    Default How Obama Set a Trap for the Right

    Conservatives have gleefully used the Obama administrations’ requirement that health insurance plans cover birth control as a way to revive the culture wars. But they’re not winning, writes Andrew Sullivan.

    Did he not compromise even before the conservative strategy, if they had one, gathered momentum. I thought it was more Catholics than conservatives that jumped in right away.

    Sorta like the trap Custer sprung on the Indians, Obama was a Bit Luckier....

    It was fcuking with the church that made him do a 180 deg as he wasnt going to win and desperately needed it to go away during an election.

    I believe the White House spells Ambush C-A-V-E-D... but hey get that truth team spinning like a gyro

    What Hate, it's the truth. Your boy caved because he needed the controversy to go away fast during an election year. The Church is a Powerful enemy to fight and he doesnt have the stones, the money, or the resources to fight the archdioceses in the USA.

    Isn't that exactly why he is winning? because he "C-A-V-E-D". Who wants it to desperately go away now? NOT HIM! The public is with him on this issue at this moment.


    "C-A-V-E-D" = strategic retreat. Sometimes you must lose a couple battles in order to win the war.

    His "C-A-V-E-D" even made you happy

    Either way, so instead of good governance, i.e. his job description, he just plays political games and destroys enemies?

    Yeah, not surprising from someone from the Chicago political machine. What else did you expect America?

    "governance" has never been part of a president's job description. The President of United States does not govern (run or control). The presidency is a leadership position in which the President tries to persuade American people and the Congress to go along with his or her programs. This ability to persuade is influenced by many factors, i.e. first 100 days in office, the economy, wars, decisive election victory, relation with the Congress, etc....

    For example, because the President does not run the country, it is quite ignorant to blame or praise Bush or Obama for the economy. If anything, the economy affects them rather than the other way around. Unfortunately, most if not all Americans judge a President by how the economy is doing, which they have no control of.

    There is an awful lot of Catholic Hispanics and evangelical Blacks whose votes Barry O is going to need in November. Putting mandates on hospitals and clinics run by religious orgs that force them to do things against their fundamental beliefs is not going to play well with those voters.

    the one thing I love about his presidency is how the liberal media tries to spin his every **** up as some sort of master plan
    it's hilarious
