Above Obama's Pay Grade

At the Saddlebrook Church debate early this past week:

Rick Warren: "...when does a baby have human rights?"

Senator Obama: “Well, uh, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or, uh, a scientific perspective, uh, answering that question with specificity, uh, you know, is, is, uh, above my pay grade.”

Was he referring to God?

That's what I hear Obama supporters claiming. I don't buy it, though.

If the question, admittedly referring to abortion on demand, was something like:

"When does a fetus have rights?" Or "When does an embryo have rights?" Or "When did the world begin?" Or "Why is the sky blue?" Or "Can you explain the Trinity?"...well, I'd give the guy the benefit of the doubt.

But for Heaven's sake, the question specifically used the term BABY!!!!

And the man-who-would-lead-the-nation thought he wasn't qualified to answer it?

Others have said it, but it bears repeating. Elected office seems to be far above Obama's pay grade.

Here's John McCain's radio address on this. It's short. Please read it. Thanks.
