Pope gives Nancy a talking too!

I wish I was a fly on the wall....
VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday told U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a Catholic who supports abortion rights, that Catholic politicians have a duty to protect life "at all stages of its development," the Vatican said.

Pelosi is the first top Democrat to meet with Benedict since the election of Barack Obama, who won a majority of the Catholic vote despite differences with the Vatican on abortion.

The Vatican released remarks by the pope to Pelosi, saying Benedict spoke of the church's teaching "on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death." That is an expression often used by the pope when expressing opposition to abortion.

Benedict said all Catholics—especially legislators, jurists and political leaders—should work to create "a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."

Pelosi could not immediately be reached after the 15-minute meeting, which was closed to reporters and photographers. The two met in a small room of a Vatican auditorium after the pope's weekly public audience.

A number of the bishops in the United States have questioned Pelosi's stance on abortion, particularly her theological defense of her support for abortion rights.

Benedict has cautiously welcomed the new Democratic administration, although several American cardinals have sharply criticized its support of abortion rights in a break from former President George W. Bush.

Pelosi had meetings with Italian leaders the past few days, including Premier Silvio Berlusconi.

Krauthammer's prediction came sooner

From Charles Krauthammer at WaPo here:

After Obama's miraculous 2008 presidential campaign, it was clear that at some point the magical mystery tour would have to end. The nation would rub its eyes and begin to emerge from its reverie. The hallucinatory Obama would give way to the mere mortal. The great ethical transformations promised would be seen as a fairy tale that all presidents tell -- and that this president told better than anyone.

I thought the awakening would take six months. It took two and a half weeks.

Happy Birthday President Reagan

Save the F-22 Raptor

HT from HotAir here.

Keep the protection and the jobs Americans need. Like My Husband in aerospace and those in the military. And the GWOT still exists even though President Obama says its not.

Sign the petition to send to President Obama. We need to keep these jobs not a stimulus package.

Two children limit?

When my oldest daughter was diagnosed with autism I was told by family members not to have more children. I told them to stop butting in my decisions. I told them it was unkind and that I, my husband and GOD would make that decision. When my second was born she too has autism. To me it's no big deal. My kids are normal to me. They do have learning disabilities but we are dealing with it with Resources, Special Ed class, Speech and Occupational Therapy. It is extra work but they are my kids and I love them very much. And If I could I would have more. WE don't need people or government to tell us how many children we can have. And there are people who would rather abort then to bring the child to full term. But to force parents who want kids to abort is a sin. Look at China. I don't think we should go there. Let couples make the decision. God's will should prevail.

He saw his shadow this morning!

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) - The world's most famous groundhog saw his shadow Monday morning, predicting this already long winter will last for six more weeks.

Punxsutawney Phil emerged just after dawn in front of an estimated 13,000 witnesses, many dressed in black-and-gold to celebrate the Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl victory the night before.

"There's significant buzz from the Steelers win and quite a few Terrible Towels floating from the crowd," said Mickey Rowley, deputy secretary for tourism in Pennsylvania.

The annual ritual takes place on Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill in Punxsutawney, a borough of about 6,100 residents some 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
