For Fourth Straight Year, Obama's Thanksgiving Message Doesn't Thank God
Breitbart ^ | 11/22/2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/22/2012 9:52:34 PM PST by mojito

Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.

This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:

"But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy."

"That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to …."

This year, Barry was thankful for the "Three Big A's: Allah, Alinsky, and Axelrod."

Not necessarily in that order.

He doesn’t have anything to thank God for. So it’s another wash.

Unbelievable that this asshole would inject politics into the annual WH Thanksgiving Turkey “pardon” tradition.

Everything is about him.

F**ckin’ narcissist.

I can only hope that one day, he is the one in need of a Presidential pardon.

I can hardly wait to hear his Christmas message to the nation...

Why should racist Barry thank God? To him, that’s a white man’s invention. Besides, Marxists believe that religion is the opiate of the people to ease the pain of the “heartless world” and the “soulless conditions”. Barry don’t need any of that. He’s the Top Dog.

I wish people who have such scorn for “white people’s inventions” would put their money where their mouths are and stay well away from those “white man’s inventions”. That would leave them living in a mud hut drinking cow urine, but they’d be morally pure. Leave that modern technology to the evil whites.

Obviously nobody cares because they reelected him. I guess Americans like paying over 3 dollars a gallon on gas. The one thing I wish is that they wouldn’t distort the truth. I though conservatives were better than that. The average gallon of gas is NOT 3.89. Conservatives have been stretching the truth so much the last four years that it is becoming an epidemic sadly.

What is the average price then? I was in California recently and paid well north of $4.00, so an average in the high threes doesn’t sound like a stretch to me.

It is 3.43 which for gas is a huge difference then 3.86 and that is the truth.

Thank you for the clarification. It’s still too damned high, whether it’s $3.86 or $3.43.

Oh yeah. It is ridiculous that it is that high. Obama has been a disaster for gas prices because of his restrictions. I hear all the time that the President has nothing to do with gas prices and normally i believe that is true. However, with Obama stopping drilling in some areas, it is clearly a reason that the prices are so high. Try to tell that to a liberal and it is not possible.

General Thanksgiving

By the PRESIDENT of the United States Of America

A PROCLAMATION - 1789

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;— for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;— for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;— and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;— to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.
(signed) G. Washington

The next four years should be fun, since I’m sure Obama et al. will do their level best to get our gasoline prices up to par with those in Europe. Joy.

Two Coffees in Heaven!

Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven,
Barrack Obama meets a man with a beard.

‘Are you Mohamed?’ he asks.
‘No my son, I am St. Peter; Mohamed is higher up.’
Peter then points to a ladder that rises into the clouds.

Delighted that Mohamed should be higher than St. Peter,
Obama climbs the ladder in great strides,
climbs up through the clouds and comes into a room
where he meets another bearded man.

He asks again, ‘Are you Mohamed?’
‘Why no,’ he answers, ‘I am Moses;
Mohamed is higher still.’

Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy
he climbs the ladder yet again.

He discovers a larger room where he meets an
angelic looking man with a beard.
Full of hope,he asks again,
‘Are you Mohamed?’

‘No, I am Jesus,the Christ;
you will find Mohamed higher up.’

Mohamed higher than Jesus!
Man,oh man! Obama can hardly contain his
delight and climbs and climbs ever higher.

Once again, he reaches an even larger room
where he meets this truly magnificent looking man
with a silver white beard and once again repeats his question:

‘Are you Mohamed?’ he gasps as he is by now,
totally out of breath from all his climbing.
‘No, my son, I am Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega,
but you look exhausted.
Would you like a cup of coffee?’

Obama says, ‘Yes, please!’
As God looks behind him, he claps his hands
and yells out: ‘Hey, Mohamed, two coffees!’

Keep your trust in God;
your president is an idiot.

We need to just accept it as a given that Obunghole will not mention God. Fourth year in row.....an next year it will be the same...fifth year in a row etc..

We are stuck with this POS for the next four years, and maybe longer if Porter Stansberry is right.

And for the 4th straight year, on Thanksgiving Day, I curse the existence of this alleged president who in truth is a fascist , usurper, unqualified for the office.

President for life could be less than 4 years or more than 40...

Not advocating anything, just making an observation.
