The truth is that Obama is hoping some of the Pope's popularity and favorable ratings will rub off on him. I hope Pope Francis will not be fooled by this fool.

I do not think this is a good idea. I fear that Vice-President Biden will have to be sworn in since President Obama may spontaneously burst into flames upon entering the Vatican.
