‘Why Pope Francis May Be the Best Politician in the World’
May 30, 2014
The Italian edition of L’Osservatore Romano has reprinted “Why Pope Francis May Be the Best Politician in the World,” an op-ed piece written by a leader of the Obama campaign’s outreach to Catholics.
The Vatican newspaper gave the article, which originally appeared in Time, a new title: “Artisans of Peace.”
Christopher Hale, the article’s author, contrasted Pope Francis’s success in bringing together Israeli and Palestinian leaders with the Obama administration’s “failed efforts” to do so.

Hang on, Christopher. With that kind of commentary, you'll be next in line to resign in the new wave of bailing-out.

Obama has failed in just about every area of policy making and execution, not just the Israeli-Palestinian question. It escapes me why any intelligent person, then, would want to be "a leader of the Obama campaign’s outreach to Catholics."
