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.
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
