Obama is celebrating Chanukah on only one evening, lighting all candles at once two weeks early. Is this contempt of Jews and Israel ?

Two weeks early?

Lights all the candles at once?

Dear God, is there NO ONE in this stupid administration with a clue???

Look on the damn calendar. Call a Jewish lawyer for instruction on lighting the candles ( i think there might be a couple right there in DC )

Need no reason to have “a party”???? Since when is Hanukkah a big feast and celebration?

Did they remember to make a wish on the Christmas “wishing tree” while they were at it?

It's simple. The communist atheist is going on vacation and he wanted to get this mandatory photo-op/vote getter out of the way.

Quote from article: "Hanukkah begins at sunset on Dec. 20. Obama joked that everyone needs to be "careful that your kids don't start thinking Hanukkah lasts 20 nights instead of eight."

What a jerk.

It’s a signal to Iran to launch seven Nukes on Christmas Day when he flashes the red queen.

I saw this and thought, what a contemptible bratty child. It’s the same as the photo’s when he coyly places his middle finger in his cheek and pretends we don’t know that he is flipping us off.
This is one dangerous, evil bastard!

What a freaking narcissist! He makes a crass joke about the false date that his White House used to honor Hannukah, without emphasizing any reverence for the Jewish holiday.

Tell me why people stand for this monster! He is the most ungodly president this nation has ever had to endure. HE MUST GO!

Maybe.

Or maybe he's just an idiot.

Egad. How hard is it to look at the calendar? How hard is it to do a little basic research on lighting a menorah?

You can't be serious. I predict he gets 70% of the Jewish vote.

I really can't stand when presidents screw up like this.

It's not like Judaism is some minor cult half way around the world that nobody knows about. It is a well known world religion, and the handlers around the president should be very well versed in what a non-Jewish president can and cannot do, what they should participate in or not, and how it should be done. It isn't like these events are rare, they come up every year at least.

This is part of the job called "being the president" that Obama has no skills at whatsoever. As president he is representing the American people in a display of goodwill towards one of our religions. It doesn't matter what his own personal feelings are towards Judaism. He is the president, and that's part of his job.

The Friends reported this morning that he postponed his Hawaii trip until Congress votes on something that will hurt the country first.

School of Shammai! (well leaving aside being early).

But you might object, “No one has followed the School of Shammai for a thousand years!”

(To which, like the grouchy fellow in the Isaac Bashevis Signer story, whoever is advising Obama on the matter will reply, “Yes, and they were all wrong!!”)

Of course FR’s spell checker isn’t clever enough to flag “Signer” as misspelled when it follows Isaac Bashevis and should have been Singer.

He’s very, very evil. I hope those who don’t realize that will wake up soon.
