With the announcement this week that Gov. John Kasich of Ohio has become the 16th candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, Jewish GOP insiders are sorting through this assortment of pro-Israel riches, for every one of the candidates seems to have compassion and understanding for Israel’s numerous predicaments.

DC Branch of Knesset

The U.S. Congress sounds increasing like the Washington branch of the Knesset.  I'm just waiting for Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul to show up on the Senate floor wearing yarmulkes.

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.
