Unreal: Carney says Obama ‘does not and cannot’ take position on Gosnell


President Obama always seems to have something to say. But when it comes to the ongoing trial of alleged baby murderer Kermit Gosnell, he’s suddenly gone silent.

Obama has commented on everything, from NCAA brackets to Five Guys to Trayvon Martin. But he can’t be bothered about infanticide. #Gosnell

— Kevin Eder (@keder) April 15, 2013

That’s Press Secretary Jay Carney’s story, anyway, and he’s sticking to it. When Fox News’ Ed Henry asked if the president has been following the story and has any comments, Carney had this to say:

“The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial.”

Typical weaselly response from a typical weasel. What a perfect Obama spokesman.

Saying he can’t comment on #Gosnell isn’t the worst thing Obama has done, but it might be the most transparently hypocritical.

Video of the exchange, via LifeNews:

According to Carney, “the president’s position on choice is very clear.” That part’s true, at least. As a state senator, Obama voted against Born Alive bills four times.

Evidently,”Obama has no position on the Gosnell trial”..because he supports the killing of infants before & after birth!! Sick! #tcot #ccot

Barack Obama can’t comment on #Gosnell because the trail would lead back to his own votes in the Illinois senate.

Carney also insisted that the president believes in “the basic principle that … abortions ought to be safe, legal, and rare.” If that’s really true, Obama should have no issue weighing in on the Gosnell case. What allegedly took place in Gosnell’s house of horrors was neither safe nor legal.

Why can’t the president comment, Jay? Is the case too local or something?

When Obama can cash in politically on a trial in progress, he can’t run to the press fast enough.. but not for children murdered by #Gosnell

“I cannot comment on an ongoing murder case.” – Obama, handing the keys to his teleprompter to Newtown families. #Gosnell

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) April 15, 2013

So Obama won’t comment on the #Gosnell trial because it’s ongoing…because that’s how he rolls…consistently. #NotReally

Obama spent more time on his NCAA bracket than on #Gosnell. If the doc was #TeaParty member there would be a daily WH briefing on the trial

— Michael Kinney (@mjkinneyjr) April 15, 2013

You’d think Obama could at least try to spin #Gosnell as a failure of regulation and oversight, but nope, then it’s acknowledged. @dloesch

Maybe commenting on the #Gosnell trial is just above Obama’s paygrade.

@soopermexican Obama uses the grieving parents, but who grieves for the millions of babies murdered by #Gosnell and other murderous doctors?

— CalFreedomMom (@CalFreedomMom) April 15, 2013

The Aurora shooting trial is going on right now and Obama talks about it all the time. No comment on #Gosnell? WTF??? #tcot

— RB (@RBPundit) April 15, 2013

Newtown shooter is dead so no trial but Aurora CO has an ongoing case & Obama comments on that all the time, but he won’t on #Gosnell

— Tom Reynolds (@Beregond) April 15, 2013

Ask the imprisoned YouTube video guy about Obama not being able to take a position on legal matters. #Gosnell

— Landon (@OrwellForce) April 15, 2013

If Obama had a son, I guess he wouldn’t look like the thousands of African-American babies aborted every year? Hypocrite!#Gosnell

— Maggiebgoode (@maggiejaehnig) April 15, 2013

So if Treyvon Martin was killed by Kermit #Gosnell, Obama would’ve kept his vengeful racist mouth shut?

— Tooth Fairy Denier (@FunkynFortunate) April 15, 2013

WHAT THE HELL?Jay Carney says OBAMA is aware of the Gosnell Trial and is not allowed to make a comment on an ongoing trial. TRAYVON MARTIN??

— Kathleen E. Curley (@kecurley22265) April 15, 2013

Obama was willing to talk about how his son might look like Trayvon but he doesn’t comment on the sons who died at Gosnell’s hands.

— Breeanne Howe (@breeannehowe) April 15, 2013

Please pray for the victims Obama stampeded on his way to the podium after Trayvon. #Gosnell

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) April 15, 2013

@presssec says Obama can’t comment on ongoing #Gosnell trial. Guess none of Gosnell’s victims looked like him.

— S.M (@redsteeze) April 15, 2013


@jtlol @presssec The baby beheader acted stupidly.

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) April 15, 2013

And so has this pathetic, shameful excuse for an administration. What a disgrace.



Obama ignores Gosnell horrors with media’s aid: Pesky babies didn’t ‘just come out limp and dead’
