.

Then even in your context it doesn't make any sense. Force the woman to have a baby that will kill her: both mother and child die.

Force a woman to have the child that means her family will starve: Kill the entire family so the baby can die along with them.

wtf?

I don't agree with this, do you have substantial evidence to back this up?

You don't seem to have a point. Obviously you haven't thought this through, and you're not happy that many of us have. You've been asked some very good questions and you haven't answered them.

This is understandable, I was just clarifying.Take the quote as is, instead of questioning a word in the quote.

No problem Although, even the whole quote, in this instance, doesn't prove anything other than this woman's opinion about Obama and his views.

I think he has done very well, and he clearly does have a point, just as you have a point.
