Wendy Davis hits back at Bristol Palin
The Politico ^ | January 28, 2014 | Tal Kopan

Posted on 01/28/2014 1:22:34 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Texas gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis brushed off criticism about her life story from Bristol Palin, saying that nothing Palin accused her of was true.

Davis was responding to a blog post from the daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin, who wrote last week amid questions about the timeline of Davis’s personal biography, slamming her for allegedly leaving her kids behind with her ex-husband after finishing law school.

“Gosh, children are sooo inconvenient, huh? I’m glad my mother didn’t put motherhood on the shelf when she was elected to City Council, then became our mayor, then governor,” Palin wrote, addressing her comments to liberals. “I know you would rather think about Wendy Davis, so let’s get back to her. She’s more your type of woman. She left her kid, husband, made it into a false ‘made-for-tv-movie-type tale’ and then demanded that Texans have the right to kill babies. That’s the woman you libs can really get behind!”(continued)

Punching down at a private individual? Did you learn that from Mr. Obama, Wendy?

“Punching down at a private individual? Did you learn that from Mr. Obama, Wendy? “

I suspect that Wendy figured that one out all by herself.

There’s nothing “allegedly” about her leaving her kids and husband. There’s a court record.

Heee heee! I was thinking the same thing. The more time she spends shadow boxing, the further down the drain she goes.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving twit than WD.

Wendy lowers her own status by “Barking Back” at the bloggings of a 22 year old private citizen. Yes, it’s Bristol Palin, but she has not been elected to anything. Bristol must’ve really struck a nerve for Wendy to react that way. This only elevates Bristol’s status. I can see the day where Bristol could become a Talking Head on certain news shows, but not now, during the O years. All in good time!

Wendy Davis is nothing more than a stalking horse for Hillary. In 2016 the rats will discard Davis as they compare St. Hillary is to the trashy troll that is Davis.

And they expect Texas women will say, “See? Hillary is truly a feminist supporting the cause for women everywhere.”

The rats might as well have telegraphed this.

Wendy Davis for no reasons whatsoever is going out of her way to attack a private citizen who has done nothing at all to her.

In the end, it is just another brutal attack on the Palin family, who are doing nothing except attempting to raise their families in private outside of the public view.

Exactly! Barbie-wendy broke the most basic rule of PR by even responding - and now she’s elevated Bristol to the level of a Texas gubenatorial candidate (which has a nice ring to it...) So now she’s just about guaranteed that the whole issue will live on, when otherwise even most of us were hoping she’d just go away.

The heck of it is, it’s all true, so she not only comes across looking like a dope, but a lying dope.

Popcorn! We need more!

Bristol is a little more than a completely private citizen since her TV stint (Dancing with the Stars, Palin's Alaska) and her mom's prominence, and I believe she herself is not afraid of retorts. Certainly, we are not shy aout discussing Meghan McCain.

That said, Wendy Davis is flailing, and she is looking for a bogeyman to demonize. Bristol Palin is kind of a weak target. Davis' M.O. is to paint herself the victim of unfairness. Normally, I'd say, bring it back to the issues. However, in Texas, I think the hypocrisy and major moral failings have to be rammed down her throat, enough to disgust 80% of the electorate in that state, driving down Dem participation in general statewide.

The TRUTH is defining her, and she doesn't like it.

LOL. Wendy Davis, lover of infanticide, suddenly starts targeting private citizens?

Oh, and a young girl at that?! :)

Wendy, you’re finished as a candidate. Maybe you can get appointed to some low level crap in the lame duck Clown’s withering team’s bureaucracy.

You’re gonna be beaten by a handicapped guy you and your team mocked.

How’s it feel, failure?

Wendy Davis should “man up”. Critics were far more catty and misogynist with Sarah Palin (and still are).

Davis might be a Harvard grad with a multi-million dollar campaign war chest, but her run is starting to resemble Christine O’Donnell’s / Sharron Angle’s. Very, very tone-deaf.

What an idiot, saying that she (Davis) will always be the most important woman in her daughters’ lives. Just taking that gift for granted shows her to be arrogant beyond belief, but it probably also means she is a liar.

I think Wendy would have had a better shot at a Senate seat.
The national MSM doesn’t get as excited about state offices. If they could get her to Wash DC, they would be ecstatic.

Fair is fair. Palin took the first shot. This might wind up being a Twitter flame war between the two. I don't know about you but I'm going to start the popcorn. It might get good.

Don’t at all be surprised when Bristol runs for statewide or national office in the future.

Can you imagine how mad the liberals will be when Sarah is President of the United States and Bristol is in the US Senate?

It’s pretty obvious that Davis has killed at least one of her offspring and is spending the rest of her life trying to justify that murder.

In the end, it is just another brutal attack on the Palin family, who are doing nothing except attempting to raise their families in private outside of the public view.

Here's what Davis said:

"With all due respect to Ms. Palin, of course, nothing that was said in that tweet is true. I’m very proud of the mother I have been to my daughters. I have always been and will always be the most important female in their lives. They are the most important thing to me and I’m very proud I’ve been able to be a role model, a friend, a mother to these two beautiful girls I’ve raised."

Davis shouldn't have responded to Palin at all, but it's hard to call that a "brutal attack on the Palin family," or even an "attack" whatsoever.

A general rule of public relations is to ignore those below you, lest you elevate them and give them a podium, which Senator Davis has done here. If I blog about Wendy Davis should she respond to me, too? Miss Bristol Palin has never been elected to office that I’m aware of. Will she respond to a tweet or post from Piper, I wonder?

In repentance, yes.
She’s been lied to like most of us - “God will never forgive you for that”. But, that’s a lie.

They’re rather like alcoholics, trying to make sure everyone else in the room is drunk, too, in order to not be the one in the wrong.

Now THAT would be awesome..just seeing liberals commit mass suicide if that happened would be the coolest thing EVER. Bristol is a smart girl and she has a good head on her shoulders..she hasn’t done any political commentary on TV..yet, but I think she should..she is very intelligent. I follow her blog and her facebook page as well and even though she gets her share of haters, she also has a good amount of supporters too..her son is also adorable

Excuse me, but when someone leads a statement with the phrase, “With all due respect,” it only means one thing. It means the really bad word that begins with “F”followed by You.

And that is exactly what Davis said to Bristol.
