Wendy Davis gains nothing from engaging Bristol Palin on the subject of responsible motherhood
The Dallas Morning News ^ | January 30, 2014 | Tod Robberson, Editorial Writer

Posted on 01/30/2014 6:47:34 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Wendy Davis needs to remember one important thing: She is running for governor of Texas, and for now, her focus needs to be on the Democratic primary. Period. Which means she doesn’t have to answer to Rush Limbaugh or any other GOP commentator on the national stage. She is not vying for Rush’s vote, nor is she going to win over the kinds of Texas voters who listen regularly to Rush Limbaugh. So who cares what he thinks?

Doubly so for Bristol Palin. The daughter of embarrassingly disastrous GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has zero political insights that are worth anyone’s time. None. Her only claim to fame is that she emerged pregnant and unmarried just as her mom was chosen as John McCain’s running mate. Bristol got her own reality show, which also was a disaster. She was on Dancing with the Stars.

But because Bristol blogged last week about Wendy Davis, drawing comparisons between their incomparable experiences with single motherhood, Bristol has managed to draw Wendy Davis onto today’s front page of The New York Times. (Bristol’s blog item came up in a video interview, and Davis responded to the interviewer’s question, thereby giving Bristol undeserved traction.) Once again, the nation is talking about Davis’s imprecise personal history. And yet, nobody seems to have anything new or insightful to say. It’s all the same rehash....

Don't you love these news people always advising politicians on what to do? What office has Tod won? Hahahaha!

"...embarrassingly disastrous GOP vice presidential candidate..." Do you realize how badly John McCain would've lost without her?

Who is her primary competition?
Is she a lock for the D ballot or just a media dream?

So Britol Palin was irresponsible? Because she didn’t abort her baby? Because the father was a douchey jackass who mocked her family?

Can we talk about the irresponsible actions of Barack Hussein Obama’s mama?

Thought not.

She was only a “disaster” because they were able to make fun of her like junior high children and get away with it. This was so because more than half the voting public has this same mentality.

His advice is actually good. Fortunately, these libs are too dumb to take it. They can’t resist engaging Limbaugh, even though doing so will puzzle and alienate swing voters.

She made her life story (false as it was) the talking point of her campaign.

She identifies with single mamas (although she thinks more should be aborting their kids, in the third trimester).

Really??? Bristol Palin was a single teenage mom just as Davis claimed to be. Oh well haters got to hate.

The left trashes her because they know that Sarah was the only one in that disaster of a campaign that actually wanted to WiN..the rest of them tanked it so that Obama could win..that is what they wanted from the start..the left just can’t stand the fact that five years later Sarah lives in their commie heads rent free

Oh, I somewhat agree with his advice. You almost never “punch down” in a situation like this, it makes you look small and petty. Bristol is a private citizen, like most of the rest of us. Now if Gov. Palin had commented, she might be well-advised to reply. I don’t see State Senator Davis replying to the thousands of other bloggers who are commenting, so why push back on Miss Palin? Trolling for contributions using the Palin name?

Remember that for a while the 2008 race turned into an Obama against Palin fight, Obama’s advisers could not get him to quit engaging and responding to the vice presidential candidate.

The one who was struggling to drag McCain across the finish line, to victory.

Sarah Palin is brilliant.

She has Bristol write about Davis, and Davis stupidly fell for it and responded and came off as amateurish and unprepared to be elected to the town water board, much less Governor of the biggest red state in the U.S.

And Bristol is her own woman. She's 23, so it's not like she's some kid posting on MySpace, and Gov. Palin can completely pop the popcorn and watch Davis go down in flames without posting from her powerful Facebook platform.

Wendy Davis is nothing but a useful idiot, a foot soldier for the leftist Battleground Texas folks marching on orders from Obama/OFA/DNC to desperately try and turn Texas blue.

I was planning to sit that election out, but I voted for the senile senator because Palin was on the ticket.

The sugar baby Davis got caught lying. Pure and simple she used her body to get through law school. She abandoned her children so she could go to college and she lied about her past to make herself look like a victim who overcame great odds. She had a silver spoon in her mouth but it just was not hers. There are a lot of truths in her history but they do not make her look good or honorable or honest.

She is simply a goldbricking liar.

In Wendy’s case it doesn’t matter if she gets involved in losing, pointless for her, debates. She is going to lose no matter what she does.

Leftist love to gloss over controversies of their candidates, like Wendy is a fraud; we all know it, so let’s move on. Problem is she is still a fraud, and shouldn’t be moving on anywhere.

If Wendy can’t take the heat of a little national attention, she should run for something more suited to her status, like dog catcher.

Whose sleuthing down the streets of Dem cities, lying to everybody she meets, whose faking out the minds of her dummies, everyone knows its Wendy.
And Wendy tells stormy lies, flashing her mascara eyes, and likes to see babies die, for womens rights, its her delights.

What a joke this Wendy Davis has turned out to be! Davis is using pure Alinsky tactics, like a good Commie: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In this case, they make Sarah Palin the human face of the opposition. By personalizing it, it causes the opposition to "come out of the woodwork" in support of Sarah Palin. They can all be painted with the same broad brush. Then it allows the demonization process. Those who want to be on the side of good will 100% oppose those who are painted as bad. That's the tactic.

I say, turn the tables on them. If I could do the photo shop, I would show Wendy Davis punching Pope Francis in the stomach. The headline would be "Wendy Davis Punches Pope Francis Over Free Birth Control." In my case, I can only ridicule her this way:

Wendy Davis Punches Pope in Nose Over Free Contraceptives

Yes, because “disasters” always ignite the party base and cause campaign signs to be made with the VP on top...

Actually Windy Davis was responding to Bristol’s blogpost or facebook comment to Windy, wherein she defends proLife, and opposes Windy’s stand for abortion.

(That would be WEndy with an “i”. :)
