Here is the video from Gov. Palin’s interview with Sean Hannity. The final portion of that interview will air on the program this evening.
Here is the ad mentioned in the previous post. I watched the H&C interview on the internet this morning, and quite frankly, it stuns that anyone could talk to a woman like Ms. Jessen and not support a Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Where do we draw the line? When does a human get human rights? Some questions that her story should make everyone think about.
I am not a Hannity and Colmes fan. I don’t like any of the “talking heads” shows that yell at each other, and pit “right” and “left” against one another. With that said, check out a clip from last night’s show (Monday): it’s a brief visit with Gianna Jessen. I read Gianna’s story as a young teenager, and between it and the Atonement Child, I have never thought about different position on abortion: there isn’t another one to be had. Gianna is an amazing young woman and a huge part of the pro-life movement. How can anyone look at her, and still believe that abortion is killing tissue and that knowing her medical history (she has cerebral palsy–as a result of her botched abortion), that abortion isn’t painful or harmful. She’s right: “if abortion is about ‘women’s rights’ … what were mine?” Please watch.
Oh, and I just found this, in looking for a link to the TV ad that prompted Gianna’s interview. The news media can’t even get her story right, because getting it right means that they have to face the truth. Why can’t people wake up to the reality of what abortion really is? I know we’re facing serious problems with the economy, with health care, with our tax system, with foreign policy, with spending, but what about the least of these? Those who can’t even protect themselves? Gianna’s story shouldn’t sit easy with anyone on the fence on abortion. Please, at least look into her story, before you write it all off as another part of the crazy right-wingers.
This is must-see-TV!
I happened to catch H&C this evening by chance. I have almost stopped watching any televised news because I have been so disgusted with all the major news outlets of late.
They announced that Governor Huckabee would be on the show so I decided to listen to what Huckabee had to say this evening.
Here is what I noticed:
1. Why is it that many of the big name conservatives seem more content to attack Huckabee for things from many years ago that to talk about the issues of today? He has already answered the questions multiple times. It would be nice if they would give Huckabee more time to talk about his vision for America. The people of America want to get to know Huckabee, but a lot of conservative personalities are content to talk only about the few quibbles they have with his record. He has been criticized for lack of foreign policy experience, why not ask about that? He has released a nine point immigration plan, why not ask about that?
2. So far, and this may change, more liberals have given him the chance to actually talk about his policies. Huckabee has a lot to offer America but a lot of the message gets drowned out by people in his own party trying to kill his campaign.
3. Newt Gingrich said that Huckabee needs to come up with short sound bites to answer the criticisms that continue to pop up. I agree. Perhaps if he gives the same answer, the exact same way, over and over, it will start to sink in.
Huckabee is really facing a make or break portion of his campaign. If he can overcome the barrage of attacks that have been leveled at him, he has a good shot at the nomination. He will have to do that by going on the offensive by answering the criticisms quickly and forcefully, and by injecting comments about his policies and vision for American into otherwise negative interviews. I believe that people want to hear what the governor has to say, this is why he has done so well in debates. His message is resonating with the people and it seems that some in the media are afraid of its continued spread.
Hopefully, as he continues to answers the latest criticisms, Huckabee will be able to push his message through the smoke screen the media is trying to set up around him. If he can do that, I believe is momentum in the polls will continue and we may have a new national front runner on our hands within the next few weeks.
