Who to Believe, Barry or Il Papa?
Who has a history of lies?
Check it out:
So we have Il Papa hosting the president. Still not convinced that the president thought he was going on vacation. When they rolled up to the Vatican he said to the Secret Service (impersonation), “Where are we?” They said: “We’re at the Vatican, sir.”
“Oh, I thought it said ‘vacation.’ Oh. All right. Well, let’s go in.”
And there are two versions of what happened in the meeting between Il Papa and Obama. Of course now we’re forced to have to make a choice as to who we believe. Obama says that he and the pope talked about — it’s just a coincidence — things that Obama talks about: income inequality, contraception. The Vatican says that the pope kind of took Obama to school on the social issues and gave him some homework reading assignments. That’s right.
There are two distinct, different versions of the meeting between the president and the pope. And as Dr. Krauthammer pointed out (paraphrasing), “Well, here we go, what do we have here? We’ve got a man who is the spiritual leader of a billion people who believes he is infallible versus a man who said, ‘If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ Who we gonna believe?” It kind of comes down to the pope, when you put it that way. (interruption) Well, no. No, the bloom is off the Messiah rose. I don’t think there’s anybody, well somebody, but, I mean, the number of people that think Obama’s still this Messianic figure, that’s all by the wayside.
