After a stinging rebuke by European Leaders to further punish Vladimir Putin, with his tail between his legs the President heads the the Vatican for a photo-op with Pope Francis in hope of drumming up the Catholic vote for mid-term elections.
Vatican City (AFP) - "Barack Obama will meet Pope Francis for the first time Thursday for talks on a shared agenda to fight inequality which the US President hopes will help boost support at home. The talks between the first Latin-American pope and first African-American US president will focus on tackling the gap between the rich and the poor, but are likely to spill over into thornier issues such as abortion, homosexuals and contraception.
Obama is "mostly going I think to bask in the glow of the new Pope," said Jeremy Shapiro, visiting fellow at Washington's Brookings institute.
Obama said he was "hugely impressed" by Francis's inclusive approach after the pope called for the Church to stop obsessing debating teachings on abortion, homosexuals and contraception. However, Vatican experts say the relationship is not as cozy as it once was between pope Jean Paul II and Ronald Reagan, and Francis is unlikely to refrain from tackling Obama on his domestic and foreign policy.
Religious expert John Allen told Vatican Radio Obama will be fishing for Catholic votes to help him keep a hold on the Senate."(Source)
When is Hussein going to meet with Allah?
No fake Catholic who voted for him cares either.
I agree with the Pope ... This is a shakedown stop. The one will either be asking for money or sainthood or both. Probably both.
What’s the difference between Pope Francis at prayer and Barry at a bathhouse?
while is wife travels around the world and vacations lavishly on our dime..
I am sorry the Pope is letting himself be used for a Photo-Op. I wish the Pope would call him out in Public on the IRS targetting religious groups, and HHS targetting the Little Sisters of the Poor.
The Pope better take his bible, holy cross, rosary beads, holy water, and fellow priests with him to the exorcism...
One sinner to another, eh? Of course, islamists pray to the moon dog...uh, god.
I don’t believe there is a “Saint Bo” yet, is there?
I hope it is done in public out in the square; the exorcism.
The pope is already too social justice redistributionist.
God help us if any more of that crap rubs off from barry.
The “possessed” must desire to be set free - no way BHO is going to cut the ties with what which has empowered him to rise from obscurity to the office of POTUS.
BO, the dog, should be granted Sainthood. Lord only knows what BO is truly feeling. BO I'm certain has heard the rumors of obama's dog eating days.
Cue the ‘who am I to judge’ response. I expect the final shove from government ruled by liberals, to be their finale, punish, I mean tax the rich and gracing illegals with more rights than American citizens. After all Obama did give Rome its demand for universal healthcare.
Reality is what it is.
This meeting has “omen magnet” written all over it.
What will it be... doves dropping dead in St. Peter’s Square, the Tiber drying up, the ceiling collapsing in the Sistine Chapel, what?
Then Obama will be off to visit the Saudis.
The U.S. had Universal Health Care and has had it for several decades at least. The fact is Insurance is not health care. Anybody can go to a hospital and be treated in this country. The Bitch Obama ought to know that his wife was head of the department that shuffled people without insurance out of her Chicago hospital and into the welfare hospital. She was paid over $300K a year to do the job.
