Krauthammer: If Obama Intervened To Have It Reinstated, How Did He Allow It To Be Omitted?(vid)

BAIER: Charles, we are just getting word from the Associated Press that President Obama personally intervened to change the Democratic platform language on Jerusalem and God. That is crossing the AP wire. So, obviously, it was important for the Obama campaign to deal with this.

KRAUTHAMMER: Well, if he intervened to have it reinstated, how did he allow his platform to omit it? And I would add, all that was reinstated is the language on Jerusalem. They did not restate language isolating Hamas, about no return to the '67 lines. And the Right of Return. All of that is left out of the platform. Quite troubling for pro-Israel community.

No. This was a game. It’s about Ohio.

Obama didn’t draw many people, apparently, at Ohio State.

Ohio is where the suit is regarding military voters.

I would lay cash money that Obama’s big needed state is Ohio. Reading the old threads on 2008, apparently it was the calling of Ohio for Obama that led to the robocalls telling Western voters that it was all in the bag and that they should not bother/get on the bus.

I think this was a feint. It went bad because of the base that Obama has brought to the Democrat Convention.

They already voted on the platform...Interesting that they can change it after the vote to accept it the way it was...

It’s pretty clear to me... It came out because he wanted it out, and it was put back in because he/they realized that taking it out could cost him the election.

They were supposed to have 20,000 muslims which I believe is the reason they ommitted God, (Judeo-Christian God) and the capital - Jerusalem. It was also the reason they didn’t want Cardinal Dolan until the hue and cry then they wanted him. This whole mess was all about the Muslims.

Great question by Krauthammer. I really enjoy his intellect.

Just like the nazis made good use of the Jewish anti-Semites by placing them in "leadership" positions within the Jewish communities.

It is because of what the RJC did, and how many angry phone calls from Jewish organizations and rank/file Jewish Dems who live in blissful ignorance of what the Dems really stand for.

The more they say “reinstate,” the better. Jewish Republicans are not going to back down and stay silent, either.

They're right. I've watched the video twice. The nays carried on the final vote. The two earlier votes were about 50/50. They needed 2/3 to pass. Vallagrosa ruled it passed by fiat. Just how Obama has ruled these past 4 years.

We can use this to pull the Dems off message for the rest of the DNC convention and beyond. Every Dem pol can be legitimately quizzed on it because it involves their whole party—especially tonight when they are trying glom off BJ’s faded glory. Up until now I thought Obama’s “you didn’t build that” line was the best gaffe we were going to get out of the Dems. I should have know n they would commit one en masse lol. Spread that video of the floor vote far and wide and turn it into an ad asap.

They are “Jewish” only to claim to be part of an ethnic minority and thus have some victim street cred, otherwise they would appear to just be boring white people using too many Yiddish words and pretending to be from New York.

The majority of my family immigrated to America in the mid 60s from Israel. When they arrived here they knew nothing about politics and were automatically registered as Dems. The last time my Mom voted Dem was for Bill Clinton, she has voted Republican ever since. She was shocked by this video, we still have many family members, on my parents side, in Israel. She doesn’t know what happened to the Democrat party, I told her what happened, its been taken over by Communist thugs, Socialists, and Anti Israel extremists, that is what happened

Does this mean that the Obama Administration is now officially recognizing that Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel? After all, Jay Carney refused to acknowledge that only a few months ago, and over a year ago the State Department removed all references to Israel’s capitol on their website as well.

That Kool-Aid Dems drink must be pretty tasty. Sheeesh.

I’m sure someone will break out a decibel meter and it’ll show it was even. Certainly NOT a 2/3 vote.

Sounded like 2/3 no's to me.

Why do over 60% of the democrats hate Israel and religious Jews?

Both of them stink. Romney didn’t mention the military people at all. He did not mention Afghanistan or Iraq either. That is a shame. I could care less about Obama because he stinks badly, but Romney is practically as bad.

So has King Barry evolved foward or backward on recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol? DemRats need a scorecard to keep up with their King who only evolves when ulterior motives are at stake.

The liberals’ version of God is ‘Government’ and their version of Jerusalem is the ‘United Nations’.

Thanks Mary. I hope all is well for you. Things are interesting this election. I just absolutely don’t know what is going to happen. Getting my news on Free Republic definitely shows that Romney will win. I just hope it happens. Most here swore that McCain was going to win all the way up to Election Day.
