Posted on 02/09/2012 4:23:03 PM PST by chessplayer
Barack Obama today deflected reporters from questions about the growing controversy surrounding religious organizations having to provide contraception to their employees.
As MSNBC's Chris Matthews reported on Hardball moments ago, the President stonewalled reporters saying, "Come on, guys" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Lets talk about this thing thats developed. Even at a photo-op with the Italian Prime Minister late this afternoon, President Obama couldnt escape questions about this contraceptive issue and religious organizations. Lets listen to what happened.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Is there anything on the contraception controversy that you can share with us?
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Thank you, guys. Come on, guys.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MATTHEWS: [Laughing] Come on, guys? Come on, guys?
1) Back down on this and tick off his supporters in an election year.
2) Crush religious freedom in the US.
I think he will choose the 2nd option. He knows he will still get the majority of women and Catholic votes.
Plus most of the media is on his side in this.
He has a third choice - Hudna - which is what he is going to do.
I think 0bama knows that he has stepped in it, but he cannot get out the mess because the radical feminazis (Moochell, Pelosi, Sebelius, Hillary Clinton, Boxer, et al) will kick his ass if he backs down. The feminazis hate the Catholic Church.
What a rhetorical whiz!
What a great speaker!
I really wish his mommy woulda used contraceptives
Do you really believe that Independents will support this “initiative”? This is exactly the kind of issue that makes voters choose the “I” designation. Otherwise, they’d be Rats.
Further proof that our "independent" media has voluntarily abdicated their role as impartial mirror, and is now officially a campaign arm of the most corrupt and destructive administration in history.
"Come on guys."
Why is the governemtn into the fertilization business?? And the gay business and the abortion business and the banking business and the car business and the wind business etc etc....
It's Obama's way of circling the wagons. I pray that he keeps doing it all the way to the election!
Barack 0baMao if proof we need Planned Parenthood.
It’s obvious you know nothing about Catholics from your statement.
Add to that, “Will you just let me eat my waffle?!”
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
