Democrats Plan Briefings on Jewish Outreach
NYT ^ | 9/9/11 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE

It’s no surprise that the Democratic National Committee meeting in Chicago on Friday will include briefings on jobs and health care, issues critical to President Obama’s re-election. But “Jewish messaging” will be the third topic presented to top party donors and fund-raisers, according to a schedule obtained by The New York Times.

The session, led Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the committee’s chairwoman, and Ira Forman, the Obama campaign’s director of Jewish outreach, underscores a real but unexpected challenge for Mr. Obama. While Jewish voters generally still give the president high marks, some Jewish donors — a major fund-raising constituency for Mr. Obama and other Democrats — are resisting the campaign’s appeals over unhappiness with the administration’s approach to Israel.

Such issues are also playing a pivotal role in an unexpectedly close special election in New York, where the Republican candidate, Bob Turner, has used the administration’s Middle East policies as a potent attack issue against the Democratic candidate, David Weprin, once considered a shoe-in.

Florida news ping.

Debbie Wasserdork Schmuck ought to be ashamed of herself, if she were capable, for her unabashed worship of Hussein. Hussein is clearly the most anti-Israel occupant of the Oval Office EVER.

Obama to liberal Jewish voters: Just ignored how badly I have crapped all over Israel and send me as much campaign $$$$ as you can!

No need for outreach.

There is no problem in the Jewish community for B.O.

The vast majority of Jews are sleepwalking.

B.O. could nuke Israel and they would still support him. And blame Bush for it.
