Democrats working to explain the loss of a safe congressional seat in this weeks special election to replace disgraced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner have come up with some startling conclusions.
California Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman, a prominent Jewish congressman, explained that some Jews are selecting not to vote for Democrats because they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.
One of the more common narratives emerging after the election in New Yorks 9th Congressional District is that the districts large Jewish population was alienated by President Obamas policies on Israel, swinging the heavily Democratic district to Republican Bob Turner.
Waxman did acknowledge the influence of Obamas Israel policy, telling The Hill, There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obamas policies in the Middle East.

If what he says is true, then the Republican Party would be wise to roll out a big welcome mat.
Heh...Waxman’s an anti-Semite despite being Jewish himself. Too funny!
Waxman doesn’t like Perry? Well, that seals it.
If a Republican had said that there would be hellfire from the media...............
If you think that’s bad, just wait till the day that blacks turn on the democratic party.
>> they want to protect their wealth”
Hey, at least he’s admitting that it IS *THEIR* wealth.
That’s more of a conservative thought than *most* demon’rats will allow.
Nothing wrong with that!
Dem greedy joooz!!
Ahh... the ol’ “greedy Jew” meme...
Wow. Waxman will regret this and I can’t stop laughing. Somebody needs to mail him a copy of Identity Politics for Dumbasses.
And in what century do you predict that?
Waxman is a creep.
Libs love it when people vote their “self-interest” when that self-interest means more government handouts. Yet, they resent it when “self-interest” means people being wanting to keep their own money.
Waxman channeling Eric Cartman?
OK, so following the same logic, blacks vote democrat to protect their right to poverty.
Can you imagine the uproar if someone had said that blacks vote for the democrat to protect their welfare benefits?
Shame on Waxman!
Waxman, another self-hating Jew.
