Guilty: Obama's Catholic Voters

Andy McCarthy:

"What I personally find most offensive about the HHS mandate is the shock with which it has been met. Why? This is who Barack Obama is. There is no reason to be surprised by this. He is not being pulled to extremes by his base — he is the one doing the pulling.

McCarthy then gives the reason that I for one, will never even watch that monster speak, or read anything he has written, let alone do anything so insane as trust him on any issue at all:

Obama’s abortion extremism is such that, as a state legislator, he opposed protection for — I’ll use his words here — 'that fetus, or child — however way you want to say describe it' when, contrary to the wishes of the women involved and their abortionists, there was 'movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.' Babies were inconveniently being born alive, self-styled health-care providers carted them off to utility rooms where they would be left to die. That is infanticide, plain and simple. In Illinois, people tried to stop this barbarism by supporting 'born alive' legislation. Barack Obama fought them all the way....

McCarthy points out that this was completely common knowledge at the time of the 2008 election:

Again, this is not new news. The transcript is from ten years ago. He has done nothing since but confirm — by his positions, speeches, associations, and presidential appointments — that he is still exactly the same guy. Obama’s horrifying stance in favor not only of abortion but of infanticide was known when 54 percent of Catholics and 53 percent of Protestants supported him for election in 2008, and when such leading Catholic institutions as Notre Dame and Georgetown welcomed him with open arms.

That's Jenkins, that's Kmiec, that's Michael Sean Winters, that's Sr. Carol Keehan, that's the whole sick crew. Now they object, apparently when it involves them personally, but when that monster was voting to leave babies to die, no problem.

That is what we ought to find shocking. Obama, by contrast, should no longer shock anyone. Obama is simply doing what he came to do; what he said he was going to do when he promised to 'fundamentally transform the United States'; and what anyone with a shred of common sense would have predicted he’d do upon scrutinizing his record."

As a Catholic, I had the same problem with President Bush, who started two wars and killed thousands of innocent women and children (born and unborn). Clinton was not much better, nor Bush 41. I guess that's why presidents are political, not religious, figures. Also why we often feel so let down by them.
While I applaud the liveliness of the Catholic right on the HHS issue, I am curious to know if the same level of uproar was raised over Bush's various forays into murder and mayhem. I have to assume that the bishops went nuts denouncing the Iraq War and the torture involved, both of which were soundly denounced by JPII. Is this true? Were they denouncing the war loudly from the pulpits? Or are the bishops just playing politics because they hate Obama?
