Were you left off Barack and Michelle Obama's holiday card list this year? Fear not: You can buy one online if you have $175 to spend.

But don't expect a Christmas greeting. The White House has opted for a more politically correct reference to 'this season,' avoiding mentions of Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and even the made-up Festivus holiday.

'As we gather around this season,' the cards read, 'may the warmth and joy of the holidays fill your home.'

Despite the vague holiday message, at least a dozen eBay auctions have offered the cards for sale this week, and half of them have found buyers.


from the comment section....Of course Obama doesn't have the word "Christmas" on those cards. "Happy Ramadan," yes, "Merry Christmas," no.

Expect sales to be a bit on the slow side, unless the sellers accept EBT cards as payment.

Both Christmas cards I received from President  Bush avoided the word “Christmas”, settling instead for Holiday and Season of Goodwill, - not much different than what you may see on most of the Christmas Cards you would pick up. I do think such wording is the norm for cards coming from the Whitehouse -  BUT, both cards also had inscribed Bible verses.
 
Christmas 2001
Thy Face , Lord Do I Seek; I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.   
Psalm: 27:8.13

Christmas 2000   (President Elect)
And You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all of your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13

Well, at least the White House as displayed is flying an American flag.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I'm surprised they don't depict the doggies peeing on the White House.   :whistle:

I'm surprised "Allahu Akbar" wasn't on the card.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
