After plighting her troth to a superhero, a man who could solve all the world’s problems, one day Maureen Dowd woke up and discovered that her superhero was a cartoon.
If you are Maureen Dowd and you find yourself abandoned by the mirage you took to be a superhero you write a column. Dowd makes news today because she comes out and admits that she had been duped.
The great Obama, her superhero, was not who she thought he was. Worse yet, he was not who he thought he was.
There's more and it's quite the read.
As is what follows from Tim Shipe who confesses that at one time, he had bought into the charisma of Barack Hussein Obama but now believes Obama is working willfully to undermine the hierarchical Catholic Church:
I can see clearly now that President Obama has been very conscious of this war for control within the Church- and his choice of Vice President and HHS Secretary- Biden and Sebelius, respectively, was a conspicuous power move to set in place the acceptability of dissenting Catholic leaders and thought into the mainstream of American societal structures and popular imaginations. The fact that Obama “evolved” on Gay Marriage with help from his Catholic buddy Joe Biden, and his determination to mandate contraception as a must-have “medicine” through the offices of Catholic Kathleen Sebelius- all of this plays right into the larger goals of the Catholic Democratic party elite. There has been no such evolution in his comprehension and compassion for the thousands of unborn humans killed every day in abortions, and the threat to religious liberties is finely focused on the authority of Catholic Bishops and the official teachings of the Catholic Magisterium. I believe the Catholic Dems elite would like to re-make American Catholic Bishops in the image of the Anglican church in England- with Obama playing a kind of King Henry VIII role in forcing power transfers (counting on public/Catholic lay apathy).
My hope is that the rest of the country is waking from their stupor.
