Dem. Congressman Stupak: "I'm Perplexed and Disappointed..."

Remember Congressman, now former, Bart Stupak?

Let me remind you. He is the Democrat who held up the vote on Obamacare from passing Congress. He was the final swing vote.

Stupak, a pro-life Democrat, first said he could not support President Obama's healthcare scheme because it funded abortions. And he and several of his colleagues refused to vote for it.

Enter the President.

After meeting with the President, Stupak told the country he could "now vote for it" because he had "negotiated" a deal with President Obama.

The President issued an Executive Order, that he said would not, repeat, would not allow abortions to be funded through his Obamacare.

Many warned Stupak, but he believed the President.


Although Mrs. Obama told America the other night that one of the many things she admired about her husband was that he always "keeps his word," Stupak would probably not agree with him.

Stupak is now struggling with the concept of believing the President. And said so on video at the Convention last week.

In a video captured by Red State, Stupak tells his colleagues, "I am perplexed and disappointed that having negotiated the Executive Order with the President, not only does the HHS mandate violate the Executive Order, but it also violates statutory law."

Perhaps others are sharing some of his disappointment. Obama's speech tonight has been moved from the 74,000-seat football stadium to an indoor 15,000-seat arena.

They say the decision is related to weather concerns.

I believe I hear Samuel Adams speaking to us in 2012, saying, "Nothing is more essential to the establishment of manners in a state than that all persons employed in places of power and trust be men of exceptional character. The public cannot be too curious concerning the character of public men."

Be Curious.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
