Another issue that, curiously, can wait until after the election

Let's see, there was the debt ceiling debate and the Keystone pipeline decision, and now the White House is signaling they're going to hold off on the "free" contraception for Catholic groups for further review:
Basically, it was a thinly veiled attempt to punt the entire issue into 2013, thus allowing the president to continue his doublespeak on the issue — pretending that he is interested in protecting religious liberty with pronouncements about a forthcoming concession while the policies he actually implements go in exactly the opposite direction.
In other news, it's been over 1040 days since the Senate passed a budget.  That can wait, too.
