My Dear America:
This week provided more excitement in the Republican Primary Race for the Presidency. Mitt Romney narrowly won the race in Michigan and convincingly won the matchup with Rick Santorum in Arizona. Rick appealed to Democrats in Michigan and claimed that he had done well with Democrats, who were eligible to vote in that primary.
This week also Mitt was apparently asked about what is being called the Blount Rubio Bill in Congress that would not only allow employers to deny Abortion and Contraception to their employee's under what the Republicans love to call Obamacare. Employers under this bill would have carte blanche to take away any part of health care they are required to provide that they do not agree with in principle. Mitt was asked about his support for the bill and initially stated that he did not support the bill, although after his Republican Right Wing Base let him have it on that issue he quickly changed his tune and got on board the Right Wing Express to complete control over Americian Women's Reproductive Rights.
Contraception was the issue that Rick Santorum was pounding away at prior to the Michigan and Arizona Primaries. He spoke about the limiting of contraception as though he had received messages from the Almighty that told him "NO ABORTION AND NO CONTRACEPTION." Rick was kind enough to let us all in on the Lord's prounouncements on Abortion and Contraception. It seems stunning to me, though, that God would be against contraception since that would be a reasonable way of keeping women from getting pregnant, which would, of course, eliminate the need for countless abortions. Rick's leadership over the Contraception and Abortion Cliff might be in jeopardy, however, unless God has some sort of miracle in store for Rick on Super Tuesday. I guess we will just have to see about that when Super Tuesday arrives.
At the present time, however, we will just have to be satisfied with our knowledge that in all things, even Republican Politics, God Truly does Work in Mysterious Ways.
