Dems Urged to Reach Out to Pro-Life Voters
"WASHINGTON -- Democrats need to reach out to voters who oppose abortion rights and promote candidates who share that view, the head of the party said Friday.
Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told a group of college Democrats that their party has to change its approach in the debate over abortion.
"I think we need to talk about this issue differently," said Dean. "The Republicans have painted us as a pro-abortion party. I don't know anybody in America who is pro-abortion."
Stop it Dean! You're cracking me up! ha, ha, haaa, heee hooo.....hrmmp! ah...snort!
Sorry Mr. Dean, continue.
"We do have to have a big tent. I do think we need to welcome pro-life Democrats into this party,"
and do what with them Dean, ....eat them?
"You have to respect people's positions of conscience," said Dean. "I think Bob Casey's position is a position of conscience."
Oh, I see Mr. Dean, so those pro-lifers on the right are not worthy of 'respect', after all, we're all just a bunch of "White Christians", so we have no conscience. At least not one you can use to win an election. Oh, I get it. It's not a "real" conscience. It's "adopt a conscience", right!
You see why we say you Democrats have "no core". You're statement just proves what the American people already know, that you guys and gals will do anything to win, even betraying their own real beliefs.
UPDATE! I just had a Macsmind Moment on this! Dean just trapped his party and any efforts to bring a "pro-life" argument to Judge Robert's confirmation hearings!
Hey, Dean IS the gift that keeps on giving!
