'My life is complete': White House holiday card recipients swoon hilariously

A Christmas card from “lord and savior” Barack Obama? Life complete! But better make that “holiday card.”

This morning, the White House tweeted a “sneak peek” at its 2012 holiday card. Yes, a “sneak peek” at the card that’s already appeared on the White House blog, in mailboxes across the country and on just about every major news site.

As always, thanks for being on top of things, White House!

In fact, Twitter users spent the week squeeing as they found Bo’s winter wonderland in their mailboxes.

Yeah, you and everyone else, snowflake.

Christmas card from the White House #Excited

Wow! It must have taken the first family forevah to sign all those cards by hand!

Author Terry McMillan deleted her swooning tweet, perhaps after realizing she wasn’t so special after all. But not before it was retweeted:

What’s this? A glimmer of self-awareness?

Indeed.

Money talks. The DNC can’t foot the bill to send these to just anyone, you know.

    I hope BO isn’t on the “menu” too?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      How do we know he hasn’t already been eaten?

      Anyone actually SEEN Bo lately??

  • Bumr50

    Watch out where Bo-dog goes, and don’t you eat that yellow snow.

  • yviemarie88

    Oh, look…another gift!

    Guaranteed Ozombies for the third term and ensuing dicktatership.

    Good grief these Obots are so far gone mentally. Even if I got a card from O himself I probably wouldn’t brag about it. After all, my grandkids will be paying his debt long after I’m dead as will everyone elses .
    My grandfather used to get “real” cards from Reagan every year. He was on Ronald & Nancy’s ‘actual’ list though.. I have pics of he & Reagan together to prove it. :-)
    (He was a 4 star brigadier general, USAF that worked as a domestic security adviser in the Pentagon & on various NASA projects under Reagan.) Some year I’ll actually scan them & get some good pics of a lot of his stuff from WW2 & put online. Reagan unlike Obama is a President that did positive things for the nation that will be remembered for a long time. 😉

    • Whirlwinder

      A 4 star is a general. A 1 star is a brigadier general. 4 stars retire about 230,000 a year. one stars retire at about 85,000 a year. Which was he?

      • irishgirl91

        I noticed the same thing, but since it was her g-father and she sounded civilian I didn’t feel the need to correct. The rank structure for each service can sound confusing. A Lieutenant Gen. outranks a Major Gen. but a Major outranks a Lieutenant. Don’t even get me started on the navy. Their enlisted ranks confuse me to no end.

    Unfortunately, the photographer got frostbite waiting for Bo to do his business. It certainly wasn’t any member of the First Family out there. Too beneath them to watch a dog poo in freezing temperatures.

    What?!? Not a picture of da’ One? I am shocked! Completely shocked!

    • justlittlolme

      LOL! The Pearl Habor photo, Rosa Parks photo, Moon landing photo and 9/11 photo ALL have O’Bammy’s ugly mug, but the one pic that doesn’t is for Christmas! It has a dog [cute as he is], but dogs are insulting to muslims…like showing the bottom of one’s shoe.
      Kinda makes you go hmmmmm, doesn’t it?

      • Catchance

        Ha! I guess it’s better than a picture of the White House Pig.

    • moonsbreath

      Cause Bo ate him.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      I think it’s Obama’s way of saying “my dog is good enough for a Christian holiday.” but i’m prob just over sensitive…….not., lol

  • Lord Foggybottom

    They let the dog play in the snow because Barack likes frozen dinners.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Anybody else wonder if Bo is an acronym for Barack Obama?

    • TocksNedlog

      Nobody else ‘wonders’ about it. The narcissist-in-chief strikes again.

    Mitt Romney sent me a Christmas Card with $100.00 inside!

  • lillymckim

    Did Obama send an application for Food Stamps with that card too?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I think if you got the card, you were automatically enrolled.

      • lillymckim

        Loved that!

    When was the last time it snowed like that in DC? Is everything doctored by this guy?

    • Lord Foggybottom

      That’s not the original Bo, either. He was eaten in 2011 after Michelle got on Barack’s ass about eating more natural foods.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        I’ll bet the DC animal shelters have many empty dog cages.

      2010.

    • Purple State

      Well there was a historic blizzard year before last? 200,000 people didn’t have power? ‘Member that?

  • SunnyJS

    To get a card you have to let Bo or BO piss on your leg…most of America should be getting one soon.

    • Katielee4211

      Hey! Be nice to the dog. As someone who loves animals, and adores her canine, equating him to BO is insulting the dog.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Katie, Sadly I think Bo was digested by Baraka months ago. Has anyone seen him lately?

  • Katielee4211

    You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if Michelle and Barack Obama find all the swooning from their followers extremely funny. I’m guessing, that while they find and coddle that usefulness, they really disdain them and deride their stupidity.

  • TocksNedlog

  • TocksNedlog

    To all of the giddy recipients calling it a “Christmas card”,
    Is the word “Christmas” printed ANYWHERE on your card?

    • Timothy Noonan

      And so what?

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        If it doesn’t mention Christmas, it’s not a Christmas card. That’s all.

        I think Obama’s is for an Indonesian holiday where they slaughter and cook dogs to celebrate.

        • Timothy Noonan

          Okay, none have been sent then in decades.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            Actually the last President to use the word “Christmas” on the White House Christmas card was George H. Bush. Not that long ago really.

          • Timothy Noonan

            Okay, still decades, two, ago.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            well sorry, I guess since I’m a conservative, I have a better grasp of History than most liberals. Plus I’m old enough to remember that Clinton send out non-Christian cards first. It doesn’t seem that long ago to me.

          • Timothy Noonan

            Your grasp may be better on what you choose to grasp…Reagan’s Holiday cards did not mention Christmas either. “With warmest holiday wishes.” The President and Mrs. Reagan – 1983; “With special holiday wishes.” The President and Mrs. Reagan – 1984; “With warmest wishes for the holidays” The President and Mrs. Reagan – 1985…No need to go on. Expand your grasp or realize you do not grasp things as well as you thought.

            What things seem and what they are two different things.

      • Timothy Noonan

        No and, just is.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Well it is slightly different in that Obama’s card showed a holiday meal that hasn’t been cooked yet.

      • Timothy Noonan

        My (edit By) your logic, so did Bush.

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          Bush never admitted to eating dogs in his biography. Obama has never said he’s even stopped eating them.

          • Timothy Noonan

            So what is wrong with eating dog?

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

            Apparently nothing. He shouldn’t be hypocritical and act like he has one for a pet. He should just treat Bo like a 4-H project and try to get him to market price and let the girls begin enjoying his cultural love of dog meat.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            As long as he didn’t drive him around in a kennel atop his car…

          • Timothy Noonan

            Exactly. I eat bacon but would not tie a pet pig to the roof of a car.

        • Grandma HeadInjury

          Not sure what you meant my that….

    ‘Secular’ Christmas Cards a Long-Held, White House Tradition?

    http://www.christianpost.com/news/secular-christmas-cards-a-long-held-white-house-tradition-65184/

    Clearly yes. Christmas has become largely a secular holiday. Made so by the very Christians who celebrate it.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      It will probably be the last year anyway. As soon as Obama has his Muslim Bro pals in place across the middle east and north Africa, he’ll celebrate anti-Christmas and behead some gays and women on the White House lawn.

      That will be after he has the White House moved so as to align with Mecca.

      • Timothy Noonan

        Stay alert and keep your head up, the sky is falling…

      Care to share the results of your exhaustive research that conclusively shows that sectarian adherents are solely to blame for increasing secularism and consumerism?

      • Timothy Noonan

        If Christmas remained the second most important Christian holiday, the modern version on Santa Claus would not exist. Jingle Bells would not be a Christmas song. Gifts would not be exchanged. Thanksgiving would still be holiday enjoyed for it’s entirety by ALL Americans. Decorations would not be present in stores in AUGUST. Nobody would care if Rudolf had a red, shiny nose. The miracle on 34th street would not be proving the existence of Kris Kringle. All of those were started by Christians and, now, perpetuated by Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Atheists, Muslims, among others who celebrate the secular components of Christmas.

      Nope, that’s your side’s specialty. Happy Holidays!

  • RanierWest

    I’m an enemy, so of course my family who served in the military from the foundation of America did not receive a card from Obama.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Is that a dog on the White House “Holiday Card” or just the menu?

  • digitalPimple

    tacky.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    nice menu cover.

  • Brent Guthrie

    …..and all I got was a lousy hellfire missle launched from a predator drone.

  • LightSabre

    These people seem to equate getting a form Xmas card from the White House on a par as receiving a vision of God. It’s becoming more and more apparent that black Americans as well as some white ones put Obama on a level with Martin Luther King. This would explain my first statement.

    Fifty percent of my large neighborhood in Brooklyn are on food stamps- African-Americans, Afro-Carribean, and Hispanic immigrants- who I presume are Obama loyalists. I wonder if any one of them got a card. Surely, membership in the EBT club must count for something?

    So here is what Bo is thinking:

    So Michelle says “Lie down in the manger for the Christmas card photo and try to look cherubic.” So naturally I lie down and then everybody starts yelling and they kick me out into the snow. How was I supposed to know she was talking to POTUS?

    I’m going to be really honest here. Once upon a time, I was married to a liberal who had a best friend that was a lobbyist….he got us on the Clinton White House Christmas card mailing list. It was pretty neat to get the card.

    And if I had gotten a card from Dubya, heck yes I would have FB’d, tweeted, and Instagram’d it immediately.

    The ‘beloved first family’s dog Bo’. I suspect they meant to say the first family’s beloved dog Bo…geez, can’t even get a sentence grammatically right as they are NOT the ‘beloved first family’.

    Wow. I have decided this year I can’t afford to send Christmas cards to my close friends and family. I wonder how much of We The People’s tax money went to sending these fucking cards. Well, at least it isn’t a picture of Obama sleeping in the manger.
