Bush Christmas Address Praises Christ

Some folks threw a tizzy-tandrum when the 2006 White House Christmas Card did have the words "Merry Christmas" on it, even though it did quote Psalms 119:105:

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

President Bush's Christmas Radio address today should make the critics happy. It makes many ASLaNdians glad (except for the fact that we are at war in Iraq). Here are excerpts:

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. As families across our Nation gather to celebrate Christmas, Laura and I send our best wishes for the holidays. We hope that your Christmas will be blessed with family and fellowship.

At this special time of year, we give thanks for Christ's message of love and hope. Christmas reminds us that we have a duty to others, and we see that sense of duty fulfilled in the men and women who wear our Nation's uniform. America is blessed to have fine citizens who volunteer to defend us in distant lands. For many of them, this Christmas will be spent far from home, and on Christmas our Nation honors their sacrifice, and thanks them for all they do to defend our freedom....

At this special time of year, we reflect on the miraculous life that began in a humble manger 2,000 years ago. That single life changed the world, and continues to change hearts today. To everyone celebrating Christmas, Laura and I wish you a day of glad tidings.

Thank you for listening, and Merry Christmas."

Indeed, have a Mary Christmas Mr. and Mrs. Bush
