Obama Ignores Economy Because of a Fluke
President Obama attended three fundraisers in New York city yesterday, making it a record 100 since arriving in the White House. That’s an average of one fundraiser every 11 days since taking the oath of office. On the stump, Obama will keep saying he’s focused like a laser beam on the economy. In reality he is only focused on his re-election.
In his most audacious attempt to avoid responsibility for high gas prices, record home foreclosures, unemployment and a stagnant economy, Barack Obama and his proxies have focused like a laser beam on contraception.
This carefully orchestrated campaign strategy was first introduced by George Stephanopoulos in New Hampshire, at the ABC News hosted Republican Debate on January 7th. Stephanopoulos asked Romney if he believed, “that states have the right to ban contraception, or is that trumped by a constitutional right to privacy?”
There has been some form of birth control available in the United States since 1840, when the condom was introduced. This was hardly the topic of conversation in the public square on January 7th, but it certainly is now.
The Stephanopoulos question was merely a trial balloon until it roiled over a month later when HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius announced a new ObamaCare edict on birth control for all. That was then walked back and called an “accommodation” to appease the Catholic Church over the right of religious freedom.
The din has not died down and has effectively put the Republican party, their presidential hopefuls and religious institutions into a polarizing political battle with the left and President Obama in this crucial election year.
What do you think is the most important conversation today around the dinner table; obtaining birth control pills or whether they can afford groceries or gasoline? Of course It’s the economy, stupid!
To the White House, President Obama and his campaign it’s standard Saul Alinsky; Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.
The “target” was picked on January 7th. It was “frozen” on February 10th with the so called religious “accommodation”. It was “personalized” on February 23rd with the testimony of third year Georgetown Jesuit School Law student, Sandra Fluke and the “polarization” has been non stop.
Before an unofficial committee, chaired by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Ms. Fluke stated “Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary. Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.” (full text here)
So at Georgetown, the dinner conversation is focused on the “high” cost of birth control rather than the horrible job prospects when these students graduate. Fluke’s testimony was the nuclear option to make contraception or really the right for government paid birth control, the only topic in the news, talk radio and the 2012 Presidential campaign.
Fueled by Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke has become the new spokesperson on “Reproductive Rights” and woman’s freedom, or as Michelle Malkin calls her, a “femme-agogue tool”.
Meanwhile the economy is going no where, but our flake of a president was on the phone to give solace to Sandra Fluke.
“He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women,” she told MSNBC. “What was really personal for me was he said to tell my parents that they should be proud.”
Fluke’s parents were very proud when Sandra got accepted to Georgetown. On her first day, Fluke had full knowledge of Georgetown Jesuit school’s strict religious doctrine against all forms of birth control. Ms. Fluke accepted this with the intention of overturning it. They must have been even prouder when she became the president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice.
So when one Alinsky community organizer, Barack Obama, speaks to another Alinsky community organizer, Sandra Fluke; they practically complete each other sentences.
Meanwhile, the economy is burning, America is in peril, the citizens are suffering and President Obama isn’t doing a damn thing about it, except campaigning.
