Anderson Cooper grills Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Why are you lying about Romney’s position on abortion? « Hot Air:

Between this and Wolf Blitzer doggedly reminding her that Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan would not, in fact, target senior citizens, it’s been a tough couple of weeks on CNN for America’s most lifelike talking-points robot. I wonder why they’ve decided to go after her lately. Has her droning, mechanical spin begun to annoy even otherwise sympathetic media? Or is this a pure ratings thing, with CNN producers realizing that rhetorical bloodsport with DWS is a surefire winner with conservative audiences?
Simple stuff here. The GOP adopted the same abortion language in its platform this year, with no specific exceptions for rape or incest, as it did in 2008 and 2004. Romney’s on record repeatedly as saying that he favors exceptions for rape and incest in prospective abortion bans. DWS’s spin: Because Romney’s the nominee and his people kinda sorta get to write the platform — which isn’t binding on him or anyone else — we should ignore his stated position and pretend like he’s no different from Todd Akin. And if that means occasionally bowdlerizing a quote in a newspaper for DNC fundraising e-mails, hey, politics ain’t beanbag. You’re now prepared for seven minutes of mind-paralyzing spin. Go get ‘em, Roboto.
My View: You have to enjoy when the media do their job and push a Progressive for the truth. To watch the double talk and redefining words is comical at best.

  1. Wasserman and the DNC are failing at their attempt to make this campaign about one issue - abortion. Why? Because their candidate has a dismal record when it comes to the economy, gas prices, unemployment, etc.

    So, to rally the female vote they want to equate Feminism with abortion. If you believe in equality for women then you must support abortion. They want to make this election a one issue election but there is too much of a wake for Obama this time.

    The RNC's position on abortion hasn't changed in decades and Wasserman, using Obama's tactic of saying anything, got caught with her hand in the cookie jar and refused to admit it.

    Dems need to face the facts that Obama didn't deliver. He has made this nation worse, not better and has infiltrated the highest office in the land with a socialist agenda that is stripping away our freedoms. Either candidate's position on abortion is the least concern for our nation.
