If several of the recent polls are correct, Brown may have benefited from his positions on social issues in the last few weeks, such as the one over whether Catholic institutions should be forced to provide contraception in their health care plans for workers.
That has meant that the discussion has not focused on her economic message, which Democratic analysts feel is Warren’s best bet to beat Brown.
“Recently, issues that have been raised – whether to provide contraception as part of the health care reform and whether women should serve in the front lines of combat – have been on Brown’s turf,’’ [extreme liberal Democratic activist Dan] Payne said.
Rush Limbaugh’s lame, unfunny “shtick” about Ms. Fluke was stupid and missed the point. The real issue was—and is—whether or not it will remain legal in America to be a practicing Catholic and operate Catholic (or other religious) institutions with your teachings and beliefs intact.
The Left can scream all they want about “access to women’s health,” but the entire time Ted Kennedy was in the US Senate, we had the exact same system we have now re: religious institutions and nobody accused Sen. Kennedy of denying women access to health care (well, other than that ONE woman who really, really needed it but was trapped in a submerged car).
President Obama has launched an attack on religious institutions and the very notion of religious freedom. Catholics aren’t “waging a war on women,” they’re just trying to be Catholics. Nobody’s forced to work at their hospitals or attend their law schools.
Catholics know this, and they know Elizabeth Warren is part of the attack on their freedom.
Which is one of the many reasons that Scott Brown—a Republican in a state with only 11.3 percent registered GOP voters—is beating her.
