Democrat Wendy Davis Mocks Parapalegic Opponent For “Not Walking In My Shoes”

While the intent might not have been to make light of her opponent’s decades spent confined to a wheelchair, it certainly qualifies as a public gaffe that, had she been a Republican running for Texas governor, would be replayed on the Mainstream Media 24/7 over the next few days…

Wendy Davis is under fire following a Dallas Morning News report that found a number of factual discrepancies in the personal narrative she has made a centerpiece of her long-shot campaign for Texas governor…

Davis said that for Abbott, who has been a paraplegic for nearly three decades, to question her story proves that he “hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.”


That’s true Wendy, Greg Abbott certainly has not walked a mile in your shoes.  In fact, he is unable to walk anywhere in anyone’s shoes.

What’s with Democrats and their odd remarks regarding people in wheelchairs. Anyone remember when Joe Biden told a wheelchair bound Chuck Graham to “stand up”?  Love how he brushes it off with a “thank you pal.”  The always class, Joe Biden…

    • I remember the Princess’ attempt at self-denigrating humor about his bowling skills, and how he compared himself to Special Olympians. Such class, no?

      For those of us who are involved with Special Olympics in one way or another, it was an early indication that this man had insufficient social skills to be President. Sounds like wannabee Texas governor Davis has about the same level of social grace.

      But it’s pretty obvious, anyway: anyone whose primary desire for running for governor came from her zeal for killing babies in the womb is a shade short of emotional maturity and human compassion.

      • Seems like Davis’ Achilles’s heel is “not tightening up her language.” Hence, another foot-in-mouth comment about her arch rival. I bet her handlers are having a calf as the conservatives gnaw at her ankles over her faux pas. If she doesn’t step up her game and keep on her toes, she will end up flat-footed in this race. :)

    • Forget her – she’s going nowhere, except to places she doesn’t want to go……check this out! Another miracle — R candidate Joshua Black in Fla. said Obama should be executed for treason and the Estab. jumping all over him. Support him if you can:

      GOP candidate for the Florida House of Representatives is under fire from his own party and said he’s been visited by the Secret Service after he tweeted Monday that President Obama should be hanged for treason.

      Joshua Black, 31-year-old Republican candidate for Florida House District 68, quoted a tweeter, saying “I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high.” Black added, “agreed.”

      Chris Latvala, a Republican candidate for House District 67, shot back: “You aren’t seriously calling for the killing of Obama are you? I know you are crazy but good heavens. U R an embarrassment.”

      Black then replied, “Execution is the appropriate punishment for traitors. Don’t you have a race? Don’t you have a primary? #MindYourOwnBusiness?”

      Latvala responded, “I make it my business when so called GOP candidates become an embarrassment to my beloved party. You need to go take your medicine #TinFoilHat #Crazy.”

      Black later expounded on his comments – even going so far as quoting Jesus – in a Facebook posting, saying:

      “To everyone who was offended that I said that the POTUS should be hanged for treason. This is the man who droned al-Awlaki on ‘suspicion of terrorism’ – not proof – and later killed his 15-year-old son for nothing more than being his son. …

      “This would be exactly what the president has done to others, and, as Jesus said, ‘the measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again.’ I make no apologies for saying that the president is not above the People. If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he.

      “So, don’t stop at impeachment. Remove him. Try him before a jury (the very right that he arbitrarily denied to al-Awlaki and his 15-year-old son), and, upon his sure convictions, execute him. Thus has he done, thus it should be done to him.”

      Black said he doesn’t worry that the U.S. Secret Service will visit him, and the agents reportedly showed up on his doorstep Tuesday afternoon.

      He told WND, “As I have been explaining all day, too many times we stop pursuing justice against #criminalpoliticians after they leave office. Not this time. We need to send a firm and clear message that no government official is above the law. That’s the purpose of my statement.”

      GOP State chair Lenny Curry tweeted that Black’s comments were, “Deplorable. Despicable. Hateful.” He added, “He should go home and stay home.”

      Local GOP chairman Michael Guju blasted Black’s comments: “It is impossible to accept this statement. This is wholly unacceptable and unduly provocative.”

      Black resigned from the Pinellas County Republican Executive Committee at Guju’s request.

      According to WTSP-TV 10, Curry, Latvala and Florida Gov. Rick Scott have called for Black to drop out of the Florida House District 68 race.

      But Black said he won’t leave the Republican Party or the race: “I do not take orders from the governor. I’m staying in the race.”
