Standing against big government and for the people!
Quite a contrast from Presidential addresses by former Presidents whom thanked God for our blessings and living in the greatest Free country on earth. But then what should I expect from Obama? The Marxist in chief doesn't believe in our God. Sad, sad for America.
Darla Dawald, National Director
WASHINGTON, DC—During this holiday season, President Obama gave thanks in his weekly address for all of the blessings we share as Americans, and expressed his gratitude to the brave men and women who are defending our freedom around the world. As we come together to spend time with those we love, we also stand with those who are less fortunate this year, including our fellow Americans in the northeast who lost so much during the recent storm. This Thanksgiving, friends, family, and community will gather in the spirit of unity and look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.
November 22, 2012
On behalf of the Obama family – Michelle, Malia, Sasha and Bo – I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving.
For us, like so many of you, this is a day full of family and friends; food and football. It’s a day to fight the overwhelming urge to take a nap – at least until after dinner. 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.
Thanksgiving 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.
Today we give thanks for blessings that are all too rare in this world. The ability to spend time with the ones we love; to say what we want; to worship as we please; to know that there are brave men and women defending our freedom around the globe; and to look our children in the eye and tell them that, here in America, no dream is too big if they’re willing to work for it.
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.
Right now, as we prepare to gather around our dinner tables, there are families in the northeast who don’t have that luxury. Many of them have lost everything to Hurricane Sandy – homes, possessions, even loved ones. And it will be a long time before life goes back to normal.
But in the midst of so much tragedy, there are also glimmers of hope. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen FEMA personnel, National Guard and first responders working around the clock in hard-hit communities. We’ve seen hospital workers using their lunch breaks to distribute supplies. Families offering up extra bedrooms. The fire department advertising free hot showers. Buses full of volunteers coming from hundreds of miles away. Neighbors sharing whatever they have – food, water, electricity – and saying again and again how lucky they are to have a roof over their heads.
It would have been easy for these folks to do nothing – to worry about themselves and leave the rest to someone else. But that’s not who we are. That’s not what we do.
As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work – not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.
That’s something to be grateful for – today and every day.
So to all the Americans doing your part to make our world a better place – it is my privilege to serve as your President. To all our service members – it is my honor to be your Commander in Chief. And from our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving.
And the Title actually means...those who support the President and stand behind him...are worshiping a FALSE Idol!
WE know how God feels about that!
OVOMIT, THE ILLEGAL ALIEN MUSLIM DICTATOR SLIME BALL IN CHIEF... BUY FOOD AND AMMO, AND FIND A PLACE TO HIDE IN THE WOODS... THE CITIES WILL ALL LOOK LIKE HURRICANE KATRINA AND SANDY... ALL YOU DUMBO CRAPS VOTED FOR IT,AND YOU WILL GET IT... STARVATION AND EXECUTION...
You need to get Andrew G. Hodges, M.D to go over this speech and let him tell you what he read between the lines.
I'm sorry I have to say it, but this arrogent self-loving Muslim is a piece of s%#& and his words are meaningless!
Well at least he managed to squeeze GOD in there ... but not in thanks ... well, kind of..
Your right Evy and not to forget to mention: a lousy blasphemous LOSER!
"The candidate we suppoert and instead of the country we belong to?" Glad I still had some nausea meds available!
Of course he does , dictator isn,t enough for him , he wants to be GOD . But I refuse to worship a retarded god .
I am sorry but that was really hard to read. He is the commander and chief of the MILITARY? My God....his hands are so soft that he would be a disgrace to any military man. He never did anything worthwhile and would never have made it in the military. Sorry obama, but GOD is our GOD not you. We Thank God for all we have and for our Freedoms which we cherish to the point that we will fight to keep our Freedom. I certainly do not need to hear from you
Obama may not believe in God that America and the Founding Fathers believed in, but he will, and in the way he is going it will be soon. The God of the bible only allows who He wants into leadership so if Obama destroys himself it's because of his lack of knowledge, but if we as christian's fall with Obama it's because YOU have turned YOUR back on Jesus. There has been many people that are saying the christian God is dead or left the show. For them the show is only about to begin, and the christian that use the word as a group word much like being in a club, are only fooling them self. We only go around once in this world, but the one that comes after this is the one that really counts. Til America as the early christian learned from the old testament the only way to have God hear from them is to pray and repent as a nation of believers. Obama as Satan is lost and is headed to a deep dark place, and like Satan Obama want to take as many as he can with him.Save America and YOUR-self just pray and ask for that forgiveness that God is waiting to give to all of Americans. The rain fall on the good and evil the only difference is God is holding the umbrella.
"The rain falls on the good and evil - only difference is that God is holding the umbrella"!
Thanks for reminding us, Skip!
