Is that significantly different from a presidential candidate who declares that the question of when life begins is above his pay grade? Surely a man of his age with his political ambition must have acquired enough knowledge, be it right or wrong, to form an opinion on the subject.

Obama was not asked when life begins, and yes, it is different.

Quote:
When asked, "At what point does a baby get human rights?"

[Obama's response:] I think that whether you are looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade." He added that he supports the landmark decision Roe vs. Wade but said the issue has "moral and ethical content" and stressed his commitment to reducing the number of abortions."

I think he did. His opinion was that it was up to a higher power.

No he didn't. Read the post before yours. He was asked a specific question regarding legal issues, which he ducked, and wisely so under the circumstances.

When does she take her glasses off, and her hair falls down around her head and shoulders, and she licks her lips, and stuff?

Aaaaand he's back. I was seriously beginning to worry about you.

BTW...Sen. Obama was not quite as concise as your quote makes him appear. He seemed to be groping for the words. Why? I'll leave that up to the viewers. Other than admitting that he agreed with Roe v Wade, he never answered the question. He simply says if you believe something, then I can't argue.

Also, the question included the qualifying phrase (which you did not include) "in your view".

In my view, the quote makes him appear to have ducked the question, which as you suggest, is exactly what he did.

When he said it was up to "higher pay grade", that was setting the opinion that it was up to a higher power. Now one could argue if he meant God or the Supreme Court or Bill Gates.
