New Romney Ad Accuses President Obama Of 'Declaring War On Religion'

Willard's new ad begins,

President Obama used his health care plan to declare war on religion, forcing religious institutions to go against their faith.

Or, put another way, "President Obama's health care plan requires religious institutions that run secular businesses which employ and provide health insurance to lots of people who don't practice said religion to comply with federal regulations."

But "War on Religion" is much snappier!

Anyway, this ad is clearly targeting Catholics, with the little Lech Walesa/John Paul II pander at the end.

But wingnuts should be outraged that Willard credits Pope John Paul II's words ("Be not afraid,") for the destruction of the Soviet Union. After all, we've been told for years that after hearing Ronald Reagan say "Tear down this wall!" the Soviet Union's leaders realized in an instant that communism was an unworkable system and they just gave up on the spot.
