Barack Obama: Only Half a Hanukkah This Year!

How many kicks to the crotch will it take for the Jews to realize that goose-stepping along with the Democratic party is bad for their health? Compared to giving a Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson, and to (almost) selecting anti-Semite Charles Freeman to chair the National Intelligence Council, and to his cancellation of an appearance before the General Assembly of North American Jewish Federations, and to his non-stop attempts to humiliate Prime Minister Netanyahu, this is not a felony, just another intended slight among many:

Officials in the Obama administration have decided that they will be cutting the guest list in half for this year’s Hanukkah party at the White House...

....while the size of the party may not be a big deal in the grand scheme of things, even some of Obama’s supporters may see it in the context of this longer train of politically tone-deaf decisions.

It's not as if Obama is trying to save some money (ha!); he's going all out on his first state dinner, and filling the guest list with those most crucial of all Americans: Hollywood-types!

...this first dinner is primarily a thank you to the Obamas' most important political supporters. ...among the Hollywood contingent asked to attend, are onetime DreamWorks partners David Geffen, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg; Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Michael Lynton; and WME Entertainment Agency co-CEO Ari Emanuel.

And of course, remember Obama threw the first-ever Ramadan feast in the White House, where he showered the Muslim world with unfettered praise. Guess he had to get the money from somewhere....how ironic if it were taken from the "Hanukkah Fund"!

Ironic, but not surprising, given Barack Obama's overt hostility towards Israel and American Jews. It'll take more than a cancelled Hanukkah party (or any of the other slights listed above) to sway the Jewish vote; my people are not unlike an abused wife, who takes the beatings in stride because she is so convinced that her vicious partner - deep down inside - loves her, and is doing it all for a good reason...
