What a spectacle, 4 middle aged, white guys discussing contraception!! Welcome to the bizarro world of the Republican debates, where the idiots in the audience boo and clap like they were watching an old silent movie (if only they were). There was a recent cartoon of Obama sitting in the White House with a big bowl of popcorn watching the debates and laughing, as well he should.
The left has made a big deal about this contraception debate with a “what century are we in” tag line, but I would remind everybody; people like to fuck and they have loved it in all century’s and most of the time they are NOT interested in procreation, in fact, generally they are specifically NOT interested in procreation even in the context of marriage (Sorry Rick!).
The issue was one of religious freedom (after the inept Obama administration angered the Catholic Church with the Obamacare mandate) and that is where it needed to stay and not get sidetracked into their personal views on contraception. One the other hand this just fits nicely into the Republican Party’s campaign to make sure Obama is reelected to a second term. It also works well in that it further highlights that their “electable” candidate, Romney, has NO perceptible personal standards or beliefs (beyond the belief that he should be President) and no real vision for the county. Christ, they don’t even like him!
If the Republican have any sense at all, they will cancel all further debates and start to pivot quickly to the general election, if they going to subject us to Romney, let’s get on with it. Romney might have some kind of shot at the presidency if he starts working at it now. Let Rick get on with procreating, Newt can chase broads and reopen his Tiffany’s charge account and Libertarian Ron Paul can go back to Texas and continue his case for liberty and sanity with a 3rd Party run.
