Obama the 'Savior' Says Republicans Hate Christmas

Say What!? 54

christmas treeTalk about politics of fear: Now the White House is saying that if you oppose President Obama’s position on the fiscal cliff, you hate Christmas. Yeah, the leader of the free world just called Republicans a bunch of Scrooges. Even though they consistently give more to charity than Democrats. But it’s not generosity unless you’re giving away someone else’s money, apparently.

What exactly is Obama’s plan, anyway? Keep spending until we turn into Greece? Last weekend a reporter from the White House pool asked about the fiscal cliff, and the President’s answer was, “We’re doing Christmas shopping.”

There are 23 million people looking for work in America right now -- many of them because of Obama’s liberal policies that harm small businesses and stagnate growth. And then he has the gall to say that the Republicans are the ones ruining Christmas? Liberal logic at its finest.

Even in the midst of a crappy economy, America still voted to reelect this man. Why? Is he the savior? Jamie Foxx seems to think so. During the Soul Train Music Awards on BET over the weekend, the actor actually said, “First of all, give an honor to our God and our lord and savior, Barack Obama.”

No wonder Mitt lost. How can a mere mortal compete with the lord and savior?

Also -- Obamaphones.

Anyway, it’s a dangerous precedent when we start assigning god-status to mere mortals. It clouds our judgment and makes us do bad things like vote for someone that uses fear-mongering to get them to oppose a particular group of people. 

What exactly is Obama saving us from, anyway? Jobs? Reasonable college tuition? Prosperous women and minorities? Methinks he’s the wrong kind of savior.

President Obama, love him or hate him, is a man, not a god. He will make mistakes (giant ones if you’re a Republican, excusable ones if you’re a Democrat), and he doesn’t have any superpowers or miracle-performing abilities. He cannot magically make money grow on trees, or forgive our debt to China like Jesus forgives our debt of sin.

God parted the Red Sea, but Obama can’t make the oceans recede.

He’s going to have to suck it up and work with Republicans to keep our country from going over the fiscal cliff, and not just name-call and say they hate Christmas. After all, if he wants to be god, he’s going to have to figure out a way to love everybody.

It’s what Jesus would do.

When did he say republicans hate Christmas because that was nowhere in your article. And those free phones started with Bush. Plus everybody in the free world especially with kids is out shopping for gifts.

Quote please. Oh wait...there is no quote because he didn't say that. What a bunch of b.s.

If you would take the time to research what was really said then you would know that your article is EXTREMLY misinformed. Obama had his children out Saturday shopping. He stated he was visiting small shops rather than chains because it was small business Saturday. A member of the traveling press asked him if this was his effort to Keep the US from going over the fiscal cliff. To which Obama stated "Come on we're Christmas shopping.". Which I'm pretty sure was him calling out the reporter for his snarky question and him saying dude I'm shopping with my kid.

This article made absolutey zero sense. I think I'm actually a little bit dumber after reading this. And, as a previous poster stated, "Obamaphones" started during the Bush administration. Derp.

Could you please show me where he said "Republicans hate Christmas"? Oh right, you can't. Because he didn't. In fact he was talking about his family doing their shopping at local small businesses. Your bitterness is showing Jenny.

And btw, the reporter asked him that question while he was out Christmas shopping with his girls, obviously he was trying to politely tell him he wanted to be left alone with his family at that moment. Completely within his right.

Wow, you are so ignorant and BEYOND misinformed! Talk about twisting words around. Jamie Foxx makes one joke and you take it as Obama himself believes he's a god. You seriously need a reality check sweetie.

Oh, Jenny! Why are you lyin' like your friend, Ryan?

Scraping the bottom of the barrel here Jenny, misinformed and quite frankly, ridiculous.

Jenny, I often disagree with you, but this is really stooping low, even for you.  Surely you don't really believe for one second that Obama said that Republicans hate Christmas, nor do you believe that anyone thinks Obama is the savior.  In fact, most Democrats I know reluctantly voted for him because they were not happy with his performance in his first term, but had no choice, given the alternative of voting for Romney.  This article is so full of misquotes and bold face lies.  You should be embarrassed.
