Posted on 11/23/2012 2:02:58 PM PST by John Semmens
The fourth year of President Obamas reign maintained his traditional omission of God from the Thanksgiving address to the nation. This break from his predecessors was vigorously defended by First Lady Michelle Obama.
Why should God get the credit for blessings that He had no part in creating? Michelle asked. Its federal farm programs that ensure a robust harvest each year. Its the FDA that guarantees the food we put on our tables is safe to eat. And its the generous expansion of eligibility for Food Stamps that has enabled even the poorest among us the opportunity to enjoy an adequate diet.
The First Lady contrasted governments role with the seeming indifference of God. There has been drought, floods, and storms to impede the process of feeding the hungry under Gods watch. We need to move beyond a superstitious awe for a mythical entity and show a greater appreciation for the beneficence that Barack has bestowed upon the common people of this nation.
Not wishing to appear excessively closed-minded, Michelle did allow that if people want to thank God for anything it should be for creating Barack. That such a person has arrived to lead this country at a pivotal point in our history is a miracle everyone should be grateful for.

Yhe Lord is not in the Obama house. The Obama house labors in vain and shall fall.
Praising God for socialism. You captured another one.
When you are (or think) you are God ,there is no reason to talk about God
Another case of reality more than satire.
Can’t POSSIBLY be SATIRE!!!!!!!! No way!
You can say that again!
Something she probably really thinks too
Good one John. I wouldn’t put it past her to say exactly as you wrote. Thanks too for the ping.
Works for me John. I’m still wondering when the first wookie is gonna bite his head off...
Well, Obama belongs to the party that booed God after all.
(I think Pelosi would have worshiped Baal back in the day.)
you know how muslims are
Once again, you are spot on. Thanks for the ping.
Mmm mmm mmm
Satire or not, I’m thinking that God omitted Obama from His Thanksgiving address for the fourth straight year also.......
Actually, having read thought Hebrew scriptures — my Old Testament — more than once and seeing God do so repeatedly, I actually believe that God is directing Obama to crush America and Americans in the same way He used this or that wicked ruler to crush His chosen, yet wayward, Israelite people.
