Chris Wallace talking to governors: We will get to Benghazi, but first we must talk about women’s health care issues. Gov Romney has said he wants to reverse Roe v Wade.....
Wallace is nailing them on Benghazi. He just stopped Udall from spouting the Administration talking points (i.e. we all need to pull together here and stop questioning our Commander-in-Chief). He just asked the Colorado Senator if the drone was armed.
THIS WEEK (ABC) George calls Goolsbee an Obama supporter, as if George has no bias...(keep in mind Economist like Goolsbee are Democrats, think Krugman, and the media(to sound un-bias) favorite quotes are from from Moody’s Analytics Chief Economist Mark Zandi, who helped Pelosi do the math to ruin the budget)

Reversing Roe V Wade is such a wonky argument althought it is a good one. The problem with it is that most people assume reversing Roe V Wade means ending abortion which is why it’s a loser for the GOP....even though it is actually the only way the abortion issue ever dies down.
Let’s review. Roe V Wade says that the right to an abortion is in the constitution. This is just not so!!! Reversing Roe V Wade would simply be staing the obvious.
Now, for the pro abortion crowd should Roe V Wade be reversed, the issue would simply be sent to the states in the same way the ‘death penalty’, ‘gay marriage’, and a host of other issues are sent to the states. In the end, the citezens of each state would vote on abortion much like they vote on the death penalty. My guess is a lot states would be pro choice with a few choosing to be pro-life. This process is normally referred to as ‘demoocracy.’
In this way, much of the ‘heat’ would be alleviated from the debate as the ‘people will have spoken.’ And, that’s the real problem with Roe V Wade...the people do not feel like they’ve had a chance to speak. This causes pent-up frustration and anger.
Now, once the people have spoken, the argument will next evolve into public funding for abortions. As a conservative with libertarian leanings I’m pro-choice but, do not think any public money should be used for abortions.
If Roe V Wade never pased, these issues would have been resolved by the end of the 1970’s but......we have activist courts who make law from the bench.
