Recently, Sarah Palin, the former half-term governor of Alaska, criticized this year’s White House Christmas card calling it “odd.”
She went on to wonder why the president’s Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like ‘family, faith and freedom.'”
Palin said a majority of Americans prefer “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.” With regard to the card, she added, “It’s just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House.”
And yet – Ms. Palin never mentioned several OTHER White House Christmas cards. Like the ones from GOP Presidents past that have no mention or images of “faith.”
I imagine these would raise Ms. Palin’s ire too? And yet – no mention of these…
Take a look:
|Ronald Reagan White House Christmas Card 1983
Not seeing much “faith, family or freedom” here….
|Ronald Reagan White House Christmas Card 1984
Where’s the “faith?” Where’s the “family?”
|George Bush White House Christmas Card 2002
A piano? Where’s the “faith, family and freedom”?
|George Bush White House Christmas Card 2004
Faith? Freedom? Where are they?
|George Bush White House Christmas Card 2005
Notice – the Bush dogs in the card. Sarah must hate that…
