Debbie Wasserman Schultz is apparently determined to prove that she’s all the horrible things we think she is.
From HotAir’s Allahpundit:
The AP tried to corner Paul on abortion this afternoon by asking him to state definitively which exceptions to a ban he’d support. (In their defense, although firmly pro-life, he has been strategically cagey about his intentions on this subject if elected president.) Paul danced around the AP’s questions; the DNC then dutifully sent the story around to the media, hoping they’d take the baton and keep asking him about it. Sure enough, at his presser in New Hampshire this afternoon, a local reporter asked him about exceptions to abortions bans. Paul was ready for them this time.
Here’s video of Paul’s response (starts around the 8:00 mark):
Transcript via CNN:
“You go back and you ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s okay with killing a seven pound baby that is just not yet born yet. Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when she’s willing to protect life,” he said. “When you get an answer from Debbie, come back to me.”
Little Debbie didn’t like getting called out. So she fired back with this:
“Here’s an answer,” she said in an emailed statement. “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul.”
“Period,” eh, Debbie? Meaning what, exactly?
It sounds an awful lot like Debbie thinks there should be.
We look forward to hearing her answer.
