  •  Yes, he did answer the question for god's sake. (6+ / 0-)

    This is how politicians speak.  No politician EVER answers the question directly.  They instead couch their answer to the question they wanted asked, in a way that will hopefully provide them some deniability in the event the public takes affront.

    Do you really think there's a chance in hell Ryan would answer the question "No, I don't think a woman has a right to get an abortion if she's raped."???  And give the Obama campaign that soundbite to put in an ad????  No, he has his pat answer down that will not, in a soundbite, provide the actual answer.  There is virtually NO WAY to understand Ryan's response as saying Anything other than "if a woman is raped and gets pregnant, she should not have the right to get an abortion because the fetus is a life that began the second she became pregnant and that life is more important than her well being."  Period.
