Wendy Davis — Oops: Lies and the Feminist That Tells Them

Click here to Watch Wendy Davis Sing – I’m a Barbie Girl In a Bullcrap World!

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” -Winston Churchill

When I wrote about Wendy Davis in June, I knew very little about her back story.  I’m not from Texas.  But if I were, I wouldn’t have voted for her.  Her willingness to defend the availability of abortions after 20 weeks was really all I could stomach at the time.  I should have known it wasn’t the last we’d see of Ms. Davis.  What can I say?  Where I come from, having a vagina and wearing pink running shoes doesn’t qualify you for political office. 

The entire country is familiar with her lies by now.  There is something that irks me more than the lies.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s bad enough to pretend to be a single mother when you weren’t.  It’s ridiculous to tell the world you clawed your way out of poverty and destitution all by your little blonde self when you didn’t. 

No, it’s this tweet that gets me:  “I share my story of being a single mother, of fighting for a chance at a better life not because my story is unique, but because it is not.” 

Oh, but Wendy, it IS unique.  You see, when you married Jeff Davis, you turned in your single mother card.  When you ditched your daughters, ages two and eight, for Harvard, you turned in your mom card.  Ms. Davis, when you moved 1,800 miles away for three years, you weren’t being a mom.  And you weren’t “fighting for a better life” because you were already married to a successful attorney.  One that publically stated he was making six figures at the time he was footing your college and law school bills. 

Let’s face it; “struggling single mom” buys a hell of a lot more votes than “spoiled princess that got to take a break from the demands of motherhood to chase her own personal dreams.”  I suppose it doesn’t fit the liberal feminist narrative to admit that she wasn’t exactly single, wasn’t exactly poor, and wasn’t exactly present in her children’s lives for a good three years.  It’s not politically expedient to admit behind your law degree stood a man with a checkbook.  You are the very thing feminists despise.  Your husband’s money and connections gave you a boost not afforded most single mothers.  You didn’t make it on your own.  You made it because you had a supportive partner in your spouse.  

For his part, Jeff Davis sounds like a standup guy.  After making the final Harvard payment, they divorced and Jeff took full custody of their daughter.   He is quoted as saying, “She did the right thing.  She said, ‘I think you’re right; you’ll make a good, nurturing father. While I’ve been a good mother, it’s not a good time for me right now.’ “  He refuses to throw Ms. Davis under the bus, defending her choices and even saying she’d make a great governor.   I applaud him for that.  He is, after all, the father of one of her children. 

I’m not, however.  And I’m sure I can learn how to steer a bus.

A good mother doesn’t decide “it’s not a good time for me right now.”  A good mother doesn’t choose political and professional ambition over her children.  

I know that Wendy Davis would like to blame the Wayne Slater piece in the Dallas Morning News on the Abbott campaign.  She’s already labeled the aftermath an “attack.”  Davis wants to chalk it up as “playing politics.” Really, princess?  You lied about your past to make yourself more appealing to voters.  You are the Jedi Master of political BS.

That she refuses to own up to her lies tells me she isn’t ready to lead the state of Texas or anything else.    And now that you know the truth, do you really want her to?

    Ouch! Pauline you put it straight and I like it.

  • John Kirkwood

    Boom! Great freaking column. Would love to see you debate this drip!

    Every time I return to this Wendy Davis story I get disgusted. We ALL know that politicians lie; you can’t be a politician and not have to lie at some time. But this is simply egregious lying on her part. I will never understand how these people live with themselves, or why people vote for them. Just like Elizabeth Warren. And nothing will be done about it.

    When the LIVs vote these people into office just because of the D or R after their names, it affects all of us. Doesn’t anyone care about character any more, or is it all just about ‘my side’ winning?

  • Carrie54

    But then again, that is exactly what feminists want, for women to ditch raising their kids for a career life

  • c.a.greene

    sad really that this lying cow would use her children to get more votes! she abandoned them to follow her own dreams, couldn’t be more self centered than that! motherhood is a sacrifice, the children should always come first in everything! the very second she became pregnant her wants and needs should have taken a backseat until after the kids were grown. selfish bitch. such a disgrace

  • Shelley Bishop

    Please be careful when making derogatory remarks about the choices mothers make. While I agree with your assessment of Ms. Davis, I am the blond women who chose law school when I had young children (5 months and 3). I did NOT turn in my mom card. I took my children with me to Austin to attend law school at the University of Texas while my then husband finished his masters degree at the Air Force Institute of Technology in Dayton, Ohio. I had my daughters with me (and was nursing the youngest) for my entire first semester of law school. One month into my second semester, after weaning my baby, my husband took the kids so that I could focus on a paper I had to write and I traveled back and forth every other weekend for a long weekend to see my kids. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But I knew I needed an education to take care of my children in the event this marriage with south. I made many, many sacrifices so that I could both attend law school AND be an active, loving mother. My GPA suffered and I didn’t qualify for any big money jobs, so I opened my own firm. And, because that marriage broke up 2 years after law school, and because I had to obtain loans to attend law school since my husband wasn’t rich, and because I wanted my daughters to have a good life growing up so I didn’t work outlandish hours and I did take time off to go on field trips and coach their cheerleading team, I am still paying on law school loans 18 years after graduating (and I owe more now than when I graduated because of interest). I’m a proud 53 year old mother to two beautiful daughters one of whom is working on a masters degree in wild animal biology in London, England; and the other is completing an bachelor degree in architecture at C.U. Boulder. They are fabulous young women who learned from my example. My son from that first marriage is married with children. I think I was a pretty darned good mom – card or not.

      Shelley, it looks like you kept the MOM card….You did what was needed and still got an education and saw your children….this woman left her children. Big difference, in my eyes!!!

      I don’t believe Pauline was lumping all mothers into one category. You sound like a GREAT mom, I don’t think you were included in her post. She was referring to a low life who abandoned her husband, most importantly her children, I’m sure she had this figured out when she went to Harvard. She is a piece…….

    • tom cook

      Big deal Ms. Whiny. You don’t have to spend your life in a wheelchair.

    • Ralph

      This sounds good…. but what about working on a marriage that could have survived the fear of being alone with no support? That would really be a good trend setter for others to witness, never mind for your children’s true best interest. Too many are sacrificing marriage (to be upheld by all) for the comforts of the supposed ‘American dream’ and this filters down to the degradation people have of marriage today. God’s plan always pays off in more ways than money can supply.

    • Memphis Viking

      Clearly, your story is different from Wendy Davis’, whom the writer was talking about. She abandoned her kids and then claimed to be a struggling single mom for political points.

    • chamuiel

      You now owe more than you graduated?

      shoukln;’t you have thought of that before you chose law School/

  • Dave Wukusick

    It was good for Hillary…hahaha….what a bitch!!!

  • texas57

    Great article Pauline. I’ve never driven a bus, but come on down and we’ll teach ya, lot of wide open space. To put everyone to rest, she will not be governor of Texas this time. Bunch of blue staters moving in, but Greg Abbott has this one.

  • tom cook

    Is it a paradox or what? Sluts like this airhead and Rush’s slut with her need for huge amounts of condoms, Sandra the appropriately named Fluke (a parasitic worm) who were allowed to attend so-called elite law schools which could not be so if they admit this kind of white trailer trash worthy of Bill Clinton.

  • dandeman

    I think it;s time to let the world know that because you have a degree from Harvard, does not automatically make you qualified for politics. Radical professors have taken over Harvard and in most cases, higher education instructors do well just to speak English – let alone teach the constitution background of the US.

    Having a simple mindset on these types of issue I would think the question that needs to be asked of Ms. Davis is: “Please tell us – on a personal level-why this issue is so important to you?” and “How does making the changes you suggest – create a better life for you?”

    Ms Davis – can we correlate your decision to abort your marriage after the guy pays for your education to aborting your baby after you decide that “your” life is more important and you’re not ready for any commitments at this time? So tell me again how you plan to abort Texas because it does not fit your lifestyle at this time.

    Bottom line of her REAL story: her second husband comes off more noble and heroic than she does.
    Davis campaign is trying to paint a tear-jerking story of ‘trials and
    struggles, followed by triumph'; the truth being the trials and
    struggles were temporary- and alleviated by a convenient marriage.
    Meanwhile, there sits her opponent- in a wheelchair, with too much class
    to beat his chest about triumph over the adversities he faces EVERY
    DAY. Take it from a parent with an ‘daughter’ (in all but blood) living
    in a wheelchair and a son who fought his way out of one, Wendy need to
    roll a day in one of those chairs to relearn what conquering adversity
    is all about.

    Wendy Davis is just the latest form of Madonna, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, or Miley Cyrus. Just a gimmick, for them it was the attention getting outlandishness. Is anyone of those even close to Judy Garland or Anne Margret? Not even close. The same goes for Wendy Davis. We all can guess how She got where She is.

    Seems like many Women do that now a days if you don’t believe me just look at some of the images on TV or online. My apologies to the Conservative God fearing Women but, Women today seem to be willing to expose themselves to make a buck or get noticed.

    Wendy Davis isn’t going to be Texas’s next Governor and the exposure, is just that exposure. She is just exposing Herself to get notoriety. I wouldn’t doubt if She doesn’t make it in Politics Playboy, will be Her next exposure.

  • Memphis Viking

    Not only did Jeff Davis take custody of their daughter, he also took custody of her daughter from her previous marriage.

  • chamuiel

    Let’s face it, Windy is a blonde.

  • LK

    Oops! Lies? Wendy Davis, my-my! What is a corybantic frenzy? Just ask the acid-head, Wendy the mind, that lost its balance. She is like one possessed or a dunder-pate, which means the vacancy of the mind. Abortion is murder; no other way to put it. This is called the shedding of innocent blood, (SIN). I don’t think I would like to walk in your shoes, no not I.
    (Repent Jesus Christ Saves) .

  • IllinoisHostage

    She sounds a lot like Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro without the daddy money. She obviously was forced to go out and get some baby daddy money. Poor thing, victimized by our sexist society. Odd how these feminist mavericks love to rack up the SIR names.

  • BlueViolets

    So her opponent’s body doesn’t work but his mind does. And little Wendy’s body works but her mind doesn’t. Guess it doesn’t take a genius to figure out the right person for the job.

  • DocJimmy

    It’s good to see Jeff Davis has custody of their daughter(s), otherwise; with Wendy’s mind-set, she might try to abort her as well. Now she’s a lawyer, schooled in the art of semantics and twisting and tweeking ethics and morality until killing a human being prior to its birth becomes vogue. She might do well in California, Colorado or New York, but; she has no place in Texas.
