President & Mrs. Obama Thank Troops, Encourage Spirit of Giving in Holiday Address

by at . Comments

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama offered a special tribute to those who serve our nation and the families who support them unconditionally, while encouraging all Americans to give in their own way in his weekly address.

"Giving of ourselves; service to others – that’s what this season is all about. For my family and millions of Americans, that’s what Christmas is all about," he said.

"It reminds us that part of what it means to love God is to love one another ... to be our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. But that belief is not just at the center of our Christian faith, it’s shared by Americans of all faiths and backgrounds."

"So whatever you believe, wherever you’re from, let’s remember the spirit of service that connects us all this season – as Americans. Each of us can do our part to serve our communities and our country, not just today, but every day."

Here's Barack and Michelle's address to the nation:

That's not exactly true. He has always talked about our troops. The Repulicans started running against him on the night he was announced the winner at Grant Park In Chicago. They started running against him that night and they are still running against him today. His ratings have been posted by the media every single day since the inauguration, like the gold rates in England. When would you expect him to start campaigning? Is he supposed to just let them keep running without raising a finger until November, 2012. Don't lie, please. There's been enough of that during this whole 3 years.

This Guy just never quits campaigning. 1st year he was in Office he would not even speak of what good these Troops were trying to do. Now he can't shut up. Romney - 2012!
