Typical: Obama Uses Turkey Pardon To Take Shots At Romney
This is one of the reasons I say Obama is Not My President (NMP): his ability to be uncharitable and snarky to his political opponents. A president is supposed to at least pay lip service to being the POTUS, rather than always acting as leader of one Party
“They say life is all about second chances, and this November, I couldn’t agree more,” he said with a smile in the Rose Garden Wednesday.
Perhaps referring to Mitt Romney’s allegation that he won through “gifts,” Obama continued: “So in the spirit of the season, I have one more gift to give, and it goes to a pair of turkeys named Cobbler and Gobbler.”
Obama then proceeded to reference his campaign slogan, as the crowd gave a laugh: “The American people have spoken, and these birds are moving forward!”
While the previous references could be seen as coincidences, Obama’s next line was impossible to misinterpret.
“Now, I joke but, for the first time in our history, the winners of the White House turkey pardon were chosen through a highly competitive online vote. And once again, Nate Silver completely nailed it! The guy’s amazing…”
So, the president is wishing Democrats a Happy Thanksgiving, and to hell with the rest of you folks. Not My President.
The question now is, what does he do? The only thing he does well is campaign. He’s been a complete SCOAMF on everything else. Even though he cannot run again, does the Neverending Campaign continue?
Oh, and as Buzzfeed points out, Obama once again voted “present”, this time on the violence in Gaza (started by Hamas).
