A Job For Chris Christie

New Jersey's Gov. Chris Christie is a tough guy.

The former federal prosecutor is known for blunt talk and quick rejoinders to critics. The other day, up in New Hampshire, Christie had the back of the guy he probably hopes will tap him as vice presidential nominee. When hecklers shouted that Mitt Romney "kills jobs," the former Massachusetts governor politely said that view was unfortunate.

With the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary behind him, Mitt Romney, who garnered 40 percent in the Granite State,  is on to the South Carolina primary Jan. 21, where polls put him narrowly in the lead. Should he win in the face of a blistering $3.4 million negative ad campaign, courtesy of a super PAC backing Newt Gingrich, he would be poised to win in Florida Jan. 31 and become the first non-incumbent Republican presidential candidate to sweep the first four primaries.

And that would please Jewish Republicans, analysts say.

Santorum, Obama And Appeasement

It  was somewhat jarring this week to see the President of the United States take to his podium to figuratively hold up the head of Osama bin Laden as a political trophy. But that's what Barack Obama felt compelled to do after Republican contenders Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney  accused the commander-in-chief of "appeasement" of America's enemies.

Sitting around the Shabbat table, a friend posed a question: “Now that it looks like Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee, how should we respond as Jews to the fact that he’s a Mormon?”

Herman Cain's Bigotry

"No Jews Allowed."
 
A sign like that would be infuriating. How about a presidential candidate saying he would be uncomfortable appointing Jews to his cabinet, you know, with all those dual loyalty questions? Outrageous bigotry, you say? Now substitute Muslim for Jew and you have Republican presidential wannabe Herman Cain.
 

Presidential Tidbits: is Romney the frontrunner who can't win?

It was a lively week in presidential politics, a welcome relief from stories about killer tornados, the debt ceiling crisis and other natural disasters.
