Surprisingly, his “Truth Team” left out the words “appalling and offensive” even though they were quoting that portion of his speech.
From this post last night:
“If you don’t like it, the governor of Pennsylvania said you can ‘close your eyes,’” Obama said of Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, who has backed a mandatory ultrasound bill.
“It’s appalling. It’s offensive. It’s out of touch. And when it comes to what’s going on out there, you’re not going to close your eyes,” Obama said. “Women across America aren’t closing their eyes. As long as I’m president, I won’t either.”
The president explained that as a husband and father of two daughters he has a “vested interest” in advancing rights for women, and would fight efforts to “turn back the clock to the ’50s or the ’40s or the ’30s or maybe further than that.”
