Oh dear. When I posted George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation, I had no idea that our very own Barack Husein Obama would be the first President EVER to not directly acknowledge the existence of God. I also had the misfortune of wasting a minute and 13 seconds of my life watching Barry and what's-her-name telling BabaWawa what a wonderful prayer life they have. In fact they pray before dinner. Wow. I have a very accurate ACME BS Detector and it was beep beep beeping to beat the band as I watched that clip.
Maybe he thought because he referred to George Washington mentioning and thanking God for all that He has bestowed upon us, that that was somehow the same thing as him, Barack Obama, city planner extraordinaire, mentioning and praising God. Obama actually said that the spirit that binds us is our tradition of Thanksgiving. Wow again. Thank you for clarifying that for me. I always attributed that to something... well, other than Thanksgiving Day.
Oh My Goodness.
"I encourage all the people of the United States to come together, whether in our homes, places of worship, community centers, or any place where family, friends and neighbors may gather, with gratitude for all we have received in the past year; to express appreciation to those whose lives enrich our own; and to share our bounty with others."
No. Let me rephrase my prior exclamation. Oh My God.
President Barack Obama, the correct thing in this nation, on this day, would be to say, "Oh My God, We Thank You!"
or if you prefer the teleprompter;
"I encourage all the people of the United States to come together in prayer, whether in our homes, places of worship, community centers, or any place where family, friends and neighbors may gather in His name, with gratitude for all we have received in the past year; to thank God for those whose lives enrich our own; and to share our God-given bounty with others."
Yeah. That's what he should have said. But he didn't.
The whole of Obama's abomination of a Presidential Proclamation can be found here. I am thoroughly disgusted and repulsed.
