I’ve been out of the studio for the last couple days, speaking at some great “home events” sponsored by Indiana Right to Life in the northern part of the state. Granted, the sample of women I was surrounded by was obviously tainted, but I saw the face of compassion resonating on their faces when it came to protecting unborn children. When I got home Tuesday night and started doing some show prep for today, I happened across a video clip of Barbara Boxer from the end of last week.
While it’s a little dated, the contrast between what she said – and the way she said it – and what I saw on the faces of those women the last two days was profound. Here’s what she said:
Barbara Boxer made a strong statement about the 2012 election this week.
"I gotta say to the women out there, whether you're Republican or Democrat or Independent, if you're a self-respecting human being, please vote for President Obama, and to the men who care about women, do the same thing", she told Al Sharpton Wednesday night on MSNBC's Politics Nation.
She went on to say that this is “the issue of our time.”
I’m amazed by this, to be honest. And not because I am a huge Mitt Romney guy. I’m amazed by this because when you consider that Boxer’s proclamation has everything to do with one issue: abortion. The obsession and fascination these liberals have with killing children is so profound that they can’t progress beyond it. They can’t think beyond it. And they use the most bizarre language to defend it.

Consider how upside down you have to be to believe that “self-respecting” women (or men) must vote for someone because they believe it’s morally permissible to kill children in the wombs of their mothers. Never mind all the physical danger it puts women in, the emotional and psychological stress it sentences them to – it is the height of femininity to be allowed to kill children according to people like Boxer. What a vision.
After the last two days I feel confident in saying that the vast majority of American women do not see women like Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein as speaking for them. Let’s hope self-respecting human beings make that point clear in 2012.
