While pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey today, President Obama absolved it with what he called a "special dispensation," making the Sign of the Cross over the gobbling turkey.
It appears that Obama made a left handed, backward sign of the cross.

I was thinking the same thing. He seems utterly clueless about most things and how they might be taken by other people (who aren't dedicated lefties).
He is basically mocking something that Catholics have a spiritual connection to; and, I'm just not sure he understands that. But, if he doesn't, why doesn't someone in his staff let him know that what he just did was offensive to some of his fellow citizens.
I think Peggy Noonan wrote an article about Zero and how he is an "alien"; meaning, someone who just doesn't get America. He is not American, in the sense that most people think of themselves as American and understand our traditions. He is a foreigner, and the fact that we elected (and then re-elected!) someone who just doesn't understand the country or the people he is supposed to be representing to the world, just astounds me.
Obama: we can count on you to be an ass again.
He intentionally covered up the cross for his Georgetown speach.
If he wanted to do something “Catholic” why not wave a medal of St. Francis or something in THAT vein. What an ass. Christ did not die for literal turkeys.
That’s not the sign of the cross.
It’s the sign of the axe!
al Qaeda is in the White House, basically.
No arrogant condescending “freepers” to tell us that the video was posted backwards yet?
Ah, election is over, so no need for them to waste bandwidth here anymore.
I was wondering about the fact that Michelle wasn't in that photo op. And, when was the last time we saw them together? Certainly, not on the latest trip to Thailand and Burma where he was kissing up to the ladies (literally).
I have made a prediction to my hubby since early in his first term. I believe he may be the first POTUS to end up divorced from a First Lady. Anybody else see that writing on the wall?
I think he and his staff just don't care.
We saw that evident in his Burma visit, when he manhandled Aung San Suu Kyi and repeatedly called the country Myanmnar.
“He doesn’t know the proper way to do it because hes not a Christian. Every Christian knows you make the sign of the cross with your right hand.”
Have you ever heard of Protestants?
Well, every Catholic, probably. I've never made the sign of the cross, so I don't know the proper procedure.
Now? You mean still.
If George Bush had done this the public would have sh*t.
I’ve seen him mock Christians in general, but not Catholics in particular
Blasphemy!!! Where is the Spanish Inquisition now that we need it?
