It is not the purpose of this blog to side blindly with political parties. Whenever a party espouses legislation that promotes life, then that party ought to be supported. However, when candidates for office betray certain genocidal proclivities, especially in the run-up to the primaries, then it is incumbent upon people of good will to do all that they can to find a more humane candidate.
This today from Yahoo News:
COLUMBIA, S.C. – When things looked their darkest for Gov. Mark Sanford — when he was in danger of being impeached for running off to Argentina to see his mistress — his best insurance policy may well have been South Carolina’s lieutenant governor, Andre Bauer.
Lawmakers knew if they removed Sanford, they would end up with Bauer, a fiercely ambitious Republican with a reputation for reckless and immature behavior.
Now Bauer has folks shaking their heads again, after he likened government assistance to the poor to feeding stray animals.
At a town hall meeting Thursday, Bauer, who is running for governor in his own right now that Sanford is term-limited, said: “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed! You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that.”
This guy needs to be repudiated by the RNC the way David Duke was.
