Francis Caedinal George is not a fan of barry’s politics. barry of course doesn’t like that – he takes it as a personal attack. And it came to play at Notre Dame. Why did barry speak of Cardinal Bernadin and not Cardinal George, who is alive and the current president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops? Because George spoke out against Notre Dame and barry – early and loudly and before that because of his stance on abortion.
(4-30) CARDINAL GEORGE: Whatever else is clear, it’s clear Notre Dame didn’t understand what it means to be Catholic when they issued this invitation and didn’t anticipate the kind of uproar that would be consequent to the decision, at least not to the extent that it has happened.
There are only two things one needs to know about who barry:
1) He works solely out of political expedience.
2) He cannot and will not stand for anyone to saying anything less than glowing about him.
He seeks not just to win but to destroy his opponent as well. Born out in his political career if one has the honesty to look. If you haven’t seen it or are still denying it – stay tuned.
Other video comments by Cardinal George re: Notre Dame, barry’s intent to reverse the healthworker “conscience clause” and that voting for barry was a “Hobson’s Choice” for Catholics.

Addresses his previous comments re: Notre Dame’s decision to invite barry in which he told Catholics “to call, to e-mail, to write letters” about the “extreme embarrassment” the University of Notre Dame has caused and that “Notre Dame doesn’t know what it means to be Catholic”

Francis Cardinal George in response to barry’s announcement on Feb 27th to remove the conscience clause for health care workers.
barry’s Notre Dame Commencement speech:
Let’s honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded not only in sound science, but also in clear ethics, as well as respect for the equality of women.

Parish Leadership Day 2009 at Maria High School. Cardinal Francis George is talking about who voted for barry and abortion.
You have to have a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, good reason to vote or somebody who is pro-abortion, as is the president.
Abortion is fundamental to the common good of the country. It does away with a human right, namely the right to life, which is fundamental to every other right. If you’re dead you have no other rights.
But it was a Hobson’s choice.
Hobson’s choice as in something’s better than nothing – not exactly praise. Then he goes on to quote barry saying at the National Prayer breakfast that God never permits the killing of an innocent person. Which clearly doesn’t square with abortion unless the fetus in not a person and/or is not innocent.
barry can’t stand for awyone to criticize him and takes it as a personal affront rather than an idealogical one where we “can agree to disagree”. He is very good at saying lofty things about what others should do that never seems to apply to him. At this stage folks still believe his words – hear only his words. They have refused to look at his actions, which have no relevance to those lofty words. Once they do (he’s counting on it never happening) there are going to be some really angry people. His recent reversals on the photos and tribunals have woken some folks up. Be prepared for some more stumping to keep the folks mesmerized…
