Politics is a pretty crazy business and at the end of the day it boils down to who has control of the money pure and simple. So, it's clear that many of the minority groups side with the Democrats because they want the money or the special treatment. But, especially regarding the Jews, because of the way Obama has handled the debacle in the Middle East and his consistent distancing himself from Israel, I have to ask why would any Jew support him if they know he'll throw them under the bus at a minutes notice.

Because unfortunately so many Jews are socialists at heart. They don't realize that Government is mostly a tool of evil, not good. Amazing that they can't figure it out after the horrific results of WWII.

First there was the surprising Republican win in NY-9, Rep. Anthony Weiner's former House seat, and a district that has a strong Jewish vote.

Now there's this, from Israel National News:

U.S. President Barack Obama currently has the support of 64% of Jewish registered voters, according to the Gallup polling agency. This is 10% less than the percentage of Jews who voted for Obama in 2008, and is similar to the percentage of Jews who voted for Michael Dukakis when he contended for the presidency against George Bush in 1988.
