Schmuck Schumer: Republicans Talking About Contraception as a Diversion From This Awesome Economy

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.

By the Republicans.

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?

    ain’t this the guy that got caught coaching his fellow Dem Seanators to “blame Republicans for everything ” in response to any question that might be asked, on a prior conference call?

    Isn’t this one of the guys who gets his salary and health care for life when he loses his job? I’d think the economy was pretty awesome, too, if I had the same deal.
