Obama Picks Porn Lawyer for Deputy Attorney General

It’s time to get your pen/pencil/computer out and write another letter to our senators. They should know us by name now! Our President has elected a porn lawyer for Deputy Attorney General. We need to let our Senators know that this is not okay with us, to have someone with such a reputation in a leadership position.

Obama Picks Porn Lawyer for #2 at Justice

CHICAGO, February 4, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama has made a major mistake and put America's families at risk by selecting David Ogden to become Deputy Attorney General, says Fidelis, a pro-family organization.

"David Ogden is a hired gun from Playboy and ACLU. He can't run from his long record of opposing common sense laws protecting families, women, and children.  The United States Senate has a responsibility to the American people to insure that Mr. Ogden's full record is fully reviewed before any vote on his nomination" said Brian Burch, President of Fidelis.

"Ogden's record is nothing short of obscene. He has represented Playboy Enterprises in multiple cases, Penthouse Magazine, the ACLU, and the largest distributor of hard-core pornography videos.  He has opposed filters on library computers protecting children from Internet smut, and successfully defended the right of pornographers to produce material with underage children."

"David Ogden has collected checks from Playboy and Penthouse to fight any attempts to establish filters on federally-funded public libraries. Ogden even sued the federal government in an attempt to publish Braille versions of Playboy magazine - at taxpayer expense, of course," said Burch.

As a lawyer in private practice, Ogden has argued for an unlimited abortion license, gays in the military, and has urged courts to treat traditional definitions of marriage as a social prejudice.

"A vast majority of Americans support parental notification before a minor's abortion and protecting kids from Internet pornography in our libraries," continued Burch.  "Yet David Ogden has fought tooth and nail against these common sense laws protecting our children from harm. At a time when America's families are under increasing assault, Mr. Ogden is a dangerous choice for a position whose responsibilities include the enforcement of our nation's laws. "

Thanks for getting the word out on this guy. President Obama certainly is racking up the liberal points, isn't he?

Holy crap. I guess the constitution really will hang by a thread sooner than we thought!

Can you even believe this Ogden guy? Creepy... I had a comment-er over at my blog try to convince me that his defense of all things pornographic and perverted isn't going to affect his ability to the job? Let's just say that he didn't convince me. Of course it has an effect on him, his character, his morals and definitely how he will do the job. My husband always says that you spend time with people who are most like you...what does that say about Obama?

Hi J! How can he say that his defense of pornography won't affect his judgement!?!!? That is who he is, his character, he has been defending pornography - not just saying it's okay, but actually promoting it. And Obama to support this!?!?!

It's going to be a LOOONNNNGGGG four years!
