What she doesn't do is deny them.

Sarah Palin treatment, anyone?

That might be a bit much. Sarah's special.

How about Jack Ryan?

Still too much?

Maybe Herman Cain treatment. Any anonymous voice from the shadows should meet journalistic standards.

Just the everyday typical gop war against women. She should stick to the demokkkrat play book and deny everything even if addressing at all. She hasn’t learned to turn it back against her opponent but she’ll learn quick. That is if she’s not in a drug or boozed up lather. Is it me or does anybody else find it odd that Mr. Davis got custody? Usually the mom is REAL bad news or willfully gives over custody. Are both the girls his? Is one from her “teen MOM” years? If the older one isn’t his biological child that makes it even weirder.

And one could have predicted it would come from Texas...one of the last bastions of liberty. We used to be able to include Virginia in that designation but sadly those days are gone.

When you can’t refute the truth, shoot the messenger.

This is a typical liberal woman candidate ploy :

To get the woman voter sympathy.

Right, blame the messenger for the derogatory information.

Someone once shouted to Harry Truman, “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” Truman’s response was, “I give them the truth, and they think it is Hell!”

Truth about Wendy Davis is putting her through Hell. All over again, first for living in the sheltering comfort of Hell, then for somebody else recounting the experience to everybody. People do not like to be reminded of their transgressions.

Wouldn’t be so bad for themselves, if they would just own up to the past, and be contrite about their misbehavior.

LOL....this bleach blonde gold digger is caught lying like Obama and the Clintons, and this is the best she can come up with? Greg Abbott is being mean?

She lied about how old she was when she divorced the guy who got her pregnant as a teenager, lied about living in a trailer park (a couple of months after the divorce, not years), lied to a court of law, never mentioned that the sugar daddy she married next paid her bills and paid her way through college and Harvard Law, after which she divorced him and gave him her two daughters to raise.

What a low-down skank. Certainly NOT an example of an independent Texas woman, and no one you would want in your family.

Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Greg Abbott a parapalegic? I think he may have some thoughts on the struggles of everyday life. This skank is another national media-created unaccomplished libtard politician whose first inclination is to point the finger of blame outward once reality meets up with the media's (and Abortion Barbie's) fawning lies.

One daughter, hers from previous marriage, chose to stay with him, but she was about 20 at the time of divorce and could do what she wanted. The other daughter was his, and was about 15 at the time. Mom said she willingly gave him custody.

During her 2nd divorce, in her husbands filing he claimed she was guilty of adultery. That charge was omitted from the final decree, but what is stunning is that he not only obtained custody of their child, but he also obtained custody of her child from her 1st marriage. Do you know how hard it is for a man to obtain child custody in Texas courts? Subsequent to their divorce her 2nd husband obtained a restraining order against her prohibiting her use of illicit drugs and alcohol prior to and during child visitations. That my friends is the “real” story of Wendy Davis.

That 20 year old knew what her mom was like, apparently, to go live with step-dad.

Makes one wonder why, exactly....what was Wendy Davis like that her own child chose the step-dad?

Sure HOPE so.

I thought she’s the new left darling, and thus would have attracted $$$ and media coverage and cover-up for her.

Dang. I musta forgot. She didn’t want to be “punished” with a child. If she’s such a strong “pro kill the fetus” type, why didn’t she? Or is she using the “I didn’t have access” meme to show what a burden it is to be “punished” with a child. Of course the “no access” won’t work at this point. I’m sure planned parenthood would have ponied up the money.

She has attracted dollars. Media coverage to some extent has exposed some of her faults.

http://www.newschannel10.com/story/24462804/a-look-at-texas-campaign-fundraising-totals

Governor’s race:

Greg Abbott, Republican, $11.5 million raised, $27 million cash-on-hand

Wendy Davis, Democrat, $12.2 million raised, $9.5 million cash-on-hand

Davis’s total includes some $3 million plus to her PAC. Whereas Abbott’s
total is only to his campaign organization.

She's ambitious. Between her law career and politics, I'm guessing that she had little time for her kids.

Plus there's the matter of her adulterous affair. I'm guessing that the daughters didn't want to be around mama's new boyfriend. Possibly with good reason. There's also the matter of her alleged alcohol and drug abuse.

Wendy ‘Abortion Barbie’ Davis and her handlers were under the delusion that she could mount a successful campaign around her ‘heroic stand’ for abortion rights. Well that quickly fizzled out almost as soon as she entered the race. With the reality that she has no other major accomplishment to point to, they are now pinning their hopes on her ‘sob story’ of a life narrative.

Anyone with two brain cells would know that if you’re going to base your campaign on your life story, that someone, somewhere is going to investigate that story. That’s what the Dallas Morning News did, and lo and behold, some things don’t quite add up. Davis could have simply apologized for the inconsistencies and it would have disappeared. Instead she is doubling down and now blaming her likely opponent who had nothing to do with it.

“Bait Car” (simulated dialog)
Perp: It’s my cousins car. He said I could borrow it. I have his permission, I didn’t steal it.

Police officer: Sorry pal, this car is the property of the _______ police department. We parked it there.

Perp: No, you’re wrong, it’s my cousin’s car. He let’s me borrow it all the time. We kind of share it.

Police officer: Why do you think the car just quit and locked you in it?

Perp: That’s an anti theft device that I forgot to turn off.

“Cops”

Perp: What drugs? They aren’t mine. It’s my friend’s car, it must be his dope. I don’t do dope. I was just on my way to bible study at my church. I am shocked that my friend does drugs!

Police officer: Sure, then why do you have this pipe in your pocket?

Perp: Say what? How did that get there. It’s not mine. My friend must have put it there. I’m gonna get myself some new friends.

Police officer: You’ll make all kinds of new friends in prison.
