Jay Carney: Obama can’t comment on Gosnell right now

posted at 4:41 pm on April 16, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Weekly Standard, a little something from yesterday afternoon that got sidetracked after the attack in Boston. Carney’s technically correct here — a president’s comments about a pending state criminal proceeding risk producing a mistrial, as Richard Nixon once almost learned the hard way. But wait:

Newtown’s not “pending” because there’ll be no prosecution of Adam Lanza, but Cuffy’s onto something. How about this?

In danger of losing congressional momentum on the issue, Obama went to Colorado — which has a deep-rooted hunting tradition and where gun ownership is a cherished right — to use its example and public pressure to prod Congress to act…

Obama met with 19 law enforcement officers, activists and elected officials at the Denver Police Academy, not far from Aurora, where 12 people were killed in the movie theater shooting. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for James Holmes, the accused shooter…

“I don’t believe that weapons designed for theaters of war have a place in movie theaters,” Obama said to applause.

James Holmes had a Glock, a shotgun, and a semiautomatic rifle. Are those “weapons … of war”? Did that choice of words influence any of the jurors in Holmes’s case, making it more likely that they’ll convict? Turns out the guy who once declared that the police in Massachusetts “acted stupidly” without knowing the facts of the case after they arrested a friend of his is selective about commenting on pending cases. But that’s okay. The fact that Ed Henry’s asking about this now means he, or someone, will be asking about it again when the trial’s over. Stay tuned.

While we’re on the subject of Gosnell, here’s another data point for this week’s inevitable left/media talking point that there’s no connection whatsoever, no sir, between what “respectable” higher-end abortion clinics do and what Gosnell did. You already know that’s a lie; the question is how much of a lie is it. From Friday’s Anderson Cooper interview with David Altrogge, writer/director of a documentary about Gosnell:

[ALTROGGE:] So, I think that absolutely played a part of it. It wouldn’t be accurate to say that all of his patients were minorities. I was just talking to one of his former patients last week who was a white girl who went to a reputable clinic in Maryland and that clinic referred her to Gosnell. So, there were hundreds of women who came to Gosnell from his neighborhood, but this were women who came from all over the eastern seaboard who were referred to him.

COOPER: Right, out of state.

ALTROGGE: — who were referred to him, yes.

COOPER: It seemed as he became as known as the specialty. He was a guy who for cash, I mean, these are the allegations, that for cash he would perform late-term abortions whereas others wouldn’t.

TOOBIN: Right. And as we all know, late-term abortions are one of the most politically controversial aspects of abortion now. They are generally banned except when the life of the mother is at stake, life or health of the mother. But that, it can very much be determined by the doctor. And Gosnell apparently had the reputation for finding justification of doing it.

Which “respectable” clinics referred patients to Gosnell? And did they know what conditions at his charnel house were like when they did? At least one abortion-rights group did, and they said nothing.

Exit question: Carney says Obama believes abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. “Rare”? Since when?

The POTUS himself supports late-term abortions. He SUPPORTS what Gosnell did….to mostly minority babies and women. Of course we have to introduce the “white girl” meme into this to show “balance”. Holder’s wife owns an abortion clinic. Snakes are guarding the hen house and the “farmer” (MSM) are looking the other way. It’s self-destructive and MUST be stopped.

The fact that Ed Henry’s asking about this now means he, or someone, will be asking about it again when the trial’s over. Stay tuned

We all know why he doesn’t wanna comment on the Gosnell trial.

Doughboy on April 16, 2013 at 5:01 PM

From Jill Stanek who fought Obama on Illinois BAIPA.
Obama can’t comment against Gosnell, because Obama stands with him

Opposed companion bill to Born Alive as state senator that sought to protect abortion survivors from the Gosnells of the world…

Of course the White House wants to avoid this topic. What a disaster Gosnell is for Obama.

Gosnell first brings to Obama’s door the uncomfortable topic of infanticide. Obama is well known to have voted four times against the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act as state senator, which sought to protect abortion survivors.

But Obama also opposed two companion bills to BAIPA, one of which brings him zero degrees of separation from Gosnell. I was impressed with Fox’s Ed Henry, who went there in his questions to Carney today.

In a HuffPost Live segment today on the issue, host Marc Lamont Hill made clear where his theoretical thinking lay:

“For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights. Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection between the media’s failure to cover this and our own political commitments on the left. I think it’s a bad idea, I think it’s dangerous, but I think that’s the way it is.”

Strong words from a host on a left-leaning outlet.

Yeah they admit it openly and they don’t care. I’ll give Marc Lamont Hill this one slice of credit for telling the truth. but that won’t change the lefts potition one iota.

D-fusit on April 16, 2013 at 5:06 PM

I sincerely hope that Obama does NOT have a son (or daughter for that matter) that looked like/was one of Gosnell’s trophies.

mrscullen on April 16, 2013 at 5:06 PM

So, there were hundreds of women who came to Gosnell from his neighborhood, but this were women who came from all over the eastern seaboard who were referred to him.

Yes, and you have lefties basically saying that if late-term abortions were legal everywhere, then women wouldn’t have been “forced” to go to Gosnell and have their babies killed in such filthy conditions. The latter is all they object to about this case, but ironically it’s still not enough to support stricter regs of these clinics.

Exit question: Carney says Obama believes abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.

The LifeNews link given right after this points out some of the many lies behind Carney’s words:

But Obama’s record during his presidency has been the opposite of ensuring abortion is rare or safe.

One of his first acts as president was to issue an executive order forcing taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. His decision to overturn the Mexico City Policy sends part of $457 million to pro-abortion organizations.

In February, he nominated Kathleen Sebelius to become Secretary of Health and Human Services. She repeatedly vetoed laws in Kansas as the state’s governor to place limits on late-term abortions or to ensure the safety of women.

The first person Obama named as a judicial appointment, Judge David Hamilton, was criticized because he struck down a law the Supreme Court has upheld that allows states to pass laws to protect women by giving them full information about abortion’s risks and alternatives.

Obama’s budget proposals have called for eliminating federal funding for abstinence education, which helps young people prevent pregnancies and abortions.

And when it came time to implement the new ObamaCare health care program, his administration attempted to fund more abortions in three states before pro-life groups blew the whistle.

Obama is an absolute zealot for abortions.

Steve Z on April 16, 2013 at 5:22 PM

Safe, legal and rare. What a joke.

Nobody ever gave half a damn if they were rare. And why should they? The very logic behind this phrase is nonsense: if a procedure is both safe and legal, there’s no reason you would want it to be rare. It’s just a bone thrown to the people who have moral misgivings about that nebulous gray area of killing babies.

Now, apparently, there aren’t really all that many concerns about safe or legal, either.

And yet, it is those who object to atrocities like this who are said to “stoke paranoia”, though God only knows what exactly this is supposed to cause one to be “paranoid” about. It seems like a non sequitir in terms of accusations.

“Abortions should be safe, legal and rare” was Bill Clinton’s line when he was President. So now, on top of everything else Obama is a plagiarist?

UnrepentantCurmudgeon on April 16, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Planned Parenthood is underwritten by taxpayer dollars to the tune of $480 million ($365 million from federal funds and the rest from state and local funds). Now, under Obamacare, Medicaid expansion will further fill its coffers.

This type of funding is even more disturbing given that Planned Parenthood appears to be targeting minority populations with its abortion “services.” A 2011 study called “Racial Targeting and Population Control” by Life Dynamics Incorporated revealed that Planned Parenthood clinics are 2-1/2 times more likely to be in neighborhoods with a disproportionately high Black and Hispanic population.

Waiting on you, Obama, to start calling PP racist.

Did Lanza cut off feet and put them in jars?

What if Lanza had snipped the spine of your youngest, so it would not breathe?

Maybe Mommy wanted the spine snipped apart, but what if Daddy did not want the baby to have the spine snipped apart?

What if Mother Teresa offered to take the baby to India, so it would have a chance to breathe? Did anyone ask for takers?

If Lanza had asked us, someone would have said, don’t kill these children. Who spoke for the Gosnell babies?

Yes it is noteworthy that Obama, the man who can’t shut up about any topic or current event if it’s politically useful to him, has nothing to say about this.

Gosnell killed 4 times as many kids as died at Sandy Hook. He’s probably the most successful and prolific serial killer in American history.

Lily, you deserve this for your +1000 comment.

Thank you, GrannyDee.

Too bad there can’t be flowers on the little graves of all those poor, tiny, innocent victims.

Odd statement. Obama had no problem with the Gates arrest or the Travon Martin case.

Amen, Lily.

Amen.

really, Allah? now jay carney’s comment on Obama’s non-existing stance on gosnell is even worthy of a post?

how much traffic is the gosnell story driving to hotair…I’d like to know.

It’s not Obama’s stance on Gosnell that’s newsworthy, but that he actively defended the actions undertaken by Gosnell, for which he’s on trial.

Considering his votes and his rhetoric, I have to assume he would be okay with it.
