Waxman: Jews vote Republican ‘to protect their wealth’
The Daily Caller ^ | Sept. 15, 2011 | Steven Nelson

Posted on 09/15/2011 2:08:11 PM PDT by danielmryan

Democrats working to explain the loss of a ‘safe’ congressional seat in this week’s 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 York’s 9th Congressional District is that the district’s large Jewish population was alienated by President Obama’s policies on Israel, swinging the heavily Democratic district to Republican Bob Turner.

Waxman did acknowledge the influence of Obama’s Israel policy, telling The Hill, “There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East.”

O-o-o-kay. Had Waxman himself not been Jewish, there would have been grounds to call him something else.

If what he says is true, then the Republican Party would be wise to roll out a big welcome mat.

>> “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.

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.

Henry Waxman is a far-left idiot but his lame and insulting ‘explanation’ of a Democrat loss in a special election in a congressional district with a 3 to 1 ratio in favor of Democrats is particularly revealing. Mostly because it demonstrates desperation and anger at losing a formally ‘safe’ Democrat seat in congress and indicates that Obama and Democrat politicians, even those in ‘safe’ (Democrat) districts are in jeopardy in the 2012 election. In short, the liberal house of cards is collapsing and leftist politicians such as Henry ‘nostrils’ Waxman are scared and, in his case, breathing hard.

These days, a lot of people, Jewish and non-Jewish, are voting Republican to protect their wealth, whether they are well-off or not.

Same reason politicians run for office. Same reason cops want to be cops. They gain special access to wealth for the one and special priveledge to break the law on the other.

How could anyone so ugly go out in public without starting a shrieking and screaming reaction from just about everyone? He should put a bag over his face and cut out holes for him to see — to spare us all. It’s the least he can do.

How about this statement:

Blacks vote Democrat to protect their handouts.

????

Would that be an acceptable statement?

Got to say when I first read this story I did NOT know or even consider Waxman’s DNA. But his recent words did remind me of BamBamKennedy's words to JOE the PLUMBER about redistribution of this nation's wealth and the jon stewart media swooned.... and the political arm of the democrat party dug up every zit and pimple they could find on Joe.

AND now WAXman states the obvious that every American should be considering...

This is really too funny.

Does Waxman really think comments like that are going to bring the Jewish vote back into the Democrat fold?

Waxman. Feinstien. Wasserman-Shultz. Frank. Ackermann. Levin. Weiner. Leiberman.

I wonder if these knuckleheads think that Jews are voting to maintain their wealth. And what’s wrong with that? Why should someone give up their hard earned money. Guess what, I’m voting to maintain my wealth too, Waxhat.

Someone has to protect their wealth and health..Since the democrats and determined to rob and kill them just because they are Jews..On the other hand we love them and would fight to protect every Jew in the world..I think the filthy democrats have dug their own hole.. Oh and BTW Henry I have never seen an ugly Jew until I laid eyes on you..You would scare a person to death if you came walking around a corner unannounced..

Waxman joins George Soros as another anti-semitic Jew.

Waxman is schizoid in that when fellow Jews were backing Obozo, they were good people. Now they’re greedy schmucks?
Can’t have it both ways.

Actually it really is more complicated than that. When there was NO fury about keeping the Ten Commandants within the public square, there was more than 'self loathing' happening.

I guess this just proves, what many of us have thought all along and that is that many Democrats are antisemitic and racists.

When push comes to shove, Dem's just want power and don't really care who they have to insult or cheat as long as they get the power they want.

Considering how high the Black unemployment is, the youth unemployment, and then considering how much the US Democratic party has lined up against Israel since Jimmy Carter was President, I am amazed that the Democratic Party has any kind of support base at all.
