Senator Obama spent the last few day in that other Jewish Homeland (Florida) trying to shore up the Democratic Jewish vote. And almost every newspaper or website I read had another article about why Obama is having trouble with Israel supports. They NY Times had talked about how the Jews living in Florida were just a bunch of cranky old bigots (click here). At least this time the Times didn’t try to smear Ed Laskey and me for being right wing anti-Obama crazies like they did two months ago. The Palm Beach Post talked about the Senator was visiting senior communities and synagogues in God’s Waiting Room (Boca Raton) trying so hard to assure people that he would protect Israel. Ami Eden of JTA almost made me feel sorry for Obama with these words:
Even the NJDC’s executive director, Ira Forman, who in past years was quick to dismiss any talk of a pending Jewish crossover to the GOP, raised the alarm.
Borrowing from Charles Dickens, Forman that it was the “best of times,” with Democrats poised to make “huge gains” in Congress. But it is also the “worst of times,” he added, citing a recent Gallup Poll showing Obama winning 61 percent of the Jewish vote in a match-up against U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) taking 67 percent against the presumptive Republican nominee
Obama can go to as many Shuls as he wants but so far all he has done is TALK. If the Senator wants to make headway with the Jewish vote, its TUCHAS AFFEN TISH time (Yiddish for put your ass on the table or lets get serious). Don’t talk start firing people. Get rid of your anti-Israel advisers Zbigniew Bzrezinski— Robert O. Malley (still involved) Samantha Power (told the press that she would be involved if she was elected)- Gen. Merrill A. McPeak— Joseph Cirincione— and Daniel Kurtzer one of the “Baker’s Jew Boys.” Baker’s Boys” was the nickname of former Secretary of State James ” F**K the Jews Baker’s top three middle east advisers, Dennis Ross, Aaron Miller, and Kurtzer. All three were Jews (some would say self-hating) and they helped the Baker-run State Department become the most Anti-Israel Department in my lifetime (even worse than Carter’s). And when you are done firing, maybe he can tell us why Ali Abunimah, Anti-Israel activist claims he was your friend and reported :
As he came in from the cold and took off his coat, I went up to greet him. He responded warmly, and volunteered, “Hey, I’m sorry I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race. I’m hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.” He referred to my activism, including columns I was contributing to the The Chicago Tribune critical of Israeli and US policy, “Keep up the good work!” click here for more
Senator Obama can go hold hands with old Jewish ladies all he wants, learn to play Mah Jong, he can even roll out congressman Nadler, but until he puts Tuchas Affen Tish, all he will get out of it are stories in the liberal media talking about how bigoted the Jews are.
