It's been amazing to watch White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dutifully take the podium day after day and deny that Obama has created a problem for himself by forcing Catholic individuals and institutions to subsidize abortifacient drugs, sterilizations and contraception.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online/NEWS CONSORTIUM) - Let me break it down for the Mr. President:

When over 90% of Catholic bishops have condemned your decision and promised not to obey it - you've got a problem.

When it's not just Catholic faith leaders who have condemned your decision and promised not to obey it - you've got a problem.

When "CHURCH VOWS WAR ON OBAMA" is the top headline on Drudge - you've got a problem:

When about every news outlet (with the exception of some left-wing and mainstream cable news outlets) are saying the same thing as Drudge - you've got a problem.

When your top liberal Catholic apologist, Doug Kmiec, withdraws his support of you - you've got a problem.

When, for that matter, practically every notable Catholic who has ever supported you withdraws their support of you - you've got a problem.

When your talking points are being picked apart as fast as you can re-issue them - you've got a problem.

When barely anyone even bothers with responding to your talking points - you've got a problem.

When the Catholic nun who helped you pass Obamacare tells you this needs to be fixed - you've got a problem.

When 154 members of the U.S. House of Representatives send a letter to your administration warning it to reverse course - you've got a problem.

When you've got U.S. Senators practically tripping over themselves to have the first bill up for a vote to reverse your decision - you've got a problem.

And when Vice President Joe Biden realizes there's nothing he can say to excuse this decision - then, Mr. President, you've really got a problem.

.. or, you know, maybe you're right. Maybe there's no problem here.

So how about we just wait until November and see what happens then?
