Krauthhammer: No Pro-Israeli American Would Vote for Obama...
Townhall.com ^ | July 28, 2012 | Daniel Doherty

Posted on 07/28/2012 3:59:32 PM PDT by Kaslin

Nationally syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has never been one to mince words when discussing the president’s 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 they’ve “been in a coma for three and a half years.” Via Fox News:

Friday Lightning Round: US relationship with Israel

Despite Krauthammer’s misgivings about the president’s 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.

I didn't vote for him the first time. I didn't vote for his original template, Jimmy Carter, either.

No one deserves to be suprised at Barack Hussein Obama's hostility toward Israel or the policies this evil man practices; e.g., midwifing the Iranian nuclear bomb.

Somehow I think Krauthammer has failed to recognize that there are surprising few supporters of Israel among Rats in this country....even the Jewish ones.

We will be fortunate if the Jews don’t vote for him both in NY and Florida. They are as dense as Black voters when it comes to voting Democrat.

Mr. Krauthhammer did you vote for Obama in 2008? I contend the people that voted for him in 2008 were already in a ‘coma’. You are 4 years toooo late with your wisdom.... See I remember your snooty reaction to Sarah Palin and darn near gushing over Obama 4 years ago.

Exactly!! Krauthammer intelligence is so over rated!

They are liberals and only care about themselves and certainly not the land given by God to Abraham and his descendants. They are Jewish for holiday purposes only.

A 40 year journey for an 11 day trip shows a hardened heart towards the things of God and that mindset is still prevalent. However, God always has a remnant and still does and those moved into the Promised Land and will, again.

In my mind, Romney, aided by a GOP Congress, probably does more long term damage to America than Obama, opposed by a GOP Congress, can do in four more years.

It's not his intelligence that's in question here,it's his appreciation of reality.It's logical for a guy like him (or any reasonable person) to assume that Americans would support a civilized,Western nation like Israel.His error is his inability to understand just how far down the toilet Western "progressives",including those in the US,have sunk.

a recent Gallup poll nevertheless shows Jewish Americans overwhelming support President Obama this election cycle.

And knowing full well what would happen, the Judenrat told European Jews that homes and farms had become available in the East and the following 1,000 Jews were to report to the train station for transport to their new homes.

I think that’s an astute observation. I’m glad to see others adopting that kind of logic. It goes beyond the RNC soundbites to make assessments based on what the reality would really be with Romney and a Republican controlled Congress.

The one kicker there is this. Unless the Republicans get a filibuster proof Congress and Senate, Obama can still rule by Executive Order. And nothing would discourage that dip-stick from ruling in that manner.

Under that same scenario, he could also refuse to sign any legislation whatsoever, if he so chose.

The Romeny/Congress(R) would be as troublesome as the Obama/Congress(R). That’s why some of us were screaming bloody murder earlier this year when leading Republicans were kissing Romney’s feet.

Good luck now fellow campers.

Come back to earth. If Obama wins, there will be no GOP congress.
The party that wins the presidency always gains seats in the house and the GOP is only holding on to a very small majority.

So yes, by not firing Obama you are effectively handing the country over to the enemy and there’s no silver lining about it. People will suffer, people will die and the country may never recover.

True but we know it and it's not rocket science. He's in the thick of things and he doesn't know this? He simply is not what he claims to be. Remember when Hillary was tooted for being the smartest. Just say it and some believe it. Give them a platform to speak a few words to keep them WOWED and they keep believing no matter what you say. But they always reveal themselves at least to those who can't be wowed.

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.

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.

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 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?

seriously?

If so, I would like to hear how. If not, it is nothing more than pissing in the wind, verbal diarrhea.

It's insane. You'd think abortion (on which Judaism doesn't have the exact same position, but it's mighty close) was the most important thing in Judaism. How in the world did Jews manage to live in the US until 1973? Was abortion so central before then?

The Jews were chosen to represent G-d to the world. Now many of them think their mission is to combat chrstianity and secularize the world.

No. The establishment will be as they own you now. What comes down is all THEIR doing but since they don't give a flip about you - you need to vent somewhere. Get yourself a pillow - because we aren't listening.

In my mind, Romney, aided by a GOP Congress, probably does more long term damage to America than Obama, opposed by a GOP Congress, can do in four more years.

The problem with your thinking is that Obama does what he wants, regardless of the law, or what the Congress does, or doesn't do. He simply states a law or a directive, even when it has been voted down by Congress, and because of his illegal, Satanic power, it is done. It is obviously that vast amounts of people who should be standing against him, are very afraid of the powers behind him. They may be being threatened, as well as their families. Something is keeping people in authority frozen when it comes to stopping him. Even if we elect him out, it will be by grace if he goes. He is obviously not a lawful, legally abiding President, but a despot.

God help us, because if He doesn't, Obama and minions will undo us. The answer, first, is that we all must repent and plead for God's merciful grace and help, rather than His justice. Decent, God loving people should be calling for National days of fasting and praying, encouraging Americans to change our life styles from self centered indulgence to serving the living God. As David killed Goliath, and Israel won the battle because David believed in God's ability to conquer, so must we become, if we are to prevail. The stakes have become way too high for us to ignore our real need for God's intervention.

Love your tag line!!! Send that to various T-Shirt and bumper sticker companies if you originated the thought!

As for Krauthammer, I think he’s angling for the FEW American Jews who still feel a connection to Israel.

The rest of American Jews are hopelessly in the Obamatard camp.
