Skip to comments.Bill Whitaker: Wendy Davis imbroglio isnít going to solve our stateís problems (she's got grit)

One conclusion from the peanut gallery: Anyone trying to dissect marriages gone bad, decent people going off in different directions and the vicious spin applied to even basic marital facts is going to find many accounts dont neatly add up. It would take a book the size of War and Peace to do justice to all parties in some failed marriages. That seems possibly the case with Sen. Davis early life, impressive as it is.
For instance, debate has ensued about whether she was really a single teenage mom or not. Some accounts suggest she got divorced from her first husband at age 19, though the Morning News says this divorce didnt actually happen till she was 21. The campaign acknowledges this but points out she and her first husband nonetheless separated when she was 19, that she filed for a divorce at 20 and that she finally got her divorce at 21.
So is she a teenage mom or not? Could well depend on your definition of teenage and separation or it could just depend on your political bias.

Bill, ya blew it by not getting the scoop. How about investigating to see if it was fraud or not.
Yep. Find the marriage and divorce records for thevcorrect dates then interview the ex-husband for the “good” stuff. Case closed.
There is a difference between honestly marrying a man because of love and marrying him because you are a gold-digging b!tch. Her forte seems to be the latter.
Right, "he hasn't walked a mile" in your shoes, has he Wendy?
Blah, blah, blah...............
The timeline actually looks pretty clear to me.
Who on earth is advising this woman—and obviously contributing money to her campaign?
Surely there aren’t enough people that dumb living and voting here to put her into office ..At least, I hope not.
I wonder if Bill was as incensed about Obama’s Kronies having the divorce custody records of Jack Ryan’s unsealed against both he and his ex-wife’s wishes?
Look to George Soros connected groups. They are in a very expensive campaign to flip Texas.
Bill must have a thing for lying Liberal skunks.
Funny that no one published that her bio was littered with obvious lies when she was prancing around in those pink shoes. The Houston Chronicle can’t find a thing wrong with any Democrat who loves abortion. What a waste of trees.
Well, I’ve been worrying about that happening for several years now-—just didn’t think about Soros or someone like him helping the cause.
Of course, amnesty will turn the whole country blue ...
This proves that ‘truth’ is a quality that leftists simply do not value.
> Of course, amnesty will turn the whole country blue ...
And Texas is the largest border state.
Texas is pivotal in the fight to turn the whole country blue.
If this weasel whore gets elected governor, expect the Texas border to be wide open and for illegals to vote without obstruction.
Read Ted Cruz’s Wiki bio and then Wendy Davis’ bio. It is to laugh.
If you run for office presenting your personal story as the most compelling reason for being elected, expect to have your personal story challenged, especially if you felt the need to exaggerate aspects of it.
Obama was unique in that he didn’t emphasize his public story, he emphasized a vague idea “hope” that could mean anything to anyone. Now that it’s been done and the general public is slowly realizing that their hopes weren’t realized, it will be very hard to replicate.
By the Waco article, it appears that it would have us sweep the Davis “inconsistencies” under the rug, and focus on the real problems facing the state. To that I say this: “Hey, she’s the one who brought them up.” And, to call therm “inconsistencies” is like describing Ted Bundy as being “unkind.” I say that Davis’ morally bankrupt attitude and history are examples of the problems we face today with people in power making decisions for us that have her same morally bankrupt mindset. Like him or not, George Bush senior said it best when he said that “Character matters.” The last five years of shenanigans in the white house certainly proved him right. And, by the way, Ted Bundy had “grit” too.
Exactly. We've seen this with Bill Clinton and all the other dems who get caught in lies and unethical behavior. As though the "elected official" Wendy Davis would be honest and ethical in her dealings, even though "private citizen" Wendy Davis is not.
Just another asshat Democrat journalists propagandizing. Blind or complicit, these liberal opinion pushers are morally bankrupt.
I think that the Wendy Davis Campaign and Battleground Texas need to bring Michelle Obama, Hillery Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and Elizabeth Warren to Texas to campaign for her.
Executive Summary. It doesn’t matter that Abortion Barbie is a gold-digging bitch who abandoned her children for her career. There are hungry people and women who need abortions. Abortion Barbie is just the person to help them.
What I've heard is that she barely won her election. Knowing her, I'd bet there was some voter fraud involved.
The problem I have with Abbott, who I will vote for in the March 4 primary, is his passitivity. He won’t think he has a serious opponent, and this woman Davis has much stealth support among the growing liberal pool in TX.
Lots of lipstick for this pig. The apologists are lost in the weeds again. “Grit” doesn’t replace brains. Killing babies won’t solve everything for Texas or the one issue wonder.
If the support for infanticide, and lies about her biography aren’t bad enough, according to her bio she was a Republican at the start of her career - a very progressive one I would assume. Gotta love those politicians that wake up one day and decide that bigger more intrusive government is better! I can understand the lunacy of the left’s promises infecting the youth and those forced to endure public school, but rational adults should know better.
I live in DFW and never heard of her until the infamous filibuster for death. I can’t wait to see the photo ops of her out hunting to show she supports the 2nd Amendment. And of course the obligatory visit to an urban church to demonstrate she is a woman of faith and principle.
Well, good luck in getting him to stoke up the conservatives.
This doesn't even involve unsealing sealed records. Seems like fair game to me, if Ryan's divorce records were fair game.
What I’ve heard is that she barely won her election.
She won in 2008 with 49.91% and in 2012 with 51.12%.
I have no doubts either!
Yeah, and never mind that it was the Dallas-Morning News that broke the story...not the Abbott campaign.
