    Something A `Republican' Michigan Governor Won't Do

    Expanding on the theme of "If you are going to take time to craft a holiday message, at least have the decency to recognize why."

    Unafraid to use their official positions to recognize that the holidays exist for a reason, the following state executives stepped up and named them. Typically accessed from their government pages, and some referenced from social media, here are some more non PC greetings sure to offend the freaks of progressivism.

    Alaska's governor Sean Parnell has traditionally had a Christmas Video out.  The newest expected anytime now.

    Titled "Seasons Greetings," Indiana governor Mike Pence uses "Christmas" no fewer than 6 times in three full paragraphs.  Add a "Blessing" or two, and we Definitely get the message!

    Florida's Rick Scott posts a "Christmas" message celebrating ".. a time to celebrate the blessings that are bestowed upon us and the birth of our Lord."

    My Goodness, Wyoming's SOS has "Merry Christmas" and a story to go with it right up on the state's website. The Governor, Matt Mead even posts an audio "Merry Christmas."

    Maine Governor Paul LePage also posts an audio "Christmas" message for Mainers

    Continued below the fold with Video

    Missouri governor Jay Nixon and his wife offer a very nice "Christmas Message"

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Donald Dunbar Have a Holiday greeting video to Guard troops that opens with a "Merry Christmas"

    Tennessee governor Bill Haslem Wishes everyone a "Merry Christmas" and a bonus "Happy Hanukkah" openly on the front page of TN.GOV. Also seen here in this video:

    Texas? Why Governor Rick Perry signed a law earlier this year, protecting ALL religious expression in schools, government buildings, etc. Called a "Merry Christmas" bill, it is essentially providing a hold-harmless to those who wish to express their "greetings" as they seem appropriate.

    Though my search was not 100%, i was unable to find a "Merry Christmas" greeting or wish from any Democrats holding executive positions, though some referenced Christmas events and scheduling.

    The sad irony... (none / 0) (#1)

    ...was when I drove some relatives to P/T Conferences recently, I noticed this a little too frequently:

    "I am proud to have authored the Merry Christmas Bill which allows students, parents, teachers and administrators the freedom to acknowledge traditional winter holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah in Texas public schools without fear of litigation or punishment," Rep. Bohac said. "When I picked up my 6-year-old, first grader from school and found out school districts and teachers felt pressured by political correctness to change the way they refer to `Christmas trees' and Santa and holiday music, I had enough. HB 308 protects schools and teachers from ridiculous litigation and restores common sense by placing Supreme Court precedent into Texas Law."

    "I have heard from many constituents who dislike that it is becoming less culturally acceptable to openly celebrate these holidays in the ways past generations have," Sen. Nichols said. "To me, this is a matter of helping our teachers and administrators feel safe talking about these holidays at school without fear of legal action being taken against them, and of letting our children know that it's okay to say `Merry Christmas.'"

    They had the teacher, and in some cases even the principal, correcting the parents when the topic of Christmas was brought up, calling it "Winter Celebrations/Break", "Holiday Celebration", etc.
