Compare: Stupak reduced to denouncing his own amendment as anti-life, and Lando Calrissian’s deal with Darth Vader..

  • Inspired! Stupak in one stroke turned himself from a political hero into the most pathetic figure in politics today.

  • I can’t believe that I actually had to spend hours of my time one day on this very blog having to defend myself from one of your co-bloggers for saying that, if I lived in Michigan, I’d be unlikely to vote for Stupak for Governor for economic reasons. Despite expressing my deep admiration for Stupak and his defense of the unborn, and noting that under different economic circumstances I’d vote for him in a heartbeat, my argument at the time was that he’s a union shill and that sort of politician is exactly what’s currently wrong with the horrible economies of Michigan and Ohio.

    Now, to justify my reasons, all I have to do is merely point to this video, which exposes him as not only the typical Democrat who will always cave to the leadership when it comes to abortion, but as being particularly duplicitous and shameless, as well.

    Amen. How the man could say those things is beyond belief. He took all that sh*t from his own party because he was trying to defend life, then when he sold out he said it was his party that defended life all along? WTF? Truth is condemning the man.

  • I mean, let’s spell out exactly what Stupak did here in this speech. Stupak (which I learned yesterday is “KAPUTS” spelled backward) engaged in THE smear that is ALWAYS used against pro-lifers: that we don’t care about the mothers and that we only care about the babies up until they are born.

    What kind of “pro-lifer” engages in that sort of rhetoric? Doesn’t he know how hurtful it is for the pro-lifers who stood with him in favor of the Stupak Amendment to hear THOSE WORDS from someone who is allegedly one of our own? If he’s spent any REAL time in the pro-life movement, he MUST know the power and the sting of the words he used, so I can only guess that it was a calculated move to do maximum damage to the pro-life cause and to completely dispirit pro-lifers themselves.

    Think about this: How does Bart Stupak look Chris Smith in the eye the next day after saying what he said on the House floor?

    That conversation was conducted based on the (widely shared) premise that Stupak was risking his career to defend the unborn. That premise turned out to be false; he was obviously dishonest in trashing those who supported the amendment he drafted, and in claiming that the Executive order meant anything. I still think that if such a Democratic politician existed, they should receive special consideration from pro-lifers, given that developing a healthy pro-life faction in the Democratic party would be an enormous pro-life victory. You may disagree, but I don’t see why after we know Stupak is dishonest, it affects that argument one way or the other.

  • But that’s the point. The ONLY reason it was even an issue was because we THOUGHT this guy was solid on the pro-life front.

    Otherwise, I wouldn’t have felt the need to go into so much detail explaining myself.
