That’s just U.S. Jewish conservatives. U.S. Jewish liberals, the majority of our Jews, continue to celebrate Obama for treating Israel like a punching bag.

I believe the discomfort the Jews are having with Obama will be reflected in the next Presidential election. Instead of getting the usual 4 out of 5 Jewish votes I will bet it drops down to 7 out of 10. -tom

What an insult to the usual treatment of punching bags. Punching bags are usually punched, not knifed.

Since there aren't any more “phone booths”, where did all these U.S. Jewish conservatives meet?

I just wish many more (conservatives) made it to the voting booth.

The Jewish and black vote are natural constituents for the Republican Party, and it's frustrating as hell to watch them consistently vote overwhelmingly Dem.
