McCain Democrats

August 26, 2008

There’s been lots of talk that Biden will help Obama attract blue-collar Catholic voters. But these blue-collar Catholics are the classic Reagan Democrats, middle-of-the-road folks who historically voted Democrat but who have been pushed out of the party by its ridiculous stance on issues like abortion. According to the Democrats’ 2008 Platform, “The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”

 

Biden’s selection, it seems to me, simply highlights the Democratic Party’s extremist position on this issue. Denver’s Archbishop Charles Chaput said that Biden should avoid taking Communionbecause of his stance on abortion. And Biden is not alone. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was corrected by Washington Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl on the Church’s teaching concerning when life begins.

McCain needs to go after these voters.
