Think you underestimate the intelligence of pro-choice conservatives and moderate Democrats.
Simply stating "I am for life" leaves no room for biased interpretation. Pro-choice Americans appreciate life. They are alive, too, after all.
That statement could also sway moderate Democrats and even some in the black community who are soul searching about their affiliation with a party who doesn't represent their values.
What's wrong with simply "I am for life"?
Right.

Then next on the list... capital punishment!

Or... we can go to Arizona's death panels!

Hey, and maybe even gun control can squirt its way through!

Well, my goodness...have you forgotten so easily the 111 Democrats who gave Bush the authority to use military force against Saddam because they, too, publicly stated numerous times under the Clinton administration that Saddam was, in fact, a clear and present danger not only to the U.S. but to the entire world and that a regime change was absolutely necessary...not to mention the UN believed that Saddam still had WMDs and the Democrats had been briefed by the same Intel as Bush and every civilized country in the world - that Saddam still had WMDs?
Or do you always have a biased short memory?
Weasels use deception as a defense mechanism for self-preservation.

Remember Baldwin saying that.
Just like GW Bush. Even die-hard liberals said publicly that he was very intelligent and articulated his views quite well with small groups - and was extremely warm and likeable.
Unfortunately, he just wasn't a good public speaker.
What does his poor ability to speak in public have to do with sending troops in kill and invade a sovereign country son?

Oh I know! In your world, that's gibberish!

Joe McCarthy was responsible for having hundreds of people in the movie industry, teachers, and others BLACKLISTED.
Last time I checked those weren't sensitive government jobs.

Where Joe and therest of his followers were wrong is that they tried to punish people who believed in communism. See here in the United States of America the Constitution says people are allowed to be communists.
Please reiterate how McCarthy was going to punish anyone? These were hearings not court proceedings. McCarthy was a loudmouth, but still correct.
