Contraception debate a diversion
There can be no doubt now that George Stephanopoulos, the former Bill Clinton adviser and presently an ABC news caster, is a Democrat operative.
He blew any credibility he may have had on January 7 when he hosted the Republican debates. He asked Mitt Romney about whether or not a state had the right to ban contraception.
This question came out of the blue. It didn’t make sense. Mitt Romney asked him where he was going with this question, and Stephanopoulos, instead of answering, repeated the question.
No state has even tried to ban contraception yet alone enact statutes which would make the use of contraception illegal. Romney explained this to Stephanopoulos, and still this Democrat operative insisted on an answer.
The audience began to boo, as they should have. Finally, this Democrat reporter and political hack moved on to other questions.
But the ground work had been laid. No one could figure out why Stephanopoulos asked the question until about a week later when the Democrat Party and Mr. Obama began to claim that the Republicans wanted to deny contraception to women. Since he cannot run on his record, Mr. Obama needs a diversion, anything that will take the people’s minds off of his numerous failures.
Rick Santorum, answering a hypothetical question, responded to some reporter that “the states may have the right to ban contraception.” This was a hypothetical question, and Santorum had nor does he now have any thought of banning contraception. He is a devout Catholic, and he has some strong opinions about contraception, the “morning after” pill, and other forms of birth control that go against the teachings of his church.
But Santorum didn’t start this fight. Mr. Obama and his cronies did. No Republican has said that they would ban contraception - not one. Yet the Democrats seem to be the ones obsessed with sex.
Have you seen the latest information about John Kennedy? This man, apparently, was a sex machine. Lyndon Johnson was not much better, and Bill Clinton set new world records for womanizing. All of this is on the public record if you doubt my word.
Kennedy was inviting interns to his bedroom with regularity, and the press knew it. But being good Democrats, they didn’t want to hurt Kennedy’s reputation.
Ted Kennedy was as obsessed with sex as any senator who ever served. He even managed to kill one of his female companions when they ran off a bridge late one night – after he had been drinking heavily, of course.
Barney Frank, a high ranking Democrat congressman, is going to marry his long-time male companion, and he thinks that the whole world is going to give him and him their best wishes. Democrats are for same-sex marriage, gay rights, abortion and promiscuity. It is no wonder why they are undermining the First Amendment by forcing the Catholic Church to provide birth control.
I know that you think I am exaggerating, but just last week, Sandra Fluke, an unmarried Georgetown law student, appeared before a congressional committee chaired by Nancy Pelosi. She admitted that she was having trouble paying for her contraception, so she wants the taxpayers to pick up the tab.
CNS News reports, “Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it is hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception. Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported that they struggled financially to pay for their own contraception. Georgetown does not include this benefit in their insurance program. It costs a female student $3000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school.”
Mr. Obama wants to force the taxpayer to pay the cost for co-eds to have “protected” sex. Do these women have no shame? What were they taught by their parents or their church?
Andrea Mitchell, a Democrat supporter who works for MSNBC, was interviewing Foster Friess, a Rick Santorum supporter. Since Democrats are obsessed with sex, Mitchell asked Mr. Friess about birth control.
“In my day, the gals used an aspirin held between their knees for birth control,” he responded. Naturally, Mitchell had to compose herself. The concepts of abstinence and morality were foreign thoughts that she could not comprehend.
Come to think of it, the “gals” in my generation always had an aspirin handy. Now I know why.
