Media ignores Obama’s failing focus on liberal social issues (like the new campaign video featuring Planned Parenthood CEO)

Here’s how it is for socially conservative Republican politicians.

If they broach the topic of abortion, liberals howl, “It’s the economy, stupid!” and proclaim them obsessed with divisive social issues.

And if they focus on fiscal issues, the media asks them questions about social issues and proclaim them obsessed anyway.

Now we have Barack Obama sinking in the polls only after making gay marriage, free contraception, and “choice” the centerpieces of his campaign, and the media doesn’t notice. It cannot be that a Democrat could possibly suffer politically by focusing on social issues. This narrative is reserved solely for Republicans.

Abortion pictures rile members of pro-choice church

Abortion pictures are not pleasant to view, particularly on one’s way to Sunday morning worship service at a pro-choice church.

For the past several weeks Todd Bullis has taken his Church Project to the Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano, Texas.

Showing the reality of abortion through abortion pictures, Todd and his team have made it their mission to educate church goers that the place where they worship condones this heinous act against God, in whose image we are made.

Obama: Social issues are “nonsense”

You know something about that in Virginia; the kinds of nonsense thatís been going on… But thatís all across the country…. When you have folks who are talking about not just constraining womenís reproductive health, but questioning things like contraception as part of our preventive care. ~ President Barack Obama, commenting at a “fundraiser jointly […]

Obama losing his woo on women

Spin can become so engrained people accept it without thinking.

The media promotes the liberal mantra that Republicans to their doom are focusing on “social issues,” ignoring the fact that right under their noses President Obama, the Democrats, and liberal feminists are pushing a new social issue – contraceptive access – in an unabashed attempt to woo women, and they’re the ones losing. There could be any number of reasons why the strategy isn’t working, but the fact is it isn’t working.

Two new polls are very encouraging, both conducted by the mainstream media.

Stanek Sunday funnies: “Contraception Deception” edition

As I wrote last week, liberals are adept at turning controversies they provoke into the fault of conservatives, most recently President Barack Obama’s contraceptive mandate. Some of their political cartoonists were particularly crude this week, beginning with Jeff Danziger at GoComics.com…  by Ted Rall at GoComics.com…

Life Links 2-21-12

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Clarke Forsythe and Mailee Smith discuss the link between abortion and suicide and a court to determine the fate of South Dakota’s informed consent law. William McGurn argues that Rick Santorum shouldn’t drop his social issues campaigning: Dropping the social issues is also not practical for another reason: […]

Why are Democrats never warned to back away from the abortion issue as “too controversial”?

A new Rasmussen poll affirms what Gallup last year called “the new normal.” Conducted March 7-8, the survey of 1,000 people found that 44% of Americans consider themselves pro-life while only 42% say they’re pro-choice. (13% are undecided.) The poll had many other positive findings, but here’s the one I’d like to discuss:

New Stanek WND.com column, “GOP establishment vs. tea party on abortion”

UPDATE 9/16 1:55p: SBA List just issued a press release that in conjunction with a few other organizations it has just delivered 20k signatures calling on the GOP leadership to include a “separate family values plank with a pro-life emphasis in the upcoming GOP legislative blueprint.” Excellent!
