Reporters love to cross-examine Republicans about social issues and their supposedly “extreme” positions. Of course, they never challenge Democrats on the positions that really are extreme–e.g., advocating the sale of aborted babies’ body parts. Republicans need to push back against these transparent attempts not only to make Republicans look bad, but equally important, to change the subject away from $18 trillion in debt, a collapsing foreign policy, runaway illegal immigration, and so on.
Yesterday on CNN, Carly Fiorina put on a clinic. Republican candidates, this is what you should do when a reporter tries to paint you into a corner on a social issue–in this case, abortion. Get out the popcorn, and enjoy:
Via Townhall and InstaPundit. Like pretty much everyone else, I have been impressed by Fiorina. If she is running for V-P, she is doing a heck of a good job. And who knows, with the crowded GOP field, she may wind up as a serious contender for the presidential nomination.
