Voted YES on banning federal health coverage that includes abortion. (May 2011)
Opposes prohibiting human embryonic stem cell research. (Aug 2010)
Opposes federal abortion funding. (Aug 2010)
I consider myself pro-choice. (Nov 2010)
I don’t know how he considers himself to be pro choice maybe he has also re committed himself as a virgin based on the strength of his belief? I said Bob was trying to run to the left on abortion I did not say he actually was. I am not sure just who he thinks he is fooling but when you try and please everyone you end up pleasing no one.
Opposes same-sex marriage. (Nov 2010)
Dold had previously supported civil unions for gay couples but not gay marriage. But, just days before Illinois’ legislature passed a bill to legalize gay marriage in the state, he said he supported it so long as there were strong protections for religious organizations.
I’m not sure what to believe anymore. A Republican in Illinois birthplace of Ronald Reagan, home of Rumsfeld, Phil Crane ( anti tax before Newt before it was cool) trying to run to the left on abortion and gay marriage but the GOP is winning the election the pollsters say! Ok then why are they compromising like this.
Whats next Rep Paul Ryan of Wisconsin will talk about how we need to help the needy?
They need to throw out Rep. Paul Ryan and elect Rob Zerban, a Kenosha County supervisor and small-business owner, who proudly notes near the top of his biography that he pays his employees family-sustaining wages with benefits including quality health care.
The mainstream news media says almost nothing about this, but Ryan’s a two-timer, big time. He talks soothingly of repairing the social safety net and helping the needy, but that’s only because his polling suggests that’s a smart thing to say.
My Bold I don’t care if he is lying I know he is but the important thing is Paul Ryan is lying because he has to I smell fear, I smell blind Panic.
Whats next the GOP candidate for Governor of Illinois Bruce Rauner will back a raise in the minimum wage after talking about wanting to get rid of the minimum wage?
In Illinois, gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner has been all over the map on the issue (that’s a map stretching from “eliminate or reduce the minimum wage” to “maybe possibly raise it by I’m-not-saying-how-much and only with a ton of conditions attached”)
The GOP just fought huge Primary war with its Tea Bag wing and for the most part won Rep Eric Cantor was their only loss. Now then does anyone think Tea Baggers, anti Abortion Voters and the we can’t help the poor because they breed caucus of which Paul was a leader can vote GOP without losing their lunch on election day?
Does anyone think that moderate voters after hearing these and other GOP candidates say the exact opposite on these and other issues for years are going to be fooled?
But still the pollsters claim the GOP will win big come election day. Sadly at best the GOP’s changes in position will likely be used to explain how the GOP stole the election. Bush stole Florida the first time he ran, Bush stole Ohio the second time he ran, Karl Rove refused to concede Ohio but some Hackers stopped him from stealing Ohio. Obama has never investigated election fraud so how can we trust election results if we lose?
The first step toward revolution is to get people to care about voting, about wanting to change things. The next step is for the other side to stop change from happening. This keeps on going on until we decide we have no choice the system does not work the system has no legitimacy, no consent of the governed, the Mandate of Heaven has Passed.
