Dumb questions of the week

Hot Air » Hillary: Let the babies starve until we fund abortions:
Does Hillary Clinton think it is more important to promote liberal Western ideologies than to address the critical needs of the women and children of Africa and Asia? Does she prefer to promote the tired, old eugenic orthodoxies of the largely discredited population-control movement? Is Hillary Clinton — and the Obama administration — willing to hold up funding for maternal and infant health because of a dogmatic commitment to a universal right to abortion on demand?

Are these rhetorical questions? Do these people have no familiarity with the Clinton and Obama record and current policy on these issues? Anyone who is surprised at any of these shenanigans is too innocent to be reporting on politics in this day and age. Maybe too innocent to be reporting on anything in America.
