    In the one I watched, Northam made no mention whatsoever of anything remotely close to infanticide. He said that the doctor and parents would discuss options. As he was clearly talking about an infant with a life threatening condition, I logically assumed he meant they discuss possible treatments or possibly palliative care.

    Maybe his comments would have been better received by many if he hadn’t shifted from earnest, yet compassionate, sounding politician to clinically speaking physician. I actually appreciated the directness of his comments.

    Same as I appreciate using the correct terminology “terminating a pregnancy” or “aborting a fetus” over the more inflammatory, and incorrect “killing a baby”.
    I wished he had clarified what "options" he was talking about. Further, I think he should have stayed in clinical mode and clarified exactly what he meant. It's not hard. You assumed something just about everyone can understand, but your assumption is just that. Why couldn't Northam have said that, given the reaction his interview got?
    Instead, Northam went from doctor to bought and paid for PP shill and parroted their talking points instead of just answering the damn question, "Are you talking about killing a baby or withholding care with the intention of the baby dying, after it's been born?"

    Northam isn't dumb. He knows this was the crux of the head explosions. Why not just answer. Your answer was perfect and I assume you're not a doctor?

    At any rate, now Northam is pretending this isn't even an issue and is busy explaining spit shining shoes to a black woman.

    I mean, seriously.

    Thanks for the thoughtful discussion.

    Actually that IS one of Northam's problems apparently. He is a politician now. I am not sure he does himself any good ever speaking publicly as if he were a clinician speaking to patients. He can do that if he ever goes back to private practice as a doctor. Again it just speaks to how oblivious this guy is. How he has not been forced to figure out that he can not straddle the line between clinician and politician before now is beyond me.

    And the House Dems have 2 Jew-hating Muslims (one with a Committee seat) and a pedo (that Obama was more then happy to campaign for). Then we have the Minnesota AG (Keith Ellison) who beats women. Then we have "Pay To Play"/tax dodger Prickster, Gov of Illinois.

    So in other words, you have no problem with the crumbs that your party has put into power?

    His chief problem appears to be finding his mouth with a big spoon.

    Right.

    Making **** up is a right-wing nut's pastime.

    I suspect because what I bolded above is about as hyperbolic as it gets. There is nothing that has been reported that gets anywhere near that sort of hyperbole.
