Comments on: Romney’s ads, the Komen firestorm, and a Foxconn book Steven Brill Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:30:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: RynoM Wed, 15 Feb 2012 05:53:07 +0000 Well that was fun, thanks. of course I understand that asking questions is much easier than answering them, but, as a prod to our perennially neutered press, mainstream or otherwise, they are interesting at least. And they likely will not be asked, at least not by anyone who wants to keep their job. Unless they have a byline. And then they won’t have the leash length to pursue them. What a shame.

Planned Parenthood was not taken by surprise with the cut, they knew or suspected it was coming.

Obama was months in the planning of the Catholic Contraception order, and knew it would be controversial.

I suspect (ref: cynical mind), that O knew 1) the Cat Cards are not popular, and 2) the only cat women not practicing birth control are the ones actually trying to get preggers, and 3) that Nov ’12 is going to be very tight, and will come down to swingers. Lock in femme swingers, and he may well be where he needs to be. Komen response looked like one of them band-wagon things.

Law of unintended consequences time, and the rise of the articulate full-time connected.
