A Uniter Not A Divider

Obama has done what the Pope cannot, he has united Catholics. Most Catholics think Obama stinks as president. 59 percent of Catholics don’t approve of his job performance. Yup, the same Catholics who are responsible for Obama, now disapprove.
In what is the first major public measurement of the Catholic backlash Obama faces, a new Rasmussen poll finds 59 percent of Catholics don’t approve of his job performance. That poor standing with one of the major electoral constituencies that Obama needs this November may make it more difficult for him to win a second term.

“Catholics strongly disapprove of the job President Obama is doing as the debate continues over his administration’s new policy forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception they morally oppose,” notes pollster Scott Rasmussen in the new survey. “While the president’s overall job approval ratings have improved over the past couple of months, they have remained steady among Catholics.”

The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of likely Catholic voters nationwide at least somewhat disapprove of the president’s job performance, while 40% at least somewhat approve. But the passion’s on the side of those who don’t like the job he’s doing: 44% Strongly Disapprove versus 19% who Strongly Approve.

According to the survey, 54 percent of Catholics voted for Obama in November 2008. However, Republican hopeful Mitt Romney currently leads the president among Catholic voters by a 52% to 35% margin. Among all voters, however, President Obama leads Romney and all Republican hopefuls.
It seems Obama is a uniter not a divider after all.


  1. Santorum is a uniter! He'll get rid of DADT, SSM, working women, Birth control. He has my Michigan vote Feb 28th!

    First official act, Jan 22, 2013. Call Google.

  2. Remember the Health Care Tax Credit churches could get which started in 2010? Obama sponsored that one. Non-Catholics paid taxes to help Catholics pay for health care, regardless of whether they support Catholic activities or not. Now that it is time for Catholics to give back a little bit by supporting others, irregardless of whether it is for a Catholic activity, or not, we turn into people who will take support but refuse to give it.

  3. Archangel:

    I guess we Catholics have been selfish by not offering food, clothing, shelter, medical care, spiritual support, post-abortion counseling, rent money, prayer or friendship to anybody else but Catholics since Pentecost. I guess we owe the world some support for immoral activity now.

    And "irregardless?" Ouch.

    BTW, you're not a fallen archangel, are you?

  4. Archangel: To violate the will of God in procreation and "nature and nature's God" is not the purpose of government constituted by the unalienable rights infused into the immortal soul of the sovereign person when two become one. Violating the will of God violates the will of the people. If you do not believe in God, God, who is existence, and believe that your unalienable rights come from the state, then you believe that the state gave you life, while murdering 54,000,000 other human beings with rational immortal souls. The First Amendment is to guarantee that your 54,000,000 brothers and sisters, our constitutional posterity may live and breathe and peaceably assemble. Your rationale also begets the question: Why would the state give life and unalienable rights and freedom to a human being and then allow another person to kill him?
