    After using his not insubstantial political capital to help send NY-9 over to the republican side of the aisle for the first time in 90 years to "send a message to obama on israel". ed koch, iconic former mayor of ny has decided that after the president's speech at the UN the other day, that all is forgiven and he is supporting his re-election bid.

    It's not surprising that he'll be supporting Obama in 2012, but I'm surprised by how quickly and frankly he reversed himself.

    ed koch has never been much for caring what other people think of him saying what's on his mind.

    Obama gives a speech and now Koch says, "I'm fully satisfied with the president's actions as they relate to Israel."

    He wasn't satisfied with Obama's actions before the speech. But now, after a speech, he is satisfied with his actions.

    What action was it that Obama did when he gave a nice speech? The only action I can take from that is that Obama proved he will say anything to secure votes. That's an action which settles Koch's concerns and is worth a vote?



    Democrats sure put a lot of weight on pretty speeches.

    I am sure he was looking for a reason to reverse himself. After all what was he going to do? Support the Republican? lol

    i think you're not understanding what the speech was and what koch's only issue was with the president.

    but don't worry. it's not like koch would think his endorsement would matter to you. you'd have to not suffer from obama derangement syndrome to get it.

    Yey!!...Does that make you happy? Libs are libs, the dems got to him. Doesn't really matter, Obama’s % of the Jewish vote will drop drastically. I'm predicting a new record for Republicans over 40% of the Jewish vote, and lets just see how much Koch will actually campaign for Obama. I'm betting not much. Man I love the Orthodox Jews Obama has a 8% favorable rating among practicing Jews, Half of these liberal Jews do not even bother to practice the religion. Oh wait.,.. They practice their liberalism
