How to respond to Obama Trauma!

Every time I think I'm recovering from Obama Trauma, the news gets worse!
The appointees Obama is naming are the Who's Who of the abortion industry, from Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute professor Alta Charo, to CINO(Catholic in Name Only) Tom Daschle's being tapped for the position of Health and Human Services Secretary in the new cabinet, to this gloomy bit of info from the Cardinal Newman Society.
Several outspoken professors and political activities on Catholic campuses helped deliver pro-abortion Barack Obama the Catholic vote, according to a new report from The Cardinal Newman Society.
Exit polls show that Obama won over self-described Catholics 54 to 45 percent—better than the 52-46 split among all Americans—and even made inroads with Mass-attending and white, non-Hispanic Catholics.
Not surprising, I argued against it in my piece at Catholic Exchange, but these professors have the students as captive audiences. When I tried to frame our debate in my eighth grade US History class in term of life issues, which of course meant that Obama lost handily, I took some fierce flack from parents and students alike.This was in a conservative Catholic school.

Catholics don't want to hear the truth; they shut their ears and their hearts.
So the most pro-abortion politician in the history of the USA gets elected with our help. The bishops threaten a war over life issues, but I can't help remembering poor Fr. Newman being forced to retract his bold statement about voting for Obama and hand my head in shame.
An abomination!
Here, folks are our marching orders from Our Lady of Victory.. .

This is all so sad...I can't believe that the Catholic vote was WORSE than the general population..this is shocking. So many were vocal, I remember what Carl Anderson said, that Catholic vote could sway the course of the elections, we had that power and look what happened.

Evangelicals are the future of the pro-life movement.

This country knows full well the difference between the Catholic charlatans and the true Catholics--they despise the true Catholics.

I will never apologize for being Catholic, nor will I compromise my faith for an extremist president.

Because even presidents die and have to answer to their maker.

The "Where's the Beef?" phrase for this era should be...Where's the CHANGE?!!

So much for reaching out in bi-partisan goodwill!

Looks like we got Hillary thrown into the mix as part of the bargain as well - too bad she wasn't the nominee - I never liked her but she is better than what we got. I'm so sorry you are getting this attitude from the parents at the school now as well.
