Barack Obama's True Feelings

There is no way to get inside someone's head, but their instant reaction to press accounts can give you some good evidence of where they are coming from. The Weekly Standard's John McCormack contrasts two statements by our President about the two killings that happened this week. Barack Obama said of the two killings:
"I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."

"I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long's family as they mourn the loss of their son."

Obama makes it clear that he is "shocked and outraged" by someone killing a doctor for disagreeing about abortion, yet he is only "deeply saddened" by a Muslim Jihadist killing one of America's soldiers and wounding another... so saddened Obama can't even bring himself to note what our enemy's motivations are or his claims that he wished he could have killed more of our troops. Obama immediately sprung in to action and sent FBI agents pouring out to protect abortion doctors. He did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in response to the murder of our military recruiter, William Long. NOTHING.

It is hard not to draw the conclusion that another murder of a military recruiter is something that Obama can live with, while another murder of an abortion doctor MUST be stopped.
