I_C_Weener: When all else fails, try actually interviewing and reporting the news. Still won't save the network. But at least they will go out like they came in...with some integrity.


Unlikely unless they first fire the suits that thought turning CNN into an entertainment network would generate ratings.

Romney has been on both sides of this issue. He has said he supports Roe v Wade and he has said he would gladly pass a constitutional amendment that would ban all abortions. Romney also waited 36 hours before calling for Todd Akins to drop out of his Senate race, waiting until everybody else in the GOP had weighed in. The man is a spineless flip flopper.

Notabunny: Huckabee: Would you have supported an amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception?
Romney: Absolutely.


See, now you're just shiating all over the Wasserman-Schultz slam fest here by presenting Romneys own words supporting what she said. You know you can't do that here.

Your point? you may not agree, but that's a defensible point of view. Much more defensible than what SCOTUS put forward in Roe v. Wade.

Wasserman-Shultz was correct in saying Romney support the Republican position on rape and abortion.

Your point?


I think his point is that such an amendment would, by definition, ban all abortion, including those from rape and incest cases.

It's a shame seeing Debbie W-S getting tied in knots over this. Cooper is right and he's picking up the Rmoney of the Assachusettes days. RoboRmoney will jump right on board the fundie conservatard train at first opportunity. And Pooper citing the LATimes like it's the bible. Hilarious.
We know who Pooper will be voting for.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:28 AM  
It's impossible to lie about R-Money's views on abortion, since he's endorsed everything from protecting abortion rights to completely banning it (personhood amendment). It all depends on when he's asked and who is doing the asking.

If Debbie W-S can't or won't articulate that, she is failing horribly at her job.

Lots of people wouldn't agree with such an amendment; however, it represents a philosophically defensible position.

1) DWS is an intellectually dishonest dumbass.
2) Regardless, Romney has NOT been consistent in his stated opinions on abortion.
3) This is the liberal media the right is complaining about?

My point is that Wasserman-Schultz correctly described Romney's position.
 
2012-08-24 10:25:49 AM  
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

I'm sure the good folks at Hot Air will not go apeshiat against Obama if the Democratic platform contains a controversial position that differs from Obama's stated position.

The right's position on the amendment is the same as the platform: it doesn't matter, an amendment will never be ratified, it will never have the force of law, and a platform doesn't trump (he he) a candidate's personal position on a subject.

Gee, I wonder why they bother then?

Muta: FTA: Wolf Blitzer doggedly reminding her that Paul Ryan's Medicare plan would not, in fact, target senior citizens

Does Wolf Blitzer think people never age? Medicare targets senior citizens. How does Ryan's Medicare plan *not* target senior citizens? If you mean that it doesn't target "current senior citizens" then you are right. It targets today's 40 year olds who will become senior citizens in about 20 years. Does Wolf think those 40 year olds will never turn 65?


To be fair, you can't be a senior citizen if you're dead. Do enough damage to Medicare and more senior citizens could die sooner. Those that didn't would be more likely to have enough cash/assets to not need Medicare, so its removal would be less damaging.

You do realize that you're lying about Mitt Romney's views on abortion, right..Debbie?

Which one?
 
2012-08-24 10:31:56 AM  
Mitt Romney: Not in favor of doing away with all abortions such as in cases of rape or incest, but would in no way, shape or form prevent it from becoming law if it landed on his desk.

For further information, please see Paul Ryan, Romney VP Pick.
 
2012-08-24 10:32:08 AM  

Antimatter: So now the GOP is arguing that they don't have to follow or believe in their own platform?


No, just that the voters shouldn't pay attention to it because it doesn't really mean anything (unless you agree with it; then it means everything). When Congressional Republicans start drafting laws based on it, why, that's just coincidence.
 
2012-08-24 10:32:47 AM  

Galloping Galoshes: Your point? you may not agree, but that's a defensible point of view. Much more defensible than what SCOTUS put forward in Roe v. Wade.


The difference, of course, is that one is settled law, and the other is a philosophy with horrific ramifications for everyone.

Cythraul: keithgabryelski: Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is a vile attack poodle.

The Democratic leadership should tell her to keep her mouth shut. She doesn't offer any insights and only gives Democrats a bad name no matter who she supports.

sprawl15: The interview looked like a textbook case of being wrong while being right.


Agreed. Debbie's not an intellectual heavyweight, and could have framed the argument thusly: "Anderson- look at who Romney surrounds himself with. He might not have overtly supported banning all abortions, but he won't think twice about doing it if somehow an amendment were brought forth that stated exactly that."

Posted this in another thread this morning..

I saw Anderson Cooper last night try to get Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to admit that she misquoted an LA times article to mislead people she sent a donation email to. He tried hard for 5 minutes and she still wouldn't buckle even after he read the quote and her email. Made her look foolish. At first I was kind of angry that he pressed her so hard but then I realized I was mad because she was a Dem. (as am I) and I had never heard him press a Rep. that hard. Then it occurred to me, this is what needs to be done all the time. This is what I want from our jounalists. I then got mad at her for being intentionally derpish and myself for thinking that the derp was ok because it was on 'my side'. Damnit if I didn't feel a little smarter after that interview.

That woman is an idiot. The DNC needs to pitch her overboard and find someone with some substance.

I have seen her do the same thing so many times I started wondering why she keeps doing it. So far I am torn between "delusional" and "just plain dumb".

This is a typical exchange:

Reporter: (the thing you are saying) is factually incorrect. Do you want to explain or back up your statements?

DWS: That is not true. (blinks)

Reporter: Here are sources refuting your claims.

DWS: No, that is not right (blinks)

Reporter : You are being dishonest by repeating these statements.

DWS: (blinks) That does not matter.

Can it be that Romney represents a different variation of the Heisenberg quantum dynamics? One that REVERTS to super-position when you momentarily stop observing it?
 
2012-08-24 10:45:56 AM  

HeartBurnKid: If Mitt has proven one thing in this campaign, it's that his personal convictions and viewpoints are meaningless. If he governs like he's campaigned, he'll be enacting the GOP's agenda, not his own.

So... what does the GOP's platform say about abortion?


It is like liberals haven't noticed the vast stances of Obama that have changed since becoming president. Rendition, drone strikes, continued war, support of wall street, etc. Obama has not governed as 2008 campaign Obama, many in the fark left have even called him a republican. Is this really the path you want to go down, comparing.changed views?

stevetherobot: I'm sure the good folks at Hot Air will not go apeshiat against Obama if the Democratic platform contains a controversial position that differs from Obama's stated position.


I am pretty sure there a few of those. Reason looked back at the 2008 platform and compared it what the Administration has done over the last few years. There were more than a few glaring inconsistencies.

That is YOUR assumption of the amendment. Most conservatives agree with rape.and incest exceptions. You are using your own biased view to write an amendment you haven't seen in order to attack it. Liberals are kings of doing this. Tax policy center finally admitted they wrote their own assumptions.into the analysis of romneys tax plan and admit there are ways to make it deficit neutral without raising.taxes on the middle class. Liberals are very fond of idealizing what they think gop plans are before written and then attacking those plans and not the actual plans. One of the most annoying aspects of liberalism. Haidt has shown liberals can't understand conservative ideals, and liberals keep proving this assertion right.
