(Published on November 25, 2011 by Joel Siegel) – Critics of President Obama felt little holiday cheer after the president did not thank God in his Thanksgiving-themed weekly Internet address. They immediately took to Twitter and the Internet to voice anger and disbelief.
“Holy cow! Is that one screwed up or what?” columnist Sherman Frederick of the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote in a Thanksgiving-morning blog post.
“Somebody ought to remind Obama (and his speechwriter) that when Americans sit down around a meal today and give thanks, they give thanks to God.”
Over on the website of Fox News Radio, radio host Todd Starnes also took issue. ”His remarks were void of any religious references, although Thanksgiving is a holiday traditionally steeped in giving thanks and praise to God,” Starnes wrote.
The popular website of London’s Daily Mail has taken the issue global, with a story under the headline “What a Turkey! Outrage as Obama Leaves God Out of His Thanksgiving Address.”
The President did thank God in a written Thanksgiving Proclamation earlier in the week.
