What do pink tennis shoes taste like?

State Senator Wendy Davis (D-TX 10th), a candidate for Governor, had stated that she should have been a bit tighter with her language in the release of her personal story, once it was revealed that the story the campaign put forth was not entirely accurate. Apparently, it takes more than aday for a Harvard-educated attorney and her campaign staff to learn how to tighten up the language. The campaign released this statement:

We’re not surprised by Greg Abbott’s campaign attacks on the personal story of my life as a single mother who worked hard to get ahead. But they won’t work, because my story is the story of millions of Texas women who know the strength it takes when you’re young, alone and a mother. I’ve always been open about my life not because my story is unique, but because it isn’t.

The truth is that at age 19, I was a teenage mother living alone with my daughter in a trailer and struggling to keep us afloat on my way to a divorce. And I knew then that I was going to have to work my way up and out of that life if I was going to give my daughter a better life and a better future and that’s what I’ve done. I am proud of where I came from and I am proud of what I’ve been able to achieve through hard work and perseverance. And I guarantee you that anyone who tries to say otherwise hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.

Emphasis mine. Talk about sticking those pink-tennis-shoed feet in her mouth! Mr Abbott would probably love to walk a day in her shoes, but he’s a paraplegic, and has been in a wheelchair since 1984.

Wendy Davis’ tennis shoes

Mrs Davis’ life hasn’t been without struggle, no question about that. But the way that she “work(ed) my way up and out of that life if I was going to give my daughter a better life and a better future” was to marry a well-to-do man, have him pay her way through the last two years of college and then through Harvard Law School, walk out the day after he made the final payment on her student loans — an unfortunate coincidence, I’m certain — and then give up custody of her daughters to her ex-husband!

It would appear that Mrs Davis sees the best way to have given her daughters a better life was to leave them in the care of someone else. Maybe the best way for Mrs Davis to give Texans a better life is to leave them in the care of someone other than her as well.

  1. And it shouldn’t be forgotten that when Mrs Davis decided to give custody of her daughters to Jeff Davis — who wasn’t even the father of one of them — she wasn’t poor and down oh her luck; she was an attorney.

  2. It would appear that Mrs Davis sees the best way to have given her daughters a better life was to leave them in the care of someone else.

    It was. Getting away from this self-centered narcissist was the best thing that could happen to those kids. Well, that and the fact this delusional ass didn’t abort them to begin with. Typical leftist Democrat, everything’s “for the children”. Like killing them in the womb or abandoning them once you’re “set” in life. The husband got off cheap in my opinion.

    Why are leftists so self-absorbed, morally corrupt and bankrupt of all decency? It’s like it’s in their DNA or something.

  3. Abortion Barbie said that she “was a vibrant part of contributing to our family finances from the time I graduated to the time we separated in 2003.” OK, she was graduated from Harvard Law School in May of 1993, and admitted to the Texas state bar in November. From Wikipedia:

    Early in her law career Davis served in a federal clerkship under U.S. District Judge Jerry Buchmeyer. In 1994, she joined the Fort Worth office of Haynes & Boone and began practicing specialized litigation. She later became part owner of Safeco Title Co., the title company that her ex-husband Jeff Davis founded.

    Yet, according to the first article cited, Mrs Davis was ordered to pay $1,200 per month in child support. $14,400 per year in child support when she was a Harvard-educated attorney who had been practicing law for almost ten years.

    Were I to speculate — not that I would ever do such a thing! — I’d guess that the long-suffering Mr Davis was willing to accept almost anything just to make her go away.

  4. We’re not surprised by Greg Abbott’s campaign attacks on the personal story of my life as a single mother

    Excuse me, but since when did single mother become a bragging point? Especially since she isn’t technically “Single” at all, but divorced. Twice divorced, in fact.

  5. Being divorced is not a crime, last time I looked.

    Did anyone here state being divorced was a crime? But for one who calls himself “Moralist” it seems you can’t understand the immorality of using your husband to get through college then dumping your kids on him and taking off. That ain’t moral, Moralist. That’s self-centered and narcissistic. The type of things leftists do. But you should know that Perry.
