Obama the First


What a path-breaking president Barack Hussein Obama is proving to be! Did you know that President Obama, in addition to being America’s first African-American president, is also the…

  • 1st president in 110 years to miss the annual Army-Navy Football Game.
  • 1st president to not attend any Christmas religious observance.
  • 1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.
  • 1st president not to stay in Washington for Christmas for the last 20 years. Past Presidents did not leave Washington for Christmas vacation until after Christmas. This was done so that their staff (Secret Service, Air Force One Crew, Limousine transport, Presidential advancing logistics etc.) could be with their families for Christmas.

Aren’t you just bursting with pride with this sui generis president?
H/t my friend Nancy!

Was he also the first president that didn’t acknowledge the National Day of Prayer? But he did acknowledge some national holiday for Islam? Up is down and down is up in our world right now…

1st president to not attend any Christmas religious observance.
No. Thomas Jefferson, a deist, was the first.
Was he also the first president that didn’t acknowledge the National Day of Prayer?
No. Again, Jefferson was the first. During his term as President, he refused to designate national days for religious observances, believing that it should be left up to each individual state.
Jefferson, who was often accused of being an atheist, didn’t attend any Army-Navy games, either. 🙂
What a horrible, horrible man he was.

Frankly, it is idiotic to compare Obama to Jefferson in all realms of logic. They cannot survive even the print on the same page together! Bravo Eowyn! You are truly brilliant!
