I'm inclined to agree with you, and was disappointed when I read the article. Bagnasco is known as a friend of the TLM, and publicly supported Summorum Pontificum. From the little I know of him (from here in Pennsylvania) I thought he might be good papabile.

I went on though to google Borhezio and found he's been fined for beating a Moroccan child, and charged with burning the belongings of some homeless people in Turin.

While maybe good on the need for a new Crusade, he sounds like he might be a lout. That may be the reason Cardinal Bagnasco felt it necessary to distance himself from him.
