    is this the next lipstick comment?

    if you're to fucking stupid to get what he's saying then that's your problem.

    but here allow me to spell it out for you


    he's saying give them education and knowledge to practice safe sex so they don't get PREGNANT and aren't forced to make a decision whether to have a baby or not have a baby.

    and yes, not giving them the tools to make an informed decision and then trying to force them to have a child because they make a mistake IS punishing them with a baby.

    It's the whole take responsibility argument the cons are always spouting.

    Actually this is pretty much our interpretation of what he said.

    We just don't see babies as punishment regardless if their conception was planned or not (but in your case we'll make an exception).

    Way to twist the argument. Anyone with half a brain gets it though. A woman having a baby at 17 means that she is going to sacrifice so much of life that would normally be available to her in the time between graduation from high school and eventually marrying, settling down and having a family. That's what Obama meant but his words are deliberately twisted by the propagandists.

    again you're making something out of nothing because you can't debate the issues.

    Have you never heard a parent say "you're my punishment for giving my paretns a hard time"? I've said it myself.

    and to a young girl, who isn't ready emotionally, financially or physically to have a child...a baby CAN feel like a punishment.

    why do you ignore that he included STDs in that statement and only focus on the baby part? to an immature person a baby IS a punishment for messing up and making a bad decision because they either live with the decision to terminate or they have the baby and raise it, struggling as a teen parent or the have it and give it up for adoption and wonder whether the baby is healthy and happy.

    see...all three choices are torture for smeone too young to be in that situation.

    You know, if a fundie were to call STD's "a punishment" y'all would be spitting blood out of sheer rage.

    In fact, y'all did go apeshit when a select few evangelicals called AIDS a punishment.

    It's a good thing for Obama he isn't a Christian.

    Still, babies aren't punishment. They're hard work--and I suppose to liberals THAT could be construed as punishment.

    All this shows is that once again Little O's supporters have to cover for him because while he might be clean he's not nearly as articulate as his lesser choice of VP makes him out to be.

    It was a dumb thing for him to say.

    I'm pretty sure he didn't mean it to mean babies are punishment. Obviously, he's got two of his own.
