President Obama appears to be bleeding Jewish Voters. To wit:
Jews are beginning to untie their Democratic moorings, because this is now not the party of JFK, but of Jimmy Carter. That is Barack Obama’s unique contribution to the transformation of the Jewish vote.
A month ago in the suburb of Morton Grove, the Republican candidates were prominently represented at the Greater Chicago Jewish Arts Festival. This year, things were different: although there was still hostility from some, the audience was not remotely as hostile as it had been four years ago. Overall, there was a warmer and larger reception for the Republican candidates and their message than at any time anyone can remember.
Most Jews will vote for Obama, but American elections generally have been about the margins. And the difference between 88% and 60% of the Jewish vote certainly can make a difference, especially if that translates to other contests down the ballot.
Good read about the Jewish vote and the damage Democrats have inflicted upon Illinois.
Wait! There’s more! Don’t touch that mouse!! Team Zero to the rescue with a Jewish outreach! Uh…errrrrr… rut roh…. FAIL. Team Obama Invites Jews to Big Synagogue Campaign Stop – Misspells Israel.
Is-he-really serious about the Jewish vote? Extra dollop of hypocrisy:
Besides misspelling Israel, the campaign event at Keneseth Israel directly conflicts with an IRS rule stating that nonprofit organizations, such as religious institutions, prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign. But, who cares?
After all, he’s Barack Obama.
