The Democrats are doing no such thing.
But I had you fooled there for a second, didn’t I?
But remember, no matter how bad the Democrats are, no matter how many of your fundamental human rights they surrender (never to be reclaimed),the Republicans are always worse.
So, uh, vote Democratic…so you can have
bold, decisive leadership from Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., took no position on two of the hottest social issues in America today — guns and abortion — in a week when those subjects were brought before the public in quite compelling ways.
Took no position. Uh…
Asked about this morning’s historic and unprecedented decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a state ban on an abortion procedure, Pelosi — longtime backer of abortion rights — said, “This is an issue I need to review.” Reid immediately changed the subject to the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. “That’s what it brings to my mind,” Reid said.
Well, maybe they need time to…you know…review it. But surely Pelosi, a San Francisco liberal, has a position on gun control in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre? Right? Right?
Two days after the slaughter of 32 innocents on the campus of Virginia Tech by a shooter with two handguns, Pelosi demurred on whether Congress was in any mood to examine gun control laws.
“The mood in Congress is one of mourning, sadness and the inadequacy of our words” to help the bereaved, Pelosi said.
Thanks, Nancy. You’re a real tiger.
