Exactly Which Holiday Is That President Bush?

Exactly Which Holiday Is That, President Bush?

The Bushes throw character and conviction to the wind – send out gelded (not gilded) – xxxxxxmas Cards (hat tip:WND.)of which even Anthony Romero, the flaming bugger-in-chief of the seditious ACLU, might approve.

The outspoken (Evangelical Christian) Editor of WorldNetDaily.com, Joseph Farah was so disgusted with the card he received from the President that he threw his out immediately.  (Good for Farah; bad for Bush!)

Premier US Catholic Layman William A. Donohoe was less than impressed, as well.

What ever happened to saying, “Merry Christmas?”

As the two radio hosts filling in for Michael Savage today said, what is the point of dissing over 90% of the people (who celebrate Christmas) in order to appease the minority who are offended by it?

My take is that Laura Bush is not the brightest bulb in the pack and that this kind of thing is her doing.  Perhaps the President let’s her have “her way” in such things in order to keep domestic disruption to a minimum.

Whatever the reason, it is not good enough for me, Mr. President – and, oh, by the way, just WHICH holiday did you have in mind?  (Hint: If it is Christmas, then say “Christmas,” just like you have no problem saying “Ramadan” ESPECIALLY when YOU celebrate that event every year with Muslim guests IN the White House, Mr. President – something NO other US President has EVER done!)

Post Script:  On the same theme:  WND (Jewish) columnist and humorist has a good piece, called The Jewish grinch who stole Christmas.

Post Post Script:  The Washington Times has a piece on this subject, as well, in which (just as I thought) First Lady Laura Bush’s Press Secretary(! – want to bet that Mrs. Washington, Mrs. Lincoln, and Mrs. Truman somehow managed to survive without having a personal “press secretary?”), Susan Whitson is quoted lamely defending the deliberate omission of the “C”-word from the White House’s generic “Holiday Card,” as follows:

"It's a time when we welcome all different faiths," said Susan Whitson, press secretary to Mrs. Bush. "The president has an obligation to acknowledge that."

Another Post Script:  You know this issue is big when it gets top billing on Conan O’Brien’s late-night NBC comedy show, as this WND piece points out.

HI JG! I'm gonna play devil's advocate here. I just got done listening to some folks debate this on TV. Although the card does not say the word 'Christmas" there is a verse from the Bible on the inside of the card. This leaves no doubt as to which Holiday the WH is celebrating, but as our leader GW sends the card to many who are celebrating a different holiday. Personally I'd throw anything PC out the window and send a Christmas card, but I'd be much more upset if Christianity were left out completely.

hi, sk! I know you and I know where your heart is, so I will accept your viewpoint, while not agreeing with it. Luther once said something about how you can fight all kinds of fights, but if you are not fighting on the MAIN front, you are not really doing your job: The battle to castrate our culture of its Christian gonads is THE main event -- something on which the gays, the ACLU, and the Islamofascists are united. Bush, being our leader (and a professed beliver), is morally obligated to take a stand -- something he declined to do.

You're right, but I fear it could be much worse.....and may yet be. That's why I'm actually relieved that it included anything Christian. I find it odd that every attorney for the ACLU and other orgs use the 'what was the intent of the law' phrase when it might serve their client. Yet they fail to apply intent to our Founding Fathers and documents anywhere, most especially on separation of church and state. At least til now, they haven't been able to change our history books to show where our Founding Fathers were Muslims, Jews, Krishna, Hindu or any other but Christian. That doesn't mean they've given up.

Hi, sk! You are so right: It COULD be ever so much worse -- and WOULD be were Gore, Kerry, or one of the Clintons occupying the White House right now. On the OTHER hand, however, President Bush does NOT strengthen our hand by taking such wimpy, weak stands: First, he is showing that he is caving to their pressure; and, second, by his wavering, he only encourages the enemy within and discourages the Christians. The problem is the other side has no problems playing for keeps. Those politicians claiming to represent our point of view seem to suffer from chronic "Wimp-itis." -- gunjam
