WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have convened a Hanukkah celebration at the White House on the second night of the Jewish festival of lights.
The celebration occurred in the East Room Thursday, where guests recited traditional prayers while lighting candles in a menorah lent by a congregation in New Orleans that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

Such blatant hypocrisy! It literally takes my breath away!
When did muslims start doing this?
I know Barry’s not the first to do it, but there’s something very wrong about our president jumping in on and officially celebrating every religion’s holidays.
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely hanukkah.
So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your mara-juanic-ah, If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah.
Let us all watch and observe how the Obama’s celebrate Christmas. Particularly, let us review his Christmas message to America and see if he refers to “CHRISTMAS” or simply “The Holiday Season”.
Why? Is he Jewish, too?
Mudslimes like 0bama have always celebrated Chanukah. Just the focus of the holiday is a tad different. Jews focus on there being 8 days of oil to light a lamp. Mudslimes like 0bama have a different celebration, with focus on the Temple's destruction.
I wonder if he invited Jeremiah Wright for the festivities.
What a farce, Obama celebrates Chanukkah a time of faith, miracles, freedom and liberation as he is the most ambiguously religious and the most anti Israel president ever.
I wonder if this “Jewish” congregation is one of those secular ones that don’t believe in a higher power but place more importance in humanism.
I’m pretty sure Obama celebrates all religious holidays except Christian ones. Next up are Kwanzaa and Festivus.
What an ace. Chin jutting out, nose in the air, smug look, and Mooshell is her usual cheerful self. What a pair.
One of the reasons Obama started attending church wasn’t to find God.
Abner Joseph Mikva:
“He is a long-time political supporter of US President Barack Obama. Mikva offered Obama a law clerk position in his judicial office after Obama graduated from Harvard Law School; Obama declined the offer. US Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan was one of his law clerks. Mikva became Obama’s political advisor and suggested he learn more effective public speaking from observing preachers. Mikva said of Obama: He listened to patterns of speech, how to take people up the ladders. Its almost a Baptist tradition to make someone faint, and, by God, hes doing it now.”
Another of Mikva’s law clerks was FCC Julius Genachowski, Obama’s Harvard pal.
After graduating from Harvard, also magna cum laude, Genachowski clerked for The Honorable Abner J. Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and then for Justices William J. Brennan and David Souter at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Political Correctness run amok!
Zed's PR team found a way to work a "Blame Bush for Katrina" meme into a Jewish holiday.
He listened to patterns of speech, how to take people up the ladders.”
yeah I know what that means and I hate when people do that.
He couldn’t be farther away from the Menorah if he tried. What a brat.
Barry is not looking at the menorah , he’s looking at something or someone off in the distance .
Look at those two anti-Semites in the right of the picture. UGH. Detestable.
Exactly...its so funny that at my daughter’s 5th grade “Holiday Season” chorus event they will sing a “traditional Hannukah song”...but no “traditional Christian Christmas” songs.....the ADL spreads its influence nationwide...
But they won’t celebrate Christmas.
This is sure to piss off the ramadan crowd.
I’m sure the Obama’s will ardently celebrate Kwanzaa.
With nearly all of Obama’s inner circule being Jews, it makes sense.
Our Governor Rendell allows the Minor ah to be displayed in the Capitol Building — however, absolutely NO Nativity Scene is allowed!!
I dare him to celebrate Festivus.
Always arrogant. Dayum. He puts Mussolini to shame.
Ah. I hadn't thought of that, but I sure agree with you.
Like Wild Irish Rogue said, he's not looking at it either.
It *is* detestable. This is a photo op and not a very good one.
In the larger photo you posted, he actually looks distainful or is it hateful?
I bought a couple of boxes of gold chocolate Hanukkah coins at a salvage place last week. They taste just like Chocolate Easter Bunnies.
It’s just disgusting that we have those two pigs living in the White House. You can just tell, they’re just anti-semitic. They have no joy in their faces as the Menorah candles are being lit. I’m sure they’re remembering Rev Wright’s filthy sermons.

You saw that little “dig” in there too, eh? So subtle. /sarchasm - The gaping whole between a liberal and the truth.
Except for Christian holidays, of course.
Barry doea not celebrate every religion’s holidays. He usually skips out ot town on Christmas!
“I wonder if this Jewish congregation is one of those secular ones that dont believe in a higher power but place more importance in humanism.”
I believe Beth Israel it is the oldest Orthodox congregation in New Orleans. They were devastated by Katrina and are in the process of rebuilding at a new location in the city.
Some more information on Temple Beth Israel in New Orleans.
I wonder if their future Christmas party guests will be “reciting traditional prayers” (Christian ones) or reading the nativity gospel and standing around statues of Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus. I highly doubt it. These people are not only intolerant of Christianity, they are hostile toward it. How a Christian nation elected them baffles me.
Hannukah celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple after it was desecrated by the Syrians (Seleucids). He's sending a signal to Assad. Very subtle--we're just too dense to pick up on it.
Just like in the Garden of Eden--the serpent was the most subtle of all the animals.
I'm still waiting for the Easter message. /s
