From this Thursday evening's Hardball pre-debate and some of the post-debate coverage, Rep. Marsha Blackburn came on initially to field a few questions, playing the part of Paul Ryan for Chris Matthews, with her fellow House member Rep. John Yarmuth taking some questions that Joe Biden might be asked, and par for the course, Blackburn managed to throw a few whoppers out there.
She apparently wants Americans to believe that Republicans are now concerned about making everyone has health care coverage, even though they've repeatedly attempted to overturn the health care law that was initially their own party's response to Hillary-care and their own presidential candidate's plan in Massachusetts.
She also completely punted when Matthews attempted to pin her down on Paul Ryan's stance on this "fetal personhood" legislation that he and his side of the aisle have tried to push forward. She instead went into full attack mode on President Obama over and his policies and just kept repeating that she believes life begins at conception.
I hate to break it to the Congresswoman, but women who don't want to see their birth control pills outlawed, or those, like at least one of Mitt Romney's sons and daughter in laws, who used in vitro fertilization to get pregnant, might want a few more specifics on this topic and not just empty platitudes as we received here.
She apparently decided she hadn't had enough abuse yet on the network and came back on there post-debate, and Matthews hit her this time around for being another one of the Jack Welch, Donald Trump, job report truthers crowd.
