Today, with his two daughters by his side, President Barack Obama pardoned a turkey. Contrary to popular opinion, it was not Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid or a myriad of other liberal Democrats in the Congress who were the recipients of the pardon.
Barack Obama acted decisive and pardoned “Courage” the Turkey.
Barack Obama stated during his pardon of Courage the Turkey, “that he had saved or created four turkeys.” Maybe Barack should have added that only $787 billion was needed to save said turkeys. The One even chuckled at his own joke. You know, it might have been funny if Obama was not actually making fun of his standard “created or saved” jobs stump speech line where Americans have lost jobs and find themselves unemployed at Thanksgiving because Obama’s policies have not saved or created jobs.
There just is something bizarre about the fact that Obama only seems comfortable when he is yucking it up. Obama would later go on to say, “there are certain days that remind me why I ran for this office. And there are moments like this where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disney Land.” On a personal note, Obama has never acted more Presidential than he did pardoning the turkey. He was presented with an issue, did not dither, acted responsibly and decisively. Who knew it would take a pardoning of a turkey to accomplish such a feat.
Maybe Barack Obama can pardon Americans from Obamacare while he is at it.
