As Wendy Davis touts life story in race for governor, key facts blurred
The Dallas Morning News ^ | 1-19-14 | Wayne Slater

Posted on 01/19/2014 5:58:08 AM PST by slumber1

FORT WORTH — Wendy Davis has made her personal story of struggle and success a centerpiece of her campaign to become the first Democrat elected governor of Texas in almost a quarter-century.

While her state Senate filibuster last year captured national attention, it is her biography — a divorced teenage mother living in a trailer who earned her way to Harvard and political achievement — that her team is using to attract voters and boost fundraising.

The basic elements of the narrative are true, but the full story of Davis’ life is more complicated, as often happens when public figures aim to define themselves. In the shorthand version that has developed, some facts have been blurred.

I know FREEPERS are saying she doesn't have a chance in heck to be elected Governor. I just hope that this is true. You guys were saying the same thing about Virginia Governor too. Sometimes our arrogance makes us blind and then we are shocked when someone we thought had little chance actually wins.

There is nothing arrogant in not wanting a simple-minded liberal elected to any public office.

Our chances of winning are inversely proportional to the amount of election fraud the Demonic-rats manage to employ.

That is the ONLY reason that Cuccinelli lost.

I agree. What I mean by arrogant is because we ignore the candidate and just think they will never make it.

Naps was not saying it was arrogant not to want her elected, but that we can get a little bit on the hubristic side by knowing that we’re right and she’s a little sneaky, lying, delusional lefty who was propelled to prominence by the media because of her support for their sacred cause, unlimited abortion. So we can just shrug and write her off.

But if we just assume that nobody would ever vote for Wendy Davis and she doesn’t have a chance because she is a transparent liar and demagogue, we’re deluding ourselves. After all, a majority of the country voted for a transparent liar and demagogue...twice.

Sounds like she was a sleazy social climber who slept around a lot, and squeezed her paramours for everything they had:

Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. “It was ironic,” he said. “I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.”

Wendy Davis said that as a lawyer, she contributed too.

“I was a vibrant part of contributing to our family finances from the time I graduated to the time we separated in 2003,” she said. “The idea that suddenly there was this instantaneous departure after Jeff had partnered so beautifully with me in putting me through school is just absurd.”

In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part and conflicts that the couple could not overcome. The final court decree makes no mention of infidelity, granting the divorce solely “on the ground of insupportability.”

That happens all the time. It's more difficult to prove adultery, so those claims are dropped at trial; the case then proceeds on simpler grounds because both sides want to get divorced.

No, but it's arrogance in believing she has no chance. It's arrogance in thinking that Texas is so solidly crimson-red that they'd never elect someone like Wendy Davis as Governor.

Austin has always been a liberal enclave but now Houston and San Antonio have turned blue as well. There's profound demographic changes happening all across the country and Texas is no exception. You've got a growing Hispanic population, growing urbanization and added to this are a lot of recent out-of-staters who've come to Texas for job opportunities and brought their liberal voting habits with them.

Democrats now believe that Texas is turning purple, they might be right, and they're going to dump millions of $$$ into this race forcing Republicans to put up a fight.

Perry beat his opponent by 12% in 2010, a landslide year for the GOP. The numbers are definitely shifting in the Democrats' favor.

Her whole campaign is built on emotional hype over a bill that the media touted as a ban on some abortions after 20 weeks.

The GOPe politicians pushed the bill to hustle their conservative base.

The so called 20 week ban has a clause nullifying itself
in the case of an “undue burden” on a “pregnant woman” or any “group of pregnant women”. The law says “the application of the statute to those women shall be severed from the remaining applications of the statute....”

The only thing the Republican Establishment did was to regulate abortion clinics so the small time operators from the “back alley” days of abortion were shut down leaving the big time operators like Planned Parenthood as an “abortion monopoly”.

The abortion law controversy is a lot of hype so that the GOPe and Democrat political machines can raise a lot of money and support from people who feel strongly about abortion on both sides.

“I had a baby. I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old,” she testified in a recent federal lawsuit over redistricting.

That's not "blurring" facts, as Dallas News characterizes it. That's lying under oath in an effort to increase the emotional impact of her testimony.

Ah, so the “feminist icon” and savior of abortion “rights” and idol of the Girl Scouts of America got bailed out by marriage to a rich guy, was divorced because of adultery and turned away from raising her children...
Oh, ok, I get it...perfect libtard governor material.

From the article

“She did the right thing,” he said. “She said, ‘I think you’re right; you’ll make a good, nurturing father. While I’ve been a good mother, it’s not a good time for me right now.’”

What kind of mother walks away from her child saying “It’s not a good time for me right now?”

That’s the line the Republicans need to highlight.

If there is that much election fraud in states with R governors and R Sec of State (or Commonwealth) then an impeachment movement should be started.

Soros failed in this SoS quest. Now we need to make Republicans accountable.

She can leave out what she wants to, and the people of TX will understand the “privacy issue”. Don’t be surprised if she loses, or if she wins. Thus far, Abbott is not taking off even one glove.

As the late NY Senator Pat Moynihan put it: "boob bait for bubba" - tough-sounding legislation that doesn't actually have any teeth.

A Republican would have to be exceptionally lame to be 17 points worse than Romney, right?

This is the story Texas voters need to read:

In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part...

If she was a Republican candidate the press would dig up the boy-toy and trotted him through every media outlet in the state, but for Miss Golddigger that would be unseemly. Who was this interloper and what is HIS side of the story???

“One day at the end of a meeting, [her father] asked [his employee], ‘How do you like younger women? My daughter wants to go out with you,’” Jeff Davis said in an interview. “I was flattered so I took her out. We dated two or three years, then got married.” ...

After they married... they moved into a historic home in the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth.... Jeff Davis paid for her final two years at TCU. ...

When she was accepted to Harvard Law School, Jeff Davis cashed in his 401(k) account and eventually took out a loan to pay for her final year there. “I was making really good money then, well over six figures,” he said. “But when you’ve got someone at Harvard, you’ve got bills to pay, you’ve got two small kids. The economy itself was marginal. You do what you have to do, no big deal.”....

In November 2003, Wendy Davis moved out. ... Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. “It was ironic,” he said. “I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.” ....

Dru was in ninth grade. Jeff Davis was awarded parental custody. Wendy Davis was ordered to pay $1,200 a month in child support. “She did the right thing,” he said. “She said, ‘I think you’re right; you’ll make a good, nurturing father. While I’ve been a good mother, it’s not a good time for me right now.’”....

What a wholesome sweetie pie that Wendy Davis is. I've seen and known more than a few women like Wendy over the years and the men and children they've left behind as they scrambled up the ladder.

I’ve watched Rove speak of “wedge issues” in some of his television appearances.

These emotional symbolic issues suck the voters in at election time for a big disappointment later on when they realize the folks they elected were giving them the shaft.

Obamacare has abortion and birth control in it, along with other left-leaning bells and whistles, but many O supporters have awakened to the fact it makes them pay more for insurance.

That’s because Obamacare is really about bailing out the health insurance industry.

I know someone who left her young children for her husband to raise. She went out and had a fun time in the business world and rarely saw her children. That has been 30 years ago and then she suffered from early onset Alzheimer's disease. Now she is on a feeding tube and might as well be dead. Makes me wonder if sometimes people get payback for their evil deeds before they die.

........62% of Texans in a recent poll support SB5. “ABORTION”...........all by itself, will not get you elected to the Governors office in Texas. As the poll shows though, it can sure get you un-elected.

As she has been all her life, Wendy is desperate. Post 20 week abortion, more and more, is being seen for what it is. Namely, premeditated murder.

Bottom line, ABORTION, is the only horse the Dems and Wendy have in their corral to throw their saddle on.

“More importantly, this poll shows that banning abortion after 20 weeks of gestation — one of the provisions of SB5 — has the support of over 62 percent of Texas residents. Of course, these sorts of surveys often receive little attention from many media outlets.

Opposition to late-term abortion enjoys majority support across the country, not just Texas. This doesn't prevent Democrats from getting elected though.

Texas pro-lifers won a Pyrrhic victory with the toothless SB-5. Wendy Davis' filibuster may have failed but she got huge national exposure, most of it glowing from the MSM --and with this, lots of donated money from across the country. Abbott? Nobody outside of Texas even knows who he is.

Honestly, I don't think Davis will win but I'm afraid it's not going to be a blowout either. I think she's going to make Abbott put up a fight. And fights cost money.

Some groups may oppose abortion for purely demographic reasons. They want racial/ethnic quotas *and* a ban on abortion.

She's way better-looking than Abbott, and that counts for a lot in politics.

It’s been estimate in some articles it will cost upwards of $40 million for each
campaign. Expensive, yes. Abbot supposedly has some $27 million cash on hand
and raised something over $11 million in the last reporting qtr. Davis raise over
$12 million in the last six months and includes some $3 million given to her PAC.

Someone on another thread mentioned how the left has co-opted the language. Abortion becomes “women’s health”. At least half of the babies murdered are female. Doesn’t sound too healthy.

Don’t credit the Dems with Perry’s slim margin in 2010.

He lost his base here in Texas long ago but has stayed in office because there is no viable opposition.

A lot of us voted third party or just didn’t vote in the gubernatorial race, because Perry has backstabbed us too many times during his too many years in office.

Dems had nothing to do with it. Their candidate, a washed-up bald former Houston mayor, was pitiful. They weren’t even trying. And Rick is a good politician.

I do see Davis as a threat, but the details in the DMN article could sink her ship. Gotta get it out there.

Re: A single mother working two jobs, she met Jeff Davis, a lawyer 13 years older than her, married him and had a second daughter. He paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and her time at Harvard Law School, and kept their two daughters while she was in Boston. When they divorced in 2005, he was granted parental custody, and the girls stayed with him. Wendy Davis was directed to pay child support

Gadzooks! Unless she is caught in bed with two 12 years old boys or strangles a nine-year old Black quadriplegic girl on the Capitol steps... this will never see the light of day in the Democrat Party or drive by media--

And then they would present it as a triumph of the new, progressive woman Republicans have a war upon... one who won't stand in the way of her kids best interest!

Yeah, this article is actually pretty damaging. Ditching her kids is going to cost her some support she has with working mom swing voters (at least in theory anyways). I'd think a lot of female voters would see this as a turn-off but then again, I'm a man so what do I know?
