Which One’s the Turkey? Obama Mocks Mitt Romney During Thanksgiving Turkey Pardoning of Cobbler and Gobbler
It would appear that Barack Obama is still lost in smallness …
President Obama took a swipe at Mitt Romney during the annual White House Turkey pardon event. Should we have expected any less from the most polarizing president ever? Obama pardoned two turkeys, Cobbler and Gobbler, but managed to seem hold a grudge against Mitt Romney and mocked him during the pardoning event. Obama told the audience he had one more “gift” to give before the country moved “forward.”
“So in the spirit of the season I have one more gift to give,” Obama joked in apparent reference to Mitt Romney’s claim after the election that Obama won by giving “gifts” to minority groups, Obama said he was going to pardon the National Thanksgiving Turkey, named Cobbler, and his stand-in, Gobbler.
“The American people have spoken, and these birds are moving forward,” he added.
Hmm, Cobbler and Gobbler best not get their hopes too high. It would appear that the turkeys that Obama pardoned last year are pushing up daisies. Peace, one of the two turkeys that Obama pardoned last year was euthanized Monday. Obama and Obamacare could not save the turkey and it may just be a sign of things to come for Obama’s second term.
Peace, one of two turkeys pardoned by President Obama last year, was euthanized Monday, according to an official who insisted the timing of the death – days before the Thanksgiving holiday – was not suspicious.
Rebecca Aloisi, vice president for marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate, confirmed that Peace had been dead after a weekend “illness.” But Aloise knew neither the nature of the illness, the manner of death, nor what had been done with the remains of the large, edible bird.
