I didn't believe that Wendy Davis could go lower than her attack on Greg Abbott's use of a wheelchair. However, Abortion Barbie has gone even lower. No wonder that Texans are rejecting her in record numbers when she makes attacks on Greg Abbott, his wife and marriage.
Greg Abbott won't say whether he'd defend an interracial marriage ban—troubling but not surprising from someone who defends a "poll tax."— Wendy Davis (@WendyDavisTexas) October 20, 2014
Of course, the reality is that Abbott did answer the question -- just not to the satisfaction of the liberal editors of the liberal rag who were bound and determine to endorse the liberal candidate even though she is woefully underqualified for the job and unethical to boot.
“Right now, if there was a ban on interracial marriage, that’s already been ruled unconstitutional,” he told the paper. “And all I can do is deal with the issues that are before me … The job of an attorney general is to represent and defend in court the laws of their client, which is the state Legislature, unless and until a court strikes it down.”
Such laws are unambiguously unconstitutional. As Abbott noted later on, he made a conscious choice to do no more than note that fact and move on because such laws were definitively ruled unconstitutional long ago -- in fact, around the time that Abbott started elementary school. It is an absurd "gotcha" hypothetical and he simply wouldn't play the game. Good for him. He wants to talk about real issues.
And let's not forget who Greg Abbott is married to. She will be the first Latina first lady in the history of Texas -- something that Abbott has highlighted in his campaign, including in this add featuring his mother-in-law, who stood as his godmother when he converted to Catholicism.
But Wendy Davis, down by 15 points in the polls, is desperate enough to insinuate that her opponent is a racist. Personally, I find that more despicable than actually making the charge. It demonstrates her lack of integrity.
I look forward to the state of Texas giving Wendy what she deserves on November 4.
