Obama’s Thanksgiving Address: “Obey Him and No Thanks to God.”

During his fourth Thanksgiving presidential address, President Barack Obama referenced the recent, long and bruising campaign season, urged the country to unite behind his administration and, for the fourth year running, neglected to offer verbal thanks to God.

“As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy,” Obama said. “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.”

“Thanksgiving,” he continued, “is a chance to put it all in perspective – to remember that, despite our differences, we are, and always will be, Americans first and foremost.”

The president’s call to unite behind his administration follows a bitter election, in which his opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, won independents 50 to 45 percent, and whites 59 to 39 percent.

At the same time, while Democrats made gains in both the House and the Senate, the GOP held control of Congress. Speaker of the House John Boehner has since indicated that he is willing to work with the president, especially regarding the Jan. 1, 2013 fiscal cliff, when a combination of draconian spending cuts and massive tax hikes will hit the sluggish U.S. economy.

Additionally, for the fourth year in a row, the president did not explicitly thank God, raising the ire of conservatives.

    All praise to Obama. If I remember my history correcty it never fares well for leaders to exalt themselves to the place of God.

      Amazing that America, of all countries, would produce this century’s Nazi Party, and a mulatto Hitler. All it took in the 1930 was for “good” Germans to do nothing, and voila! The original Nazi Party. History repeats itself! Stupid, stupid move, America.

  • Wes Walker

    To thank God, one must 1) believe He exists, and 2) believe He has done anything praiseworthy.

    Unlike some, I’ve never called Obama Muslim. (Although he seems to have a curiously elevated opinion of Islam.) But I do not accept his claims of being Christian. Judging by actions and behaviour, He has every appearance of being a garden-variety Secularist.

      As per Obama’s own book… He was raised Islamist by Step Father Lolo and later Communist via Frank (Davis), and as an Adult Marxist.
      He attended a “private” Catholic School in Indonesia, which is common practice for non-local speaking foreigners. However, Obama remains Indonesian with no U.S. reentry form on record. He is a poor example of a Christian or a lie. As President is an act of a testing God or freak of nature (or both.)

    It’s the same old story with Obama, “I won, shut up and sit down.”

  • David S. McQueen

    Of course Obama doesn’t thank God (or anyone else)! Obama sat in Rev. (sic) Jeremiah Wright’s congregation for more than 20 years, listening to Wright berate and denigrate the USA. That’s the “God” Obama prays to.

    The copy I just printed off from whitehouse.gov stated in parts of two sentences:
    “…grateful for the God-given bounty,” and “…mindful of the grace bestowed upon
    us by God and by all who have made our lives richer with their presence.” The
    second one is a bit “vague” after the word God, and I wouldn’t hazard a guess
    as to whom he is referring to ………..

    • Former Lady Law

      Ooops, there IS a huge difference in “the Proclamation – Thanksgiving Day, 2012,”
      and the “Weekly Address: Wishing the American People a Happy Thanksgiving.”
      My apologies. This is one of those “you gotta read it to believe it” items……….

  • czman

    I’m not pulling any punches for the next 4 years…and I’m going to keep track of how many time I post this… The man is a piece of $hit and a po$t turtle. #1 and counting… Sorry – I know it’s not the most Christian thing to do, but I’ve had it with this guy and his so-called administration. I hope you folks out there have stocked up on precious metal…lead!

    why would that nutcase thank god when he thinks he is god or slightly above him how could anyone be stupid enough to vote for him is beyond reason!!

  • Stan

    I’m surprised he didn’t say God didn’t make this, I did!”. There again if he had been referring to the state our country is in… he would be right. I have no trust in a man that has a licence to lie! According to his belief, the end justifies the means when it comes to us infidels!
