OBAMA DOES NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS~IF ELECTED NO WHITEHOUSE CHRISTMAS TREE ?
If Osama Hussein Barack Obama is elected PRESIDENT on Tuesday, I wonder what Christmas at the Whitehouse will be like in 2009 ? Afterall, he does not "do" Christmas in his household.
Liberals Against Christmas
HS RES 847, a bill recognizing the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith (you know, the stuff this country was founded on), was voted on and incredibly, nine Democrats voted against it.
Congressman Steve King reacted this morning to the nine “NO” votes on his resolution to honor Christmas and the Christian faith. The vote shocked Capitol Hill observers because votes on similar resolutions honoring the holidays of Islam and Hinduism passed without any NO votes.
Appearing this morning on the Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends, King said, “The [nine] naysayers didn’t make it to the floor to debate. I would like to know how they could vote Yes on Islam, Yes on the Indian Religions and No on Christianity when the foundation of this nation and our American culture is Christianity…I think there’s an assault on Christianity in America.”
The nine Members voting NO were Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO), Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) (FL), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA), Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA), and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). None of the nine voted against resolutions honoring the Islamic holiday of Ramadan and the Hindu holiday of Diwali.
Nine other Liberals simply answered "present" while another forty Congressmen, including twenty-one Republicans, didn't even bother to show up for the vote.
I know that I shouldn't be surprised by this, but it pisses me off, anyway.
Anyone who doesn't think that there's a war against Christmas - and a war against Christianity - in America, need only look to Congress for leadership.
