Flip-flopping, Republican style

May 24, 2005 09:00 AM

It is always nice to see pro-life leaders come out of the woodwork to expose the real hypocrisy that is so prevalent among Republicans. The recent filibuster hoax is one such event. The press called it a "deal reached to avert a showdown," but I call it the greatest betrayal of principle in history. The threat of filibuster is not about anything other than abortion! And the fact that some Republican senators would join with the likes of Democratic Sen. Harry Reid says a whole lot about real courage versus politics as usual. Can't anyone recall that Sen. Teddy Kennedy once defended the right to filibuster? Or is it a right in a U.S. Senate that avoids, evades and flat out ignores the fate of more than four thousand American preborn citizens daily?
