President Obama thinks "Courage" the turkey would have been DELICIOUS. Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all!!

"I have to pardon a WHAT today??"

Oh, President Obama. 

I know our President is an "eye-roller", just by his sarcastic remarks about the whole "pardoning of a turkey" silliness that he was forced into. I can just see him moaning about having this spectacle. 

"Jaaayzus H., Michelle. Seriously? Is this actually Presidential behavior? GAAAH!"


"You know, there are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And then there are moments like this -- (laughter) -- where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland. (Laughter.)

I'm told Presidents Eisenhower and Johnson actually ate their turkeys," Obama said. "You can't fault them for that; that's a good-looking bird."
Obama joked about wanting to forgo the tradition and eat "Courage."
"Thanks to the interventions of Malia and Sasha — because I was planning to eat this sucker (HAHAHAHAAA!) — 'Courage' will also be spared this terrible and delicious fate," he said."

Oh, sure. President Obama went on to make the usual goodwill wishes toward our country, our brave and admireable troops overseas--but really, sometimes it's all about our President being a bit embarrassed and sarcastic while taking on the annual Turkey Pardoning.
