Posted on 08/12/2012 8:33:52 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as vice presidential candidate shows that the Republic presumptive nominee for president does not reflect the values of U.S. Jews, a statement by the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) said on Sunday.
On Sunday, the NJDC released a statement in response to Romney's pick of Ryan, saying the moves was the clearest indication yet that Romney does not reflect the values of most American Jews."
"Ryan's signature budget plan drew the profound concern and even ire of many in the American Jewish community because of its plans to end Medicare as we know it, slash vital social safety net programs, and increase the burden on seniors, the middle class, and the poor -- yet Romney today proudly hitched his horse to Ryan's dangerous plan," the statement added.
The NJDC also said that what named an "alarming partnership" between Romney and Ryan "will further reinforce the reasons why such a significant majority of American Jews will be voting to reelect President Barack Obama this November."

Even as Obama loots Wall St., they’ll be voting Democrat till they die. Not too bright.
What “values” of Jews would we be talking about?
Their support for communists?
Barf. Straight from the DNC propaganda machine.
Willard should have chosen Barney Frank. He has alot more in common with him than Paul Ryan.
You have to pay to read it, or at least sign in.
There is no way this pick is against Torah values. If they are saying that the pick is against what Democrats believe in, GOOD. Dems are presiding over killing the goose because the golden eggs are getting smaller.
from Medicare to give to Illegal Aliens !
Obamacare has just stolen a TRILLION DOLLARS
from Medicare to give to Illegal Aliens !
I used to care, but I have seen enough, and I no longer give a $hit what left-wing Jews think.
re: “Ryan’s signature budget plan drew the profound concern and even ire of many in the American Jewish community because of its plans to end Medicare as we know it, slash vital social safety net programs, and increase the burden on seniors, the middle class, and the poor. . .”
Aside from the fact that the entire statment above is a total lie, just what Jewish values is this so-called “Jewish” organization defending? Governmental marxist dependency, supporting unsustainable government programs that are killing us financially and thus furthering that dependency, cutting ties to Israel, enabling Israel’s enemies to act with impunity, and disavowing Israel’s right to defend itself?? That’s what the democrat party advocates - I guess that’s what this group advocates as well.
“On Sunday, the NJDC released a statement in response to Romney’s pick of Ryan, saying the moves was the clearest indication yet that Romney does not reflect the values of most American Jews.”
If the Jews are upset, ............they can stay with “Recovery Summer” Joe.
...and the stated goal of wiping Israel off the face of the map by the Islamofacists (supported by King Bozo Obtuse and his Regime) supports Jewish values how?
US Dem Jew voting is schizophrenic and suicidal.
This statement about profound concern is nonsense. The profound concern should be focused on the fiscal cliff we are facing as more and more money is being spent by Democrats without regard to need for income.
Any household, local government, or country cannot continue to spend money with no budget, print money, borrow money, and change the target for fair share to increase the burden on taxpayers.
That irresponsible strategy and policy works until we all experience economic collapse. What, me worry?
Natasha Mozgovaya does not speak for all Jews. No one elected Natasha to do anything.
After the election there will be a break down of who did what.
I can’t understand why anyone would vote for more of what that guy is serving
NJDC == A radical anti-Zionist front group.
They don’t even represent the values of most Jews who vote Democrat, let alone “Jewish values” historically understood.
exactly what is teir vavlues, credit to the ones which follow their religion and they are our valuessocially but the average north eastern Jew coudln’t careless about Israel or being Jewish until it suits them.
flicking through channels and saw on MSNBC their headline.
Ryan plan endmedicare as we know it.
The elderly will fall for the usual election crap of mediscare.
This stuff is not sustainable.(period) So Jewish values must be to bankrupt the government and then lose these programs.
This “Jewish” group consists of a staff of 4-5 people some of which appear to be unpaid “interns”. This group is a joke! Nothing to them! Just another leftist PR group of Obama. They have “chapters” in 5 states. Maybe there are 25-50 people total involved.
They don’t even have ONE comment on this “story” on their site. So feel free to comment:)
I assume this is the “Israel is expendable” wing of the party...which used to be the “land for Arafat peace” wing.
I smell anti-Catholic bigotry in that statement.
U.S. Democratic Anti American Marxist Jews...
There, fixed it for ya.
Of course the White House celebration of Ramadan does. Give me a break. The Nazi collaborators are among the sheep.
I guess the democratic jews would rather get in bed with a closet muslim. Let’s see how that works out for them. The only life for a non-muslim (according to the muslims) is either death or slavery. Don’t sugar coat it, we all have witnessed it, we know it’s true, so why try to deny it? It’s US vs. them, who do you want to win?
medicare as you know it is going to end someday anyhow because we are Freakkin broke you dumb ass...........
Romney isn’t Stalinist or anti Israel enough for Jewish Democrats.
Democrat Jews are just like the foolish Jews in Germany that believed Hitler would never do anything other then rant against the Jews. My friend, they are not only, not too bright, they are dumb as mules!!! In his evil heart, Obama hates every one of them!!! Go figure!!!
The Marx Branch.
Because of the views in the Talmud, Jews are stuck with the selflessness-altruism paradigm and are unable to escape it unless each Jew as an individual gives up his social metaphysics and groupthink mentality and starts using his independent rational judgment.
I’m through caring.
Democratic Jew....enough said. =.=
You, of course, have no idea what you’re talking about.
‘Social justice’, by the way, was invented and promoted by Catholics.
Is it a Jewish value to gut the American people of every nickle they can get? That sure is an Obama value.
When will all these morons take notice that Medicare "as we know it" will self-destruct if it's not fixed?
“”Ryan’s signature budget plan drew the profound concern and even ire of many in the American Jewish community because of its plans to end Medicare as we know it, slash vital social safety net programs, and increase the burden on seniors, the middle class, and the poor — yet Romney today proudly hitched his horse to Ryan’s dangerous plan,””
Also Sprache Der OffenJuden - my apologies to Nitzishe.
Who appointed this pack of Libtard Jews to speak for American Jews?
It is perhaps apropos to here remind all that Ronald Reagan said he would reform Medicare to save it and the Elderly voted for him!
But in the Greater New York Metropolitan area you have a concentration of Medical Teaching Universities and Jewish people, so they imagine something about the distribution of ethnicity in the medical community that's not actually true throughout the nation.
Simple math tells you that the impact will fall heavily on Jewish doctors in that area. But in the nation as a whole it's not going to be seeming to target any particular group.
These people support Obama or any leftist that the DNC puts up. If the GOP put up a conservative Jew these people wouldnt vote for him because he isnt Jewish enough.
And these liberal Jews are going to vote for a closest Muslim. Kind of like “Jews for Hitler”.
By that they mean LIBERAL Jews who are wedded to the Democrat Party, no matter HOW the leaders of that Party treat Israel. Most of them won't vote for a Republican, no matter WHO it is, or who that person chooses as a VP.
What a bunch of ignorant tools. I am officially embarassed for my fellow Jews who speak and/or think this way.
First of all, in an aspirational rush to make some sort of relevant comment on a piece of news that is perhaps 48 hours old about someone they know so little about, they reveal themselves to be ignoramuses. This is foundational to the exceptionally poor quality of their argumentation, and it’s seriously annoying, to me.
Second of all, the very idea that there is one set of common “Jewish ideals” is flat out stupid. It is a piece of meaningless doublespeak that in my view, 0bama and Axelrod themselves would be proud of. There are Jews who are entirely non-observant, there are ultra-Orthodox, and there is every shade in between. There are Jews who believe that Israel is a vicious oppressor of downtrodden Palestinians, there are Jews who think the Palestinians are trash. There are Jews who believe Franklin Roosevelt was the best thing that ever happened to the universe and there are Jews who know that Roosevelt perhaps played a critical role in allowing many thousands of Jews to die in the Holocaust because he refused to allow bombing of the rail lines leading to the camps. There are Jews who think Debbie Wasserman-tirebiter are representative of something or other; there are Jews who believe Bibi Netanyahu is the prototypical Jew.
The bottom line is that this is poorly written, poorly thought-out, reactionary piece designed to repel Jews from Ryan and it probably WAS WRITTEN WEEKS AGO with blank spots for the name of the VP pick. And ANYONE who Romney picked would have “failed to uphold Jewish values” and the people who print such crap are idiot tools of this administration, arguably the most blatantly lethal to Israel and Jews in the history of the US. They can eat s**t and die as far as I am concerned.
Unbeknownst to me, National Suicide and Bankruptcy is apparently a Jewish value. /s
Regardless of how high the values of compassion, charity and kindness may be placed in Jewish theology and practice, they are not without specific, well-known limits. For example, the Rabbis teach that one should give charity generously. However, the further teach that it is forbidden to give charity to the point of impoverishing yourself. Similarly, giving charity to fakers or those simply unwilling to work, because you are depriving the truly needy while enabling self-destructive conduct. The highest form of charity is to enable a person to support himself (ie: teach him how to fish), so obviously, we are not supposed to promote the opposite, which is dependency.
Jews who are still voting democrat in times like these are no longer practicing Judaism. Their religion is liberalism.
owebama loves mudslimes and despises Jews and their state of Israel.
That so many libtard self-loathing Jews do not understand this is more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.
These phonies would say that if Romney dug up Moses and put him his ticket. BTW which “Jewish” values does Ryan not hold; the one about aborting yourself out of existence?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The only Jewish thing about the NJDC is the food they serve at events. Lox loving leftists don’t speak for Jewish values, just socialist ones.
Then why is it that the Jews who actually know the Talmud are the ones least likely to follow this BS?
