As you know if you regularly read this rag, I have screamed, cried, and beat my head against the floor about some of the compromises the President has made with the lunatics of the Rushpubliscum Party. I said years ago that there was no way to compromise with these morons, and that if he took his case to the people, he would prevail more often than not.

Sometime in the last few months, he started listening, and I appreciate that. But, given the MSM’s fanned flames of the supposed “corner” that the President had painted himself into over the healthcare reform contraception rule, I was scared to death he’d capitulate, once again, even though a huge majority of us are completely in agreement with the policy.

And…. this time, he came up with absolutely perfect language to be inserted. The Jesusistanis would be able to opt-out if it offended their wittle feewings, and women who wanted birth control could still get it, even if they happened to be working for a Jesusistani wack job organization.

The Jesusistanis, of course, have just proven my point; there is no such thing as “compromise” with bully-morons. The only “compromise” they want to talk about is “we’ll do what I want, and you can agree with it.”

I like this. Let this be an issue in the 2012 election cycle. PLEASE.

 

President Barack Obama’s political shifting over contraception coverage has united conservative Republicans in protest even as they split over which GOP presidential hopeful should face him in the general election.

The candidates themselves, campaigning for votes in the Conservative Political Action Conference’s straw poll Saturday, competed to present themselves as most opposed to Obama’s health care law.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the straw poll Saturday, followed by former senator Rick Santorum, former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who did not attend the annual conference of conservative activists.

On Friday, after three weeks of controversy that pitted the nation’s Catholic bishops against the White House, Obama revised his policy. Instead of requiring employers to cover contraception, the policy would now require insurance companies to provide free birth control coverage in separate agreements with workers who want it.

Conservatives scoffed.

“It’s an accounting trick — the employer still pays the insurance,” said Mike Gonzales of the Heritage Foundation. “Do [White House officials] think people are stupid?”

The controversy, several said, is a natural outgrowth of what they consider the overreach of Obama’s health care mandate.

“My problem is the coercion” in the broader overhaul, said Washington real estate agent Bruce Majors.

Many shrugged off Obama’s rewrite.

“It’s not like they said, ‘We were wrong,’” said Spencer Larson, an investment adviser from Moraga, Calif. “They said, ‘We can’t afford this politically.’”

“Nothing in health insurance is free,” agreed Cherylyn Harley LeBon, a lawyer. “The cost is going to be passed on” to employees of religious organizations and everyone else, she said.

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee, closed the three-day CPAC gathering Saturday with a conservative call to arms full of derision for Obama.

Palin did not endorse a presidential candidate. But she offered little comfort to Romney, who is imploring Republicans to rally around his candidacy so he can start focusing on Obama and November.

“I believe the competition has got to keep going,” Palin said to loud applause. “Competition strengthens us,” she said. “Competition will lead us to victory in 2012.”

Palin decried “the Washington of the permanent class,” where she said people arrive with good intentions and stay to enrich themselves and their cronies.

The whole debate over government health insurance has cost Obama plenty. His party lost the House majority in 2010 in part because of a backlash over the new law’s demands on private industry and individuals.

The resentments erupted anew after the administration announced Jan. 20 that religious-affiliated employers, except houses of worship, had to cover birth control for free as preventive care for women. These hospitals, schools and charities were given until August 2013 to comply.

Under the revision, women will still get guaranteed access to birth control without co-pays or premiums no matter where they work, a provision of Obama’s health care law that he insisted must remain. But religious universities and hospitals that see contraception as an unconscionable violation of their faith can refuse to cover it. Insurance companies will then have to step in to do so.

A Fox “News” poll released Friday showed a large majority, 61 percent, of Americans approve of requiring employer health plans to cover birth control for women. Thirty-four percent disapproved. The nationwide survey was conducted by telephone among 1,110 registered voters Feb. 6-9 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points, the network said.

 

In a FOX “News” poll, 61% agreed with the policy. And the thirty-four percent, of course, will be Klanbaggers, who are far more likely to be sitting at home, ready to answer the land-line, because they’ve retired and sit near the phone. I do not believe, for a second, that 34% of Americans disagree with this rule.

But I hope the Rushpubliscums believe it. I hope they keep right on pandering to their Klanbaggers with MORE racism, MORE misogyny, and MORE fearmongering.

It’s good for my agenda, after all.
