President Obama's Easter Address. White House April 7, 2012
Good afternoon. This Sunday marks a holiday for a major religion in our nation. Easter is a time for families to come together to enjoy a nice meal and perhaps go on an "egg hunt". Thousands of years ago the people of Europe seeking to invite their god to return after a long an cold winter lit fires and painted eggs as a sign of fertility.
Today we also express our hope for a new dawning in America when prosperity returns after the winter of flawed economic policies that forced so many of our people into a dark night of want and despair.
Now we are seeing hope return! Just like the budding of trees and the blooming of spring time flowers, thanks to the hard work of so many in Washington and in my Administration we see that America is beginning to work again.
Our baskets are being filled -- not with candied eggs and treats -- but with thousands of green energy jobs and health care for everyone.
Easter time holds special meaning for Christians. But all of us, no matter what faith or philosophy -- or even if we choose not to believe in cultural myths at all -- can identify with elements of the sacred rabbit story: no matter how cold the winter, spring always triumphs!
So, let us celebrate the triumph of hope over despair. Of faith over doubt. Of equality over wealth hording.
Let us take hold of the notion that there is something out there that is bigger than ourselves! So while we may put our trust in ancient cultural beliefs, we are even more comforted with the knowledge that something truly bigger than our selves is working in Washington providing the benefits and programs that are helping Americans find their way in life's journey.
Just like the Easter Bunny brings treats to satisfy our sweet tooth, our policies are ensuring that the middle class will not be left with empty baskets.
That is why we ask that the top one percenters in our nation to give just a small part of their wealth to share with the vast majority who just want to get by with some dignity. Then our land will be like a lawn spread with colored eggs, ready to be found!
This faith helps unite Americans of all backgrounds, income levels, ethnicities, sports teams and parties. It reminds us what can happen when the rich are generous! It gives us strength to endure difficult times caused by the flawed policies of the past. It is this faith that lavishes upon us hope as we look for the coming of that Bunny of Recovery in the near future.
Happy Easter. And good egg hunting for us all!

Obozo has become a parody of a real President.
“A holiday for a major religion”
One among many I guess....
I keep looking for some mention of this being satire
This is satire ....right ?
....thats the meaning of easter...
dopey me, I shoulda known it.
thank you my holy messiah.
The Sarc is strong in this one
Face palm !!!
...thanks to the hard work of so many in Washington and in my Administration we see that America is beginning to work again.”
Is this a joke or satire. It has to be. Even if we choose not to believe in myths we can believe in the sacred rabbit story???? It is a joke right?
“This is satire ....right ?”
Now, why would you think that?
Looks like I fooled some here, hee, hee.
Yes, I just made this up. But, it is based on the real message. I think my version is actually better.
“...something truly bigger than our selves is working in Washington providing the benefits and programs that are helping Americans find their way in life’s journey.”
This is a joke. Right?
He can’t seriously have said this stuff. America is on life support BECAUSE of the economic disaster he’s orchestrated.
Any signs of life are IN SPITE of his work, NOT because of it.
Your “White House” LINK is to your blog.
Please clarify if this dreck was written by YOU? If so, you need to fix the link to your blog please?
satire - but it does sound like him -
here’s his short, ‘nothing’ easter speach
That clarified - is that photo with the dogs nose in his - ahmmm - crotch, photoshopped?
Very good one :-)
...sacred rabbit story? O, boy!!! What a putdown on Christianity!
Nothing would surprise me coming out of this white house....
Your version is within the realm of possible
Good job !
Please tell me that this is satire? But on 2nd thought, I know that this is a real political re-election speech to come from Obama and his speech writers.
The man is so shallow and lacking in true roots in this nation that he is only capable of speaking self-centered political tripe.
