He is off the wall. Mad with power. Even if you think this, if you are President of the United States, you don't say it. Read this story and then consider the gala event he held at the White House for Ramadan; I covered it here. And remember Obama's cancellation of the national day of prayer.
President Obama and the First Family were planning a “non-religious
Christmas,” according to Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. Ms. Rogers reportedly told a gathering of former social secretaries that the Obamas did not intend on putting the Nativity scene on display – a longtime East Room tradition.
The account was reported in the Fashion and Style section of The New York Times. The White House confirmed to the Times that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive – but in the end – tradition won out – and the Nativity scene is once again in its traditional East Room spot.
Did you know that Obama does not celebrate Christmas? Obama Leaves the Gifting to Santa
Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) tells People magazine in the issue out Friday that he and his wife, Michelle, do not give Christmas or birthday presents to their two young daughters.
Obama tells the magazine’s Sandra Sobieraj Westfall in a seven-page cover story that he and his wife follow the unusual practice because they “want to teach some limits.”
In the interview earlier this summer, Obama noted that they do spend “hundreds” of dollars on birthday slumber parties.
Michelle Obama told People: “Malia says, ‘I know there is a Santa because there’s no way you’d buy me all that stuff.’ ”
UPDATE: More on the "holiday tree":
"Reflect, Rejoice, Renew" is the theme for the Obama family's first Christmas in the White House.Previewing the holiday decorations Wednesday, first lady Michelle Obama said the theme was chosen because her family spends the holidays reflecting on its blessings, rejoicing in the company of friends and family, and renewing their commitments to each other and causes they believe in.
