Innocent enough, right? But when you open it, the message is all political.
If it wasn't for the fact that many people who had health care until they just lost it because of Obamacare, the contents of Moochelle's delusional e-mail would be a good joke...a funny one at that. But I think a lot of people are spending this Thanksgiving wondering if it might be their last, because Obama took their health care away.Friend --
Barack and I have so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, and that includes people like you who've been by our side, working for change right from the beginning.
Because of your hard work, passion, and dedication, we have accomplished so much over this past year. We've continued to create jobs and rebuild our economy. We've cut carbon pollution so we can preserve our environment. We've witnessed historic victories for equality across the country, all the way to the Supreme Court. And soon, millions of Americans will finally have access to quality, affordable health care -- many for the first time.
Before we all celebrate with our personal traditions tomorrow, I want to start a new one -- I'm hoping that you'll take a moment to share what you're thankful for this year:
OFA will be gathering some of these notes and sharing them on BarackObama.com. I can't wait to see what you have to say.
Thanks so much for everything you're doing -- and from our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving.
P.S. -- As you spend time with loved ones this holiday season, be sure to talk with them about what health care reform can mean for them -- OFA has some tips to help get the ball rolling. (MIM note, this is a link to the cultish talking points I mentioned earlier.)
But I'm sure they want you to be grateful to Dear Leader you have all the birth control you want.
Contrast Moochelle's e-mail with Sarah Palin's Thanksgiving greeting.
Thanksgiving offers us invaluable time to spend with our family and reflect on our many blessings. In 1789, George Washington declared a day of national Thanksgiving for our new country to render unto God our "sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection."
But even before that first proclamation from a new nation, pioneers across America celebrated Thanksgiving as a time to give praise to God for full harvests and Divine Providence.
And indeed, America has been richly blessed. From coast to coast, we enjoy an abundance of natural resources, plentiful harvests, beautiful cities and our most precious gift of all—a people who value liberty and continue to stand as an example to the world of all that can be accomplished by a free and hard-working people.
This Thanksgiving, join me in a moment of prayer to give thanks for the thousands of American men and women in our armed forces who will spend Thanksgiving away from their homes and families, facing danger overseas to protect our way of life.
When we sit down to enjoy a family meal on Thursday, I will give thanks to God for the blessing of a strong and diverse family life that has taught me so much about loyalty, selflessness, and compassion. I will pray for God's continued blessings on my family, and on yours, and on this great nation of ours.
From my family to yours, God bless you and Happy Thanksgiving!
With an Alaskan heart,
In Palin's e-mail, there is history, thanks to our troops who keep us free and (gasp) thanks to God from whom our freedom comes from.
Meanwhile, the Obama's ignore our troops and God. Not surprising, since they think Dear Leader is a god.
Maybe Moochelle should thank all of us taxpayers for funding her lavish vacations and her upcoming 50th birthday party.
