I am at a loss to understand the Jewish affinity for Obama although I can certainly explain it.
President Obama exemplifies a variety of attributes that draws those of the Jewish faith in the same way that a moth is drawn to a flame.
This short list alone will bring a majority of American Jews into the voting fold every time. No matter what!
* Member of the church of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, good friend of Jew hater Louis Farrakhan.
* No friend of Israel who the President feels should revert back to the pre-1967 borders (May 19th speech at the State Department).
* Pushes to help remove pro-U.S. and pro-Israel leaders in the Middle East while content to let those leaders anti towards both countries stay in power.
* Demands Israel compromise with the Palestinians while making virtually no demands on the Palestinians.
These points demonstrate the past, the positions and the policies of Obama that the majority of American Jews are inexplicably willing to overlook.
My hope for the 2012 presidential election is that my landsman will come to their senses and pull the lever along with Jews like myself, for a candidate (as yet unknown) who will actually put the good of the country first.
However, if past performance is any indication of future results…
