GOP Rep Tiahrt Asks Whether Obama's Mother Would Have Had An Abortion

Typical GOP racist, to bad his mother didn"t abort him. How racist is that comment?
The comments, pointed out by an eagle-eyes CSPAN viewer, are a classic charge of abortion opponents, though, in this case, rife with political sensitivities. Usually it is Beethoven, not Obama, who plays the role of the fortunately non-terminated fetus.
But for Tiahrt to group the president together with another minority figure - Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas - is to invite another round of questions over how the GOP is actually relating to minority communities. Just this week, Michael Steele was asked how to woo black voters to the Republican tent by a questioner who offered up collard greens. I'll bring the "fried chicken and potato salad" the RNC Chairman, himself an African-American, responded. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., meanwhile, told Sonia Sotomayor, a Hispanic, that she had "some 'splaining to do." LinkHere
