    Both Obama and McCain were for TARP although mail was 75% plus against.
    Most americans are against abortion, at least any time for any reason.

    So what? Elect whomever, and they will ‘grow in office’, often before the last guest has left the Inaugural ball. Is GITMO closed? Did his predecessor prevent the death of Terri schaivo? Oh, and his apointees joined into the decision where corporations are persons. Unlike the unborn.

    Mubarak won by 95% in his elections. Saddam did too. The USSR had elections.

    (Though democracy is mob rule and onlt one step up from tyranny)

    Many of those killed by their countrymen or our gunshis had purple fingers.

    Most don’t bother voting. They realize the futility. Both are the airport-rape party. Both are the indefinite detention of innocents party. Both are the wall-st. Big pharma (medicare part d), big media (mickey mouse copyright), big useless cold war weapons party. Both are the war whore party. And both don’t tolerate a third voice.

    The 98.6 are defeated by the cold blooded levithan.

    I guess the children weren’t really what was important to the Catholic Charities foster and adoption agencies after all. It’s more about grinding their political axe against gay rights. As a Catholic, I apologize to all the children that we hurt by refusing to put them first. I’m glad the state has already found other adoption agencies that are willing to provide the services to find these thousands of orphaned and foster children safe homes with loving families.

    1. Whitney says:

      We ARE putting the children first… by keeping them as far from gays as possible. The children would be better off as perpetual orphans than to be raised by a “couple” of the same gender. “As a Catholic…” no, Catholicism is incompatible with your liberal views. You are not truly a member of our faith.

    2. Bruce says:

      Children have a right to a father and a mother. Jamie supports discriminating against the rights of children. Also, you’re not Catholic if you believe that a man can do everything that a mother can, and a woman can do everything that a man can. Actually, not only does that make you not Catholic, it makes you just plain silly and irrational.
