David Gregory Grills Rick Santorum Over Social Issues On ‘Meet The Press’ (Video)

I am starting to wonder if the Obama Administration intentionally rolled the controversial health care mandate this close to the election to get people focused on that. If people are focused on the social issues, then they are not so focused on Obama’s disastrous economic record. The Liberal media is doing it’s best to help Obama out on this by attacking Republican Presidential candidates on the social issues. Here is David Gregory going after Rick Santorum on “Meet The Press”.

  1. We're falling for one of the oldest schemes in the Chicago political playbook.

    Step 1: Create a controversy by mandating something, anything, that will be abhorrent to one sector of the populous, in this case mandating that religious organizations and institutions pay for contraception through health insurance.

    Step 2: Set the stage for the controversy to be debated cloaked in a social issue format. Again, in this case, use off-the-wall questions to the Republican presidential hopefuls to make the issue seem to belong to the opposition.

    Step 3: Compromise with the offended sector and allow them to believe they have won a victory.

    Step 4: use the compromise to establish precedent for future mandates.

    With the possibility of the individual mandate being ruled unconstitutional, Obama desperately needs to build up some precedent that the government has the power to mandate that individuals can be forced to pay for items the government deems necessary. One of his biggest hurdles is that there is no precedent. The compromise to force the insurance companies to pay for contraception will go a long way to establishing that needed precedent.

    This is not a social issue. It is a constitutional limits issue.
