Barack Obama Speaks Hebrew

9/18/2009 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

... well, some Hebrew.



To commemorate the Jewish new year, President Obama released a special Rosh Hashanah message today ... and flexed his Jew-lingual skills in the process.

How do you say "jackass" in Hebrew?

Sorry #38 - I meant #37 ...

52. Hmmm, wonder how you say "TOOL" in Hebrew?
We'll be waiting Mr. President for you to do a shout out to Baby Jesus on December 25th. {{{{begin holding breath now}}}}
#38, you're pathetic by the way. Find something to give yourself a genuine ego boost rather than latching onto your brotherhood.

I think the word for Jackass in Hebrew is the same as in English: Obama. (The feminine form would be Pelosi)

who has the facts? ME    

fed up -
you little rush lovin racist you...
that whole story has been debunked by the police dept in Bellevue as NOT racially motivated.
Kids beat up kids of different races on school buses EVERY DAY in this country.
Were you at the lynchings in your white sheet of the poor black men who were hanged for even LOOKING at white girls?
You are the reason the left believes that most of Obama's detractors are racist - thanks for proving it!!

Fan Since 2007!!!    

Another Intlligent Black Man,

Time to grow up and give it a rest, Bro,

You didn't even listen to your own messiah when he stated that not all the criticism against him was race based. People throw the race card because they know they've lost the argument...

I think it was very nice of him to wish the Jewish and Zionists a Happy New Year, Rosh Hashanah. I wish he had been nicer and more supportive of Benjamin Netanyahu when he was here. It isn't fair to ask Israel to give back the West Bank or any part of Israel. God gave them the land and it belongs to them.
Happy New Year * Rosh Hashanah to you all! Shalom

since the president isn't even black - instead HALF white and HALF black (morever, it was his white relatives who raised him) your attempt to write off anybody who disagrees with his POLICIES as being racist is simply absurd. Why not put on your thinkin' cap a minute - I know it's a stretch but believe you can do it - think about how utterly ridiculous that notion is. A vast number of Americans (including a bunch of white devils) voted him in. Deal with it. Stop crying racism all the time - you make me YAWN with your simpleton thinking.
