I doubt the Republicans plan to do anything about abortion except use evangelical voters.
Would you agree with this?
Unless the Supreme Court reversed roe v wade themselves, Congress is the only ones who can change the law. Even with a republican-controlled congress, it's next to impossible to get enough democrats on board to get a bipartisan majority vote. Also, not all republicans are pro life or are on the fence.

Several bills addressing this issue are in committee during each Congressional term to pass legislation protecting the fetus from the moment of conception. But, again, it's very difficult to get enough people on board to overturn this law and win over enough of the population.

Democrats pass major legislation in a strictly partisan way but Republicans know that's not how Congress is supposed to work. And there has to be enough of an outcry on the part of the people.

Voters will never have a say on the issue of abortion other than writing or calling our representatives to change the law.

<quoted text>Democrats jumping ship now critical of Rice's Benghazi explanation, amid more damaging evidence. Many Congressional democrats are distancing themselves from the Obama administration’s explanation of the Benghazi, amid mounting evidence that suggests the information was revised by the obama administration to intentionally mislead Americans..
The lame stream media will sooner or later along with other democrats, eventually throw obama under the bus to save Hillary from Benghazi and get her elected.

The hearings are nothing but an embarassment for the Repugnants.

They have nothing and they know it.

Obama is laughing at them.

Their own witnesses have all said, to a person, that there was no time for any aid to arrive.

The real question is what was our ambasador doing in Bengazi, and not in Tripoli, where our embassy is??

But they can't ask that, because it's National Security and the door is closed.

Even Repugnants aren't traitor enough to breech that line.

Bush did not lie about anything. He presented the evidence of Intel to Congress and Congress - including Democrats - voted to give him permission to take down Saddam.

Only the weasels lied. Come to think of it, they lied for the same reason Obama and Hillary lied - political gain. Kind of a pattern in your party.

Hope that makes you proud.

Selling the war: Iraq the reasons. Some say there was no reason for the war. This is untrue. Many reasons were given for it, just no good one. Here are a dozen of them grace of Bush, Cheney, the neocons from the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), and the 2002 AUMF.
WMD
Saddam Hussein behind 9/11
Saddam Hussein connected with al Qaeda
Fighting terrorists there so we don’t have to fight them here

Saddam Hussein was a bad man
Iraqi violations of UN Resolutions
The 1993 assassination attempt against GHW Bush

<quoted text> "Gov. Pat Quinn (D-IL), unlike so many other governors across the country, decided to responsibly deal with his state’s budget gap by raising revenue to offset some of the impact of severe budget cuts. Amongst the tax increases Quinn and the Illinois legislature approved was an increase in the state corporate income tax rate from 4.8 percent to 7 percent."... "In response to the tax change, the multinational corporation Caterpillar has threatened to move jobs out of Illinois." ..."By increasing its corporate income tax rate to 7 percent (which is coupled with a 2.5 percent property tax), Illinois still has a lower rate than Iowa, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, and Minnesota, and has a rate roughly equal to that of Alaska.
But, more importantly, Illinois’ rate is only that high on paper. Much like the federal corporate income tax, Illinois’ corporate tax is riddled with loopholes and giveaways, which allow Caterpillar to drive its effective tax rate all the way down to just 1.4 percent."
http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/03/28/1... So, place the blame for some of Illinois' economic problems where they belong--a conservative Illinois state legislature that bought into the libertarian flawed theory that smaller government and austerity measures are the bitter , but necessary pill for future economic health when it is really a poison pill to economic viability--also, blame multi-national Caterpillar for its poor support of the local working community that made it into a world manufacturing giant and robbing the Illinois state budget by not paying its fair share of taxes via tax loopholes.
Illinois is an economic disaster area.

Unemployment rate = 9.5%

Attaboy, Gov. Pat Quinn!!!

Of course, you're clueless about Roe v.Wade and the Supreme Court decision on it. "Myth 2: American women are able to have legal abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states.

Fact: That wasn’t true when the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973 and it’s not true now. In Roe, the court ruled that women have a right to abortion during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy and the state cannot restrict the procedure. In the third trimester, which encompasses the period after the point of fetal viability, the state may prohibit abortion as long as it is still permitted if the life or health of the mother is at risk."

My response was to Lincoln who asked a serious question about changing the laws on abortion.

But your post reminded me of a popular doll in the 60s for some reason. Her name was Chatty Kathy. That's probably why.

Bush lied in a State of the Union speech.

that is a fact, not speculation.

For you to deny it proves you don't care a whit about the truth, only defending a liar.

Study: Bush, aides made 935 false statements in run-up to war

WASHINGTON (CNN)-- President Bush and his top aides publicly made 935 false statements about the security risk posed by Iraq in the two years following September 11, 2001, according to a study released Tuesday by two nonprofit journalism groups.

"In short, the Bush administration led the nation to war on the basis of erroneous information that it methodically propagated and that culminated in military action against Iraq on March 19, 2003," reads an overview of the examination, conducted by the Center for Public Integrity and its affiliated group, the Fund for Independence in Journalism.

According to the study, Bush and seven top officials -- including Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice -- made 935 false statements about Iraq during those two years.

The study was based on a searchable database compiled of primary sources, such as official government transcripts and speeches, and secondary sources -- mainly quotes from major media organizations. See CNN viewers' reactions to the study »

The study says Bush made 232 false statements about Iraq and former leader Saddam Hussein's possessing weapons of mass destruction, and 28 false statements about Iraq's links to al Qaeda.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/01/23/bush.i...

----------

Bush lied and stampeded the nation to an unnecessary war.

His legacy will forever be stained by that piece of stupidity that cost America dearly in lives and treasure.

Let's ignore all the walking wounded who've returned damaged from Bush's wars, ok??

After all, Saddam was a bad man. That makes all those dead and wounded Americans worth it.

You're a sad one, smokey. Destroy your health, yet complain that anti-smoking ads are too PC and we're all to hard on you smokers.

That's just twisted.
