Will Republicans Fumble Their Planned Parenthood Victory?

The release of yet another video exposing Planned Parenthood’s macabre culture of callous disregard for the bodies of aborted fetuses and the marketplace for their dismembered body parts represents another blow to the organization’s status as privileged recipient of taxpayer funds. Planned Parenthood is panicking, acting erratically, employing crisis communications professionals, and concocting flimsy exculpatory narratives aimed at impugning the motives of their critics. That’s a far cry from just three years ago, when Planned Parenthood’s celebrity president, Cecile Richards, addressed the Democratic Party’s presidential nominating convention in prime time. The organization’s erstwhile Democratic allies are getting squeamish. The way is clear for the GOP to deliver the coup de grâce; momentum is on their side. Only Republicans can rob their party of a long-sought political victory. But as much as pro-life activists might hope to see the GOP act hastily at this moment, such injudiciousness would be self-defeating.

    What the Repubicans will do will be to work out a way that they can fail to de-fund Prenatal Parts while making it look like they tried. It’s their standard MO.

    Bitch McConnell and Crying John are just awaiting their marching orders from the White House on how to make sure that the motion doesn’t pass. Obama can always use a veto but he’s no dummy and will use his 2 lapdogs to derail this and then he won’t have vetoing of this hanging around for Republican ammunition.

    What the USA needs is a actual 2nd Party; The Gov’t Party a.k.a. the Progressive Party dominates all. Doesn’t anybody remember Mississippi 2014? The ‘Republicans’ bused in black democrat voters to aid an incumbent RINO vs. a Tea Party backed Chris McDaniel. It’s the Establishment vs. everybody else –get it? Quit falling for R vs D game.
