Barack Obama, our next President

A walk in Wendy Davis’ shoes: The woman behind the long filibuster

Before state Sen. Wendy Davis began filibustering a restrictive abortion bill in the Texas Capitol last week, she grabbed her pink running shoes. She may need to lace them up again, because another special session of the Texas legislature is underway again this week.

“I thought maybe I might need something with a little more support, so I grabbed these on the way out the door,” Davis tells The Fine Print during an interview at her father’s small theater in Fort Worth, Texas, where she once waited tables.

“These are actually my running shoes. They're dusty from the trail around Ladybird Lake,” she says, pointing to her Mizuno running shoes sitting on the table. Davis, a Harvard-educated attorney and single mother, wore the shoes as she stood for 11 hours and successfully blocked the passage of a bill that calls for banning abortions in Texas after 20 weeks into a pregnancy. Davis smiled when asked whether she used a catheter to avoid leaving the Senate floor, saying:“I came prepared.”

Since the filibuster, Davis has gained national acclaim among Democrats.

“I never could have predicted the enthusiasm, the energy, the courage of people in Texas who showed up at the Capitol on Tuesday to exercise their voices in this very important conversation,” Davis says.

But she also gained some political enemies—the most prominent being Texas' Republican governor, Rick Perry, who got personal in his criticism of Davis, who became a young mother when she was 18.

"It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters," Perry said, alluding to Davis in a speech before a national Right to Life conference last Thursday. Perry has also called for a special session to reconsider the bill that Davis blocked, and the bill is expected to pass then.

Asked to respond to Perry’s comment, Davis says “it's very unfortunate and sad that people's personal health and safety are at risk for his political purposes.”

“It's Rick Perry and his political aspirations, and I think [Texas voters are] growing weary of being used as a pawn in that game,” she says, referring to Texas voters.

All hope is not lost in Texas.

I just wish she hadn't posted where she goes jogging, you know how sick some of these rightwingers are. I hope she gets a security detail.

<quoted text>They love Bush in Africa -
Popular in Africa: Bush has given more aid than any other US president
When President Bush came to power in 2001, the US spent $1.4bn a year on humanitarian and development aid in Africa. By 2006, the figure had quadrupled to $5.6bn a year. And it is likely to get bigger. The centerpiece of Mr Bush's aid to Africa is the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Pepfar), a five-year,$15bn Aids prevention and treatment programme launched in 2003. His most recent budget proposes doubling the funding to $30bn over the next five years.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/afric...
Is that the 'charity' you were referring to? Our hard earned tax dollars?
As for the 'okay under Bush, bad under Obama?' I was asking that question with regards to the NSA spying.
"I put the program in place to protect the country, and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed," Bush said in the interview, which is scheduled to air on Monday afternoon. "I think there needs to be a balance [between security and privacy] and as the president described, there is a proper balance."
"Our hard earned tax dollars?" That sentence is not correct. This is how it should read, "Our hard earned money taken by taxes!"

Can't tell him nothing. I've said the same thing a few months back when gun control was their new cry for injustice. How can Chicago enforce gun laws when, the surrounding states have loose gun measures. All one has to do is cross the border into the neighboring state, buy their guns & bring them back across the border. This is common sense shit that seems taboo to the uncommon!

<quoted text> It would make no difference if that man was Muslim. Given the fact that he's American born, makes him American first. So, if he were Muslim, he would be an American Muslim but, I guess the constitution doesn't mean shit to you when it doesn't fit you ideological preference. Hypocritical at the least! Especially when he's a self admitted Christian with a 20 year background in the Christian church. That's evidence, proof unlike anything you present surrounding you conspiracy theories!
The hate-mongering congregation Obama attended for 20 years isn't what I would call a church.
Obama is a muslim. Obama is a Suni muslim. Obama is a Wahhabist Suni muslim.

Obama isn't "American-born". If he were, there wouldn't be any need to post an obviously fraudulent birth certificate on the White House website. They would have posted a real birth certificate.

Since you want to talk about the Constitution...

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

How's the investigation into the government spying on the American population going?
What's that? Did you say everyone has been distracted by all the attention given to Snowden?

The truth is, Democrats are too full of themselves to not start a war with the American people, and too ignorant to avoid starting it. That's why Janet Napolitano is buying more tanks that Patton had under his command, more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima, and enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for twenty years.

You do know that the winners will certainly hang the losers, right? If it's your neck the rope is being put around, don't whine. After all, you started it. Take it like a man.

That video did spark protests cross the MiddleEast. But Carol demands that it was impossible in Benghazi. Everyone had weapons in Libya from the rebellion. How many attackers were they? Did they gather to attack the Consulate or did they gather to protest? That was not immediately clear.
There was zero pint to hide anything regarding a protest or a planned terror attack. It was two months before the election. Obama has a good record against terrorism. If political gain was the desire, why not paint it as terrorism & we need to continue Obama's program of killing Al Qaeda with drones, especially with Romney's stance on the use of drones in Pakistan & his zero experience in fighting terror or foreign policy.
The sad part about Benghazi, other than the deaths of 4 Americans is he pathetic attempt for you & Republicans to try to make political gain from it. Shameful.
are you kidding me? you are so stupid that you still think the video was watched by a bunch of moslems? really? alrighty then. I don't know why any one ever reads one of your posts. I for one, will never waste my time again. You have convinced me that you have not a clue what goes on anywhere. It is so sad that one follows an ideology of lies to the death of their own person. Sad indeed.
