Your moral wiggle room just disappeared.
It always irks me when liberals piss and moan about how mean republicans are to kids and old people. It used to work like a charm every election cycle but a lot of plain, good-hearted working people are getting tired of this nonsense.
Let’s be clear…THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT. The party hacks have made that painfully clear.
Dick Durbin, Tom Perez To 28 Percent Of Dems Who Oppose Abortion: Get In Line Or Get Out
“I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who see that differently on a personal basis, but when it comes to the policy position, I think we need to be clear and unequivocal.”

Keith Ellison Blames Obama For Democratic Failures
“Your legacy is not a building that he’s going to construct in Chicago housing his presidential papers,” Ellison continued. “His legacy is the work he’s done which I believe is tremendous. But given we lost a lot of statehouse seats, governorships, secretary of states, his true legacy is in danger and I think he can’t say that he wasn’t part of those losses. Who else, right?”

A LOT OF DEMOCRATS DIDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM
Look Who Went Into The Bowl Of Stupid
Diamond and Silk: ‘My president never says anything that’s stupid’
Remember Bart Stupak? He and a small group of pro-life democrats didn’t want to vote for Obamacare because of federal abortion funding. It would not have passed without them. Had he stuck to his principles, he would have gotten tens of millions in donations from grateful Americans. In the end, he caved and this disaster passed. And the next election cycle he was summarily booted out of office along with all of the others. All the democrats who voted for O-care got something in return. Which led me to the conclusion there are no moderate democrats. They just have different price tags.
The run-off will be between Democrat Ossoff (48.1%) and Republican Handel (19.8%).
I was puzzled by this, since the district is said to be traditionally Republican. I looked up the ballot and found there were 18 people running for that seat in Georgia yesterday. More than half (11) were Republicans. Five were Democrats and two were Independents.
This is the top of the ballot results. The rest of the contenders got 0.3% or less.
Democrats are hopeful about the run-off, but it’s hardly the shoo-in one might think from the Ossoff vs. Handel numbers above.
Given Hillary’s recently whinging about misogyny, it’ll be fun to see what the Dems say if the male Democrat loses to the female Republican.
Well, they won another special election… almost. 30-year-old carpetbagging puppet Jon Ossoff garnered 48% of the vote in the Ga.-6th election yesterday. Since he did not overcome the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff election the liberals pissed away almost $9 million. Well, it’s only money. He will now face another contest on June 20, not against 11 republicans, but one — Karen Handel, former secretary of state who ran for senator and governor previously. It is likely the heavily republican district will coalesce around her, making her the heir to HHS Secretary Tom Price.
Jon Ossoff Finishes Below 50%, Georgia’s 6th District Heading to Runoff
In the end, Ossoff ended up pulling in less than 50%, with totals showing him at 48.6% after a huge dump of votes came in from Fulton County around midnight, leading to numerous outlets to project this as heading to a runoff. Republican Karen Handel was second at 19.5% and will be his opponent in a June runoff.
This has been a race that Democrats have been targeting since it opened up, as President Donald Trump won it by less than two points in November. Millions of dollars have been pumped into the Democratic campaign. Meanwhile, Trump has taken to Twitter to weigh in on the race in an effort to energize Republicans.
“Five Takeaways From the Georgia Special Election”
[CtH: This is from MSN, which was anti-Trump/pro-Hillary. IOW, this is the best spin they could come up with. ::snork:: My fave line: “A female Republican politician probably wasn’t his preferred choice for the runoff.” No, really?]
1. This isn’t a win, and it isn’t a loss. It is a “to be continued.”
2. Ossoff will have a reasonable chance of winning in June.
3. This is not a great result for Republicans. Moral victories are a myth, but they can tell us things about other, similarly situated contests.
4. Ossoff did have unique advantages
5. It’s early. Perhaps most importantly, it is early. Despite protestations to the contrary, we don’t know where President Trump’s job approval will be in the fall of 2018.
MSNBC: Democrats grumbling about how Jon Ossoff blew millions of campaign dollars on TV ads
Democrats begin to wonder: When do we win?
For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren’t promising.
For all the anger, energy, and money swirling at the grass-roots level, Democrats didn’t manage to pick off the first two Republican-held congressional seats they contended for in the Trump era, and the prospects aren’t markedly better in the next few House races coming up: the Montana race at the end of May, and the South Carolina contest on June 20.
After that, it’ll be a further five months before the New Jersey and Virginia elections for governor, leaving some strategists and lawmakers wondering how to keep the furious rank-and-file voters engaged in fueling and funding the party’s comeback — especially given the sky-high expectations that surrounded Ossoff’s ultimately unsuccessful run at the 50-percent threshold that was necessary to win the seat outright.
[CtH: Where’s Dennis Rodman?!]
Another Tuesday….another special election…..another pathetic display by a political party so desperate for any kind of positive news they’ll pour $10 million into a House race for a seat the republicans have held for 40 years. Tom Price was appointed HHS director by President Trump and this was his seat. After the democrats congratulated themselves by “only” losing a special election last week in Kansas by 8 points they really, really hope to win this one. It’s an open election where if no one candidate wins 51% of the vote the top two have a runoff. 80-90% of the cash poured in to this election is from outside sources. Around the webs:
Trump raises the stakes in GA special election today
Welcome to another Tuesday, another special election, and another opportunity for speculation about whether Donald Trump and Republicans are really in trouble this time. Voters in Georgia’s 6th District go to the polls today for the all-in primary that pits 18 candidates against each other to replace Tom Price, now Health and Human Services Secretary for the Trump administration. Democrats have poured over eight million dollars into the race, and have to hope that Jon Ossoff will get to 50% today to avoid the runoff:
It’s a foregone conclusion that Ossoff will win a plurality today. The Republican vote will get split among eleven candidates. Democrats hoped to get a massive turnout from their side in today’s race to get to the 50% mark, which is why so much cash has flowed into a House special election. Unfortunately for them, Ossoff hasn’t polled outside of the low 40s in the R+8 district, so that strategy required Republicans to sit at home — or to have Democrats turn out in massive numbers. In a special election, that could happen, and might catch Republicans napping.
Democrats throw millions, Hollywood punch into Georgia House race
Democrats are pumping millions into the Georgia congressional election set for Tuesday, hoping a 30-year-old political upstart who’s attracting star power can deliver a rebuke to President Trump and help the party reclaim lost momentum.
Hollywood has even come out for the off-cycle vote, with actor Samuel L. Jackson cutting a radio ad urging voters to flip the seat once held by Republican Tom Price, who is now Trump’s health secretary.
Hopeful ABC: Special Election Win Could Mean ‘Real Chance’ Dems Take Congress
The journalists on Monday’s Good Morning America excitedly predicted that a special election in April of 2017, 18 months before the midterm elections, could mean a “real chance Democrats take back Congress in 2018.” Discussing Democrat John Osoff’s chances in Tuesday’s Georgia House race, Matt Dowd enthused: “Can he win it without a runoff? If a Democrat wins that district in Georgia, there’s real chance Democrats could take back Congress in 2018.”
Heavy Funding for Dem Jon Ossoff Catches Republicans Flat-Footed in Georgia Special Election
A highly energized effort by the Democrats that has raised more than $8.9 million from around the country for thirty-year-old Jon Ossoff has caught the Republican leadership napping .
This puts the young Democrat within striking distance of the 50 percent plus one he needs to win the crowded Sixth Congressional District special election “jungle primary” in Georgia to replace Republican Tom Price, now Secretary of Health and Human Services, outright on Tuesday.
CBS Hypes Young Democrat in Georgia Primary, ‘Hopes’ Are ‘Invested’ in Him
It’s not the first time CBS had thrown its weight behind a candidate just before a close election. In the run up to the 2016 presidential election, CBS touted Clinton’s ‘Get Out the Vote’ efforts in early voted Iowa. “Early access to the polls in Iowa was not lost on the Clinton campaign today,” Pelley touted back in September. Just a few days before the 2016 election, Pelley was greatly concerned that African-Americans wouldn’t turnout in the numbers needed for Clinton to beat Trump.
Trump Enters the Fray of Georgia Special Election, Attacks ‘Super Liberal Democrat’ Ossoff
Ossoff is a former congressional staffer for Rep. Hank Johnson (D, Ga.) (YOU KNOW,THE DUMBASS WHO SAID GUAM WOULD TIP OVER IF EVERYBODY WENT TO ONE SIDE OF THE ISLAND), who once compared Jewish settlers in the West Bank to “termites.” Ossoff has touted his national security credentials on the campaign trail, initially claiming he spent five years as a national security staffer with Johnson with access to classified information. The candidate later admitted he had misrepresented his record, only working as a full-time aide for about half that time while holding a security clearance for his final five months of the job.
The article linked below is worth printing out to study carefully. Briefly, it says that, while tolerance is a virtue, all of the virtues are interdependent and people nowadays aren’t being formed in all of them.
The Left promotes tolerance in isolation from other important virtues like justice, temperance, courage, and prudence.
Thus, they lack the wisdom necessary to avoid the two extremes of tolerance:
For example, they put up with militant Islam, while suppressing peaceful Christianity. Likewise, they excuse bad behavior in Democrats, while condemning much less heinous acts in Republicans.
The Illusion of Moral Neutrality by J. Budziszewski
Planned Parenthood is honoring Hillary Clinton as “Champion of the Century” to thank her for “40 years of service to women and girls in this country.”
Or, maybe they should say, it’s for 40 years of pimping for Planned Parenthood.
Clinton touted her support of abortion on demand throughout her 2016 presidential campaign.
Last year, the Democratic party platform became the most extreme it has ever been regarding abortion. It called for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand in the United States and abroad.
