Presidential Christmas Addresses… WoC 2013

Different Eras, Different Presidents, Very Different Concerns and Attitudes

Ronald Reagan’s Christmas Address (video), as delivered to the nation December 23, 1981 – 32 years ago this week:

“Like the National Christmas Tree, our nation is a living, growing thing – planted in rich American soil.

Only our devoted care can bring it to full flower…”

By Marion Algier – The War on Christmas (and Religion) Verses the Spirit of Christmas Series at AskMarion – 23

In a world of political correctness and Christmas culture wars, Reagan’s national address is almost unbelievable! It is a breath of fresh Christmas air! What happened to the politicians like him who are not afraid to hold fast to the Christian faith despite what others think or say? No wonder almost everyone loved him, even if they didn’t agree with his politics. Ronald Reagan inspired people in a positive way!!

The Reagans spent short Christmas vacations at their Ranch or remained at the White House. 

President Ronald Reagan’s Christmas Address 12/23/81 – Video

Obama focused on himself and on his desperation to save his sinking poll numbers and his sinking signature legislation… ObamaCare this holiday season. Obama generally does not mention God or his faith in his Christmas or any speech and these days more people dislike him and his policies than do.  President Obama’s Thanksgiving and Christmas message and campaign this year was for parents to indoctrinate their kids and anyone else sitting at the family dinner table to sign up for ObamaCare… no matter how bad it is, while he and the family are on another lengthy million dollar vacation in Hawaii.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
