Stupak Never Intended to See It through

It looks like this video was recorded last Fall before the House passed its version of healthcare reform. What it reveals is that Bart Stupak never intended to see his “pro-life” stand through to the end. I was mistaken about him before. His was never a principled pro-life position. (HT: The Corner)

    Denny,

    I think I heard on FOX that Stupak got some funds for Michigan on Friday. I have no proof and I do not want to jump to conclusions but that would be an interesting “coincidence.”

    Have you heard anything similar.

    Watching this video reminds me that Pilate made multiple attempts to persuade the religious leaders and people not to do what they were determined to do. He knew what they were doing was wrong and he seems to have genuinely wanted to do the right thing. So after his “efforts” failed, he washed his hands of the matter, saying that he did what he could to stop it.

    Washing your hands and caving to evil forces is called “political cowardice”.

    There’s a poll on MSNBC (not exactly a conservative place) where over 320,000 people have already voted. over 61% say they are “angry” about the legislation. Let’s hope it lasts till November.

    With almost 500,000 votes on MSNBC, those who are “angry” are at 66%. This poll is striking, though I don’t expect to see Brian Williams et al. talking about it tonight.

    Barry,

    The MSNBC results are interesting, but their methods of survey are hardly scientific. The results at the Gallup poll (www.gallup.com) are quite different. You may want to take a look at those.
