Do the Republicans plan on talking about contraception for the next 9 months?

Do they really think this will win elections?

While people still are still hungover from a Republican Induced recession, they have nothing but oppression of women to offer!

2. Well, they've already used up all their "Hatred of Islam" chips

and homophobia hasn't been polling too well with voters lately. So yeah, plain ol' vanilla yogurt misogyny will have to do

7. It's about time for them to bring up illegals again in a big way, guess they must be

updating their list for their next round of targets for their hatred and bigotry.

4. Wel, ironically this makes sense. A nine-month gestational period.

Which suggests that they'll birth a big fat goose egg in November.

5. I hope they do keep it up. Young married couples from both sides of the aisle use

contraceptives. So they would lose a lot of male votes in the younger than 40 group as well as the female vote of all ages.

6. that question reminds me of a Romney quote

Laura Ingraham questioned some aspect of his strategy, he responded, "do you have a better idea, Laura?"

8. Digging up this rhetorical relic at this time shows how empty their quiver is.

The issue was settled decades ago. They are just hoping that enough folks don't remember their crushing loss and are able to be manipulated.

The Repubs represent nobody but their wealthy eccentric donors.

28. I'm generally thinking that not remembering mostly leads to

wondering what in fuck's sake they are talking about? What manner of relic-brain does one have to be to find a way to be hung up on birth control.

At this point, we are entering the area where it must be seriously considered that they are trying to lose and if that is so, we best figure it out quick.

I'm not certain that in real life that I have ever heard an anti-birth control word in decades and when I did it was old, super religious, white folks. I can't imagine they have any respectable demographic from this that wasn't already locked down so tight that it would take a team of a million locksmiths a thousand years to get them loose AND they damn well know it.

I don't see the math, who are all the anti-birth control demograpics? I am glad to deal with many, many people and going a lot of years with nary a word. Hell, I wonder before this little nonsense how long say, Pat Robertson had gone between calls for birth control jihads.

10. HAHA It is truly amazing to me. I figured they'd dig up the anti-abortion stuff but

never ever all the way back to questioning the right to contraceptives. That clip
of Sanitarium saying contraception leads to sexual behaviors (duh)is just so far out
of the mainstream - it makes him look creepy. People who say things like that
are the ones you find out later had sex with a boy in a bathroom.

11. What else do they have?

Their economic ideas are more extremist than Bewsh, they can't bring up their ChurchMerica plan, their war ideas are falling on deaf ears . . . it's CULTURE WAR TIME!!

15. They still have the gun/ "Urban crime" card that they can play

where they can pit bipartisan NRA members against each other and bash minorities. That's about all that is left.

12. I think the DEMS shoudl continue to talk about the right to contraception for the next 9 months.

 

Keep pounding on the line that the Republicans want to deny you that right. Make sure that even people who don't pay much attention to the news get the message that the Republicans are all about taking away your rights.

But of course they won't. The Dems are all too wishy-washy to adopt a winning strategy.

17. Contraception is not the "winning strategy", the economy and things to improve it IS.

The fascist RWingers distraction-tactic-du jour is being done BECAUSE the economy is improving and they don't want people to hear that. They would rather have you get bogged down in nonsense that will never reach the President's desk.

22. Well DOH! I didn't mean it should be our ONLY strategy.

 

Only that we shouldn't miss a chance to loudly advertise a Republican view that is very unpopular with the majority of voters, that can only be to the good.

23. The subject has already gone viral on the net`

And Santorum's dumb ass benefactor added to it even more tonight on Lawrence O'Donnell...

The repuke appearances are free ads for Democrats. The more they open their mouths, the more the polls go up in favor of Democrats.

26. You're right about that!

 

This falls under the category of giving them as much rope as they want, since they seem to have raised the art of hanging themselves to new highs.

16. I think the plan is to find something to get the base interested

gays, abortion, guns fires up their base. The health care issue work in 2010. I guess to many they think this is another Obamacare issue. It seems to be helping internally in the GOP. As us outside the GOP see it, long range America doesn't appear to be interested in a birth control free nation. Win the primary lose the November elections.

One trick pony.

I would like to hear about what the hell they are thinking about the economy, jobs, etc. This pared with this every 4 years abortion/contraception bs will put them under.

19. But you see Republicans must yammer about something. Think about it,, what do they have to offer

other than hate and fear. So just let them carry on about contraception, if we pay it no mind they will have to focus on more important problems facing America. Like mice. Yes mice. No not the furry rodent verity, I mean that dastardly thing on you're desk with the wire coming out the back of it. Do you not know that mice are part of an evil socialist plot by Obama with the help of Microsoft and Apple. Like entitlements, such as clean water, we have become dependent on mice to communicate. Do you know that more Americans are dependent on the mouse than are dependent on food stamps. If the democrats can make the general public dependent on the mouse then we will vote for democrats to preserve that free ride!
Sorry folk sometimes I try to think like a right winger.
Frankly I prefer track balls. Guess I'm just a rebel.

Let them keep talking. Shhhh!
