Doug Kmiec Thinks He's Breaking Up With Obama, But Obama Already Jilted Him First [UPDATED]
Can it be? Can we finally say of the sorry saga that I've dubbed The Passion of the Kmiec: "It is finished." ?
Doug Kmiec, the President's chief Catholic shill whose advocacy and despicable display of sycophancy on behalf of the most pro-abortion candidate in our Nation's history helped pave the way for a majority of self-identified Catholics to vote for said candidate, has decided to finally call it quits with Obama.
Unfortunately for Kmiec, he apparently still doesn't realize that Obama had already jilted him 3 years ago, as soon as he became President and no longer needed the head of a prominent pro-life (allegedly) Catholic implanted in his arse.
Here's the story from LifeSiteNews:
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 6, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Barack Obama’s most prominent Catholic supporter is backing away from the radically pro-abortion leader over his administration’s decision to force religious institutions to cover contraception, including abortifacients, and sterilizations.(emphasis and editorial commentary added)
Doug Kmiec, Obama’s former Ambassador to Malta, revealed this week that he is now “without a candidate” for the 2012 election because of the contraception mandate. [ED.: This guy was a Romney man before he became Obama's version of Richard Rich. Why doesn't he just go back to shilling for Dullard Flip Rino again? Isn't he basically Doug's "get back" guy? You know, after the breakup, you get back together with "get back" guy. Besides, Romney has basically the same positions on most of the major issues as Obama, so getting back together with Romney should provide a smooth landing for Dougie.]
“Until I have an opportunity to speak with the president [ED.: In other words, his boyfriend could still win him back with a lot of flowery words and an "I still love you". Pathetic.], I am for now (unhappily) [ED.: I'm just heartbroken over this turn of events. I mean, Obama is just so dreamy and, apart from all the anti-life things he's done during his presidency, such as this HHS mandate, he's a natural for the Catholic vote.] without a candidate,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Hill.
Kmiec, a Republican and former dean at Catholic University of America’s law school, shocked pro-lifers when he endorsed Obama in 2008 and went on tour promoting him as the “pro-life” candidate. [ED.: And as no less than "a natural for the Catholic vote". In other words, Doug travelled around the country on a lying tour to sell Catholics a crock of shit. Telling a lie that any thinking person KNEW was a lie. Read on and you will see that Doug is STILL smitten and is STILL telling that lie on behalf of his beloved.]
In a Feb. 2nd letter, a copy of which he sent to Catholic Online’s Deacon Keith Fournier, Kmiec told President Obama, “In deciding against a reasonable accommodation of Catholic concerns in the implementation of the health care program, you lost sight of your own beliefs.” [ED.: Seriously, Doug? Are you still trying to pull this shit? Trying to pretend that Obama is something that he is clearly not? Trying to pretend that he is anything other than an anti-life secularist? I think it's quite clear that he has kept sight of his own beliefs throughout his entire career - he is a true believer in the gospel of Planned Parenthood, even willing to allow health care reform to die and the government to shut down rather than to deny Planned Parenthood their victories on federal funding of abortion.]
“Why put the cold calculus of politics above faith and freedom?” [ED.: Again, Obama didn't do this for political gain, because he actually has more to lose politically from the HHS mandate than he has to gain. He did it because he is a true believer in what Planned Parenthood preaches and he did it because he's a statist and because he's a secularist and because he can.] he wrote. “Please respond, [ED.: Please write me back. Please call me. Haven't you read my letters? Haven't you seen my emails? My texts? Haven't you listened to the 479 messages I left for you on your voice mail?] for friendship will not permit me to disregard duty to faith and country. [ED.: I will always love you, but you just can't go on hurting me like this. By the way, don't you remember how I was denied Communion for my love of you? So, why are you doing this to me? To us?] The Barack Obama I knew [ED.: I know deep down that you're not this person who abuses me like this. I know I can change you. That I HAVE changed you. But this person I'm seeing now is not the REAL you.] would never have asked me to make that choice.” [ED.: Good God, just stop, Doug. This groveling behavior over some shared moment that exists only in your fevered imagination is just embarrassing and unseemly. Face it, Doug. He's just not that into you.]

Told ya so, Doug, but you just wouldn't listen. But then, you were being obstinate in your refusal to acknowledge what everyone, including you, KNEW to be true. You've been played, and allowed yourself to be played. And I plan on rubbing this one in for a long time.
I suppose it would be too much to ask from the obviously still-smitten Kmiec that he issue an apology for his sycophantic shilling on Obama's behalf. And he SHOULD apologize, profusely and repeatedly. He should do public penance. Because HE is the one Catholic in America MOST RESPONSIBLE for the fact of a President Obama. And because of that, he has both the blood of the unborn and the persecution of the Catholic Church on his hands.
At The American Catholic, my friend Darwin Catholic wonders why it is THIS issue, as opposed to all the other issues where Obama has lived up to his anti-life street creds, that has the ObamaCaths finally rethinking their support of the most pro-abortion President in this nation's history:
... while it never does well to question why people are late to the barricades (we can use all the allies in the “culture war” that we can get) I must admit that I’m kind of perplexed by the reaction.Good question. I think I know the answer, but I want to contemplate it for a little while before I opine on it.
Figures like Kmiec have shown themselves willing to sell huge moral issues like abortion, euthanasia and gay marriage down the river of political expedience in return for little gestures of “fair mindedness” from Obama and the Democratic party. I figured, naturally enough, I think, that this was because they simply cared a lot more about the package of political issues which define the Democratic party than they did about these moral issues, and that the crowing over gestures of accommodation was just so much window dressing. This sudden feeling of betrayal over an issue which, while grave, is certainly less shocking than Obama’s strong support for far more pernicious evils almost makes it appear that it was, all this time, the window dressing that they valued.
