Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Disses Obamas' Christmas Card
Posted on 12/22/2011 12:24:32 PM PST by illiac
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is dissing President Obamas holiday greeting card, which features a painting of first dog Bo sleeping in front of a fireplace decorated with red bows and greenery.
The card is odd, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee told Fox News. Palin added that a Yuletide greeting from the White House should express American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.
Fox News Radio has also chimed in, trying to fit the card into the networks war on Christmas theme, saying:
The official White House holiday card makes no mention of the word Christmas and instead focused on Bo the First Dog based on wishes of the first family.

Summing up Sarah’s PC approach to making the point....
** MUSLIMS DON’T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS **
Especially America-hating Muslims.
Did the have a nice photos of the white house “Christmas Wishing tree”
I know we always had a wishing tree, you know - where we made wishes.
That’s nice, Sarah.
Now quit your cushy job at Faux News-Obama, and get to the campaign trail, why don’t you?
She is absolutely right. This is a pseudo Christmas card that makes on mention of Christmas.
Just another charade by these frauds to make people think ‘they are just like us’.
Michelle, you KNOW you don’t belong in the WH. You and Reggie’s ‘best friend’ both know that. You have said that the country doesn’t deserve you, you are right. We DON’T deserve what has been fraudulently foisted on us.
I have a Christmas card from Dubya. It features the two dogs in the snow in front of the White House.
And did they make a wish when they blew out the candles on the Jewish Menorah?
It doesn't quite say "For God so loved the world . . . ".
It's more of a "It's great to be king and have this marvelous house that the taxpayers decorate to look pretty."
I have about 1,000 reasons for disliking Obama but I could give a rat's ass what kind of Christmas or holiday or whatever cards the White House sends out.
It's like complaining how high the grass in the yard is while the house burns to the ground.
He should send one to me. I would SOUND like I was Dissing on the card...
The card should have had a picture of chairman mao on it. Better suited to the little tyrant.
I think the card shows that the White House is full of nothing but empty chairs.
I have that card from W too. I also have one from Reagan featuring a chandelier.
Muslims don't own dogs and certainly wouldn't let one in the house.
Eh this kind of makes us look petty being picky over every little thing. It just makes it look like we want to harp on everything and then our more important legitimate criticisms will be viewed with skepticism.
The card looks nice and it was probably designed by pr people with not much input from President.
Maybe Bo is really in charge there. BS had him flown back to DC from HI so he could have a photo op at the pet store. Every room of the WH has holiday decorations and a larger than life replica of Bo. Seems to me that there is a message there somewhere.
Exactly. Now it is being billed as Republicans picking on the card. Sarah has never been apt at picking and choosing her fights.
This is one she should have ignored. There is a whole lot wrong with Barry. The reasons to complain are numerous.
“..Muslims don’t own dogs and certainly wouldn’t let one in the house..”
Obama is an exception then on at least TWO counts.... :-)
Palin is like a female Rush, talks all the time but nothing ever changes.
Note that the card is a PAINTING of Bo at the fireplace. Not a photograph.
I'm dreaming of a brokered convention
Just like the one we had in '52...
“..Note that the card is a PAINTING of Bo at the fireplace. Not a photograph...”
Asute observation. There is nothing REAL about this FRAUD. A living lie personified. And the trail of dupes are still following him around lapping up the BS piles behind him.
LOL! I love it, thank you!
Back during the ‘08 campaign days, wasn’t there a time when Hussein said that his girls don’t get Christmas gifts, or that they don’t celebrate Christmas, or something like that? With his ratings so pitiful, maybe he’s making a small effort to imply that they’re into Christmas now.
Merry Yule from the dog, Bo.
We wipe our feet on you and hate dogs.
“Palin is like a female Rush, talks all the time but nothing ever changes.”
That’s up to you, isn’t it?
I agree. This whole dissing on a Christmas card borders on ridiculous. Sarah should really pick her fights better and not be petty because more people will lose faith in her while she makes these lame jabs.
It’s a White House Christmas card. If you look through the last 40 years, you will see there are some really horrific cards that came out. During ALL administrations (including Reagan’s).
Here’s a site with some of the ... worst? Only site I could find with them.
Helps if you actually put the link....
Did the Bush card say anything about Christmas?
You missed the point.
Their talk is meaningless. Blogs produce better results from whistle blowers that others just report on or follow.
Few in the media request write in campaigns or list who or what not to vote for and why or why not, that would be to committal.
At best talking heads add to misdirection of pertinent events.
Not surprising. He can’t wait to take his non-Christian, Christmas-avoiding-pretending-it-isnt-happening, muslim vacation. Which many, MANY muslims do around this time of the year.
The White House card can be interpreted as the following message from The Socialist in Chief:
Happy Holidays, my pets.
Best thing about the WH in the card is the dog.
Muslims practicing al-taqiyaa would.
And Obama practices al-taqiyaa.
Yup. Right here:
Good catch. I didn't examine it that closely. That should be his "out" of a sticky situation with his peeps in the Muslim Brotherhood.
Presents beneath a bowl of brownish redish leaves...whats up with that?
I love this woman!!!
