Who's to Blame for Tiller's Murder? Obama or Roe vs. Wade?

Liberals love to play the game of blaming someone other than the actual murderer for the crimes they commit. Like in April when that dude killed those cops? That was Glenn Beck's fault for some reason. 9/11? Blame Western extravagance. Columbine? Blame the act of bullying.

You get the picture.

This time around, even though the could have instantly blamed pro-lifers, God, and conservatives (and already started via twitter), their gut reaction was to go for the big-boys again. This time blame has been placed on Bill O'Reilly for a piece he did a while back on George Tiller's practice of performing late-term abortions.

But I thought this rabbit hole must go deeper than the top rated cable news host in America. It just can't be that simple.

So liberals, if we're not going to blame the actual psycho who pulled the trigger, let's see who could really be at fault here.

At the Saddleback Presidential Forum, then Senator Obama said this:
"The fact is that although we have had a president who is opposed to abortion over the last eight years, abortions have not gone down and that is something we have to address."

In his next breath he said this:
"I am in favor, for example, of limits on late-term abortions..."

Could it be that these remarks pushed Scott Roeder into committing this crime? It's been 10 years since an abortionist was murdered. Obama makes those comments, gets elected and less than five months later this horrific event occurs? Are we to also believe it's only a coincidence that Obama specifically mentioned late-term abortions and Roeder chose Tiller, a doctor known for performing late-term abortions, as his victim?

Or perhaps it was the result of remarks made over 35 years ago by Harold Andrew Blackmun. You might know him better as Justice Harry Blackmun, who wrote the Supreme Court's opinion in deciding Roe v. Wade.

Just think, if Roe had gone the other way, literally millions of people would be alive today who are no longer with us, and among those would be Dr. George Tiller.

So, you liberals who are so fond of casting the blame of a heinous deed onto someone other than the criminal himself, there's your list of suspects as I see it.

As for me, I'll just blame the man who pulled the trigger.
