    2 hrs ago | The Daily Caller

    It isn't often that The Washington Post describes a defender of abortion as having the "worst week in Washington." But that is what Post columnist Chris Cillizza did in picking Rep. Renee Ellmers for the honor, thanks to her strange timing in opposing a popular late-term abortion limit while hundreds of thousands of pro-life marchers were in town last week.

    6 hrs ago | The Charlotte Observer

    WASHINGTON Perhaps the best thing that can be said now about the abortion bill revolt last week led by Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., is that she was trying to look at the big picture for her party as it tries to polish its image and attract new voters. But her efforts have her earned a dubious honor at best, the “Worst Week in Washington” award from The Washington Post Sunday Outlook section.

  6. Looking BackRead the original story

    10 hrs ago | Fetch Your News

    I hate looking back except to look for pitiful examples of lost opportunities. But, this question hangs in the air like the essence of methane: Has the GOP leadership still not gotten the message? Are they incapable of making a decision that the base sent them there to make? Did the leadership not see the vast pro-life marches, rally's and demonstrations all around this country on the occasion of the forty second anniversary of the still unconstitutional Roe vs. Wade? WTF, over? To pull the vote on not allowing infanticide after twenty weeks, a pain test proving the infant is viable, is to once again slap their social base in the face and, in effect, tell us they know best.
