First the Vice President, a man whose political fortunes seem to be on the upswing as the Clinton campaign becomes even more deeply mired in scandal. Is Biden pondering the words of the Pope, words which in my opinion were both missing the target and forgetting the role that America has played in the world? Or was he planning his future campaign and what he would try to do to make things better for so many Americans who are deeply hurting after Obama's failed programs and promises?
And Speaker Boehner, why is he crying? Is he buying the climate change mumbo jumbo and figuring out how he can force his caucus to push it through or is he wondering why the Pope has chosen to emphasize that program which is losing public support? Or maybe is he just crying because he had a few "belts" before entering the Chamber and then becoming melancholic as so many who drink routinely do?
And what about the Pope himself? Does he truly believe that America has provided insufficient aid to those in need around the world and that America should open her borders to all comers, no matter how many, where from and what their intentions? In his mind is Climate Change truly the big issue of our time instead of the slaughter of Christians which he only mentioned in passing?
As you can see, I have many more questions than answers and I truly think Pope Francis missed a golden opportunity to connect with Americans, Catholic, Protestant and others alike, when he criticized the nation that has saved the earth in two world wars and has taken in more immigrants than the other nations of the world combined. I find it detestable that he didn't thank America, instead of leveling criticism while pushing a socialist agenda that most good Americans find inappropriate. Frankly, his speech sounded to me as if it could have been written by one of Obama's delusional speech writers. Wealth redistribution, climate change and immigration advocacy are issues which really are not what America needed to hear from the Pope, but I am sure that Obama will try to use his remarks to push even harder for his absurd agenda that will only further the destruction of the United States.
If I have offended anyone by these remarks I am deeply sorry, but I felt as if they had to be made. I feel no guilt for being an American and I am proud of what this great country has done. And since we are still a sovereign state and a free one at that, although sometimes I worry for how long, I will say what's on my mind when I feel it to be appropriate. I wish the Pope well and a safe trip home when his visit is done, but I truly feel he has done America a great disservice. After all, he mentioned nothing about the abuse and horror of Cuba when in that country, yet he turns his animosity toward the greatest nation on earth, and that is truly unfortunate. Perhaps it comes from his growing up in socialist Argentina, a nation which used to be rich and prosperous before the Peronistas came to the fore. But I hope that he hasn't bought the hype from Obama hook, line and sinker.
God help and bless America and may she ever be free.
