    WASHINGTON — For the White House, the decision announced Friday to soften a rule requiring religious-affiliated organizations to pay for insurance plans that offer free birth control was never really driven by a desire to mollify Roman Catholic bishops, who were strongly opposed to the plan.

    Wait til they figure out that the only thing that changed was the rhetoric. Whoever pays for the policy WILL be paying for the contraceptive care.

    He's right. It wasn't Catholics....well, not just the Catholics - it was them pesky Christians! And them pesky Jews... and the Muslims. Damn them all for coming together to bully poor baby O.

    They like the sound of that word "cave" because that is all the wingnuts have been doing for months now.

    It's an election year. I think he is just playing politics. Playing to his base and women's interests, then softening his stance to appeal to Catholics (I listened to you and your voice was heard).
