Based on that pic, if you want the car to be defect free, yes... you are going to need a polisher.

It borders on the impossible to correct a paintjob by hand. Have you checked out the videos yet? Always a good idea to get a feel for the product/process before deciding on a kit:

so I think what I need is:

microfiber towels/waffle weave/wash mits
some type of shampoo to get the car clean first
detailing spray and clay bar to remove stuck on dirt
polish and a polisher with attachments
and then a wax

let me know if I'm missing anything, thanks

I use the Porter Cable machine, I bought from Adams's. I got all the pads for Swirl and Haze Remover, Fine Machine Polish, and Super Wax. If you can swing it, get them all. The PC (Porter Cable) is really easy to use, without any experience ever doing this. Finishing touch after, includes Adam's Americana Wax. Watch the videos that Dylan provided the link to.

Also watch Junkman's videos on youtube. He has a bunch! I don't know if he is still an Adam's spokesman, but his videos include paint correction like you will need.
