American Jews Disenchanted with Obama, Democrats
« on: October 20, 2010, 10:25:13 PM »
American Jews overwhelmingly voted for President Obama in 2008.  It was illogical because of his negative views about Israel and his positive Palestinian views.  Now, they have finally awoken to the truth about Mr. Obama and his stance on the Middle East and all of the related problems.  He simply doesn't get it that those people have been bickering about the same little piece of land for 2,000 years and especially for the last 42 years when Israel took their land back by force in the war in 1968.  Every President has overwhelmingly supported Israel since their state was re-established after World War II, except Mr. Obama. 

Quoting from the article...

American Jews, among the nation's most reliable liberal voters, are likelier than ever to give Republicans a long hard look in upcoming elections, as enthusiasm wanes for President Barack Obama and his Democratic Party.

Unless Democrats succeed in rallying under-motivated base voters -- including African Americans, young people and Jewish Americans -- for the November 2 polls, Republicans are given good chances of winning several governors' seats and gaining control of one or both houses of Congress.

But here in South Florida, as well as across the United States, Obama's popularity has fallen sharply among American Jews.

Friction between the US president and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is partly to blame.

"Obama is perceived, rightly or wrongly, of having been less supportive of Israel than previous presidents," said Ira Sheskin, director of the Jewish Demography Project at the University of Miami.
