Wait until Obama has his summit meeting with Ahmednutjob.
There’s been no annoucement or rumor of any such meeting, other than Obama’s “without preconditions” campaign pledge.
Obama won 77% of the Jewish vote in 2008.
Do people here think that 2012 will be very different?
All of my Jewish friends have taken the “Palin is an idiot” bait, hook, line and sinker. I find this quite amusing because Palin is among the most pro-Israel politicians out there. Some of the smart Jewish neocons like William Kristol know this and have been big supporters of her.
But obviously Kristol isn’t very influential in the world of American Jewish politics, or McCain whould have done better with them.
I suppose there is some percent of American Jews who don’t like Israel, and are fine with Obama’s policies towards it. But I have to believe that most of the 77% are unable to think their way out of the paper bag they are stuck in.
I’m looking forward to the 2012 elections for many reasons, and seeing how much this demographic and their vote changes is one of them.
It’s very hard to understand why Jews vote Democratic in such overwhelming numbers. They are not affirmative action beneficiaries. They pay a lot of taxes, and don’t take many services. The GOP has never treated them badly. Nixon was a great friend of Israel. So was Reagan. In contrast Carter is a great enemy of Israel.
I don’t get it. Evidently many others do not either, which is why Dennis Prager wrote a whole book on the topic, a book I have not yet read, unfortunately.
