President Obama played the most magnificent violin at Notre Dame on Sunday. Salivating over every note were Fr. John Jenkins, the Trustees of the University, and the audience who gave Obama standing ovations.
Do all of these people agree with Obama’s ardent pro-abortion position? If the answer is “yes,” Notre Dame’s stated commitment to the sanctity of human life is a sham, as it is a commitment in words only.
Or, were they willing to be “played” so adroitly? If “yes,” Obama comes out the big winner. He can drag out the photo op as “proof” he isn’t so bad on abortion whenever it suits his purposes — on his website, in campaign literature, in ads.
Notre Dame officials may believe that Obama’s appearance lent prestige to the University. They were hoodwinked as it only gave cover to Obama.
