AJC Poll Shows Obama At 65 Percent Of Jewish Vote

09/27/2012

In results that are not terriby surprising, American Jews surveyed by the American Jewish Committee said they favored President Barack Obama over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by a margin of 65 percent to 24 percent.

Ten percent of voters are still undecided, but when asked how they were leaning the undecided voters broke down 63 percent for Obama, the Democrat and 27 percent for Romney, the Republican nominee.

Why Do They Run?

When JFK was asked why he was running for president in 1960 he answered, “Because that’s where the power is.” When kid brother Ted was asked the same question 20 years later he couldn't think of an answer and his presidential ambitions went downhill from there.

President of the United States is the most powerful and prestigious job in the world, so why, once again, is the crowd of candidates not the finest America has to offer?

For a guy who boasted, "I am my own man," Jeb sounds an awful lot like he’s channeling his big brother George.

Where Are The Birthers Now?

Ted Cruz and Barack Obama may be poles apart politically, but they actually have a lot in common. 

Both are smart, articulate, ambitious Harvard Law graduates who decided to run for president after only two years in their first term in the U.S. Senate.

They also have foreign-born fathers and white American mothers.

Ted's father was born in Cuba and Ted himself was born in Canada.

Obama's father was born in Kenya but Barack was born in Hawaii.

McCain's Cloudy Judgment

John McCain, the man who keeps telling us Sarah Palin is qualified to be President, has been going around saying US-Israel relations have never been worse than under Obama. Is he right or is he saying this because he seems to reflexively oppose the President on just about everything?

Hagel Out; 'True Friend Of Israel'

Chuck Hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense two years ago was met with considerable angst on the part of many friends of Israel. His resignation today was met with regret, especially at the Israeli Defense Ministry.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon called him "a true friend of Israel" who made "large and significant" contributions to the two nations' security ties. 

That's a far cry from the initial response to nomination of the maverick former Republican senator from Nebraska. 

Kristol Calls Them 'Irresponsible'

Neocon guru Bill Kristol said "no responsible elected official" is calling for impeachment of President Barack Obama. It's "a phony issue," he said. So who are the irresponsible officials?

CPAC Disses Disability Voters; Republicans Doomed To Fail

Day one of the Conservative Political Action Conference, the biggest confab of conservative political activists, was underway. As a non-partisan political junkie, I was there. I was just feet away from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), as they gave their speeches to standing ovations of thousands of conservatives. However, for all the enthusiasm in the room, disability issues alone show that if things don’t change, the Republicans are doomed to fail in their election goals yet again. Indeed, policies for people disabilities were completely absent from the speeches of Rubio, Paul and others at CPAC gathering.

Hagel Confirmed As Secretary Of Defense

The U.S. Senate confirmed Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, largely along party lines.

The Senate voted 58-41 to confirm Hageln on Tuesday afternoon, with 54 senators in the Democratic caucus joining four Republicans in voting for him.

The Democratic-led Senate had sought to confirm President Obama's nominee earlier this month, and the Armed Services Committee approved him in a 14-11 vote on Feb. 12.
