Reid on Adelson, Ctd.

by Ramesh Ponnuru

Wait a minute. Reid is saying that Adelson is “great on all social issues” and “are in keeping with the Democrats on choice”? I guess Reid has decided that there’s no longer any point in pretending to be pro-life himself. Or has he just forgotten to stay in character?

John McCormack reported in March 2009: “Reid spokesman Jim Manley told me during a phone interview that Senator Reid has not changed his position on abortion since 1998. Senator Reid ‘is strongly pro-life,’ Manley said, ‘and I resent any suggestion to the contrary, and his voting record speaks for himself.’”

Update: The mask slipped last year, too, when Reid blamed Kermit Gosnell’s crimes on laws restricting abortion.
