Obamas. anti hunting

Barack Obama Makes His Stance Clear
Barack Obama Makes His Stance Clear
January 18, 2008 (National)

In a town meeting near Las Vegas on January 16, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama expressed his support of animal rights.



In the past, he has sponsored a bill opposing horse slaughter in his home state of Illinois.



I think how we treat out animals reflects how we treat each other, he said. And its very important that we have a president who is mindful of the cruelty that is perpetrated on animals.



Mike Markarian, executive vice president of the HSUS and president of the Humane Society Legislative Fund keeps a blog recording the stance of all candidates on animal rights issues. According to Markarian, Obama is a dedicated supporter of animal protection at the state and federal levels.



While fellow Democratic candidates John Edwards and Hilary Clinton have strong records of voting for animal rights, neither has publicly expressed an endorsement by the HSUS.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Well, I'M for animal rights! Right in my sights, right in my pot, etc. Although, honestly, as a horse owner, I'm usually against horse slaughter.

Does that animal rights thing include hunting wild game? I understand horse slaugtering, dog fighting, chicken fights and all that domesticated animal stuff.

i agree. i think not hunting wild game, like deer, is inhumane because it would alow overpopulation and therefore many deaths worse than a bullet. not to mention suffering before that death (sickness, starvation, ect.). just my opinion.

its directed at the humane society's endorsement of him.the HSUS is extremely anti hunting.
