I loved Koch for saying that a Jew who voted for Jesse Jackson would have to have his head examined. I regret that he endorsed Obama, for reelection and recently hid behind the lame excuse that he didn’t think Obama would turn on Israel as quickly after the election as he did. Why do Jews support politicans who promise to put them in the ovens next year instead of this year?
Maybe not meshuggah. Maybe blackmailed. That thug in the Oval Office has something on everybody.
I think he blackmailed John Roberts and has blackmailed a lot of other Republicans or potential adversaries.
“....a Jew who voted for Jesse Jackson would have to have his head examined.”
Jews and Catholics who voted for Obama should have their heads and souls examined.
Koch served his country in the 104th. Infantry Division in WW2. As mayor of New York City he was an abject failure.I worked for six years in Manhattan during his first and second term and NYC was a cesspool of crime and corruption. Crime was rampant,business’s were leaving, there was the Parking Violations Bureau scandal that resulted in the suicide of Donald Manes, Queens Borough President and Stanley Freidman, Bronx Borough president going to jail and the Bernie Goetz affair,( good for Bernie) that seemed to epitomize what was wrong with NYC at the time. It’s a miracle the city survived.
