Wendy Davis will not back off outing Greg Abbott's hypocrisy
Wendy Davis refuses to let the false righteous indignation of the traditional MSM about her searing Greg Abbott wheelchair ad deter her from telling the truth about his hypocrisy. Wendy Davis drives the narrative unapologetically. She does not allow the sudden conscience of pundits and talking heads cause a change in direction of her messaging.
It is ironic how women candidates are judge differently than men. Chuck Todd calls Alison Lundergan Grimes' refusal to voice who she voted for a disqualifying action. Where the was comparative statemen for Mitch McConnell claiming Kentucky would keep Kinect even though he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
The Houston Chronicle criticized the Wendy Davis ad with a throated attack.
With Wendy Davis trailing so close to Election Day, it should be no surprise that her campaign tried for a low blow. The now infamous 30-second spot, titled "Justice," was supposed to point out the hypocrisy of Attorney General Greg Abbott fighting against victims in courts after he himself collected a multi-million dollar tort settlement. The ad missed the mark, coming off more like a glib attack on Abbott for using a wheelchair.
There are serious questions about Abbott's role as attorney general, particularly when fighting Texas' compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is a nuanced subject, and this hamfisted tactic only distracts from the point.
Where was the Houston Chronicle when the barrage of lies and misogynistic attacks on Wendy Davis occurred? Remember abortion Barbie? Remember the FBI investigation that really wasn't?
Wendy Davis' ad is factual. Using the wheelchair for effect was the right thing to do giving Greg Abbott's legal treatment of the disable. He is a big boy that has hurt many disabled Texans with the policies he supports.
Wendy Davis used the above MSNBC segment that attempted to malign her ad as a free platform. She enumerated Greg Abbott’s hypocrisy as well as his contempt for Texans. She illustrated his disregard for their needs in favor of the wants of the few well-connected. Good job Wendy.
