Overturning the decision, he argued, “is a case we’re never going to win.” “Single white women run screaming from the Republican Party, largely because of our pro-life position,” Morris said. [PJ Media]
TRYING his best to become relevant again after his prediction debacle of 2012, Dick Morris decided to triangulate at CPAC. The audience was evidently small, but that didn’t stop Morris from offering the conservatives a little triangulation, telling those still listening to the political hustler to give up on Roe v. Wade.
It’s like telling a right wing fanatic to give up hating President Obama.
Suggesting adoption, birth control, parental notification, as well as abstinence, Morris threw the conservative kitchen sink in his poisonous pot, attempting to do for conservatives what he did for former President Bill Clinton. The biggest problem is that the American right hasn’t got anything close to Bill Clinton’s talent.
Using triangulation and taking the so-called wedge issue of abortion and turning it inside out, Morris thought he was helping solve a Republican problem, trying to make their challenge with women over self-determination ineffective for Democrats to use against them.
One problem is that abortion isn’t a wedge issue to modern women, any more than contraception availability in Obamacare is. Birth control and unintended pregnancy are both economic issues, as well as private issues between a woman and her doctor.
What Morris and too many other strategists miss is that it’s not about Roe v. Wade. It’s about Griswold, which revolves around a right to privacy.
And if you can believe this, Morris is reportedly headed to radio in Philadelphia, according to PJ Media. He’s actually going to be on the air. Come to think of it, his brand of crazy is made for talk radio.
