In the meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more "about Judaism" than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.

"Obama ... stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it," Haaretz reports. "[He] wondered how come no one asks Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner or Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel [sic] about their support to Israel."

Similarly, he said to the group, "I [am] not going to tell you again how I even feel about Israel, but why [are] we still talking about it?"

He then suggested that he should not be questioned about his commitment to the Jewish state because "all his friends in Chicago were Jewish -

Obama knows about Jews the way Gargamel knows about Smurfs.

Based on what he knew about WWII Nazi prison camps that probably means he knows the Jews originated in Taiwan.

I was sure this was a John Semmens “Semi-News” piece ... but it’s not.

What an insufferable person.

Does he really know about Judism or, does he know the version that is taught in Islamic Madrassa schools? That would be a fundamental question.

Well, um, because they actually do support Israel? And they didn't attend a church for 20 years run by an Israel hating anti-Semite?

Well, I doubt this is true, since Obama really doesn’t seem to know much about anything except Saul Alinsky.

But certainly one thing is true: Obama knows less about America, its history and values than any other past president.

one could ask whether what he “knows” is what he learned from Rashid Khalidi and Jeremiah Wright.

I think Semmens has given up....I heard he decided it was a futile effort when people continually think the white house press releases are more satirical than the fruits of his hard labor. /s

He should have been asked for a couple of titles he “read about it” in. I’d bet the only one he could cite is “The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion”, if he could even remember that. But neither would I necessarily have expected these 20 “conservative” rabbis to be that quick on the uptake.

All he knows about Judaism probably comes from a 3 cassette box of Jeremiah Wright tapes on the subject (probably focusing on how "Jewish greed runs a world in need").

In fact, if Obama knows so much about it...maybe he can enlighten us.

Have to agree with Obama on this one. I think it's a ridiculous waste of time to question him about his commitment to the Jewish state.

Today he said he knows more about Scientology than any other president because one of his Kenyan ancestors was dropped into that volcano with the evil Thetas from Planet Koosbane.

He’s coming apart, isn’t he?

Worse, I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes when The Lovely Michelle learns no more trips on Air Force Two with 150 of her best friends and her dog, dressed like a barroom dancer in "Sweet Charity."

Obama’s narcissism is evident in his fixation on past presidents. Not only must he be exalted, he must be more exalted than his peer group.

He could easily have compared his knowledge of Judaism with say, Romney, other politicians, or even those in the media, but no, the comparison had to be with past presidents.

I know of no famous athlete, for example, that would dare attempt to compare himself to those of another era. It settles nothing and only makes them look arrogant and small. Obama possesses no such filter, his ego is completely uninhibited.

Our president exhibits a sort of social Turrette’s disease.

People said every time Clinton lied, his schnozz grew, and we know what kinda honker HE had. With this garbanzo bean, I think it’s his ears that grow with each lie.

Any time now, I expect him to flap his ears and fly off to his next party/golf date, Dumbo style.
