Obama Tells Reporters Asking About Contraception Controversy 'Come On, Guys'
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2012/02/09/obama-tells-reporter-asking-about-contraception-church-controversy-co ^

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: Let’s talk about this thing that’s developed. Even at a photo-op with the Italian Prime Minister late this afternoon, President Obama couldn’t escape questions about this contraceptive issue and religious organizations. Let’s 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?

Thats his teleprompters answer? Come on, guys,,,come on, guys? Wow. And the media obediently let it drop. He only has two choices.

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.

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.

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.

Don't let this clip get away. Some day your children or grandchildren will think of this the same way we remember, "I am not a crook."

"Come on guys" is his way of saying, "Don't ask me tough questions! We're all in this together here! We're on the same team, you and I!"

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."

It's Obama's way of circling the wagons. I pray that he keeps doing it all the way to the election!

"...I really wish his mommy woulda used contraceptives..."

Well, when 0bumbles was a kid, he asked his mother: "Mommy, how come you're white and I'm black?"

She said: Listen, kid, after that party, you're lucky you don't bark!"

“It’s obvious you know nothing about Catholics from your statement.”


Really? I know how most of them are going to vote, if nothing else. Huge numbers of Catholics use contraceptives and lots of them get abortions. Thats one of the biggest reasons obama got the majority of the Catholic vote last time,,,because he favors abortions and contraceptives. Right now there is a big firestorm over this, MAINLY BY THE CLERGY. But when it’s time to pull that lever in November, the majority of Catholics will not be pulling it for a Republican. And obama knows it full well. Hispanic Catholics are very conservative on matters like this. But they will overwhelmingly vote for obama anyway. All obama has to do is issue some more “come on, guys,” and this will be a non-issue in November.

Do the math. He only got 54% of self-identified Catholics last time. That's not exactly like the 95% he got from Blacks, or the 79% he got from Jews. It's barely a majority.

He's going to lose Catholic votes over this. I don't know how many. Many of the Catholics who are the most upset and angry (note: I didn't say "surprised") are like me. We know who and what Obozo is, and hell would freeze over before we'd vote for him.

Here’s what I think is going on with this. Notice this whole controversy is happening right on the heels of the Komen kerfluffle? Obama knows that he is infuriating the conservatives, but he doesn’t care about them and he never has. What’s important is that he is getting the feminist left in a tizzy about evil Republicans and Christians trying to squash their “reproductive freedoms”.

It’s just his strategy for re-election, and I’ll think we’ll see him and his surrogates instigating these crises over all his target demographics’ key issues up until election day. That way, he hopes to drive up turnout high enough to make up for all the disenchanted voters he has lost.

I don’t get it. Are you saying that they have five hands between them?

According to the picture and caption, we have:
1. Barack’s right hand on the couch next to him.
2. Barack’s left hand on his left leg per the first inset.
3 & 4. Moustache’s right hand and another hand on his right knee, per the second inset.
5. Moustache’s left hand in his lap, underneath his right leg.

That’s 5 hands!

Well Rick Warren finally spoke out after supporting him and other dimmocRats over the years.

Where is your pastor speaking out? Has your church taken a stance on this?

My best advice to you is to either shut up or support us Catholics, because other wise your religious freedom will be next.

“Did Obama pick a fight on birth control to motivate his base?”

“This will in a lot of ways be a faultline in this election,” says Bill Burton, who is with the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action. The election won’t turn on these kinds of cultural issues, but they can generate emotion and passion. Obama’s job approval is just above 50 percent among younger voters, a group that gave him 66 percent of their vote in 2008. “They’ve got to get young people jazzed up, and there are very few issues that get young women more jazzed up than contraception,” says Cook. Indeed, the Obama campaign website highlights the issue of contraception, along with the fact that it will be free once the Affordable Care Act is implemented.”

How very liberal of you. “Agree with me or shut up.” And for your information, I agree with the Catholic Church on this, despite your wishes to silence me/tell me what to say and think. I’m saying this will not be a big deal come election time, especially if obama offers a “compromise,” and the Catholic Church pulls a Bart Stupak.

I remember him saying before in his first year on something else

“camon guys, give the president a break”

I guess he likes playing the who’s your buddy who’s your pal .. especially when he can’t answer a question. Whine a little bit like a child.

Really? You know nothing of the kind. You’re assuming this based on your anti-Catholic bigotry.

I’ve read about the “firestorm” and you’re wrong on what it says or means.

You’re just one of the many Catholic haters on FR. Bet you don’t like Jews either. You must be a Paulbot.
