Yeah, good luck with that...

A whole lot of carts are getting put before the horse in the Romney campaign -- but their aspirations are as uninspiring as their candidate:

Another Romney adviser said the governor would spend just enough time on social issues to dispatch Santorum and then move on.

“He’s going to pivot back,” the adviser said. “He’s not going to go far from the core set of Romney issues, which is economic turnaround, recovery, jobs.”
Mitt wants to get off the pill as soon as possible.
Good luck getting Pandora's box closed (Pandora can't afford contraceptives):
Catholic bishops, energized by a battle over contraception funding, are planning an aggressive campaign to rally Americans against a long list of government measures which they say intrude on religious liberty...they are aiming higher still, lobbying Congress to enact a law that would let any employer opt out of covering any medical treatment he disagreed with as a matter of his personal faith.
Note the story's use of masculine pronouns.

Maybe Obama did give them the inch upon which they'll demand a mile -- but only one candidate is going to be pressured to buy all that nonsense hook, line and "sinking".

Congratulations Willard -- if you make it that far, you get to argue in favor of denying vaccinations and surgery on an employer's religious grounds.

Sorry mittens, the economy is so fearful of you and the TeaRandBirchvangelicals getting your hands on the controls it has directed the invisible hand to make things right before the election.

Would this mean a Christian Scientist employer could deny all medical coverage whatsoever?
