    Eh, the Jewish voters will come back to the Democrats. Where else are they going to go? The Republicans lack the social legislation agenda to attract the majority of them.
    This whole brouhaha has the feel of a get-out-the-vote drive to return them to the fold.

    The Republicans lack the social responsibility agenda and intelligence to attract them.

    So he’d get 68% of the Jewish vote instead of 78% if the vote was held now? And Jews are 2% of the population?

    I’m guessing he’s not worrying over this one. And Romney is such a ninny on foreign policy and such a warmonger – how is this reassuring? To Jews or anyone else?

    Obama will still get this Jew’s vote. Romney will continue to get the mute button.

    If you fail to win peoples hearts, they won’t contribute their dollars.
    Jews are vasty over represented as donors. And contributions win elections.
