A political adviser to President Barack Obama said Tuesday the administration didnt intend to abridge anyones religious freedom with its regulation requiring church-affiliated employers to cover birth control for their workers.
This is an important issue. Its important for millions of women around the country, said Axelrod, the political adviser to Obamas re-election campaign. We want to resolve it in an appropriate way and were going to do that.

Obama's team has made a serious mis-calculation. I think there is a large group of Catholics who may personally favor the availability of contraception, but will react VERY negatively to Obama imposing his views on the Catholic Church. And anyone who is paying attention knows this is simply a first step to including abortion coverage, which is significantly less tolerated in the Catholic community than contraception.
NO. WILL NOT LOWER MY VOICE. I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT YOU UNTIL YOU RETREAT TO WHATEVER COWARDICE CHAMBER YOU RETIRE TO, YOU EFFEMINATE METROSEXUAL.
That’s rich. Democrat Axelrod advising lowering voices when it’s the Democrats who specialize in running to the nearest TV camera or open mic to loudly exagerrate, invent or outright lie about anything they think can score points against an opponent.
Axelrod knows he has a loser here. The real key is not to let him turn it around to Barry’s advantage. Proclaim it loud, and even louder now that Axelrod calls for lower voices. Remind people often how Barry’s HHS has overstepped the Constitution and how the rest of his regime continues to do so on a daily basis.
Calls for a lower voice means they’re embarrassed. Good. Let’s keep ‘em that way.
My BS meter broke its peg!!
Also, I find it fascinating that the WaPo tries to portray Obama insider David Axelrod as a minor player by describing him as a "political advisor". Axelrod has been a driving force in the Obama Administration from the bginning and he has continued to drive zero further to the left.
Dude, haven’t you learned, by definition you can never win an argument with a woman.......
I am SO sick of listening to ANTI-CHRISTIANS!! Obama will SWOOP in and save the day, and all the Catholics will worship at his feet for saving them. It’s all cooked up.....EITHER WAY HE WINS!!
Is that a REAL FISH???
Better late than never, but the time to start was four decades ago when the bloody murders were legalized.
OMG, that was so good, thanks for posting, going out to everyone on my email list.

Typical Saul Alinsky, Barack Hussein Obama tactic. Create the problem.
Then ‘find’ the solution’ to the problem...
Yeah I have to agree. They are starting to feel the heat of the response to their ill conceived plans and now are not wanting to be held responsible for their stupidity.
Ping your list Lucy on post #43.
The essence of liberalism is to do what you want to do and avoid the consequences.
“Shut up, he explained”
Is the way libs “debate”.
Yes, they will throw their own left wing under the bus.
“I am SO sick of listening to ANTI-CHRISTIANS!! Obama will SWOOP in and save the day, and all the Catholics will worship at his feet for saving them.....”
WOW! What a statement. First of all, 46% of Catholics did not vote for Obama! They voted for McCain.
Second, like every other gorup, there are many independent Catholoics who voted for Obama. Then there are well meaning liberal Catholics who voted for Obama too.
I personally know 2 ladies in my parish who were for Obama. I confronted them with the fact that Obama was very much anti-life, but they thought it was OK, since they had a history of voting for Democrats, and they thought the Republican party was not so much for the poor (heard that before??). Well, I certainly let them know that I would never vote for anyone who was disrespectful of human life. I happen to know these ladies are good practicing Catholic women. I told them I hoped that I was wrong about Obama because I did not trust him at all. I cannot help but think that they are now regretting voting for Obama. I wonder if they will ever admit their error? Especially since I told them that in Hitler’s Germany the Nazis began slowly until they had everyone under their power.
Look, I’m a Catholic that goes to Mass every day.....Practicing Catholics who have a BRAIN would NOT vote for Obama.
