It almost boggles the mind to think that a person running for a public office would lie, but that is what some narrow-minded people are saying about our recently re-elected senator from Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill. Such a short time ago while campaigning for re-election to her senate seat Claire was adamant about not being in favor of same sex marriage but she was in favor of civil unions. Now that the election is over and she is firmly back feeding at the Democratic Hog Trough, she has changed her mind. Was it a religious epiphany? Did she have a direct talk with God and He made a believer out of her? Who knows. It’s doubtful that God had a hand in it for according to the Bible He doesn’t favor same sex unions any more than professing Christians do. More than likely she wanted to get in line with President Obama for he has had the same turn around as she experienced along with Hillary Clinton and others for now, she too, is all for same sex marriage which she so strongly opposed in the past when it was to her and Bill’s political advantage to do so. Now she is looking for the Democratic nomination in 2016 and she will need the same sex vote to gain that end. Yes, politics does make strange bedfellows.

It is interesting to see how grieved President Obama is over 20 children being murdered in Sandy Hook School but does he show any remorse over the hundreds of thousands of children murdered by Planned Parenthood each year? Not that I have ever seen. Again it is according to whose Ox is being gored. Like his Chief of Staff once said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.: And he is making the most of this tragic event even though he knows these restrictions on guns will not prevent another mass killing of this type.

One thing you never hear him mention is the Muslim Terrorist who killed the soldiers at Ft. Hood, TX. Oh, no, he doesn’t want to hurt the feelings of his Muslim friends. Remember his statement in his book “The Audacity of Hope” where he is speaking of his Arab and Pakistani friends and says, “That I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” He has made very plain his intentions to make this country a third world nation and yet the idiots reelected him.
