Nationally syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has never been one to mince words when discussing the presidents ever-growing litany of foreign policy blunders. And, apparently, he has no intentions of stopping now. In fact, during a recent panel discussion on Special Report With Bret Baier, he seems to have taken his public criticisms of the president to a whole new level, essentially saying no one who is pro-Israel would re-elect Barack Obama unless theyve been in a coma for three and a half years. Via Fox News:
Friday Lightning Round: US relationship with Israel
Despite Krauthammers misgivings about the presidents leadership capabilities -- and unconscionable failures on the international stage -- a recent Gallup poll nevertheless shows Jewish Americans overwhelming support President Obama this election cycle.
While Republicans may look favorably on Romney's visit to Israel, another group with keen interest in U.S.-Israeli relations -- Jewish Americans -- solidly backs Obama in the election.
Gallup Daily tracking from June 1-July 26 finds Jewish registered voters favoring Obama over Romney by 68% to 25%. That is essentially the same as Gallup's prior update on Jewish voting preferences.
Although one goal of Romney's Israel visit could be to attract greater support among Jewish voters in the U.S., Jewish Americans have been a traditionally strong Democratic group, so they are unlikely to become much more supportive of Romney regardless of the outcome of the trip.
On Sunday, Mitt Romney will arrive in Israel where he is expected to receive a warm welcome from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and other Israeli leaders.
So who are you going to vote for then? You could right in Ralph Nader he would like your vote.
that Americans would support a civilized,Western nation like Israel
Many many do but they are Christian, not Jewish.
Bottom line - he does know it - it's just an attempt to woo them towards Romney. Now the jerk should have used something they are interested in instead of being deceptive.
Sad. My brother is going to vote Obama again. No doubt his wife as well, and probably their friends. I thought he had wised up. Obama HAS hurt him personally, financially, and will do much more damage. My brother loves Israel and donates, etc.
Krauthammer is right — lots of Jews are IDIOTS.
However, please, on this thread, use the word “most.”. There are those f us who get it. Don’t tar all Jewish FReepers and conservatives, including Mark Levin, with your generalizations... Some of us are ashamed at how sheeplike our brethren are.
Some people obviously never learn
Ah, thanks! So the old Kraut worships whatever evil is in vogue, I see.
So, it means you will vote for that arrogant, lazy, lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, is that correct?
At least we have some chance in Romney. In Obama there is none. A chance at life vs certain death? God vs Allah?
I think you’re being very foolish.
Ronald Reagan was the first President I voted for, and I have never voted for a rat and never will
I don’t believe that Charles Krauthammer is talking particular about Jewish voters. I am Catholic and I support Israel and the Israelis
re: It has become pointless to point out to the 3rd party or stay at home voters the damage their tantrum will cause.
There is no doubt. that should the Marxist Obama be president for a second term, the U. S., as it has been known for the past 100 years, as a nation of individual freedoms, prosperity, fairness, and growth will end. Obama intends to destroy our nation as he bows to the Marxist terrorists of the world. The only way to stop him is to impeach him now for the offenses he has already committed. There will undoubtedly be fraudulent voting in November, the likes of which no one has ever previously seen in this nation.
I bet most of these people that say they won’t vote for Romney, voted for obama and will again.
Just you wait. There’ll be plenty of “proud Jews” and “proud Zionists” who will vote for him because it’s dogma to them that liberal Democrats are the best for Jewish issues, including Israel.
I hope you are joking.
I no longer care what it takes, this criminal Pimp in Chief has got to go! He is a Traitor to the constitution and republicans who have caught him in endless lies need to step up and treat him as such. Get rid of this disgustingly deceitful POS now! November can’t come soon enough.
I wish I were too.
I read numerous times on this site regards impeaching Zero.
Some want to do it now, others after they vote third party and obama wins a second term, to show him, yeah that's the ticket.
The house votes on the indictments, simply majority.
If indicted (impeached), it then goes to the senate for a trial, with the 100 senators sitting as judges. takes 2/3 vote to convict and remove.
.The question is, do you believe in your lifetime, much less in a scenario where zero wins a second term, there will be a 2/3 majority in the senate to convict?
If so, I would like to hear how. If not, it is nothing more than pissing in the wind, verbal diarrhea.
I think it’s more important to them to keep the country safe for abortion on demand and gay marriage and no torte reform than to safeguard Israel. They have to be self loathing Jews to vote for this guy.
