I remember seeing news footage of when candidate Obama visited Israel. There was one loud Israeli voice repeatedly shouting from the streets at him, ‘Israel is not for sale Mr. Obama’.

Obama actually visited the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as a presidential candidate in June(?) 2008. The visit somehow occurred during the wee hours of the morning (with very few folks other than a campaign team there to observe and photograph the event) and got very little attention in the Israeli media.

As president, Obama has never visited Israel and most likely has no intention of ever doing so. This is in sharp contrast to his visits to the Muslim world.

The “Jewish” vote? He’s got deeper problems than that. He’d better worry about the “American” vote.

Without CA AND NY in his win column in 2012 - he's toast. A loss of either one and he doesn't have a ghost of a chance in hell. It will be very difficult even with them.

So, he is trying to shore up his base in NY, given Tuesday's outcome. But, he has problems with his stance on Israel and the gay marriage thing in NY. Most blacks and Hispanics are against gay marriage ...

mmmm... not so sure about that. If every Jew in New York voted GOP, that would be about a 3 million vote swing (eliminating those 20%-30% who already voted GOP in 2008) towards the GOP. I think that would push NY if not directly into the GOP column pretty darn close. And whatever he did to alienate all those Jewish people surely would send others running with him.

I also agree, it is the fundraising and volunteerism that count just as much. Not just money, but time, bundling, phone banks, outreach at synagogues and senior centers all suffer and wipe out the enthusiasm. It will hurt. I hope it hurts. Would be great to see the Dems lose New York (or New Jersey) in a Presidential election. Would be great to see them lose a Senate Seat.

Remember, the LA Times has a recording of Obama allegedly toasting Rashid Khalidi. They refuse to release it or publish the transcript. They are hiding something and this needs to be made a campaign issue in 2012.

Here is the google search, pick your own source:

President Obama has repeatedly called for Israel to return to the "1967 borders," but that is a falsehood—there are no 1967 borders. What the President's plan would do in reality is return Israel to the 1949 Armistice lines...the borders that Israeli statesman Abba Eban described as "Auschwitz lines." The so-called 1967 borders are simply where the armies halted at the end of the previous attempt by Arabs to commit genocide against Israel.

From 1948 to 1967, Jordan illegally occupied the Holy City of Jerusalem until it was liberated during the Six Day War. The City of David belongs to Israel by every possible right—historic, military, and most importantly—prophetic. Yet now after forty-four years of a united city, President Obama is pushing as hard as he can to once again divide Jerusalem and hand it over to Israel's most bitter enemies.

Many observers have labeled the Obama Administration as the most anti-Israel US government ever, and they are correct. From threatening to withhold vital military and economic aid to condemning the building of homes for Jews in Israel's capital city of Jerusalem, again and again President Obama and his top aides and advisers have stood against Israel and for her enemies. Nowhere is that more clearly seen than in these final days leading up to the UN vote on Palestinian statehood.

Understand this clearly—every nation and individual that supports this plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment. Every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing

Here's 0 going after the Jewish vote:

And here's 0 going after the U.S. Western vote:

You get the idea. 0 thinks everyone but him is a fool. Put on a hat and you get the vote...what a dumb-azz!

I think there are large concentrations of Jewish voters in 4 key states: NY, FL, CA and IL. It seems to me that it is not just votes that they have to be concerned about but campaign donations as well.

I understand their percentages are small, but their participation is very high and therefore, they have the ability to still bring a significant relative number of voters to bear on the the count in those states.

IMO, the only state where a realistic swing in Jewish votes could make a difference is Florida, which has swung Republican anyway in close situations.

Your argument is certainly persuasive based on the percentages. It seems odd to me then, why, in election cycle after election cycle (general and statewide), there is always talk of the importance of the Jewish vote and candidates are consistently courting the Jewish vote. I’ll switch around to your side and argue that it may be the phrase “Jewish vote” is also a euphemism for “Jewish money”. Still, you always get those photo opps with the candidate visiting the Jewish nursing homes, etc.

Money, yes, but ‘moral approval’ is what they’re really after!

How does the moral approval of the Jewish vote help 0 with the rest of the electorate (ie: with the really big demographics)? Do other religious constituencies or demographics look to the moral approval signified by the Jewish vote? I’m not arguing, just trying to understand your point.

I don’t believe anyone seeks Jewish moral approval because it will get more votes directly. Such approval relieves the psychological anxiety associated with using the government coercion to achieve some end for ‘the higher good’.

Those embracing violence, such the Identity movement, Islam, or communists, relish Jewish disapproval.
