Malia and Sasha Obama have it right, let’s ax the turkey event.

Watch Doug Wead talk about this tomorrow on CBS Morning News at 7:30 AM.

Here he responds to the recent criticism of Malia and Sasha at the White House Thanksgiving Turkey Pardoning Ceremony.


Whatever criticism one might have for the President and First Lady no one can really lay a finger on them as parents.  They have been the best we have seen in modern times, balancing love and discipline better than any of the more recent dysfunctional presidential families.  Many presidents and first ladies neglect their children for years and notoriously indulge them during their time in the White House.  This First Couple, the Obama’s, offer their children structure, limit their time online, for example, and keep their heads in their school books.  They don’t ignore the special opportunities for them to learn, including them on some foreign trips when they can but they don’t over do it.  I also like the way the President keeps his promises to his children.

Saying that the Obama girls are being disrespectful for rolling their eyes at a corny, Turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House is rather petty.  We forgave the Bush twins for underage drinking and sticking their tongue out at the media.  We forgave the Reagan daughter for posing for Playboy.  I think we can all give the Obama girls a pass for their honest reaction to an anachronistic White House ceremony that deserved the ax long ago.

One thought on “Malia and Sasha Obama have it right, let’s ax the turkey event.

  1. USA is #2…!!!

    “There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it: We’re no longer
    No. 1. Today, we’re No. 2. Yes, it’s official. The Chinese economy just
    overtook the United States economy to become the largest in the world.
    For the first time since Ulysses S. Grant was president, America is not
    the leading economic power on the planet.”

    Red China is our most dangerous enemy today! THINK what the NOW #1 economic power in the world, under a communist dictatorship, can do to US (bomber planes, missiles, atomic bombs, militarily weapons, etc. IN THE THOUSANDS will place little burden to the #1 Economy in the world today — Red China)!

    However, instead of exposing THIS DIRE situation, the zionist owned media in USA PLASTERS ALL OVER THE MEDIA a bunch of turban wearing, flea-bitten bearded Muslim extremists — ISIS — as the NEW and MOST DANGEROUS threat to our American way of life! What MSN fails to state is that none of these crazy Muslims have an Airforce, nor a Navy, or a mechanized Army — so how are they going to attack us…by building thousands of rowboats to come to our shores with their military “might”..?!?

    These NEWLY CREATED boogeymen play nicely into the hands of US-traitor politicians — whose only concern is the protection of the Zionist State of Israel (where such radical Muslims can have a direct impact), not the USA, where none such dregs have taken away our Constitutional Rights (but OUR OWN POLITICIANS DID in response to the previous boogeymen INVENTION)!

    Will there be a single candidate that will state this OBVIOUS SYLLOGISM — or have all learned the sad lesson that AIPAC (the most powerful lobby in America — The American Zionists that PROTECT Israel ONLY) get to vet which US politicians are to be elected, so kowtow to Zionist Israel’s dictates, again..?!
