    My guess is that Obama would rather talk about this than the economy.

    According to the survey, 50% of the public disapproves of the Obama administration policy, with 44% saying they approve of the plan. The margin is right at the edge of the poll's sampling error.

    "Surveys on this topic tell a mixed story because many Americans know little about the issue. Recent CBS and Fox polls indicate support for the new policy, using questions that describe the new policy in some detail. "

    Hardly an oopsie considering the CNN poll was conducted after the others. Ultimately it's again reflective of the fact that Obama is more interested in fostering a debate over contraception than actually working at tangible ways to improve the employment rate.

    No. What Obama is interested in is ensuring women's health isn't jeopardized by religious influence in the public sphere.

    Oh Tool Please ....

    What the republican party is doing is waging war on reproductive rights all across the nation
    Don't believe me?
    Lets see what the American Taliban has been doing lately
    In Virginia they're trying to pass the tried and true personhood amendment where a person starts at conception which makes it illegal to have an IUD
    ALSO if you want to terminate a pregnancy ... for what ever reason a woman will have to have a Transvaginal ultrasound
    .... which means that you'll have a metal probe stuck up your VaJayJay
    In the State of Oklahoma if a new law will charge a Dr with Murder if he terminates a pregnancy even if it is to save the mother's life
    These are crazy people and it's gonna make a FANTASTIC campaign issue
    So tell your friends to keep it up ... means more votes to take back the House

    This is exactly right.
    The Republicans throw red meat to their extremist base (who would vote for them anyway) while ignoring the economy, and in the process driving away centrist/independent voters. Conservatives are stuck in the early 90s, when gay-bashing and oppressing women equalled electoral wins. Those days are long gone -- as indicated by their continued falling poll numbers.
