I was thinking the same thing. He seems utterly clueless about most things and how they might be taken by other people (who aren't dedicated lefties).
He is basically mocking something that Catholics have a spiritual connection to; and, I'm just not sure he understands that. But, if he doesn't, why doesn't someone in his staff let him know that what he just did was offensive to some of his fellow citizens.
I think Peggy Noonan wrote an article about Zero and how he is an "alien"; meaning, someone who just doesn't get America. He is not American, in the sense that most people think of themselves as American and understand our traditions. He is a foreigner, and the fact that we elected (and then re-elected!) someone who just doesn't understand the country or the people he is supposed to be representing to the world, just astounds me.
Obama: we can count on you to be an ass again.
If he wanted to do something “Catholic” why not wave a medal of St. Francis or something in THAT vein. What an ass. Christ did not die for literal turkeys.
I think he and his staff just don't care.
We saw that evident in his Burma visit, when he manhandled Aung San Suu Kyi and repeatedly called the country Myanmnar.
