What Charles left outPosted: April 8, 2015
Being the loyal smear merchant for the progressive cause, Charles goes on the attack on Rand Paul. He goes after Paul’s answers on abortion.
Funny, Charles leaves out what Rand Paul threw back at the press on the abortion question.
Rand Paul says he doesn’t want to be grilled about abortion until Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz answers similarly tough questions.
He said reporters should go to Wasserman Schultz with similar questions — and then ask him again.
“You go back and you ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby that is just not yet born yet. Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when she’s willing to protect life,” he said. “When you get an answer from Debbie, come back to me.”
Wasserman Schultz quickly responded, saying Paul should explain whether he believes abortion should ever be legal.
“Here’s an answer,” she said in an emailed statement. “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul.”
Then, she posed some questions of her own, saying: “We know you want to allow government officials like yourself to make this decision for women — but do you stand by your opposition to any exceptions, even when it comes to rape, incest, or life of the mother? Or do we just have different definitions of ‘personal liberty’? And I’d appreciate it if you could respond without ‘shushing’ me.”
But Paul wasn’t fazed — or impressed — by Wasserman Schultz’s answer. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, the senator said it seemed to him like she wasn’t opposed to late-term abortions.
“Sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby,” he said.
Watch at the 8 minute mark.
It is clear, Charles supports killing babies like Debbie Waserman Schultz.
Update: Charles did react to Rand Paul’s answer on abortion.
