Default Do Jews Support Obama?

I haven't heard much about Jewish folks and politics recently.

Jewish people loved Bill Clinton; why don't they publicly back Obama?

They voted 79% for Obama last election.

What's so important about "publicly" backing Obama?

I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that we were required to make a "public declaration." But yes, most of us did and (likely) will vote for Obama...

Guess you're part of the 21% - LOL.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge Obama supporter... he's just the lesser of evils this time around, IMO. Who else am I going to support, without throwing away my vote? I suppose it doesn't matter to us Californians anyway, but I don't know of any more viable candidates right now.

I don't see him getting the same numbers of Jews this time around. Many Jews are very principled liberals who know how this guy as stabbed his base in the back on civil liberties, the expansion of wars, transparency in government, breaking the law, looking the other way when other elites break the law.

The other guy. Obama is anti-Jew and anti-Israel. You want to vote against your interests, go right ahead.

You sound like an Israeli firster. Your interests are right wing Likudnik interests. Have you considered just moving to the country where your prime loyalty lies?

Obama is tripping over himself, scared to be seen as even mildly, not obeying your Israeli thug government heros...and that's still not good enough for you.
