Barack Obama’s Self-Obsessed Statement On Pope Benedict XVI Retirement

As world leaders go, none think so highly of themselves as does the always self-important Barack Obama.

Here is the official statement released by the White House on the impending retirement of the Pope:

 

“On behalf of Americans everywhere, Michelle and I wish to extend our appreciation and prayers to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years.   The Church plays a critical role in the United States and the world, and I wish the best to those who will soon gather to choose His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’s successor.”

How sad is it that Barack Obama deems it necessary to reference himself twice as much in the same short statement that should be dedicated entirely to the retirement of a man who (at least in part) represents over a billion Catholics throughout the world?  Three mentions of Pope Benedict XVI, and SIX mentions of Barack Obama.

It is no secret relations between the Obama administration and the Catholic Church have been tepid at best.  Pope Benedict XVI has been increasingly opposed to the gay rights agenda, abortion, as well as the Pope’s willingness to call out the more dangerous and inhumane aspects of radicalized Islam, something Barack Obama remains hesitant to do himself…

      Barry isn’t just hesitant about calling out radical Islam. Barry is THE enabler. First Egypt, then Libya, now Syria. He’s their banker and arms merchant. That’s messed up but true.

    • This does seem to confirm everything I mentioned, doesn’t it?

      Barry Obama–
      “Today, the [al Qaeda] that attacked us on 9/11 is a shadow of its former self. It’s true, different al Qaeda affiliates and extremist groups have emerged — from the Arabian Peninsula to Africa. The threat these groups pose is evolving. But to meet this threat, we don’t need to send tens of thousands of our sons and daughters abroad or occupy other nations. Instead, we’ll need to help countries like Yemen, and Libya, and Somalia provide for their own security, and help allies who take the fight to terrorists, as we have in Mali. And where necessary, through a range of capabilities, we will continue to take direct action against those terrorists who pose the gravest threat to Americans.”

      Nope, instead what we do is arm the Muslim Brotherhood narcos, and drone their enemies to death.

      Plain for all to see. Barry’s Iran-Contra to the nth degree, and the media don’t give a damn. Scandal!!!
