In his Thanksgiving message this year, Barack Obama reminded us that the economy still sucks and that we are our brothers keeper.
Were also grateful for the Americans who are taking time out of their holiday to serve in soup kitchens and shelters, making sure their neighbors have a hot meal and a place to stay. This sense of mutual responsibility the idea that I am my brothers keeper; that I am my sisters keeper has always been a part of what makes our country special. And its one of the reasons the Thanksgiving tradition has endured
I know that for many of you, this Thanksgiving is more difficult than most. But no matter how tough things are right now, we still give thanks for that most American of blessings, the chance to determine our own destiny. The problems we face didnt develop overnight, and we wont solve them overnight. But we will solve them. All it takes is for each of us to do our part.
With all the partisanship and gridlock here in Washington, its easy to wonder if such unity is really possible. But think about whats happening at this very moment: Americans from all walks of life are coming together as one people, grateful for the blessings of family, community, and country.

Why does Obama continually say that we are our brother’s keeper and sister’s keeper?
I heard him once say that he was attracted to Christianity as an adult, by concepts such as our being our brother’s and sister’s keeper.
But, he is completely misunderstanding and distorting the meaning of the Bible verse in Genesis, in which God asks Cain where his brother is, and Cain responds, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
It’s hard to believe that Obama is any sort of knowledgeable or devout Christian, when he continually cites this as a key tenet of Christianity, and he continually shows that he does not understand the meaning of the Bible verse he’s allegedly inspired by.
Massachusetts taxpayers are the keepers of His illegal aunt and his drunk driving illegal uncle thanks and FUB0.
Excerpt from the above article from July 2011 (referring to Obama always using the term “brother’s keeper”. The term “keeper” is meant as an overseer, owner, etc.:
Now, if you think that treating your brother like a dumb animal, a clothes collection, a tree, a gate, a vine, or a doorway is charitable, then consider the context — Cain was wise-assing God! Cain wasn’t responsibly pondering, “Am I my brother’s noble defender?” He was saying, “How the hell do I know where he is? It’s not in my job description to keep track of him!”.......
Look, the pages of American Thinker are hardly the place to get into a theological debate about the meaning of obscure biblical phrases, but you need to know that when a die-hard leftist appropriates a wise-ass remark made by the archetypal murderer, he is really showing you more about himself than he would like. He’s really saying, “It’s my job (because I take it upon myself) to keep these people in line because they are unthinking, inanimate, and helpless objects which are frankly more like property than equals.” If that is what Obama really thinks of the American people, then we can only hope we escape his brotherly affections.
He means the government. Odumbass has no concept of family or charity - except through government. When he uses the pronoun "we" he means himself and other govt. officials. When he uses "they" or, the plural "you", he means everyone else except union members. He considers them quasi-government and are included in his "family". If one were to dig deep enough I would bet he sees unions as a 'family' alongside government entities.
... a message from the Dyslexics of America.
Name one black obama relative who does not live on welfare or in poverty.
I wonder what soup kitchen served Thanskgiving dinner to his aunt zaituni? Or did she use her food stamps to shop and cook at her welfare apartment? Uncle Onyango brought the wine?
His step-Granny and some of her spawn live in “Council Housing” in Great Britain. Guess the Queen didn’t have their address to invite them over to Buckingham palace for his state dinner last spring.
His “understanding of Christianity” was demonstrated when he used his muslim left hand to make a parody sign of the cross over two turkeys in a disgraceful national press display
His muslim mentors must have enjoyed a good chuckle over that insult
At least he didnt name those turkeys after muslim warriors...not this year anyway
Don’t they wipe with the left hand? I don’t think they use tp either.
Gridlock = democrat obstructionists
They don’t. At most they use a towel hanging in the bathroom (if they have a bathroom).
the crowd chuckles at his parody of a Christian blessing, delivered with his muslim left hand, so he does it twice
Maybe next year they’ll put muhammed’s face on one of the turkeys, I promise to laugh
yes they wipe their azzes with their left hand, by tradition
that’s why using the left hand in any public function (like dipping into the communal eating platter) is an insult
that’s why they amputate the right hand of a thief - ensures future shunning at group feasts
Is it our place to tell the muslim how to treat his own family?
Honestly .. lets not be as bad as the hypocrite in chief now people.
Give him a break .. this is how they do it in his country ..
They forsake their own and tell everyone else how to run their lives....
Unlike him .. we are Americans and know better ... let’s just give the Kenyan a pass on this one in the spirit of the season .. what say you all?
