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?

  • Jorie

    I’m glad Cobbler and Gobbler will get to enjoy their Thanksgiving too. :)

  • Tracy

    Too cute! The girls are turning into lovely young ladies! To the commenters, both of their parents are tall so, what do you expect!?

  • lolo

    Setting a good example!…well done, I’m starting to like this guy :)

  • wren

    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.

  • Charlotte

    The biggest one is a Michelle’s copy.

  • Ceara

    So he saved one Turkey from becoming food before he eats another. Makes sense

  • Tina

    Wow they look so much like their mom, and really pretty.

  • kathryn

    love this family! Could never picture the romney’s doing stuff like this….

  • Cb

    @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.

  • Stevan Harnad


    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”?

  • Marie

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

  • halli

    They’re growing so fast. Malia is legit 6 ft now and little Sasha is getting so pretty with those cheekbones! Cute.

  • A

    Their family is always so cute! Malia looks taller than her father!

  • Rx

    Malia–sounds like a jungle disease

  • k

    @Rx: it’s a traditional Hawaiian name..

  • kelly

    Who cares.

  • C

    @kelly: you. that’s why you clicked on it.

  • m
