Obama fails to mention God in Thanksgiving address

Barack Obama gave the traditional presidential Thanksgiving address today, but he didn’t mention God. No, wait! Keep reading. For some people, this is a big deal…

Apparently the failure to mention God makes Obama a militant atheist, or a Muslim, or both. It’s confusing out there in religion-land, where the president is apparently supposed to be a cross between the Pope and Ronald Reagan at all times.

Obama hasn’t always been so Godless on Thanksgiving. He mentioned the deity in his previous Thanksgiving addresses. But not this time. Other fictional characters he failed to namecheck include Rupert the Bear, Gandalf and Davros.

One thought on “Obama fails to mention God in Thanksgiving address

  1. I am thankful on this Thanksgiving Day for the fact that we have Barack Obama as President of the United States -and- as a viable candidate for re-election (as opposed to the sorry sorry set of rivals on the other side). Thank you Mr. President : your heart, your values, and your basic decency.. are all in the right place. But… your hands are tied. Unfortunately they were tied by us, the electorate…..by not providing you with a Congress that you can work with. Instead, you have a don’t-tax-the-1%-do-nothing Congress that battles you at every turn, while the people suffer.  God, they don’t EVEN let you pass your own appointments. It’s not Tea-publican gridlock, it’s Tea-publican sabotage. Heck, it’s Tea-publican TREASON. And then they try to pin the blame on Mr. Obama. These people have no shame…or else its been purchased by those who can afford to do so. Thankfully, Occupy Wall Street is part of an emerging grass-roots evolution…a down-to-to-earth change …a change that will help us to re-elect the President AND to give him a more progressive Congress. Therefore, on this Thanksgiving day,  I am thankful and grateful that you are the President Mr. Obama! And I wish you well. You STILL give me hope.
