Where the hell is the mainstream media on this? And what a weak response. Andrew Sullivan takes Ryan to task on his non-answer to the “forcible rape” inquiry:
Notice how he didn’t answer the question – on a matter he regards as one of conscience. Ryan is proud of a pro-life record that split hairs on rape and yet in the same answersays we shouldn’t split hairs on rape. When challenged, he simply reiterates his new line. I’m inclined to believe in Ryan’s sincerity on ending all abortion, but if he cannot back up his own previous positions or even explain why he has changed them, he is not a breath of fresh air; he is a halitosis-ridden belch. When it comes to risking political capital over a matter of moral principle, Ryan morphed immediately into Romney, an opportunist.
