Here is spokesassman for the Obama regime who speaks only what he is told to speak.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney clarified President Obama’s position on the contraception mandate for employer provided insurance.
“We need to make sure that those employees of all different faiths have access to contraception,” Carney said, insisting that President Obama “struck the right balance” in his decision.
“We obviously believe this is constitutional,” said Carney, adding that President Obama’s decision was to ensure that, “women who want access to contraceptives are able to get them without paying co-pay every time they go to a pharmacy.”
Carney added that President Obama was not going to consider rescinding the mandate in spite of an uproar from leaders in the Catholic Church and other religious organizations.
“This is not a decision of politics,” Carney stated. “This provides an important preventive service for people around the country and is not in any way a violation of the conscience clause.”

Via Daily Caller:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has attributed the nation’s sluggish economy to the “failed” policies of President George W. Bush. The Daily Caller asked Pelosi whether or not she, President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should take “ownership” of the current state of the economy.
“President Obama was a job creator by, on day one. I’ve probably said this to you before but just in case I think it bears repeating, a job creator from day one. In his inaugural address, he called for swift, bold action now; and one week and one day after his speech, the House of Representatives passed the economic Recovery Act, which even the CBO says has saved or created over 3 million jobs,” Pelosi responded Thursday at the Capitol.
“We are in a very, very deep hole and that’s what we have to come out of. It’s not cyclical. It’s systemic. It’s structural, it’s very big and that’s why it was really important for us to have more job creation but as you know, once we didn’t have the 60th vote in the Senate, that was hard to do, even with the Democratic majority in the House and now of course, with the Republican majority in the House, [there's] no job agenda.”
