Caught living a life in fantasy land, aspiring Democrat candidate for Governor of Texas responded to a sympathetic media:
“I am proud of where I came from and I am proud of what I’ve been able to achieve through hard work and perseverance. And I guarantee you that anyone who tries to say otherwise hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.”
Davis tried to foist blame for the now-infamous Dallas News story that totally blew to smithereens the fictional account of her life on GOP nominee Greg Abbott, who hasn’t walked in anyone’s shoes of late.
If that’s not insensitive enough, along come some Davis supporters to pile on:
We’re not surprised Republicans have attempted to undermine Wendy Davis’ campaign by calling her past into question – we have seen similar attacks launched against women candidates before. The recent personal attacks on Wendy Davis and her family are blatant attempts to thwart her campaign and undermine her success…Greg Abbott is running scared and for good reason. Senator Davis’ personal story is a compelling narrative of perseverance and hard work that millions of Texans have responded to. It is appalling that Republicans would attack the details of that story rather than focus on the issues affecting Texas families.
Such a compassionate bunch. Her adoring media has already encased Davis in bubble-wrap to shield her from further ridicule, so don’t expect anyone to notice such insensitivities.
