Obama Says Romney Is “In A Time Machine” Regarding Contraception Mandate

It’s utterly no surprise that all Obama has done so far is to attack Romney personally regarding his policies: he damned sure can’t run on his record

(The Hill) President Barack Obama said Friday that Republican positions on women’s health issues were “appalling” and “offensive” and equated an effort to block his regulation to mandate free contraception to like “being in a time machine” during a blistering speech at the Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington on Friday.

The president’s re-election team has made a push for female voters a key priority in his campaign strategy, and Obama sought to portray his legislative successes on health care as a boon for American women.

“This contraception fight in particular was illuminating. It was like being in a time machine,” Obama told the crowd, many of whom had purchased tickets that cost $1,000 to attend. “Republicans in Congress were going so far as to say an employer should be able to have a say in the health care decisions of its female employees.  You know, for a party that prides itself on being rabidly anti-regulations of almost any kind, for folks who claim to believe in freedom from government interference and meddling, it doesn’t seem to bother them when it comes to a woman’s health.”

Yet, it’s not a decision of the female employees. Nor is it the company having a say. The decisions are out of their hands. It’s the Central Government having a say in mandating that women be provided contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients with no copays. Which seems rather patronizing to women, in that it assumes that women aren’t competent enough to be able to earn the money to pay for these products.

What do you think, ladies? Do you enjoy the notion that Big Government needs to take care of you because you can’t do it yourself?

    Does he ever listen to what he says?

    Holy crap this guy is an idiot.

    The party that says they are against government interference is keeping that position when it comes to the health mandate.

    I think Biden is wearing off on him.

    my comment exactly gitarcarver.

    At a speech that is costing these people $1,000 to attend (money that could have easily been spent on contraception), Obama gives a speech about mandating free contraception.

    And in that speech, the derides the Republicans for wanting to get rid of Obama’s regulation of mandatory free contraception, Obama claims that the Repubs only want to over-regulate?

    This buffoon is an utter idiot and he has utter no clue about what he is reading and saying. He is inept, pathetic, dangerous, and a complete detriment to Freedom across the planet, let alone America.

    And our media are worse.
