Is the left getting truly desperate as the election enters its last days?
One issue being raised with increasing frequency–abortion–would indicate this is the case. A Vice President, Hollywood stars, and now a left-wing lawyerare all trying to scare people on the issue they care most about. Now the left always brings up abortion, and any objective analysiswould show they are more obsessed with the issue than even the mostcommitted pro-lifer on the right. To some on the left, abortion ondemand is almost sacramental.
Joe Biden was asked about abortion and his faith during the vicepresidential debate and tried to claim he was both pro-life and deeplycommitted to abortion on demand.
“With regard to abortion, I accept my Church’s position on abortion asa de fide doctrine. Life begins at conception. I accept that positionin my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devoutChristians, and Muslims and Jews,” Biden said during the debate.
Had he ended his answer there, it would have been a respectable answerfor a man who says he defines himself by his Catholic faith, butinstead he went on.
“The next president will get one or two Supreme Court nominations.That’s how close Roe v. Wade is. Just ask yourself, with Robert Borkbeing the chief adviser to the court for Mr. Romney, who do you thinkhe’s likely to appoint? Do you think he’s likely to appoint someonelike Scalia or someone else on the court, far right, that would outlawabortion? I suspect that would happen,” Biden said.
How does a man that says he accepts life begins at conception thenturn around and fear monger over what a court might do? It isfear mongering at its best, and Americans can expect plenty more of itin the next few weeks.
Last week came the video from some of Hollywood’s most charmingbeauties warning women across America against Mitt Romney on “women’sissues.” Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, and Kerry Washington joinedforces with MoveOn.org to warn women that Romney will ruin theirlives.
Now we have Gloria Allred and her “October surprise,” an apparent claimagainst Mitt Romney that he counseled a woman against having an abortion.The horror of it all, Romney, acting as a bishop in his church,advising a fellow church member to consider adoption instead ofabortion. What a monster Romney must be!
Of course, as Breitbart readers know, this is not a new story.
That the left is willing to raise the issue of abortion is nosurprise; they have tried to use it as a trump card for decades now.What is surprising, and what shows their desperation, is that they arewilling to stoop this low at this point in the campaign
The only questions that remain–will the American people deem Romneyunelectable for preferring adoption to abortion? And will Obama’scheerleaders in the media run with this or see it as another signof a campaign on the wrong track?
