The president is great at saying what he thinks people want to hear, but look behind his back. His fingers are crossed. We could call him the great pretender. Cardinal Francis George got it right when he met with the president last March and told Catholic News Service, "It's hard to disagree with him because he'll always tell you he agrees with you. Maybe that's political. I think he sincerely wants to agree with you. You have to say, again and again, 'No, Mr. President, we don't agree (on abortion)....He said we weren't exporting abortion. I said, 'Yes we are. He would say, 'I know I have to do certain things here. ... But be patient and you'll see the pattern will change.' I said, 'Mr. President, you've given us nothing but the wrong signals on this issue.' So, we'll see, but I'm not as hopeful now as I was when he was first elected."
As Cardinal George's experience indicates, President Obama is either a liar or incompetent. To say that the U.S. isn't exporting abortion when one of his first acts was to dump the Mexico City Policy banning funding abortion through our foreign policy is irresponsible. The president demonstrates over and over that he and the truth are strangers to each other. So when he says he doesn't want a government health care system don't believe it. Pray for him, but don't trust him.
