A Liberal Media

I have trouble sympathizing with Bill Clinton. ๐Ÿ˜›

WASHINGTON (AP) – Former President Clinton, defending his senator-wife’s statements on abortion, said Wednesday that Democrats are held to a double standard.

The comment came during remarks to Campus Progress, a left-leaning student group. He said young people in his party should speak directly to conservative voters.

He contended that Republicans have defined the abortion debate in a way that boxes in Democrats.

“So for example, if you’re a Democrat and you have sort of normal impulses, you’re a sellout, like when Hillary said abortion is a tragedy for virtually everybody who undergoes it, we ought to do all we can to reduce abortion,” Clinton said.

“All of a sudden,” he continued, the media began asking, “’Is she selling out? Is she abandoning her principles?’ But if John McCain, who’s pro-life, works with Hillary on global warming, he’s a man of principle moving to the middle.”

“It’s nuts,” the former president said.

If you lean right, you’ve known this for a long time – the liberal media applauds lefties, condemns righties. If you’re a righty moving to the center, yippee! But if you’re a lefty moving toward the center – even if you end up at the same position as the righty moving to the left – then boo, hiss.

I expected the media to hold its collective nose and pretend Hillary wasn’t trying to move to the right in preparation for a 2008 run for President, but it doesn’t appear the media is going to let her.

  1. He contended that Republicans have defined the abortion debate in a way that boxes in Democrats.

    I’m sorry, but it would seem that the Dems have ‘boxed’ themselves in by their own stance on the abortion issue.

    And as for being ‘held to a double standard’, the Democrat party is full of double standards such has affirmative action.

    I must agree that I can not find much sympathy for the man nore his party for the position they have put themselves into.

  2. True; I think the Democrats boxed themselves in with a “protect abortion at all costs” that offends the average American, too. I just think it’s funny that the liberal media won’t let Hillary pretend to be centrist, and Bill has the nerve to complain about it. ๐Ÿ˜›
