The Obamas Tape ‘Christmas In Washington’

From an awestruck Politico:

Obamas take in star-studded holiday concert

By CAITLIN MCDEVITT

The Obamas shared the stage with a few stars on Sunday night at the “Christmas in Washington” concert at the National Building Museum. Comedian Conan O’Brien, songstress Jennifer Hudson, Nickelodeon’s Victoria Justice and pop sensation Justin Bieber joined the first family for the last number of the evening, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”

Luckily they taped "Christmas In Washington" in advance, since the Obamas will once again spend their Christmas in Hawaii. (Unlike President Bush, who often spent Christmas and other holidays in the White House so that his Secret Service detail could spend time at home with their families.)

But at least the Obamas got to rub elbows with some of their fellow celebrities. Which is the real spirit of Christmas, anyway.

But did you know that there was a National Building Museum?

In brief remarks, President Obama called on those gathered to reflect on the birth of Christ. “He was no ordinary child,” said the president, according to a White House transcript.  “He was the manifestation of God’s love. And every year we celebrate His birth because the story of Jesus Christ changed the world."

What tremendous praise from such a famously devout Christian. Obama grudgingly admitted that Jesus was not "ordinary." He sounds just like Tim Tebow.

The concert featured a mix of holiday classics and more modern tunes including Hudson crooning "O Holy Night,” Cee Lo Green performing “This Christmas" and The Band Perry’s rendition of "Mary, Did You Know?"

Of course they couldn’t balance the evening with performances of famous Muslim songs of the evening, since music and musical instruments are haraam.

By the way, do you think Obama knew the words to “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” without a teleprompter?

    For some reason I held onto hope Cee-Lo would pull out “Fuck You”

    I think Obama believes the lyrics of Mary did you know, were written about him.
    Mary, did you know
    that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
    Mary, did you know
    that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
    Did you know
    that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
    This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

    Mary, did you know
    that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
    Mary, did you know
    that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
    Did you know
    that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
    When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

    Anyway, we must be in full election cycle for Obama to deign to have to put on a public Christian face (oh those rotten Bible clutching bitter clingers forcing the Won to have to utter these words and go to church.)

    Glory to the newborn King.. sing the secularists.

    O come all ye faithful,
    Grateful for their country,
    O come ye, o come ye, to bureaucracy.

    Come and be sorted,
    Liberty is no longer rewarded.
    O come and have your voice ignored!
    O come and have your values deplored!
    But rejoice, for a new post-Constitutional era of Fairness is born.

    Scene I’d like to see in a movie:

    The setting: The oval office with an as-yet-unnamed black actor playing the part of president, rambling on to his aides as the result of the election come in and he’s losing badly. The president continues to ramble, lashing out at aides and generally throwing a fit…

    The aides slowly start quietly leaving the room and the president is left babbling on to his last remaining aide, Rod Axeldave.

    President: Rod, I just can’t believe it…blabbidy blah…blah blah blah…..

    The president finishes his whining, notices Axledave is picking up his briefcase and putting on his overcoat.

    President: And where are you going?

    Axeldave: Well, Mr President, for a long time now I’ve put up with your nonsense. The time has now come for me to find greener pastures. When they tagged me for this job, I was skeptical and thought it would be a monumental failure. You have no idea how horrible it is to be right like that. But I’m also leaving because, quite frankly, you sicken me.

    Axeldave turns and walks out the door and closes it behind him.

    Of course, the real Axelrod would never behave in such a way…but it would be a wonderful moment in a movie. Will never happen for holly-wooden people still see Captain Dumbass as the ever-incredible president who “fought hard” to bring socialism to a decadent nation and reform it into an all-equal utopia for everyone..where only politicians and entertainers were above it all. But still….it would be a great scene to see over and over. I’d wear a groove in my DVD watching that part over and over.

    Christ wasn’t the manifestation of God’s love, he was and is God.

    That’s a doctrine of all Christian faiths. No christian should get that wrong and not be called to explain his mistake. If it wasn’t a mistake, then Obama was speaking heresy.

  6. JohnMG says:

    ….. “He was no ordinary child,” said the president, according to a White House transcript. “He was the manifestation of God’s love…….’

    You beat me to it Kytross. Jesus isn’t a manifestation of God’s love. He is God incarnate, sent to walk among us and to provide a path to redemption.

    But it was no mistake on Obama’s part. It’s his version of “what the definition of ‘is’ is.” You would expect no less of a closet Muslim.

    Check out Matthew, 15; 7-9 verses to see what Jesus really thought of the Obama’s of this world. Mock Him at your own peril.

  7. Chrispbass says:

    Amen…Jesus is Lord GOD.

    Yeah…like most American families we’ll be flying off to The Islands for a 2 1/2 week vacation. The recession is over so it’s no problem affording the trip. Like most Americans, my emloyer can’t just go out and hire one of 50,000 other people to replace me so I can take the time off.
    Christmas means a LOT to me so i’ll be celebrating before the actual Holiday. And of course I’ll be celebrating it on the 25th too…just watch…
    I’m pretty cool…celebrities visit me all the time….it’s like a show on MTV or something….so yea…vote for me. Guess i’ll see y’all on the beach!

    Now you know why CONAN O’BRIEN consistently makes Republican jokes night after night, despite a treasure trove of gaffes, follies, mistakes, stupid quotes, golf course/vacation trips, falling teleprompters, banging his head on Air Force 1’s doorway, getting locked out of the White House and can’t find his way back in, lighting ALL the candles on the Menorah, giving speech DVDs away in the wrong format….etc. but every night its:

    “Did you hear the one about Michele Bachmann?”

    Now that he is on TBS, he is just a shadow of his former self.

    Faithful Muslim Obama still won’t say Jesus was the Son of God. He could have and saved his head by saying as we all are children of God. This is how we know for sure he is a muslim. Makes me sick when he reads part of the Koran he uses a middle-eastern accent with his nose high in the air.

    Obama did not thank God in his Thanksgiving Speech, instead telling his gratitude for football.
