?Gloom? Factor Sinks Obama?s Standing With Jewish Voters | The Jewish Week
Sadly that 51% is exceeded only by the approval rating in the black community. I apologize for my co-religionists' stupidity in supporting this guy to begin with and any continued support they offer.
Who individuals choose to vote for or support is not your place to apologize for. Strikes me as arrogant as hell to think that Jewish people, like any other group, should all vote the same way.
This is an opinion that could have been written in some High School newspaper/publication:
I wish Ms. Sidoti well, in her career.....but, such a generalized/shot-in-the-dark-opinion is more-befitting of a college-freshman.....who forgot to show-up for classes, after staying-up the entire-night (before) watching re-runs of "The Real World" with get_involved.
The word is "whom."
Anyway, Jews are known to be smart. How could they support someone with no experience and a demonstrated history of friendliness to Arabs?
Baffles me as well. And while I agree with CG in principle, the reality is that candidates have to sell their platforms to certain demographics. I believe the reason the GOP hasn't reached out more to minorities is that it is not cost effective. They generally vote in blocs (and harrass and ridicule anyone who crosses party lines). Sad but true.
