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.
