Time Machines And Religious Liberty - President Obama 's Own Words Indict Him ( HHS Mandate )

"This contraception fight in particular was illuminating. It was like being in a time machine. Republicans in Congress were going so far as to say an employer should be able to have a say in the health care decisions of its female employees. You know, for a party that prides itself on being rabidly anti-regulations of almost any kind, for folks who claim to believe in freedom from government interference and meddling, it doesn’t seem to bother them when it comes to a woman’s health."

As to Robert George says  in part at Mirrors of Justice :

..I hope that the President is being misquoted here. If he actually said these words---if, in other words, this is how he chooses to characterize the serious religious liberty concerns of Catholics, joined by Protestants, Jews, Muslims, and others who criticize the HHS mandate---then there is, it seems to me, no way around the conclusion that his statements, especially those at Notre Dame, about the need for "open hearts," "open minds," and "fairminded words" were utterly disingenuous....

Read it all at  Fairminded words?
