Obama stepped in a big pile of ish and now is trying to get it off his shoe with a stick.  What an absolute control freak.  Typical liberal thinking.  We know better and need to dictate to the peasants how they should act and think. True colors are vividly coming into the front.  Holder Obama and Napalitano (among the other unamaed background players) just cant help themselves. Stay tuned for more upcoming catastrophic edicts comin on down from DC.

So, if I am keeping up with this correctly…first, Obama backs a “new rule” in which employers must offer fully covered birth control through insurance.  Now, he is giving religious groups a chance to opt out?  So those employees of religious institutions (many hospitals and adoption groups fall under this category) must get additional coverage if they want birth control?  I’m so confused.  Why is the government trying to accommodate religion?  Furthermore, what happened to separation of church and state?!

@justsayin  No, the burden has just been shifted from employers to insurers, no additional coverage needed.
