Harry Reid Tap Dances
On The Head Of An Abortion Pin
Well, hardly a tap dance.
Harry Reid, Democrat Senator from Nevada, Real Estate Mogul and Milk-Dairy Magnate has some issues with the Supreme Court Ruling on Abortion:
WASHINGTON, April 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made a comment apparently disparaging the Supreme Court's decision on banning the gruesome procedure known as Partial Birth Abortion. When asked about the decision Senator Reid replied:
"I would only say that this is the only decision a lot of us wish that Alito weren't there and O'Connor were there."
And what's the slur directed at Justice Sam Alito? The Supreme Court's decision majority opinion was authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy - a Republican, yes - who - if you bother to look it up - has voted with both the "conservative" members of the Court and at other times voted with the "liberal" members of the Court. So why drag Sam Alito in? It's just red meat for Reid's pro-choice constituents.
Why is Reid pretending to be ashamed of the SCOTUS ruling and jumping on the "I'm a pro-choicer, too" bandwagon when he voted twice in his past to ban partial birth abortion? Who are you trying to fool, Harry?
What is Harry's voting record on abortion?
Let's take a peek, shall we. And yes, the bolding is mine:
Voted YES on banning partial birth abortions except for maternal life. (Mar 2003)
Voted YES on banning partial birth abortions. (Oct 1999)
Voted YES on criminal penalty for harming unborn fetus during other crime. (Mar 2004)
Voted YES on maintaining ban on Military Base Abortions. (Jun 2000)
Rated 29% by NARAL, indicating a pro-life voting record. (Dec 2003)
Yet look at his politically calculated response: "I would only say that this is the only decision a lot of us wish that Alito weren't there and O'Connor were there."
Awwwww, break out the tears Harry. You don't expect to be believed, do you? Are the words "consistency" and "sincerity" in your vocabulary, Harry? Have you ever heard those terms? Are you at all familiar with them?
Also very odd, from the perspective of how and why Liberals eat their own, somehow - magically, Reid receives a low 29% approval from NARAL - self-described "nation's leading advocate for privacy and a woman's right to choose - while that "Republican Tool" Joe Lieberman receives a 100% approval from NARAL and, Lieberman the opposite from that of Liberal Party "Leader" Reid Voted:
Voted NO on banning partial birth abortions except for maternal life. (Mar 2003)
Voted NO on banning partial birth abortions. (Oct 1999)
Voted NO on criminal penalty for harming unborn fetus during other crime. (Mar 2004)
Voted NO on maintaining ban on Military Base Abortions. (Jun 2000)
Rated 100% by NARAL, indicating a pro-choice voting record. (Dec 2003)
Just another in a long, never ending line of pure, rank, stinky Democrat Hypocrisy.
Will the media jump on this and ask Reid why the obvious hypocrisy and inconsistencies from his recent comments compared to how he voted? Do wild cornish game hens conduct orchestras performing Mozart? Not in my world.
I hear he still has plenty of acreage for sale...
