The Democrats, aided by the network news and the usual liberal cable news outlets like CNN and MSNBC, know they can't let the upcoming election be focused on Obama's failed economy. To their credit, they've managed to turn the topic of discussion on to social issues. Everyone was astonished when Obama declared that religion-based insurers would be forced to cover abortions and birth control under ObamaCare. Religious leaders were outraged. They were equally surprised when he did a quick pseudo walk-back, and decreed that birth control would be provided free of charge.
Besides the Constitutional issues surrounding Obama's dictator impersonation, this was unsatisfactory for religious leaders on the grounds of freedom of religion, and they publicly stated as much. The very next day, viola'! We have a new bully in town and the Democrats have a new straw man to fight. Democrats (which includes ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.) immediately began pushing the narrative that 'Republicans are against birth control!'.
I have been saying the Democrats needed a new slogan, something besides 'Republicans want to take your Social Security!', and we now have it. To a liberal, being opposed to offering something for free is akin to being opposed to that thing's existence.
To the casual observer, it'll be "something about Republicans fighting against birth control". Poor Mrs. Smith, the soccer mom, will dutifully vote for Obama even though she knows his economy sucks. That's their plan, anyway. I'm confident that it will not be enough to save Obama's failed Carter-era Keynesian nightmare. Elections are almost always centered on the economy, (the exception is when we're in a major war) and with a poor economy, Obama is doomed.
