For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama Losing Steam

It looks as though the fallout from Barack Obama’s relationships and/or associations with black separatist people (Rev. Wright) or groups (New Black Panthers) has finally had an effect on the polls. The latest Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll now shows Obama trailing Hillary Clinton 44% to 46% respectively, which is a big change from Obama’s nine point lead (49% to 40%) over Hillary at the end of February.

No one has benefited more, it seems, than John McCain has from the Democrat slugfest. Having the Republican nomination already wrapped up, he holds his biggest lead over Obama thus far, 49% to 41%, while his lead over Hillary Clinton remains solid at 49% to 43%.

Obviously with the November election several months away, the polls can and will change. But isn’t nice to know we don’t HAVE to hope Hillary wins just so McCain can beat the Democrat. He can beat either of them, if he doesn’t forsake his party. Ahhh, and therein lies the rub.
