Obama's 'seder'

Dinah Lord cites a draft version of President Obama's schedule that showed up on CNN and asks whether it proves that Obama's 'seder' is a joke (Hat Tip: kmclay via Little Green Footballs).
The draft schedule also showed the president hosting Seder to celebrate Passover. The dinner was marked "closed press," meaning no reporters allowed.

One staffer asked, "Can we remove the dinner at the end of the day?"

"We put it on yesterday's deal -- so folks already know that it's happening. They'll wonder why it's not listed if we don't include it on there," another staffer replied.

The staffer who asked to remove the dinner from the schedule replied, "Apparently Jewish here and in neighboring states are now calling wondering why they have not been invited."

The dinner was not listed on the final schedule.
Actually there's better proof of how insignificant the seder is:
Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and adviser David Axelrod have other committments.
In other words, the two Jews in the White House who are known to the media are going to a real seder instead. It figures.

As an American Jew, I oppose the White House (a U.S. government institution paid for with public taxes) hosting any religious ceremonies (in addition, the idea of a non-Jewish institution hosting a Passover Seder is ridiculous, if not blasphemous).

If Obama asked to go to a real Passover Seder at the home of a Jewish friend, I doubt the White House would list a pseudo-Seder on their schedule.

This Festival of Freedom is an opportunity to remove ourselves from the mentality of unnecessary negativity. (Really, who has the luxury to indulge in unnecessary negativity?)

I think its a symbol of support for the Jewish People.
I like it.

I didn't vote for Obama, but religious ceremony are part of the office. It has been since Washington. let's give him credit where credit is due so that we can be taken seriously about the real bad things he is doing. I commend Obama for trying Judaism

Seems that your trolls didn't get the message that Barry's "seder" was a fake, a fraud - just like him.

What seder? Its as phony as the man who has demonstrated that taking Israel's concerns about Iran and Palestinian extremism seriously is not on his to-do list.
