Arizona’s conservative Congressman Trent Franks (R-CD2) recently denounced President Barack Obama as “an enemy of humanity” who does “insane things.”
Bethany Haley, U. S. Rep. Franks’ House spokeswoman, emphasized that he was speaking specifically about the abortion issue and should have clarified that he considered Obama an enemy of “unborn humanity,” according to a report in the daily.
Franks is adamantly pro-life; Obama, a longtime abortion supporter — who when a member of the Illinois state senate was the reliable leftist vote in opposition of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act — intended to ensure medical care to babies born as the result of a botched abortion.
The Congressman participated in the National Tea Party march to protest President Barack Obama’s health-care-reform proposals and spending policies. After the march, Franks issued this written statement:
“Having spent much of this year fighting inconceivably bad policies like Cap-and-Tax, ObamaCare, Cash for Clunkers, and a seemingly countless number of efforts to expand the reach of government into private industries, it is so encouraging to see freedom-loving Americans from all over the country go to so much trouble to exercise one of their most basic rights, that of petitioning our government, and make their voices heard. Americans realize that the current Administration and Democrat-controlled Congress have put us on a slippery-slope toward socialism. These patriotic citizens have had enough of being told to listen to Washington; it’s time for Washington to listen to them.”
