Obama 'puzzled' at annual turkey pardon
CNN ^ | 11/26/14 | Alexandra Jaffe

....Obama pardoned the national Thanksgiving turkey with a smile on Wednesday, but he admitted before saving the bird from it's likely demise that he found the decades-old tradition somewhat "puzzling."

"It is a little puzzling that I do this every year, but I will say that I enjoy it because with all the tough stuff that swirls around in this office it's nice once in a while just to say, 'Happy Thanksgiving,'" he said.

Two things:

1. Obama has hated this little ceremony ever since he seized power. If you find video from the 2009 event, you can see he despises doing it.

2. I think he is scared of these animals. Look at the video from this year....he keeps his distance. If a Republican acted so skittish around the birds, the media would definitely take notice and wonder if he had a phobia.

Plain and simple... he hates tradition in any form.

But he doesn’t find failure to obey his oath of office and shredding the Constitution to be puzzling at all. What a disgusting schmuck.

The turkeys are white, that’s why he hates pardoning them.

He finds anything related to ‘tradition’ puzzling because he is a progressive through and through. Anything that gives some sort of comfort, stableness, etc. is against his very idea of “change and progress.”

He doesn’t have a phobia, he’s simply a city slicker. Like the many and growing number of metrosexual men he would starve on a farm.

He looks at the Turkey and thinks how lucky it is. At least.it was born here.

“It is a little puzzling that I do this every year”

Hopefully no one will be doing that for you after your term of office concludes at which time you will hopefully answer for each and everyone of your crimes and for your part in the conspirators’ crimes to take down this once great Nation.

He would be so nice for him just once to honestly, and unequivocally, support and defend America and her traditions, laws and ideals. He can’t help himself. It truly is pathological.

Puzzled because it doesn’t serve his narcissistic needs.

“...he hate tradition...” should read “he hates any American tradition”.

The only thing Obama is puzzled about is whether he’ll be pardoned after he’s relocated to Club Fed.

He also repeatedly told the fib that he hates ice cream dating to his early job serving up cones of ice cream. PLENTY of photos on the web prove he does NOT hate ice cream.

The man is a fraud and lies about things that don't even matter.

do you know what they’re going to do?

eventually the multicultural lists are going to try to transform Thanksgiving into what Columbus Day is becoming:

dirty and embarrassing and antiquated.

their timetable is completely open ended they will give themselves ETERNITY to accomplish this.

Cuz indians later died and it has elements of Christianity.

I don’t know why; but I became irritated when zero the muzzie, did the Catholic sign-of-the-cross in front of the turkey. Maybe it’s just me.
