    Who can be surprised?

    B. Hussein Obama have never shown any class.

    It’s wonder he’s house broken.

      Are you sure that he is?

    And the Obama Administration thinks that Benjamin Netanyahu had bad manners for accepting an invitation to speak to a joint session of Congress without informing the White House first.

    Oy vey!

      You forget that the Pope is a Catholic. Open season all year long.

    I wonder if the invitees will pontificate to the Pope.

    Why not schedule a good old-fashioned Tijuana donkey show for the pope? We are in the process of turning (or returning) portions of our country into Mexico again anyway, so why not celebrate such a legendary example of south of the border culture for the pope’s viewing pleasure while we’re at it? This is how FAR we’d have to go to satirize what our current administration is doing…

    Everybody at the Vatican except this pope will be offended.

    WRM’s Childish Dig At Obama

    It is hardly any surprise that those who love darkness would spit at the light.

    The collapse of Christianity does not bode well for the future of western civilization, and I speak as one who is not a Christian and not even religious.

    The lights are going out in the west. We will not see them lit again in our lifetimes.

    Let’s hope Pope Francis handles the situation as well as Mother Teresa handled the national prayer breakfast.

    POUTUS’ way of saying, WH can do what we’re furious at Bibi for doing: not consulting before deciding (even if Bibi did). Kids have been running the show for a while now. Ben Rhodes in the lead.

    Not a big surprise though is it? Juxtapose this with how Cuban dissidents were pointedly not invited to the US embassy in Cuba.

    Tells you everything you need to know about Obama specifically and the current American “Left” generally. And what it tells you is not pretty.
