Is it any surprise that Barack Obama failed to mention the word “Christmas” in his final Christmas card as President?
This year’s White House Christmas card is reminder of how spineless and politically correct President Obama is. In addition, it is also a reminder of just how narcissistic the President actually is.
First, let us acknowledge the obvious. President Obama weaseled out and instead chose the generic, politically correct “Happy Holidays” slogan for the card. The word “Christmas” isn’t even included on the card, not even in the message. There isn’t even a Christmas tree shown. Only a bit of holly, however, is included on the front.
In addition, the Obamas broke with tradition and featured a picture of themselves on the card. White House Christmas cards traditionally feature a picture of the White House itself. The only other President in modern history to use a picture of himself on the card, however, is Bill Clinton. That just about says it all, doesn’t it?
Here is the card.
A very gray Obama is seen in the image standing next to first lady Michelle Obama, with now grown up daughters Malia and Sasha on either side of them.
The photo was taken in March at a state dinner honoring Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — the first time Obama’s daughters attended a state dinner, People Magazine reported.
Malia and Sasha “dazzle” in elegant, embroidered gowns designed by Naeem Khan, that are worth nearly $20,000. Each.
There’s not much of a Christmas-y feel to the card, other than being framed by Christmas holly clipart.
Fittingly, Bill Clinton was the first modern president to use a family photo on a White House Christmas card in 1993. You have to go back to Franklin D. Roosevelt — another Democrat — to find another family portrait in use.
The next time you hear a liberal mock the idea of the “War on Christmas,” show them this card. If liberals, in fact, have no problem with the term “Merry Christmas” as they insist, ask them to show it to you on this card.
We can take solace, instead, that this is the final Christmas card Obama will release as President. Next year, however, we will likely see the return of “Merry Christmas” on the White House Christmas card.
