This posting is not about Wendy Davis. It is not about her views. This is about a man who has pattern of being disrespectful to women:
We are a big nation with different viewpoints. We won’t always agree…but a strong debate is helpful when we disagree. Sometimes if you are smart in your debate, you persuade someone who otherwise had disagreed with you.
And then there are the creeps who take cheap shots because they are too ignorant and small to engage in an important discussion. The best they can do is make themselves look really bad. No one should pay any attention to them – they are not persuasive, they are noise, and in some instances boorish and obnoxious. I suspect this guy feels that he makes himself relevant or even important if he says or tweets like this. I just roll my eyes and wonder what is going on in his head!

I see he tweets about his daughter. When I read the above tweet I thought, I wonder how proud his daughter would be of him if she knew that he tweeted insults about women. It is one thing to disagree ..but he tweets insults. And here are more of his tweets about a woman, Wendy Davis:
PS – I read someplace that he was a CNN contributor and is a Fox News contributor. He has never been on TV with me. His name sounded familiar and I checked back on GretaWire and I blogged about him once before May 30, 2013. CLICK HERE

One other thing…. don’t expect me to police everything that is said by everybody, but I will from time to time speak up (not always…I’m busy doing a lot of other things).
