Rush Limbaugh wonders what the media would say if President Palin showed the same flagrant disrespect for the law that Obama does:
Another Rush clip here.
Meanwhile, in a similar vein, from the American Spectator: Attorney General Mark Levin: Won’t Enforce Roe v. Wade:
Barely twenty-four hours after her inauguration as America’s first woman chief executive, President Sarah Palin announced today that Attorney General Mark Levin has been instructed to stop defending Roe v. Wade and abortion in a wave of fresh lawsuits filed in federal courts around the country.
Said the Attorney General:
“Roe v. Wade contains numerous expressions reflecting moral disapproval of unborn children and their potential intimate and family relationships — precisely the kind of stereotype-based thinking and animus the (Constitution’s) Equal Protection Clause is designed to guard against.”
“Much of the legal landscape has changed in the 40 years since the Supreme Court created a so-called ‘right to privacy,’ which has no constitutional basis and no tangible form,” Levin said in a statement….
At the White House, a spokesman said Palin herself was never one to be “grappling” with her personal view of abortion, and has always personally opposed Roe v. Wade as “unnecessary and unfair.”
Levin wrote to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, that Palin has concluded Roe v. Wade fails to meet a rigorous standard under which courts view with suspicion any laws targeting minority groups who have suffered a history of discrimination. “The unborn, perhaps the most vulnerable minority group in history, have a severe history of discrimination,” added the new attorney general.
In what sources say was a heated phone conversation with the head of the pro-abortion group, one shocked Justice Department career attorney said the Attorney General was heard to say:
“Get off the phone you big dope.”
