Joe Biden is famous for sticking his foot in his mouth. He did it again the other day when he excused China’s policy of brutally enforcing a limit of one child for most families.
How did the Obama Administration respond to Joe’s latest blathering? They trotted out a lower-level spokesperson to embarrass the Vice President of the United States by publicly correcting him, stating that the Administration really opposes China using forced abortions and sterilizations to enforce the policy.
Oh, really? Did the Administration “oppose” the policy when one of Obama’s first acts after his inauguration was to give millions of dollars to the U.N. agency that helps implement China’s coercive population program?
Did the Administration “oppose” the policy when it refused to comment about the abuses after official visits with Chinese leaders by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Obama himself?
National Right to Life leaders actually showed ultrasound images of unborn babies, displayed fetal models and passed out Precious Feet pins at a U.N. conference in China. If the Administration is so opposed to forced abortion, where is their similar sense of courage to speak up against it?
All we’ve heard from a ranking official of any kind is Biden stating “I fully understand” China’s position and “I’m not second-guessing” the brutal policy. Just another example of the Administration’s hypocrisy — say one thing, do another
