I’ve said the Democrat Party of Virginia should finally own up to the notion that “DPV” is more accurately rendered as the “Deceiver Party of Virginia.” They’ve been at it for years, deliberately misrepresenting the positions of their Republican opponents, assuring we Virginians that they’ll “never support” legislation that would “take away health care that you’ve got right now,” and just outright lying about some ridiculous effort to ban birth control or some such. When I wrote that article in 2013 they were saying that Delegate Barbara Comstock was trying to ban birth control, for instance, a claim that I showed was patently false. Well, if you’ve been watching any TV for longer than 15 minutes in the northern Virginia 10th Congressional District, then you know they’re making that same ludicrous claim today.
UPDATE: And now… the Denver Post endorses Gardner, and is brutal in its assessment of Udall:
“Rather than run on his record, Udall’s campaign has devoted a shocking amount of energy and money trying to convince voters that Gardner seeks to outlaw birth control despite the congressman’s call for over-the-counter sales of contraceptives. Udall is trying to frighten voters rather than inspire them with a hopeful vision. His obnoxious one-issue campaign is an insult to those he seeks to convince.”
Emphasis mine. And just so you know, read up on Comstock’s stance here, from CBS 6 in Richmond:
Comstock, in her third term representing parts of Loudon and Fairfax counties in Virginia’s House of Delegates, takes conservative stands on many issues, from business regulations to gun control. She opposes abortion rights, but advocates making birth-control pills easier to obtain.
She absolutely does not, as the Dem ad claims, wish to outlaw birth control. They know this and still they make the claim to you. There’s a word for that: lie. And if they’re lying to you about something this easy to confirm, what are they lying to you about that they know they can hide from you?
What’s particularly illuminating, here, is that the Dems are trying the same “scare-all-the-ladies” approach right across the board and they are expecting that it will work. I have to say, ladies, I don’t see that the Democrats think very highly of your intelligence and, clearly, they think sex is pretty much all that concerns you.
Barbara Comstock and Ed Gillespie hold you in higher regard. Barbara’s record on pushing for economic development for everyone and on halting human trafficking, which primarily affects women and children, is exemplary. Ed Gillespie thinks you’re concerned with much more than birth control when it comes to health care and you’re also interested in better job opportunities, more affordable energy, and in having representation that puts Virginians’ interests – your interests – ahead of whatever agenda some national party wants to push.
Don’t be fooled. Get the facts. When you do, I’m sure you’ll see the wisdom in voting for Barbara Comstock for Congress and Ed Gillespie for Senate.
