Notice what Trump didn't mention ...

I watched Donald Trump's speech last night.

He rambled on for well over an hour, painting an ominous picture of America, and citing plenty of red meat issues he will address as President.

But I noticed one issue he failed to mention.


Yes, this "prolifer" didn't even allude to the issue. Not once. The closest he came was mentioning the picking of Supreme Court justices, making sure they will be ones who uphold the Constitution.

Such justices might rule in favor of life, but this was really an appeal to the NRA.

And he did mention freeing clergy to bring up politics in church.

Ooo, let's see how that one goes over if priests start talking about immigration policies.

But nothing specific about abortion.

Which suggests that the issue is really not one that's all that important to him. It certainly does not seem to be one he thinks about all that much.

In that he would be like most Republicans.

Pax et bonum

I too was disappointed at the omission of this extremely important subject. One can only hope that when he said that he'll appoint justices in the mold of Scalia, that these appointees would render their decisions similarly, especially on the issue of abortion.
