This video has surfaced on Representative Bart Stupak’s position back in October of 2009.
While on the one hand claiming that life had become a living hell because of his pro-life position, his plan from the beginning was to go along with the crowd. Since this is primarily a military blog, I am usually loath to take on social issues. I am pro life, but have no idea what position most of my readers take. It isn’t important for our understanding of Bart Stupak. Occasionally it pays to understand just who leads our great country.
We all knew that he was duplicitous after he made such a commotion about his beliefs and then caved for no gain whatsoever. But he apparently wanted to be the hero of the pro life movement. He is not only a weasel – he is is an egomaniac too. Or is this the end of it? Is there something else to the account?
I was heard muttering to those around me several days ago that this was all carefully choreographed by the administration to give the appearance of having made provisions for pro life democrats and independents even though the Hyde Amendment was absent from the bill. So with Stupak now telling us that he intended to vote in favor of the bill months ago, and with the carefully coordinated display of unction by Stupak and the resultant meaningless executive order by the administration, the question redounds to this: how much of this was part of an overarching plan set into motion before most of America was even thinking about it?
