This was not the dream

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLK asked that one day men be judged by their character and not their skin color, today is not that day. I am not a sore loser but a realist. BHO was not judged by his character, for we knew only of his associations. We elected this man because of his skin color, because we knew so little about him. That is not equality. I hope one day for equality of all men of all races but today is not that day. Of the two candidates, McCain had a depth of character that most men could not garner in an entire lifetime. Obama had a list of slimy radical friends, a hidden birth certificate, a hidden college record, hidden state records and voted "present" on the floor often. That is not character. That is a coward. That is someone who has something to hide. One has to wonder if these things will surface now that he has his power that he sought. The hidden or "lost" videos, the undisclosed documents, etc. Not that it would matter. This country got what it deserves. A leader untested, inexperienced and unknown.
I suppose this is what trusting God really means. We have no idea what we are in for. Well America, you have what you deserve. Now you won't have to work a day in your life. Senator Government is here to take care of you.

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

In this case, the silence of our Catholic friends and bishops. God help them.

Exactly. I posted this on my blog couple months ago:

Dr Alveda King, Martin Luther King's niece, has said:

"Senator Obama’s answer to the ills of society, such as continued tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, are diametrically opposed to everything African Americans truly believe and an anathema to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

"Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate. In the shadow of the famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech by my uncle in 1963, as Barack Obama makes his speech in 2008, how can the Dream survive if we murder the children?”

It is a sad day when a man can be elected who is so dedicated to the culture of death. I agree with your sentiments--it is especially sad to think how many "Catholics" voted for BO.
However, I must tell you that many of our bishops did speak and were met with vitriol from so-called Catholics. Our Bishop (Finn) of Kansas City St. Joseph continued to the end to inform all the faithful that a vote for a pro-choice candidate threatened their eternal salvation. He spoke out on the radio at least three times on 11/3/08.
To quote him,"I don't think any Catholic can in good conscience . . . In his brief career, he has collected a very consistent record of a kind of fanaticism for abortion."
Bishop Finn has also been issuing statements at least once a week for many months. And his homily on 11/3/08 did not leave anyone with doubt. (See the Catholic Key blog for details).
God bless and God bless the U.S.A. We trust in Your Divine Mercy, Jesus!
