Barbara Don’t Call Me Ma’am Boxer is pushing her political politeness to a voting bloc she simply can’t ignore: Catholic Latinos.
Via The Hill:
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) defended her socially liberal views on Spanish-language television Sunday, saying that she was polling well in the socially conservative Latino community because her stance in favor of abortion rights is "100 percent respectful."
On Univision’s "Al Punto," Boxer was asked a National Organization for Marriage ad geared toward the Hispanic community, saying that her abortion and gay marriage positions don’t coincide with Latino values.
"I am a 100 percent respectful of people’s views," she said. "I don’t think the government should tell people what to do."
"…When you are pro-choice you respect all the choices, you respect people,"
I’m not sure which is worse: That Boxer is suggesting that she would represent a pro-life voting bloc by being polite and "respectful." Or that a pro-life voting blog would actually vote for such a pro-abortion candidate.
