President Obama's Easter Address

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!

9 mention of rabbit and egg.

1 mention of Christianity.

Does anyone really believe Obama is a Christian?

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.

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.

Obama's Easter Sermon ?

When discussing Christians: "...believe in cultural myths..."

When talking about the Easter Bunny: "...the sacred rabbit..."

"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!"

Is it me or is he referring to the Easter story of Jesus as a "cultural myth?" That's how I read it, in two places.

That photo is one of my favorites. It was Easter in 2009 I think. Why the WH posted it I can’t imagine. Bo is sniffing the President’s crotch as he reads to kids.

omitted was mention of the African equinoctial holiday celebrated in the old and ancient kingdoms called Yasayamam.

The kings are long dead but several princes were enslaved and shipped to America where the memory is still celebrated. Since the ubiquitous presence of cell phones, the tribal remnants can show their colors and assemble on demand in large numbers in a Walgreens or a 7-11 where sacrifices are made by the store manager and the reduced inventory after the gathering is written off as cultural appeasement expense.

Some cultural scholars believe that Yasayamam has a relation to a similar solsticial holiday Kwansa but that is not proven. Yasayamam seems to have originated in oasial Sahara and moved south and west whereas Kwansa can be traced to Harlem although some think east Atlanta. It was formerly thought Kwansa originated in North Charleston but that theory was shown to be in error by the ASCP AA society study.

Remember back in 2009 when Obama told people not to go to Las Vegas. Seems this might get to be a great campaign issue for the king Obama. Here is a link to a 2010 story.

“Please tell me this is from the Onion”

It isn’t the Onion. I wrote it based on what Obama said.

Just for fun.

True it links to my blog, but if you go there you will see that I get no income from ads or anything.

The Obama Clarifier is an educational tool I created after a student asked: Why do people dislike Obama so much?” http://obamaclarifier.blogspot.com/

My goal wasn’t to up traffic to my blog, really. I was just trying to be funny and make fun of Obama who is always spewing blather in these holiday addresses.

Hopefully it lightened up our day with some humor.
