Is President Obama really going headstrong with this attack on the Catholic Church in an election year?
Or in the summer (remember, the mandatory stuff doesn't kick in until 2013) does he ask for a sitdown with some Bishops, graciously agree to exempt the Church from having to pay for the morally illicit items, and come out looking like a "friend" to Catholics?
Does this get him a photo-op surrounded by Catholic hierarchy where everyone is smiling and shaking hands? Does this get some Catholics to think "He's not so bad" just weeks before re-election? Do they get all sentimental about why they voted for him back in '08?
