Wayyyyy down in the FL Jewish vote v. Obama, conservative group plays the Netanyahu card

A new Florida poll of Jewish voters shows that more than two-thirds of them back President Obama over Republican Mitt Romney. A national poll from Gallup shows Obama pulling 70 percent of the Jewish vote.

As with last election cycle, conservative groups keep insisting that Jewish voters will flee the Democratic president. And so far, it just hasn't happened. But they'll keep advertising. And the TV stations will keep taking their money.

So it will be with Secure America Now, which already got thumped by PolitiFact for a misleading ad. It's running a new one, according to POLITICO that features Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu warning about Israel's right of self defense. The ad, for some reason, don't feature Netanyahu downplaying tensions between him and President Obama on "Meet The Press," where he was asked, in the words of Mitt Romney, if Obama has "thrown Israel under the bus."

Said Netanyahu: "There is no bus."

Next stop: Fantasyland.

You see the difference in the poll numbers, between President Obama and Gov. Romney? Mitt built that!!!


Another website said Romney had moved up 7% in this demographic according to this same poll. I guess it is all how a reporter, who is clearly shilling for one candidate, decides to report it. Do your own research people.


Historians tell of another country who's leader subscribed to the same redistribution of wealth ideology that our President believes in. If memory serves me right, the Jewish people didn't fare too well under that regime. Wake up Florida! Israel needs your support! You have the power to stop President Obama from repeating history. The question is, will you? Stand up for Israel!


Please don't vote for this Socialist Antisemite!!!
Russian Jews vote for Republicans 4:1. Why are American Jews afraid to vote for the candidate who will support them not with words but with action?!


I often hear that Obama is great for Jews. Examples are given such as the chairman of the DNC is Deborah Wasserman Schultz, Obama's chief of staff is Jacob Lew, his chief adviser is David Axelrod. Romney, on the other hand, has no relations with Jews other than a few donors. As a Russian Jew, I'm tempted to draw following analogy. Let's say, President Stalin is running vs. Gorbachev. Stalin has a few Jews in high positions in Kremlin and he voted in UN for State of Israel. Gorbachev, on the other hand, has no relations with Jews and his relatives may have been involved in pogroms many years ago. So, who is better for Jews? Tough question. Based on logic of majority of American Jews, Stalin is better. Fortunately, Orthodox Jews and Russian community don't follow such logic.
