Dear Lord …
I must admit that when Obama first announced the policy of requiring health insurers to cover birth control, and the initial outcry started, I had to wonder why he chose to stir up this hornets at this time. But after the absolutely batshit response by the far right, I now view it as a masterful campaign strategy. When you think about it, based on the economic state of the country this election should be a cakewalk for the GOP. The sitting president always ends up owning the current state regardless of whether it is his fault or not. But this time it is not even close to that. First OWS has effectively shifted the narrative on the fiscal crisis, with an unintended complicity by the GOP as they told the average American, “we’ll screw you now, give tax breaks to businesses and the uber-wealthy and everything will be better … later.” Secondly, the right has engaged in this social warfare against unions, abortion, gay marriage, and now contraception. The second thing is totally turning off ‘independent’ voters in droves as the the far right is dominating the this conversation and coming off as completely batshit. And while the economy may suck, and Obama may not be performing up to expectations, independents certainly don’t want don’t want some batty social idealouges running things. It’s one thing when you try to get in someones wallet and a whole other when you try to get into their bedrooms.
some of the batty comments
[Obama is] underestimating the wisdom of women. Because women understand there is access to preventative care and contraception out there, and we don’t need government to tell our employers that they must provide that for us.
huh? That doesn’t even make sense as a rebuttal
Truly, it is a war on our religious liberties and that violation of conscience that he would mandate that is un-American because it violates our First Amendment in our Constitution.
Actually no it doesn’t. When religious organization chooses to enter the business realm they must obey those rules. If you don’t want a black person in your home – fine, you can do that (even tough it makes you an ASS). Don’t want a black person in your restaurant – not fine.
“I am not a believer of birth control. It goes down the line of being able to do whatever you want to do without having the responsibility that comes with that.”
ahh, so it is OK for you to impose your religious views on the rest of us.
And go to the recent Jon Stewart post here to hear the real batty responses. Hitler?!? seriously? Yes you are freaking out independents enough that they will vote for Obama simply because “well at least he isn’t nutz”
