|Matt Hirsch, A spokesperson for Abbott shot back at Davis' policy position with a politically tone-deaf answer that proves the GOP is more about dividing and conquering than their own rhetoric of personal liberty and limited government.
"Unlike Senator Davis' positions on the issues, the Texas constitution is not subject to change on the latest whims of the day. Senator Davis' comment suggesting the Attorney General not enforce the Constitution mimics an Obama-style approach to government, and Texans deserve better," Hirsch said.
The chickens are finally coming home to roost for the GOP as they remain in damage control mode having to defend their policies of targeted discrimination, whether it be: insensitive comments about Hispanics, denying personal choice in healthcare decisions for women, or playing match maker by telling adults who they can and cannot marry. Suggesting that standing for every American's federally protected 14th Amendment right to "equal protection under the law" is whimsical, indicates that the campaign's talk of freedom and liberty only extends to the policy positions of extremely conservative Republicans and not Texans at large.
Wendy's words represent real leadership as several bans in other states are overturned for denying the LGBT community their 14th Amendment right of equal protection under the law. Let's hope Texas voters decide it's time to embrace equality for all and move into 21st century as leader instead of continuing to be dragged kicking and screaming.
