In a shocking display of cruelty, MSNBCs Zachary Roth attacked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in an article under the headline: "No One Pushes Greg Abbott Around." Abbott, who is in a wheelchair, is the Republican gubernatorial candidate running against Wendy Davis. MSNBCs Roth goes on to write, Put simpler: Its hard to turn a guy in a wheelchair into a villainno matter his record. This incident is not the first time left-of-center advocates for Wendy Davis have crossed lines in using Abbott's disability. The pro-Wendy Davis group Battleground Texas made headlines when a leader from the group was caught on tape in an undercover James O'Keefe video saying, "I'm wondering how this is going to work out, since he's in a wheelchair and most of the slogans are 'Stand with Wendy.'" Another snippet of the video revealed a Wendy Davis supporter at an event at an Austin, Texas Democrats club saying, "He's not good looking, he doesn't have a personality, and he's in a wheelchair." The crowd laugh and applauded.

Ugly people. No wonder the chant of her supporters in the state capitol rotunda was, “Hail, Satan!” That’s who the ungodly follow.
Maybe turnabout is fair play. Perhaps a headline about Wendy....something like “Wendy Davis’ election plans were NOT Aborted in the Tuesday Primaries.”
The only worry I see about Abortion Barbie is that she will be too weak to become the progressive funding sinkhole that would suck money from other nationally important races.
I’m not looking forward to Abortion Barbie’s attacks from now til November! It’s going to be a long, hateful campaign.
they’ll be cry’n when he rolls over abortion Barbie on the way to the governors house.
The democrat candidate says nothing so the media keeps it up. The republicans control the Texas senate. They should censure her and tell her to knock it off. But, no. Like always, the republicans sit around and take it.
It’s going to get ugly. Abbott should try and take the high road and let the b!tch rant and look stupid.
I don’t know if you took a look at the Texas Vote yesterday, but Abbott’s vote was about 3 times that of Davis. I wouldn’t worry too much about what the loons at MSNBC say. Besides, nobody watches MSNBC.
Taking the high road is how the Republicans lose.
The primary last night had a horrible turnout (dems blame the weather) - with about 1,300,000 voting Republican and less than 500,000 voting dem.
There sure was alot of MSNBC antics enacted by Breitbart against Stockman...they are ones to talk....
That’s true. Reps play nice and usually get their butts kicked. I think he should at least try before descending into the muck.
I’ve been around Greg Abbott a number of times in past years, and he is nice looking and does have a sense of humor and good personality - and I forget the wheelchair is there as it’s not important as to who he is. When he wins in the supreme court over Holder as he has done, the wheelchair is not mentioned in the decision of the supreme court when they hammer Holder and hand Abbott the win. You won’t find, “Abbott of Texas wins over Holder except Abbott is in a wheelchair so he loses.”
Not long ago, MSNBC was added to my cable network so for the first time I could watch MSNBC. I have watched it twice and was amazed something like that could be on TV. Watched Hardball and the man who comes on after him. Both those programs spend all their time talking trash about Republicans. It’s like Comedy Central listening to them. If something happened to them to put them in a wheel chair, I wonder if they would find that “funny” and make jokes about their disability. Would they lose their show because they were in a wheelchair? Of course not, they would sue that company if they dumped them due to being in a wheelchair.
The left is all about celebrating diversity.
Until you dare disagree with them.
But it’s pretty easy to turn a souless woman who filibusters for the barbaric practice of late term abortion into one.
WD also said that Abbot had never walked in her shoes.
Now the network is just plain stupid and cruel.
