(snip) "Referring to the belief that God decides during the Jewish New Year who shall live and who shall die, Obama told the rebs, We are Gods partners in matters of life and death.
In response to this statement I would like to make a subtle theological point: No, were not." (snip)

this is the first I've heard of this remark. It's right up there with "being punished with a baby."
This guy is just plain scary.
Maybe Obama’s vision is that God creates ‘em and we off ‘em.
That’s weird—I thought he considered himself God. How can you be your own partner?
I hadn't heard it either.
"...partners???" Excuse me? A "partner" is an equal. Scary is right.
Obama told the rebs, We are Gods partners in matters of life and death.
Not with me you’re not.
Obama can’t lead a People that refuse to follow him. I will not, under any circumstances, be forced to follow a two faced lying lib, white hating socialist such this bastard.
it seems to be a quote or a misquote from a traditional Jewish prayer.
It would be nice to see this remark in context before unleash the full wrath of my deadly keyboard on the subject.
Sumbich buford that's a good point.
Right. Well, since he was speaking to Jews and quoting a Jewish prayer, I thought it might make sense to get it in context.
I understand. It’s that I’m shell shocked at the stuff that comes out his mouth.
Apparently, Obama is a duality, not a trinity...
I followed the link on Klavin’s page to Politico and from there the link to the rabi’s blog. Here is the message posted there now:
“My lack of tech literacy results in a huge mistake — apologies to all for my tweets this afternoon. They have been deleted.”
Trying to track down the original source of Obama’s quote via web searches, I came across a post by a commenter who said “The thing that God and Obama have in common is that neither one of them have a birth certificate”
I thought it was cute.
I find that hard to believe.
That remark is just plain freaky. It's one of those lines that you read about in history books and ask yourself, "how could people not know what he was up to?"
These people have to be stopped.
I don't guess we'll ever know for sure anymore, as the records have been deleted.
Jeebus, do you mean that conservatives and libertarians can read Twitter? Why don't people explain these things to me! I'll delete those tweets immediately!
I like your interpretation, I think it’s pretty accurate...except maybe the part where the rabi exclaims ‘jeebus!’ ;)
See Michelle, I told you that we had plenty of space to put all of the old and worthless Americans and worthless depressed and disabled veterans in and get them out of the way. We could put about 50 million of them in that big hole. Then, we can use their estate taxes to fund the 40 million former illegals, who are now our voters and needing free healthcare.
Obama is already dead and should worry about saving his own soul from such death and condemnation.
He may choose to kill or to grace at will, it makes him not God’s partner but instrument for God’s rhetoric.
Obama should fear what he wishes for in this.
By the way, this is in line with Mohammedian “interpretership” of GOd... and can we also mention that Attorney in Latin means appointed representative...
God rebuked lawyers as far as I know.
He is embracing strange arrogant rhetoric of the suicide bomber.
Leftist Christianity has no connection to the Bible. They are merely pushing a leftist political agenda using bits of religious sounding language. They hate the God of the Bible.
I believe Limbaugh uttered that same phrase a few weeks back... Of course it doesn’t take away from the quote at all.
I’m not much of a Limbaugh fan although I can say that sometimes he brings clarity to smoke and mirror discussions.
I think the comment stands out in my mind when Obama says it because I don’t see leadership traits in him. It’s always a different story given to a different audience. I know that public speakers must accommodate their audiences - but it’s as though there is no actual Obama. There is a colossal ego of unimaginable proportions and a desire to manipulate or stampede people rather than lead them. If Limbaugh had or has the same character flaws, I wouldn’t care because he is just a radio guy. Obama has too much influence over my life already and he wants much much more. MUCH much more.
Agree with everything you posted, but I was referring to the following quote: The thing that God and Obama have in common is that neither one of them have a birth certificate
Limbaugh said that a few weeks back now (one of the few times he broached the BC subject).
Ah...I see. Please pardon my confusion. I was born that way - even in my baby pictures I have a confused look on my face. : )
I could’ve been a little less nebulous about what I was referring to also, so I suppose I confused the situation to begin with.
Misquote. Nothing like this in the liturgy of the Yomim
Noraim, High Holy Days.
Thanks for the clarification -- I can't believe it's been days before someone bothered, but I'm grateful.
