Obama’s Thanksgiving address ruffles some feathers

Thanksgiving, as the name implies, is a time to recount our blessings over the past year and give thanks for them to God. However, some people just don’t know how to quite get into the spirit of the holiday.

John Jalsevac, writing for LifeSiteNews, noted that President Obama dropped God from his Thanksgiving address — for the fourth year in a row.

In 2009 President Obama made history when he issued the first presidential Thanksgiving proclamation that failed to directly thank God. There was an outcry, and Obama’s subsequent proclamations have made prominent mention of God.

However, as Ben Shapiro of Breitbart points out, his Thanksgiving addresses (as opposed to the proclamations), which he reads to the camera, have continued to eschew mention of God.

This year, the president said Thanksgiving is “a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.”

“Today we give thanks for blessings that are all too rare in this world,” he continues. “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.”

It wasn’t only the president who failed to get into the spirit. As expected, the crazies from the Left felt duty bound to offer their opinion of the holiday. Here are a few examples:
