After a one-year absence, God has reappeared in the annual Presidential Thanksgiving proclamation.
Last year the Obama White House caught heat from some groups when God wasn't mentioned in the president's first Thanksgiving proclamation. It was the first time the yearly proclamation failed to include the religious reference. But this year's uses the word God twice.

The closer leftist gets to election day the more god appears in their lexicon!!
Every morning I pray that God would deliver America from the evil that afflicts us in the person of Obama, his Administration and his laws and policies. I pray that God would strike them all down and replace them with Godly men and women and that we once again would be a nation under God.
Yep... it must really grate him not to being paying homage to himself.
