For Fourth Straight Year, Obama's Thanksgiving Message Doesn't Thank God
breitbart ^ | 11/21/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/22/2012 2:09:37 PM PST by Nachum

Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.

This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:

But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….

We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.

Hmm... I knew Someone Powerful is behind his 2008 and 2012 election victories. There must be a Divine reason for it.

At least he didn’t thank “Allah the all-merciful”.

Yes, he used the sign of the cross on the turkey- but he did it backwards with his left hand.

And I'm good with that. Being thankful to God implies being within the family, and as being redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

Let him eat turkey and cake.

I doubt Obama is a Moslem, rather I think that he’s a secular humanist, at least first and foremost. His real Holy Trinity can be best summed up as “Me, Myself, and I”.

LOL, this is very clever, me, myself and I. I don’t think he is a Muslim either, but a Muslim sympathizer. I think he believes that by catering to them, they will like us. HA! He’s a fool if he believes that.

There was an article in out paper today about how this election has torn families apart and that the traditional Thanksgiving gatherings are not what they used to be...some family and friends are not included...

I cannot forgive people for not taking the time to investigate who 0bama is and if they did, for voting for him again.

I hope their ox get gored really hard..and when people start to complain about things when I ask if they voted for this man, then they are getting exactly what THEY deserve...they damned the rest of us to it as well..may they lose every cent they had in savings....

All that the left cares about is winning elections, by any means neccessary, and believe me, they will use any means neccessary, to get the votes neccessary for election, they will say anything to get elected, and believe me, all the unions, welfare recipients, and so on, are their useful idiots. The politicians plan involves them gaining all the wealth, and partying with it as the new rich and famous. I don’t think enough people know that if you looked at the Communist leaders, Stalin, Lenin, Castro, and so on, they all lived lives of luxury while the rest of the populace were pretty much reduced to living with corruption, theft, and poverty.

Odumbo does not mention God because it will offend the Muslims. If a Muslim hears the word God, he/she is easily offended. If a Muslim hears Yahweh, he/she is easily offended. A Muslim hears Allah - he/she is joyously happy.

An apostate Muslim will not offend a practicing Muslim - Odumbo Muslim father, stepfather and mentor F. Marshall Davis were all apostate muslims. Also Rev Wright is an apostate Muslim. Valerie Jarrett is another apostate muslim. see the pattern Odumbo surrounds himself with apostate Muslims, non believing Christians (atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and plain old idiots)
