"Many of these talking points..you have been hearing from the candidates lately..about women's health, contraception and about religion especially, it that also on the minds of voters.."

It is Obama supporters and his friends in the media that constantly harp on these subjects so they can distract from his awful economic record.

The administration and the media create these manufactured non-issues that distract from Obama's failed economic leadership and the media then faults the Republican candidates for addressing these issues.
A cute and dishonest trick that insults the intelligence of the voters.

We will be seeing a constant repetition of this deliberately distracting waltz on the deck of the Titanic that the media conducts and then blames the passengers and not the captain.
