Positively Orwellian. The Democrats, with the assistance of Little Georgie Stephanopoulos, created this whole contraception nonsense, Obama tries to force it on the Catholic church, and it’s provided a convenient distraction from Obama’s disastrous economic record.
But now we learn it was all by design.
Republicans are ginning up a debate over social issues to distract from the improving economy, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) charged Friday.
Schumer said the birth-control mandate in President Obama’s healthcare law might have seemed like a winning issue for Republicans before Obama announced new “accommodations” for religious-affiliated employers. But the tide has turned since then, he said.
“Clearly, they’ve overplayed their hand,” Schumer said on a conference call with reporters.
The man lives in an alternate universe, obviously. Don’t you think it would be wiser to stay mum if it was a losing issue for Republicans?
