Wendy Davis Supporters Can’t Name One of Her Legislative Accomplishments

Wendy Davis Supporters Can’t Name One of Her Legislative Accomplishments

“To be perfectly honest with you, I can’t name one.”

Wendy Davis supporters are pretty excited about her campaign for governor of Texas but when pressed to name one of her legislative accomplishments, they’re surprisingly silent.

Yehuda Remer of Truth Revolt sees a pattern:

Just as Hillary Clinton supporters were unable to name a single accomplishment of the former Secretary of State, Wendy Davis’ supporters are in the same boat.

A new video by Texans for Greg Abbott features an interviewer asking supporters of Davis at the 2014 Texas Democratic Convention what her greatest legislative achievements were.

Here’s the video:

Liberals are already preparing themselves for Wendy Davis to lose.

Even if She Loses in Texas, Wendy Davis Is a Win for America

Wendy Davis’ run for governor has always been a long shot. The Texas state senator rose to national prominence just a year ago when she filibustered an omnibus abortion restriction bill clad in bright pink sneakers. The event cemented Davis’ place as a feminist icon across America, but back in Texas, the bill eventually passed anyway.

Now, for all the support Davis’ campaign has received from fellow Democrats in Washington and elsewhere—former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm called her “Joan of Arc, standing up there for women all across the country”—she’s still running for governor of a deeply red state. That means that the issue that made her a national star—abortion—is one she can’t really touch back at home.

That sure sounds different than the tune Davis supporters were singing a few months ago, doesn’t it?

Well, there is that one thing – wearing athletic shoes with nylons and not being called a fashion fool.

you miss the point: as a lieberal, she need only have good intentions, not actual achievements. her motives are pure, ergo she should be adulated by all.

Abortion any time, any place, for any reason, and FREE FREE FREE!!!!

“…study her legislations.” WTF? Looks like Texas Demoncrats of color aren’t too bright.

Q: Name one of Wendy Davis’ legislative accomplishments.

A: I – I – I can’t think of any.

Q: Correct!

This falls into the common fallacy that legislators’ performance can be measured by the number of new laws they made. Which is ridiculous. What are Ted Cruz’s great legislative achievements, or Rand Paul’s? Their achievements have been in preventing bad laws from being made.

Now Davis hasn’t actually prevented any laws either, any more than the R congressmen and senators prevented 0bamacare, but she did as much as any minority legislator could have done to delay the abortion restrictions. We here mocked her for it, because we supported those restrictions, but these Democrats agree with her in opposing them, so it makes sense for them to call her stand in opposition an achievement.

    at least she shipped her kids off with the hapless law school sugar daddy (soon to be divorced) when inconvenient, rather than going for the 18th or 19th trimester abortion.

    which is nice
