President Obama & Kids Pardon Thanksgiving Turkeys!

President Obama & Kids Pardon Thanksgiving Turkeys!

President Barack Obama and his daughters Sasha and Malia pardon the 2012 National Thanksgiving Turkey Cobbler during a Rose Garden event at the White House on Wednesday (November 21) in Washington, D.C.

The Turkey Cobbler and its companion Gobbler will spend the rest of their lives at George Washington‘s Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens in Virginia.

“They say life is full of second chances, and this November I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment,” the President said. “The American people have spoken, and these birds are moving forward!”

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS for Thanksgiving this year?

    I like the guy, don’t like the situation he is in, or the country is in. Step up and take responsibility. Volunteer and be part of the solution.

    @kathryn: It’s a Presidential tradition. All our presidents have done it every year. To the commenter who said the daughters look like Michelle get some glasses. The older one look exactly like her father.

    What’s unpardonable is the wanton breeding and butchery. And not just of turkeys.

    Is everyone inured to the irony of calling the annual ritual slaughter of tens of millions of innocent creatures “Thanksgiving”?

    His daughters are so beautiful and he is obviously a great father.
