I don't think anyone will be surprised to read that Newsweek is in the tank for Obama. The cover of the magazine is now become a collectors series of Obama poses. This is embarrassing though.
Without a Doubt
Why Barack Obama represents American Catholics better than the pope does.
Tomorrow Pope Benedict XVI and President Barack Obama meet for the first time, an affair much anticipated and in some circles frowned upon by American Catholics in the wake of Obama's controversial Notre Dame commencement speech in May. Conservatives in the church denounced Obama's appearance as a nod by the premier Catholic university to a conciliatory politics that heralds the start of a slippery moral slope.
In truth, though, Obama's pragmatic approach to divisive policy (his notion that we should acknowledge the good faith underlying opposing viewpoints) and his social-justice agenda reflect the views of American Catholic laity much more closely than those vocal bishops and pro-life activists. When Obama meets the pope tomorrow, they'll politely disagree about reproductive freedoms and homosexuality, but Catholics back home won't care, because they know Obama's on their side. In fact, Obama's agenda is closer to their views than even the pope's.
This man is so amazing that he is now more Catholic than the Pope himself.
Actually this is the first of a series. Soon to follow are:
Obama, More Gay Than Perez Hilton
Obama, More Of A Woman Than Megan Fox
Obama, More Of An Idiot Than Joe Biden
Okay, the last one was made up (just having a little fun).
What is best about this is that the far left media has been swooning whenever Obama makes a pronouncement like "America is just another country, we can't set ourselves up as the standard for the world". Yet they are willing to let American Catholics set the standard for Catholicism for the world, including the Vatican. This in spite of the fact that the US only has about 6% of the world's population of Catholics and is the 72nd most Catholic country in the world (based on percentage).
What I think is awe-inspiring is how Obama is going to lead Catholics out of the wilderness after they have spent the better part of 2,000 years wandering aimlessly.
He's such a guy.
Gotta go, getting that little tingle down my leg again.
