  •  the only one playing a game is Ryan (14+ / 0-)

    his Frank Luntz rehearsed answer is to "soften" rape.

    Ryan has written laws to ban abortion in all cases including if a woman has been raped for his entire Congressional career.

    Ryan was asked a direct question because the interviewer also know Paul Ryan has always wanted a Federal ban on abortion even if a woman got pregnant from rape.

    Paul Ryan's answer to that question was to soften rape and say rape is one METHOD of conception ie., one method of getting pregnant.

    I find it sad and regrettable that you are having such a tough time understanding the obvious -- perhaps it is because you have no clue about Ryan's past legislation to Federally ban abortion even if a woman is raped.

    •  it isn't obvious. that is exactly the point. (0+ / 0-)

      you assume everyone is working from your set of facts or perception. they aren't.

      this is your interpretation:

      Paul Ryan's answer to that question was to soften rape and say rape is one METHOD of conception ie., one method of getting pregnant.
      so now he's softening rape. and you insist he is saying something he just has not said because, well heck, he's on record for saying it in the past and even passed laws...

      you don't back up your assertions with links and direct quotes ... you assume the reader knows all this.

      it makes me desperate. i know my editorial advice is unwelcome. but perhaps it may sink in at some point: your story is not complete. your facts are not in order.

      in fact, what is the point? to inflame? inform? just have a bunch of people reconfirm your POV? what is it you want to do with this?
