Easy to take positions when you know that you’ll never have to defend them or vote for them.
You know, I have to wonder why, exactly, the GOP keeps pushing abortion when they haven’t done anything about abolishing it like they say they will.
I mean, if ever there was a time to do it, it would have been when they had a supermajority in Congress, W. in the White House, and a pretty conservative SCOTUS.
I mean, if I didn’t know any better, I’d start thinking that maybe they *want* to keep abortion legal simply because it gives them a ready-made issue to back with a bloc of voters who aren’t going to change their minds on it.
As for Santorum, pushing a social agenda is career suicide in this economy. People don’t have time to worry about gays in the military when they’re busy trying not to lose their houses.
