Ayn Rand said: “Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.” This quote beautifully sums up the nature of Barack Obama. Barack Obama is a puzzle of a man, if there ever was one. He is an opportunist and an idealist all at once. He is corrupt in one way, but pure in his ideals. Within the framework of his agenda, he will always fall into place; right where you’d expect him to be. Looking at his policy, contradictions seem to arise. But the truth is, they are not contradictions, but false premises.
Barack Obama is the first President to directly address Planned Parenthood. In his speech at a Planned Parenthood gathering, he said many things: he advocated for “women’s health,” decried states that have enacted restrictive abortion laws, and vowed to fight for Planned Parenthood. The President said numerous things about which I could be offended, but his final words to the gathering struck me. At the end of his speech, the president said this: “…you’ve also got a President whose gonna be right there with you, fighting every step of the way. God bless you.”
