Richard RichDoug Kmiec, who betrayed the pro-life cause in 2008 by endorsing the most pro-abort President in our nation’s history, is back in the news. Following his resignation from his Malta ambassadorship, his 30 pieces of silver from Obama for his support in 2008, after being criticized in a State Department report for spending his time on private writing instead of his ambassadorial duties, Kmiec announced yesterday that he is 98% sure he will endorse Obama next year:
“He’s someone who has made good on his principal promises against substantial headwinds,” he said. Kmiec cited the president’s response to economic troubles, the extension of health insurance coverage and his work in international affairs.
Kmiec, a law professor at Pepperdine University School of Law and a former official in the Reagan administration, endorsed President Obama in the 2008 election in an effort to win over some Catholic and conservative votes.
After almost three decades as an attorney, few things shock me anymore, but this statement did shock me, and I will take this opportunity to speak directly to Mr. Kmiec:
Doug, Doug, Doug, I am disappointed in you! You are selling yourself short. Unless you have some new reward lined up, rule one in the traitor biz is never to sell out cheaply, and you seem to be completely ignoring it. There must be at least five, maybe even six or seven Catholics, who still think you have a shred of credibility and will consider your endorsement of Obama as something other than as an opportunity to spit. That has to be worth something to the Pro-Abort-in-Chief. Man up Doug, and after you leave Malta march into the Oval Office and demand a reward befitting your deserts. If he fobs you off with another ambassadorship make certain this time he gives you a skilled Foreign Service flunky to do the real work while you can spend your precious time writing. Might I add, speaking for I think many Catholic bloggers, that we await your writings with keen interest and eager fisks. Best of luck in your future endeavors. You are an inspiration to turn coats everywhere!
