Wendy Davis Taking Lessons from Barack Obama on the Creative use of Language

Over the last few weeks the pub­lic has learned Barack Obama man­aged to get Oba­macare passed and win re-​election by use of a bla­tant lie: “If you like your health insur­ance you can keep it.”

Well Wendy Davis run­ning for Gov­er­nor in Texas a Red State solidly against abor­tion appar­ently has taken notes:

Davis sug­gested that her views on abor­tion access do not mean she does not care about life.

I am pro-​life,” she said, bor­row­ing from the label anti-​abortion activists assign them­selves. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hun­gry, every child that goes to bed with­out a proper edu­ca­tion, every child that goes to bed with­out being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their abil­ity to pro­vide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fight­ing for peo­ple above all else.”

Does any­one want to bet how many robo­calls & mail­ers are going to go to pro-​life vot­ers with that “I am Pro-​Life” state­ment and noth­ing else before elec­tion day comes?

She has learned her lessons well.

Update: The Wash­ing­ton Exam­iner:

Wendy Davis wants to be the gov­er­nor of Texas, so the Demo­c­ra­tic state sen­a­tor famous for fil­i­bus­ter­ing a bill that would increase reg­u­la­tions on abor­tion clin­ics dubbed her­self “pro-​life” dur­ing a cam­paign event Tuesday.

I am pro-​life,” Davis, a Texas state sen­a­tor, said at the Uni­ver­sity of Texas’ Brownsville cam­pus. She doesn’t mean the term the way that it’s usu­ally used.

Over the last few weeks the public has learned Barack Obama managed to get Obamacare passed and win re-election by use of a blatant lie: “If you like your health insurance you can keep it.”

Well Wendy Davis running for Governor in Texas a Red State solidly against abortion apparently has taken notes:

Davis suggested that her views on abortion access do not mean she does not care about life.

“I am pro-life,” she said, borrowing from the label anti-abortion activists assign themselves. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”

Does anyone want to bet how many robocalls & mailers are going to go to pro-life voters with that “I am Pro-Life” statement and nothing else before election day comes?

She has learned her lessons well.

Update: The Washington Examiner:

Wendy Davis wants to be the governor of Texas, so the Democratic state senator famous for filibustering a bill that would increase regulations on abortion clinics dubbed herself “pro-life” during a campaign event Tuesday.

“I am pro-life,” Davis, a Texas state senator, said at the University of Texas’ Brownsville campus. She doesn’t mean the term the way that it’s usually used.
