Flowchart: "Can I Get Pregnant?"

Learn the biology of your body, according to conservative male lawmakers.

Remember the birds and the bees? The miracle of birth? Forget everything you knew. Turns out there's a lot more to birthin' babies than you might have learned in your godless socialist public-school health class. From this weekend's assertion by Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) that women can't conceive babies during a "legitimate rape" to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) saying Monday that he didn't know of any pregnancies caused by incest or statutory rape, conservative male lawmakers targeting reproductive rights have always held, shall we say, minority views on the biology of all things uterine.

Did you know about women's natural stress-induced spermicides? Have you ever seen "God's little protective shield" in a vagina? That's because they don't exist—but these legislators don't know that.

If you're of the double-X persuasion, all of this might leave you a bit flummoxed as to whether you'll conceive. Well, don't worry your pretty little head about it: We've collected the basics of reproductive biology according to conservative politicians, in a handy flowchart format. Need to determine your uterus' destiny? Just ask these men!

The Romney-Ryan proposal to reshape Medicare by giving future beneficiaries fixed amounts of money to buy health coverage is deeply unpopular in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin, according to new polls that found that more likely voters in each state trust President Obama to handle Medicare.

'What — me work?

President Obama’s “SURPRISE” press conference Monday was supposed to prove that the man leading the country at a time of considerable distress is firmly in charge, even as he spends much of his time fighting for re-election. Don’t buy it.

It’s been TWO MONTHS since the president spoke to the media, and not because there aren’t big issues at hand: an economy that continues to stumble, high unemployment and energy prices, global unrest ...

The president SHOULD have his hands full. Yet even before his reelection campaign kicked into high gear, there was mounting evidence that Obama may love to give speeches, think deep thoughts and hammer his opponents, but he hates the nitty-gritty of governing.

In fact, based on much of the evidence over the past three-plus years, it’s hard to think of another recent president who cares less about the actual job of running the country.

OK, getting bogged down in minute details is something the leader of a great nation (and the Free World) should avoid. One of Jimmy Carter’s many negatives was said to be his insistence on being in the middle of every decision, including setting the schedule of the White House tennis court.

President Reagan was known as a delegator, but even after being shot during his first term he continued his relentless pursuit of an ambitious agenda that involved massive changes to the economy, including tax cuts and deregulation that spurred years of economic growth and a military buildup that brought the Soviet Union to its knees.

And I don’t think anyone would accuse either Bill Clinton or George W. Bush of not being engaged.

Contrast that with Obama: A brilliant orator, an articulate spokesman for left-wing policies and a relentless campaigner — but not a president who takes his day-to-day responsibilities very seriously.

How do I know this? Well, that’s the word from people who know him, including many long-time Democrats. Not all may be ready to jump ship and vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (though some, like the head of his Jobs Council, GE CEO JEFFREY IMELT, clearly are). But they are coming to the conclusion that, for all the president’s positives, he has a blind spot when it comes to his core executive duties.

OBAMA SKIPS CORE EXECUTIVE DUTIES

Exhibit A: his hastily crafted “stimulus program,” where nearly $1 trillion in taxpayer money was spent with little direction from the president.

“The stimulus package failed because it was all over the map. It was not a targeted, clear jobs-creation program,” Arianna Huffington, the creator of The Huffington Post, told me during an online debate.

Others are less charitable; one big reason they say the stimulus plan was such a flop (unemployment was supposed to be around 5 percent by now, not above 8 percent) is that Obama didn’t care how it was carried out and let Congress, namely then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, handle details.

Thus, many of the shovel-ready jobs the stimulus plan was to create never materialized.

Money was handed to states to keep their government large or used to seed boondoggles like the failed Solyndra solar-panel company.

Indeed, go down the line — from the Dodd Frank financial reform to even ObamaCare, the president’s “signature” legislative achievement — and you will find they’re all products of a chief executive who chose to sit out the hard work. The result: INCOHERENT AND HARMFUL new laws.

Big banks still don’t know many of the final rules of Dodd Frank, more than two years after Obama signed it into law — because it is so unwieldy. As for ObamaCare, Pelosi once said Congress has to “pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Yet even now, most people in Congress, the medical community and likely even Obama himself can’t tell you what’s really in it.

WHO ARE OBAMA’S ADVISERS?

The root cause of the Obama governing malaise can be found in his core group of advisers. Former Democratic lawmakers say he rarely meets with seasoned hands of the Democratic Party, much less the opposition, to get stuff done.

He hasn’t met with his so-called Jobs Council — a group of CEOs who advise the president on the economy — for most of this year, despite the lousy economy. When he did, the conversations, I’m told, were lame — A MAJOR REASON IMMELT TELLS FRIENDS HE'S GOING TO VOTE FOR ROMNEY, despite the perks GE got from this administration.

Instead, OBAMA RELIES ON POLITICAL HACKS AND CRONIES FROM HIS DAYS IN CHICAGO, INCLUDING WHITE HOUSE ADVISER VALERIE JARRETT —
PEOPLE WHO HAVE LITTLE GOVERNING EXPERIENCE, PARTICULARLY IN THE NATIONAL ARENA —
WHILE HE FARMS OUT THE REST OF HIS AGENDA TO HIS PALS IN CONGRESS.

Four years ago, President Obama sold himself as someone who would be tirelessly working for the American people. Yet he hardly looks tired on the campaign trail — and now you know why.

The GOP Had the Todd Akin ‘Legitimate Rape’ Debacle Coming

The average American, courtesy of Todd Akin, is now learning that banning abortion for rape or incest victims is an official GOP platform. But it was only a matter of time before voters learned how extreme the party has become—and now Romney must deal with the fallout.

....if Akin stays in, but to some extent even if he leaves, he helps turn this election from an economic referendum on Barack Obama to a cultural referendum on the Troglocons.

Rarely is the door flung open for the rest of us as it has been by Akin to the kind of mystical and reactionary drool that passes for theology on today’s right. The average American, if she’s paying even a little attention this week, is learning that it is not merely the case that Republicans oppose abortion rights as a general matter. She is grasping, and probably for the first time, even though it’s been official GOP doctrine for years, that the party wants victims of incest and rape to be forced to carry those fetuses to term. She is learning that many in the party and the movement seem to think, astonishingly, that there is truly bad rape and rape that really isn’t such an imposition.

And if she’s paying a bit more than casual attention, she is figuring out that Akin is not some crazy outlier but indeed a comrade in arms of the party’s vice-presidential nominee. She’ll have read about the bill Akin and Ryan gleefully helped sponsor that made the rape distinction. And if the Democrats and the women’s groups do their jobs as they should in the coming days and weeks, she may be left to ponder that the man who’ll be a heartbeat away from the presidency once implied that women could be jailed for getting abortions.“If it’s illegal, it’s illegal” is how Ryan described the appropriate punishment for women who receive abortions in states that would make the practice illegal in Ryan’s dream world. The line richly deserves to enter the public lexicon, in the manner of “read my lips” and “I did not have sex with that woman.”
