Holy Smokes! Obama makes an over reach on birth control and then backpedals to the obvious position of not requiring religious organizations to fund it if it at odds with their beliefs. Republicans, faced with a chance to let Obama twist in the wind a bit and save it up to bring up for the next 9 months, BLOW IT.
How in the world do you go from there to apparently wanting to stop all women from using birth control? Are the Catholic Bishops running the GOP? Are condoms next? Doesn't the GOP know that porn is more popular in Red states?
Last I saw, there were more women than men in the US. Last I knew, the vast majority of women use some form of birth control at some time in their lives. Many of them using BCPs.
Do Republicans just want to lose?
Clearly this is what Romney means by severely conservative: so conservative that you have a burning desire to violate the separation of church and state to impose the most antiquated and misogynistic religious beliefs with regard to women's health to appease some imaginary voting block.
May be someone will explain to me why the Republican candidates would turn Obama's mistake into a massive victory for him?
Do you hear that flushing noise GOP? That is your presidential aspirations going down the toilet.
Everyone else - if the GOP wins - start stockpiling beer and condoms. Because shackling women to the house, pregnant and barefoot, is just phase I of some fantasy about reviving the Victorian age.
PS We're trying to hire a couple of employees and we're able to give raises this year- after 2 years of downsizing and tightening. I hope this means that the economy really has started to turn loose some cash. It feels good, so I hope it sticks.
