Contradicting Articles

1)Letter to the Editor in the WaPo:Davis is Not a Moderate 2)In an article in the Boston Globe, Davis is quoted as saying ''you can be prolife and no one feels that's a threat to someone having to make a difficult decision" if abortion is illegal, he said. Davis goes on to tell how appointing Alito the court could have a backlash among suburban voters. -This article also appears in a British paper. UPDATE:The 6th District Virginia Young Democrats have their own insight into the matter.

Once again, the mainstream media takes a quote that is an impartial political analysis and uses it to advance their own purposes. Davis, known as someone who likes to "strategerize," was simply saying that overturning Roe v. Wade would put suburban Republicans in a tough spot. The Washington Post headline the next day was something like, "Davis warns of GOP backlash if Roe is overturned." This headline implies that he is warning Republicans to back away from their principles when in fact, he was just making the obvious point that turning abortion into a political rather than constitutional issue brings the issue to the forefront. Most polling suggests that suburban voters are pro-choice. The mainstream press is just giddy at the idea of "moderates" and "conservatives" fighting each other, hoping that in so doing, we will lose. It is divide and conquer, and they are doing everything they can to advance the perception that there really is a huge divide in the party. Maybe there is (see Hutch vs. Rodakanakis etc). Nevertheless, I am sure the liberal press read this and other blogs and just have a field day with all of our bickering. We have got to come together people or we are going to get our butts kicked!
