With the U.S. Economy showing improvement, manufacturing up, orders up, retail sales up, stock market approaching a record high, and corporate profits continuing to rise, unemployment filings down, and the housing market showing some signs of improving, the Republican Party is changing their focus on the election from the economy.
With the economy improving the bashing over President Obama’s economic policy has slowed and the GOP is now going to their favorite campaign target, abortion and birth control.
In an attempt to hold onto their conservative/religious base their hot issue the past two weeks has been insurance coverage for birth control pills to religious orders and organizations. Obama zapped that in a hurry giving those who want birth control coverage at no expense to their employers.
Not satisfied with that the Republicans have used the message that this was an example of too much government interference. Well, that is a matter of choice, whether you are pro-life, and honestly don’t use birth control, although I don’t see many of these people with large families, or if you are pro-choice and use birth control.
Each day to the disgust of Republicans who can’t decide on a front-runner for their parties presidential nominee, it looks more like another term for the current president.
This country could do much worse.
