The modern GOP has traditionally favored compromised presidential candidates over candidates of principles much to the dismay, more importantly at the ‘expense’ of Christian socons.
George Bush the younger did come closest to being the greatest hope for pro-lifers, but he certainly had his disconcerting moments in his second term.
On one occasion, he deferred to a ‘telephone’ support call when the Capital was surrounded by at least a 100,000 pro-life witnesses over stepping outside the front door and addressing them in person.
Then there was his Sotomayor Supreme Court nomination which confirmed Bush didn’t care anymore about Presidential vocation.
His tax payer billion(s) dollar AIDS donation only proved he wanted to be remembered as a politically correct nice guy.
However, on the pro-life front George W. was a saint compared to Reagan in ‘actual pro-life contribution’ (read more important to lives of babies than adult activists).
Reagan had one Supreme Court Justice nomination and he squandered on one who was more liberal than remotely conservative. Betrayed Evangelicals threatened to pull the plug on the Gipper on more than one occasion.
There was one thing all these ‘Christian conservative Presidents did share however, and possibly a good explanation why they tried to do very little on the baby-killing industry.
They were all married to strongly opinionated pro-abortion women of the sisterhood. From Nancy to Laura, how could their true beliefs not affect their husband’s actions and lack thereof?
Now if there is an extra Wonder of the World that is hard to fathom, it is how a pro-life man could be married to a strong pro-abortion woman?
That in itself lays bare the sincerity of ambitious politicians and their wives. It would seem that their wives find it much harder to lie as easily and so they don’t comment on moral issues at all until hubby’s term is over.
Starting with this run-up to the 2016 Presidential election socons need to be more inquiring of ‘potential’ First Ladies to get a more honest and accurate picture of how the next Presidency will carry out its course.
If there is one thing a socon dislikes more than the enemy it is ’friendly enemies’ pretending, or claiming to be on side.
When you are the leading nation in the free world a lot of lives depend on your wisdom and serious consideration not your status, ambition and social life.
