The Washington Times reports that the Vatican has “rejected at least three of President Obama’s candidates to serve as U.S. ambassador to the Holy See” because of their pro-abortion stances.
If our Dear Leader hopes to meet Pope Benedict XVI in July, he should have a ambassador in place first. I’m sure the White House would never dream of sending a staunch anti-Communist to meet with the Communist Dictators of Cuba, so this must be some sort of logistical issue. It is likely that in the highly diverse and tolerant liberal democrat administration, there isn’t one person of significant rank (and for an ambassador, that includes anyone who donated a big pile of money during the campaign) who supports the Pro-Life agenda.
Update: Team Obama continues its foreign policy record of Epic Fail by attempting to make one of his campaign supporters, who is also strongly pro-abortion, to the post of Ambassador to the Vatican. In this case, it’s Princess Caroline of the democrat political Kennedy dynasty. Does the President also plan on attempting to give the Pope a wedgie when they meet?
Of course, the Vatican has rejected this attempt as well. Bill Clinton was experienced and smart enough not to drop the ball on a simple diplomatic appointment like this one. He picked the former Mayor of Boston, democrat and a more observant Roman Catholic than Princess Caroline, whom the Vatican had no problems accepting as the Ambassador of the United States of America.
It seems that a simple task of finding a Pro-Life democrat to appoint to this post is beyond the skill set of Team Lightbringer. The other explanation I put forward may be true. It’s not a simple task, because the “highly diverse and tolerant liberal democrat administration” of our Dear Leader doesn’t include a single democrat who supports a Pro-Life agenda and nobody in their circle of friends/co-workers is a democrat who supports a Pro-Life agenda.
So much for that “big tent” diversity thing. It appears that this simple level of diversity is not part of “Hope & Change.”
