I didn't watch the most recent GOP debate, which was on Sunday's edition of "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos (spelled it right on the first try, yeah baby!), but I read a recap of the debate, courtesy of The Washington Times. Anyone want to guess as to which debate topic got talked about first in the Times article?
If you said abortion, you get a virtual cookie. And if you guessed that this topic involved mostly talking points from Mitt Romney and Rudy Guiliani (because of their previous or current pro-abortion stances, depending on who you're talking to), you get some virtual chocolate chips thrown in with that cookie.
Why so many within the GOP continue to make abortion such a huge talking point, with much more pressing issues out there, I don't know.
Guiliani's statements about bad economic policies from the Democrats (that the kneejerk liberal reaction is to simply raise taxes) were on-point.
Mike Huckabee's analogy about health-care should focus more on prevention, and not just treatment, was interesting. Huckabee said "It's almost like having a boat that's taking on water, and rather than plugging the hole, we want to get a bigger bucket to take the water out of the boat,"
McCain's losing it...the man actually said "The respect and commitment to the rights of the unborn is something I've fought for, and it has a lot to do with national security. It says very much what kind of country we are," Read that again, folks. He actually tried to tie his stance against abortion to improving national security!
