Oy Vey! Do we need to wait until Jan 20?

White House Hanuka invitation bears image of White House Christmas tree

The president and the first lady invited leaders of America’s Jewish community for a Hanukkah reception at the White House next month – but raised more than a few eyebrows by putting a picture of a Christmas tree on the invitation.

The message reads that the couple “requests the pleasure of your company at a Hanukkah reception,” written beneath an image of a Clydesdale horse hauling a Christmas fir along the snow-dappled drive to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    Well, it was probably more economical to use the one photo for all seasonal-based greetings.

    Surely the people who received the Hanuka card can appreciate the value of saving money when possible?

    I think we need to give the guy a break. He has less than two months left in office and he’s hard at work, trying to get in as many gaffes as possible in the remaining time. Under that sort of time pressure though, not all off the gaffes will be of the same high quality as you may be used to.

    So little time, so many foreign dignitaries shoes….

    Yeah, I guess I do need to give Bush points for saving money in these hard economic times. Of course, he could have saved more, and not bothered with a White House Xmas tree, or the Hanuka reception…
