Exit polls: No major
Jewish erosion for Obama

Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 12:33:34 PM

President Obama's support among Jewish voters has remained relatively steady from 2008, exit polls show. National exit polls released Tuesday show Obama capturing 70 percent of the Jewish vote, versus 30 percent for Mitt Romney. In 2008, exit polls showed him beating John McCain 78 percent to 21 percent. The Solomon Project estimated that his actual 2008 vote share among Jewish Americans was actually closer to 74 percent — taking into account the small sample size. "Despite unprecedented Republican efforts and millions of dollars spent to win over the Jewish vote, Republicans performed within the margin of

Zero spent her/his formative years in a conservative muslim country, with a muslim, step father, and an atheist mother.
Those important years - age 6 to 10 - caused him to soak up the hatred of jews and he learned to hide it.
Israel may be vaporized by filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs, and American Jews will be co-conspirators, because of their support for Zero.
Self loathing Jews, including some of my relatives, are in the house,

There is a real schism, politically, among American Jews. You really can't say "the Jews think..." in any meaningful way. It is very split and most are liberal. But the ones who are not, are definitely conservative and they are influential also. Jews are not all one group voting 95% the same, like the blacks or the gays or (on our side) the Southern evangelicals.

There are Israelis and there are [western] Jews. While Jews have a connection to Israel, they will never electorally support those who defend Israel in the west. Maybe the fate of Israel should be left in the hands of the progressives, and conservatives should reassess their relationship to the mideast.

You can't. So all these illegal immigrants and grievance groups etc are going to be very upset when this country no longer functions as they thought it would....which is why they came here in the first place.

MORE BUSINESS CONTRACTION IS COMING BIGTIME IN 2013. What will be the democrats excuse/scapegoat then? Won't matter. The media will think of something....

Libs believe that Israel is just a thorn in our side. American Jews being libs feel the same way. Repubs always make the same mistake when we support Israel's right to exist and that mistake is "we think" that our Jews care... they don't. It's time to let Israel go. I'm really saddened to write this but if the Israelis are slaughtered and cease to exist as a country/people "maybe" the middle east will finally be at peace and a place that we can wash our hands and not worry about it anymore.

Defense lawyers say Hasan

FORT HOOD — In a surprising development, Maj. Nidal Hasan´s standby counsel team is asking that its role in the capital murder trial be modified, based on concern that Hasan is intentionally seeking the death penalty in his court-martial. The military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, ordered the court cleared so she could conduct a hearing on the matter. It remains to be seen how the motion filed by Lt. Col Kris Poppe and two other lawyers on Hasan´s standby counsel will impact the high-profile trial on its second day. Poppe, Hasan´s former lead defense attorney, has long expressed misgivings

In the “Oh, By the Way” department, we hear all too frequently about the turmoil, dysfunction and even potential collapse of the Republican Party, but as we approach the 2014 midterm elections, I don’t think any leaders in the Republican Party would trade places with their counterparts in the Democratic Party. With all the talk about damage to the Republican brand, angry filibusters, unappealing leaders, and a number of other maladies that the left always wants to see in Republicans, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that Republicans seem

We value the achievements made with Russia in the President’s first term, including the New START Treaty, and cooperation on Afghanistan, Iran, and North Korea.

As part of his ongoing campaign to transform New York City into what he calls “Fit City,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promoting “active design” for low-income housing developments being built there, including plans to prompt residents to use the stairs and rooftop gardens for growing “healthy” foods. In 2010, the Bloomberg Administration and other public and private sector groups issued the “Active Design Guidelines,” which promotes car-free neighborhoods, encourages “physical movement” inside buildings and “improves access to nutritious food.” The Center for Action Design was launched next as a resource for architects and developers

Federal officials are formally fixing a glitch in ObamaCare that lawmakers worried would effectively cut salaries for congressional staffers. Under a proposed new rule released on Wednesday, the federal government will be able to contribute to 11,000 lawmakers’ and staffers’ healthcare plans. That would close a loophole in the healthcare law that lawmakers worried could lead to a “brain drain” of talent and skill from Capitol Hill to private positions offering better salaries and more generous benefits packages. The amount of money the government can contribute to congressional staffers’ healthcare is no more than they would have received under their

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster.

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

British actor Stephen Fry called for Russia to be barred from hosting the Games in the Black Sea resort while gay rights campaigners handed over a 320,000-signature petition to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) urging it to condemn the law.
