And what of Obama's partial birth abortion stance? Why doesn't that position, which is far more extreme than Murdock's, cost Democrats the election? While you wring your hands about a perfectly defensible position to have, Democrats boldly move on without a care for their indefensible positions. If the bed wetters would stop reacting out of fear and actually make a strong defense for what is not a political loser of a position, we wouldn't have this problem.
It would be nice to see some true Republicanism being espoused. The kind that holds in matters that are not and should not be the purview of federal government, it should be decided by the people of each state.
