Why Is Romney So Feverish on Israel When Most Jews Will Vote Obama?

Is Netanyahu betting the house on Romney?

Leftist political scientist Yaron Ezrahi told GPB News that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made his preference clear this election year.

“Netanyahu has not acted wisely enough in order to maintain Israel’s neutrality, traditional neutrality in relation to the American election,” Ezrahi says.

The professor of Political Science at the Hebrew University argues that it’s clear to anyone who follows the news that Netanyahu would prefer a Romney presidency. But while that might be good for Netanyahu and the Likud government for the moment, it would be bad for Israel in the long run.

“He has brought about consequences that actually damage the vital interests of the state of Israel,” Ezrahi says.

If ever there was a demonstration of Netanyahu’s clear preference this election, it was when he met with Romney in Jerusalemin late July.

The NY Times reminded its readers in April that, back in 1976, the lives of Mitt Romney and Benjamin Netanyahu intersected, on the 16th-floor offices of the Boston Consulting Group, where both served as corporate advisers. They absorbed and shared the same world view. Since then, they had kept a warm friendship, little known to outsiders, that is now rich with political intrigue.

I believe Mitt Romney is using Netanyahu to win the November election. But it’s not U.S. Jews he’s after.

Don’t get me wrong, Romney has been openly and vociferously supportive of Netanyahu, especially on Iran.

As the former governor was about to begin his talks with the PM, Romney’s senior national security aide, Dan Senor, told reporters: “If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision.”

That was a direct challenge to President Obama’s campaign to restrain an Israeli strike while Western economic sanctions against Iran had a chance to run their course.

Senor doubled down a short while later, saying that Romney felt “we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear course”.

Senor clarified that, just like Obama, it was Romney’s “fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so” and “no option should be excluded,” but stressed that “Romney recognizes Israel’s right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with it.”

And even though Romney himself, at the press conference with his host and personal friend, only added that he takes “with great seriousness” Iran’s nuclear program, he proceeded through the remaining weeks until the Republican convention to express nothing but support for an Israeli strike, should one be forthcoming.

In his acceptance speech, Thursday night, Romney cashed in on his pro-Israel credentials:

“In his first TV interview as president, he said we should talk to Iran,” he reminded his audience. “We’re still talking, and Iran’s centrifuges are still spinning.”

And the zinger every Jewish and Israeli news outlet has been quoting this morning: “President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus, even as he has relaxed sanctions on Castro’s Cuba.”

Mixed metaphors aside, what is Romney looking to get out of these statements? He can’t possibly be thinking they’ll bring him enough Jewish voters to significantly reduce the traditional Jewish support for the Democrats.

Nadine Epstein, editor and publisher of Moment Magazine, related what former mayor Ed Koch had told her about his pressure on Obama to become friendlier to Israel. It took Koch’s throwing his weight on the side of a Republican candidate for Congress replacing Anthony Wiener, to deliver the message.

But once Koch had Obama’s ear and was convinced the message had been delivered, he changed his stance and joined the New York City Democrats in supporting the president.

“Why the about face?” asks Epstein and answers: “Once reassured that Obama stands behind Israel, domestic policy became foremost: Koch cannot imagine an America without Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. He is afraid that Republicans, led by Mitt Romney—and VP pick Paul Ryan—will abolish those programs.”

Neither can most Jewish voters – 68% of them. It’s not the historic 78% of 2008, but it’s not coming down any further. Not with Ryan as running mate.

And yet, Romney has been nothing but gung-ho on Iran, continues to press for the U.S. all but initiating an Israeli bombing of Iran’s nukes.

  1. Why wouldn't he endorse Romney, obama has clearly shown that he doesn't like Israel or the Jews? Any Jews that votes for obama are fools, and are like lambs being led to the slaughter. I hope and pray that they will come to their senses and not vote for obama. The Democratic party is not what it used to be. Maybe they will wake up due to the embrace of the muslims at the DNC. WAKE UP! I am so shocked that they have forgotten how the Jews embraced Hitler right up until it was too late. The blatant signs are there, get smart, pray for God's wisdom not yours.

  2. OBAMA IS FOR MUSLIMS, I KNEW THIS HOW COULD THE PEOPLE BE SO STUPID THEY VOTE THE PARTY AND DOn't EVEN SEE THE MAN, WHERE DID THEY GET THE PARTY MADE THE MAN.

  3. If you are going to classify your subjects as leftist then for clarification indicate whether other subjects are centrist or rightist. Otherwise it's lots of hot air…tachlis will Romney Ryan release Jonatan Pollard or not?

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    Pollard will be released from prison November 21, 2015, whether Obama is the President or Romney is the President. (If you search the US Bureau of Prisons' inmate finder you will find that release date.) He could potentially be released earlier but has not applied for parole even though he has been eligible since 1995.

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    There are multiple bald-faced lies here. Jews did NOT embrace Hitler y"s at all, ever, and in fact there were actions to oppose the Nazis as soon as he came to power. One such action was an attempt to boycott the 1936 Olympics, which proved unsuccessful thanks to the anti-Semite who was head of the US Olympic Committee, but at least the US flagbearer refused to dip the US Flag to the rasha.

    Obama has appointed more Jews to high positions than any President ever. We now have three Jews on the Supreme Court, the most ever, thanks to his appointment of Elana Kagan. We've had two Jews as White House Chief of Staff, the current one actually Orthodox (Jacob Lew) who belongs to Zionist synagogues. And the current Israeli Defense Minister has publicly said multiple times, most recently just a month ago, that Obama's support for Israel is greater than any previous President:

    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1207/30/sitroom.02.html

  6. I am talking about here in America, I apologize. In Germany many realized Hitler's evil before hand, but many did not want to believe it, as we here in America recognize obama's evils, many don't. When Hitler came to power it was then that the major realization occurred. Even then many Americans remained in the dark about the evils of Hitler. Obama doesn't do anything without an agenda for his own purpose. He has also appointed the most left-winged radical people in his administration, than any other president. He openly has shown his disdain toward Israel and if you can't see it then you are still in the dark and under his delusions. He is a muslim sympathizer and entertains them frequently at the White House. He openly blessed the NYC mosque at a Ramadan dinner at the White House, even though Americans opposed it, he didn't care about American's feelings and all of the 9/11 NYPD and NYFD families who live in that neighborhood having to listen to the call to prayer 5 times a day reminding them of the people who murdered their families. He knew that when islam conquers something that they build a mosque in that place is a prideful statement that they conquered that place. He is embracing the muslims at the DNC convention, not the Jews or the Christians. He was raised by radical muslims and marxists. He is having people arrested for praying at public monuments in DC but allows muslims to pray on the White House lawns. He has fooled the Jews for their support and vote but he is a muslim with a marxist agenda to bring down America all of the way and he is doing a bang-up job of it so far. Elana Kagan? Friend from Harvard. His agenda when spending all of that time at the UN where he had no business being, was to try to get statehood for the palestinians and to stir up the arab spring with the muslim brotherhood. What he does here and there for public approval is just a facade, because the things that he doesn't want us to see are either sealed or he covers up. Don't trust that man who is not open about his true identity, who bows to saudi princes and disrespects our allies, who gives 1.5 billion dollars of our money to the building of mosques around the world. Him entertaining muslims at our White House while we are at war with them, is like if FDR entertained the Nazis at the White House during WWII. That would have never happened! He has insulted America, stomped on our Constituition, oh I could go on but you aren't going to listen or see the truth.

  7. Harry Abram says:

    Mr. Charlie Hall President Obama is a very smart man. He knows which Jews to appoint but his actions to do not support your opinion that he is a friend of Israel. He has helpred create a geographic disaster in the Middle East by his choice of which Middle East Country revolutions he supports. Eypt and Lybia are now more dangerous to Israel than ever thanks to the President's support of those revolutions but in Iran, where he had an opportunity to intercede for pro-democracy factions, he took a pass. In four years, President Obama never made a visit to Israel and the Israelis know it.

  8. Marsha Roth says:

    Ms. McConnell happens to be correct in the fact that many European Jews, suspicious of Hitler, still thought Hitler's economics couldn't be worse than what they were experiencing and many welcomed him coming into Austria & other European nations. No one beleived what happened next! Many Jews thought they were being "relocated" as has happened before in Jewish History. (Incidentally, we disgracefully, had internment camps right here in the United States for Japanese Americans & German Americans.) By the time Jews realized that they were being taken to concentration camps, death/work camps, it was too late. This partial quote from the above article, "How is a Mormon candidate to convince born again Christians…" How outrageous that the author would dare to ask such a question! I'm appalled at such a thought! It took Gerald Molen, an extremely wealthy Mormon to finance Steven Speilberg's SCHINDLER'S LIST! Some people might not agree withMr. Molen's conservative politics but he did the right thing. He financed a film about the Holocaust that brought many facts & recognition of heroic people who risked their own lives to save Jews. My understanding is, fearful that Schlindler's List would not be a big money maker, the studios would not agree to make the film unless Mr. Speilberg agreed to make a box office smash first, Jurassic Park. I believe Mr. Molen's company also financed that film. Mr. Molen's politics may not agree with some people including Mr. Speilberg. But to write "How is a Mormon candidate to convince born again Christians…" is such discriminating ignorance that blows my mind!

    I think Obama has already shown he cannot be trusted when it comes to Israel. He has his personal right to not like Mr. Netanyahu, a brave straight forward man who served Israel as an honored soldier & leader. Obama's rudeness smacked ALL Jews in the face during the visit when Obama cancelled Mr. Netanyahu's meeting to have dinner with his family. Mr. Netanyahu's people made arrangements to stay at a hotel. I'm sure Mr. Obama delayed or cancelled a family dinner a few times before in his Presidentail & political career. Obama's White House hospitalty, or lack of hospitality, is the face of ALL Americans. Obama is a guest with private quarters at the White House as an elected leader. He does not own the White House! He has welcomed many Arab leaders as guests. All visiting dignitaries are welcomed at the White House. Apparently, not Mr. Netanyahu. Obama's people can call it a misunderstanding or whatever. It is what it is!

    I voted for Barak Obama! I was very proud that Americans elected a black President, First Lady & family. Like many Americans, I am now very disappointed. As a Jew, I have no trust in Obama's support of Israel.

  9. Jag Gaynor says:

    I follow the MESSIANC Jewish teachings, which are the ones taught by the apostles Peter, Paul, Mary didn't teach, Barnabus, etc. We are growing by leaps and bounds all over the world. We are in actuality practicing the ORIGINAL FIRST CENTURY CHRISTIANITY. For the most part I feel I can safely say we are mostly all ROMNEY supporters. Romney's Mormonism doesn't bother me…He believes in the same GOD we Christians do. When you say, "most Jews will vote for Obama," this reasoning pertains to "secular Jews," whom religiously speaking aren't true Jews at all. Their only religion is LIBERALISM, and that is also their god. This is my opinion. These people for the most part have no loyalty to America or Israel, again just my own opinion on this issue.

  10. I like to hear your perspective on things! You and Raina open my eyes to things almost every single day. Thank you!! I don't mind Romney being a Mormon either. I've had people make comments about this. I always tell them to look at both the Osmonds and Romney family! They love God and have wonderfully close families. You never see their kids getting arrested and the like. The children have respect for their elders and love this country! So those who are criticizing Mormons ought to take a look at their own families first!!

  11. Jag Gaynor says:

    Thank you, Princess Summer Fall Winter Springs (I sincerely hope you're OK with me calling you this). I learn from your perspective also, You have a lot of depth.

  12. Jag Gaynor says:

    Oh, I only threw Mary in as levity following Peter & Paul because of folk singers Peter, Paul & Mary. I'm fully aware Mary was NOT an apostle, but rather YESHUA's Mother.

  13. As much as I believe Jonathan Pollard should be released already, this should not be #1 on considering who should be president.

    Obama is a dismal failure. The US cannot afford 4 years of inexperience and empty talk from an empty suit.

    He has changed US policy to Israel's disadvantage.

    He has enabled Iran to become nuclear. Yes no one on planet Earth has helped Iran become nuclear more than Barack Obama. i am not exaggerating.

  14. I dont like Obama either, He is not a christian and lies about that, as a christian would not support abortions and same sex marriage, as we who believe in Christ would not go against G-d's commandment "man shall not lie with mankind as with womankind it is an abomination." and what did Christ our Lord say.He said "fear G-d who has the power to cast you into hell" If he persecutes the christians it is because the true Christians support Israel.

  15. George Edward Comtois says:

    Pray For The Shalom of Jerusalem — and Shabbat Shalom !!!

  16. Edward Lobel says:

    Janet, you are more than wrong about Obama and the Jews.
    Obama has appoint rather religious Jews to the most important job in the White House and follows their advice. Obama has had the first sedar EVER in the White House, People who say he is overly friendly to Muslims do so just to incite Jews into thinking.
    I am sure you have not forgotten that george bush walked hand in hand with the head of Saudi Ariabi who is a really othodox Muslims.
    If yiou want to hate a president who supports Muslims, then why not choose Jimmy Carter.
    Willard romney is a very religious mormon. With all the good he says he and his wife have said they do with the charitable donations, keep in mind they ONLY HELP MORMONS AND THE ONLY CHARITBLE CONTRIBUTION THEY MAKE ARE TO THE MORMON CHURCH

  17. Edward Lobel says:

    Janet McConnell – Sorry Janet, I somehow entered my comment before I was finished.
    Being a very religious Mormon, Roney is proud of his baptizing dead Jews into the Mormon faith. He believes he did right and makes no excuses for it.

    As for Jews denying that hitler was bad, you are completely wrong.
    EVERY SINGLE JEW WHO GOT OUT OF GERMANY KNEW WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND EVERY SINGLE JEW HERE KNEW FROM THEM AND BELIEVED THEM.

    We Jews have flourished here in America because of freedom of religion and for you to be upset about a mosque in America is shameful. While I think the location near the World Trade Center was a very bad location to put this center, THIS IS AMERICA AND WE PRACTICE FREEDOM OF RELIGION. In Tenn people have burned down Mosques because of religious hatred. You do remember Temples being burned in Europe and if we do not put a stop to the burning of Mosques now, whose says Temples are not next.
    The ACLU whose sole function is to defend the bill of rights and because of this has taken some very unpopular stances has only gained freedom for the citizens of the U.S. It was founded mostly by Jews and when you see the names of attorney's now many have Jewish names (assuming you are a member of the tribe, McConnell is not a "very Jewish" Name)
    Anyway, what you say about Obama and the Jews is you opinion no matter how wrong you are, it's just an opinion and not fact.

  18. Edward Lobel says:

    You are very foolish!
    Obama has appointed more Jews to places of power than anyother president. Where are all the Muslims he has appointed?
    In this country we have freedon of religion and if you do not protect the other person's religion, no one will protect your rights.
    Marsha Ford Harriman Dailey I am assuming you are a member of the tribe and you should be ashemed of you thinking that way.

  19. Edward Lobel says:

    Jag – You certainly are entitled to you own opinion (and some of it may indeed be correct) you are not entiled to your own facts.

    To say secular Jews are not Jews is like my saying you are not a christian! It is a very foolish thing to say.

    As for willard romeny, he simply does not believe in the same religion you do. You may both worship and adore Jesus but there is such a dramtic differnce in both you versions of him as to not be the same diety.

    Futhermore, willard only believes in his version and has never done anything to help people of other versions or religions.

  20. Edward Lobel says:

    Jacqueline Morningstar Titus If you are indeed a member of the tribe you should be very scared of willard! He is a very religious mormon and believes it is OK for himself and other mormos to baptize dead Jews into his faith. He did it in France and continues to believe he is correct in his thinking.
    Yes he idoes help out people when they need help, BUT ONLY MORMONS and only with his time and kind words!

  21. Edward Lobel says:

    Jeffrey – I believe they will not release Pollard.

  22. Edward Lobel says:

    Harry, how upset were you when george bush walked hand in hand with the leader of Saudi Aria and the fact that he and his father were in bed with him. The Saudis are the most orthodox of Muslims and are the ones you really nead to be scared of.

  23. Edward Lobel says:

    Sientje Seinen – It is obvious that you are not a Jew or a Christian. If Obama says he is a Christian and attends church, then he is a Christian and you are more than foolish to say out loud he is not.
    For your information, the vast majority of Christians go against the church's teachings and do things like practice birth control.

    If you are going to quote the bible and believe in it, you need to believe in everything not just the sections you want to. I mean the bible says a man is obligated to marry his dead brothers wife and to have children with her even if he is already married. The bible talks about the kind of food one should not eat. Do you eat pork products and shell fish? The bibel says "death by stoning" Yikes, that's sharia law and we cannot have that here.

    For your information Christians have only one reson for supporting Israel and that is in order for your version of the rapture to occur is that all Jews must be in Israel for the rapture to occur and if thee is no Isarel there can be NO rapture.

  24. Jag Gaynor says:

    The Jews that Obama has appointed are LIBERALS before they ARE JEWS. Their RELIGION and their GOD is Liberalism. They are Jews only genetically. They have no allegiance to GOD or the Judeo/Christian principles that this country, or for that matter, Israel, were founded on. Their loyalties are only to their false religion, LIBERALISM/MARXISM…That's the way I see it..I'm a Messianc Jew, very proud to be an American, and am very disappointed by the ignorance of most secular Jews who forget about the tyranny suffered by their ancestors at the hands of oppressive governments. It's philosophically incompatible to believe in GOD and be a Liberal based on what today's meaning of Liberalism is. You'll never convince me otherwise because I've been on both sides and I look at the big picture, also, I have a very, very good memory since I was born during WWII and have very good memories of how this country came together and saved the world from the Naziis and the Japanese, and also the Soviet Union. I remember Stalin. Back to Obama…Everyone needs to see "2016: Obama's America." It's not a film that bashes Obama. It just shows who he is, shows him with his friends, shows how he learned to hate colonialism, how the government should have everybody's income to redistribute (That was already tried in the failed Soviet Union), how he basically struggled to learn about his father, who was a card carrying Communist, a bigamist, a drunkard, and a man who deserted several families. Meet his half-brother who lives in poverty. It's a well-documented film about Obama. Learn how he his campaign paid paid the Rev. Jeremiah Wright $150K to keep his mouth shut and get lost during the campaign. You remember Rev. Wright, don't you. Let me refresh your memory, "God Bless America? WRONG, God Damn America." This is the man Barack and his wife got their so-called spiritual guidance from. No, I will never buy into how much Barack Obama loves a FREE, CONSTITUTIONAL America, based on American Exceptionalism and achievements through hard work and education. I know the truth. If you don't, I'm sorry for you, and moreover, I'm sorry for our country. I put all LIBERALS on notice. If you don't like AMERICA, You are free to leave, cause we WHO BELIEVE IN, AND PROSPERED BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN DREAM, are TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK from those who would destroy her from within. That's IT! This will remain a FREE COUNTRY, WITH THE CONSTITUTION AS THE LAW OF THE LAND. If you hate America I give fair warning..GET OUT OF OUR WAY. November 6, 2012 we are making a statement that will be like the "shot heard round the world" was. END OF CONVERSATION!!!

  25. Jag Gaynor says:

    Edward Lobel Mr. Lobel, do not call me by first name. My first name is for my friends. My friends love my CONSTITUTIONAL AMERICA. I didn't say Secular Jews are not Jews, do NOT twist my words. Genetically they are Jews, religiously they are not. Their religion is LIBERALISM and so is their GOD. Unfortunately sir, you sound like you fit into that category. Mitt Romney is a decent man, a charitable man (don't give me this B.S. about only for Mormons, I'm not an idiot, do NOT insult my intelligence..you do NOT know my background, it's way over your head). I'm not trying to insult you, extend me the same courtesy and do not try to gull me. I'll use words you don't understand. Here are three you may not..GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  26. Edward Lobel says:

    You are an prejudiced idiot!
    You have no idea about the subject you are talking about and if you Jesus were alive today he would seiously accuse you of breaking g-ds commanments about lying and jealousy
    The Jew that President Obama has appointed are indeed progressive not an ultra right wing fanatic like you. Lew who is chief of staff is actually quite religious and certainly by accident more pius than you.
    You may not like him, but Rham Emmanuel is also rather religious and know more about Judism than you will ever know about you cult.

    Are you reading Jewish publications to preach your insanity to Jews who you would like to see go the way of the dinosaures? If so you will NEVER see that happen as even Lieberal Jews who could easily say, I'm no longer Jewish, stay as Jews!

  27. Edward Lobel says:

    First of all Jag, you indeed are an idiot. Your comment Jews who are liberal are disgraful and not true. Like I said, no matter how wrong you are, you are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.
    If Jews woreship the liberal g-d does that mean you worship an ultra right wing g-d based on your rediculous comments that seems to be true.

    As for calling you Jag, if it upsets you so much, probably means that's all you have in your life. I will call you Mr. Gayno, when you start to call me my my proper title, Dr. Lobel.

    AS far as willard goes what I told you is the absolute truth no matter what you want to believe. I do agree except for his terrible habits of LYING and making money at all costs (which may not necessarily be a bad thing as long as it is done hoestly( willard is a decent guy. May not be the first person you may want to invite to your son;s Bar Mitzvah, but he would probably be on the list.

    As far as you being so smart, what you say actaully shows me you are not. If you were so smart you would not have to brag about it. But since you want to get into pissing match, I will say that the littlle bit I may have forgotten about anything in my life will be more than you will ever know. I do indeed belong to some clubs that require special intelligence tests to gain membership and I have several goups of letter past my name. So anytime you really want to compare intellegence, let me know. And as far as over your head, the only thing is space!

  28. Jag Gaynor says:

    Edward Lobel Mr. Lobel, I don't know why I'm even responding to you again because my dog would understand me better than you. Let's get one thing straight. This election is not about George Bush 41 or 43. We can't change the past. But I think there's a good chance you've really drunk the Kool Aid, which is not good for you. Ask the survivors of Jones Town, Oh wait, there were no survivors so they can't answer. The Kool Aid killed them. This election is about saving America. That's it. Your President wants to dismantle it. Argue with us as much as you like. It doesn't change the facts. He has usurped constitutional law with "executive orders" at every turn, and quite frankly once again, you need to see "2016." This is the last conversation I intend on having with you cause I feel like I'm talking to a little boy or a teenager, if you will, who thinks he knows everything. I think you'll find more people agreeing me than you. You're not going to change your opinion that's clear, but my opinion, sir, is that it's very politically naive or evil. I'll give you the benefit of the former. Buy your man and his financiers are the latter, EVIL, and their days are numbered in this country. One more thing, please keep religion out of this, because as I said before, the only religion you seem to have is LIBERALISM, and Liberals no nothing of YWHW OR YESHUA, they are incompatible beliefs. You will get NO FURTHER COMMENTS FROM ME. Go ahead now, further make a fool out of yourself.

  30. Edward Lobel — Here's the problem! obama has proven he isn't a friend of Israel. His so-called sanctions that were imposed on Iran allowed for exemptions so it doesn't have a lot of impact. How many lies does obama have to tell before you idiots wake up and start living in reality? DUH!!! How can you believe obama would stand behind Israel when he hasn't stood behind a lot of his promises????? By believing in obama's "word," which has proven to meant nothing, you are really taking a huge chance at Israel being wiped off the face of this earth. I guess you are willing to do this all in the name of believing lying obama! Yep, you are really hurting Israel and all Jews!!! I hope you are proud of yourself. I read some of your arrogant posts. Your arrogance matches obamaa's and that apparently trumphs ensuring Israel is safe!!! obama supporters are really sick people. obama is laughing at each and every one of you because you believe every word he says so he just keeps lying to you! Fool me once………. Just pathetic!!! By the way, obama goes against the teachings of God so I guess that is ok with you because you really aren't interested in your faith as much as you pretend to be. Save your stupid rebuttal for someone who is as gullible as you are because those of us who are intelligent aren't supporting evil!

  31. Edward Lobel says:

    Mr. Gaynor, You continue to make some serious foolish statements and like repubs and tea baggers you seem to be able to dish it out, but cannot take it.

    You have not talked about anything other than religion and that people who are Jewish and not conservative worship a g-d called Liberism and that is a very foolish and not accurate statement to make.

    So now you want to talk about politics and government. As I told you before you are certainly entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. While President Obama is a a very intelligent man, he is not nearly the first President to use Executive orders. Many repubs have used them and since the supreme court has ruled, they are indded constitutional no matter what you want to think.

    I actually have been known to change my mind when I am wrong. This happens very raely, but it has indeed happened. When I am wrong I admit it However, so far you have not been able to convince me of anything except you have a serious problem undertanding the truth.

    You make rude statements wishing perhaps I was dead and you think that is nice. You really need to understand some of the awful and downright wrong statements you make. If you do indeed live in the United States, than the President Obama is Your president as wll as mine, you don't like him that's OK, but don't make up things to justify why. maybe you are old (I am retired so that tells you I am somewhat old in years) but I do not hate my governemnt (yet)
    I do think that willard is probably a decent man, but keep in mind the last two president who were business men were Herbert Hoover who gave us the Great Depression and george bush who gave us the Great Recession. the only thing that willard and ryan are consistent on is the LIES. I am very worried that willard will put us so far in the hole that we will indeed wind up like greece and willard will do what he does best, sell off assets. It would not surprise me if he out sources the military and NASA to foreign countries as they can do it cheaper abd that is what he knows.

    From the way you write< i would think you may also be retired and if not, I wonder how well prepared you are for not havinf medicare and medicaid when you do retire, having social security privatized will only mean wall street will make more money and there is no guarentee you money will be there when you retire.

    These are serious issue you need to think about and ranting about liberals is not going to solve anything wishing me dead just goes to show how wrong you are and how little you know and understand.

    Gee for someone who thinks he is so smart, you do not come off that way.

    Most wonderfully and expertly put.

  33. Edward Lobel — Unfortunately, your stupidity is getting the best of you. Obviously, you are uneducated in the qualifications of Mitt Romney if you are comparing him to Bush. However, we have seen that obama isn't qualified to take out the garbage much less run the country. I haven't met a liberal yet who won't make excuses for his failures. How is obama's "stimulus" working out for us? Oh yes, I forgot you are a liberal and selfish so you don't care about the plight of others. I'm sure you can somehow fit obama's stance on killing babies into your "faith!" It is ignorant at best but so are all obama supporters. Yes, I agree talking about trash/liberals isn't going to solve anything because they are too stupid to think for themselves and are irrational!!!! It is funny that you mention medicare since obama's plan is to do nothing about it so it will go away completely for everyone once it is bankrupt. I could go into the automatic rationing of healthcare the two very important things that obama and the left-winged nuts forgot in their quest to force obamacare on the American people. This is ensure it fails. As a personal who is very well-versed in investments, I can tell you that your description of ss and the privatization is wrong but typical of the ignorance of liberals. First, people would have a choice to stay in regular ss plan (for the stupid people) or go into a privatized plan, which are more safe investments that people can choose from that will give a person more money to live off of at retirement if people know what they are doing, so I would definiitely not recommend this path for you. It is called FREEDOM of choice, which is something the left doesn't believe in. You people want to take our FREEDOMS away and I will fight you every step of the way because this is AMERICA!!!!! You are free to go to another country where there aren't choices given to citizens. Otherwise, you are not accepted in this country by those of us who are true Americans!!!!

  34. Oh boy, Edward Lobel, let's brag on obama's appointments for a moment shall we? I know you are happy about the communist obama hired to work in the people's house. I'll be you threw a party! How many of the people weren't educators of some type? you do know that obama's whole economic plan was from a research paper by one of his crones, don't you? It had never been tested and the crony was a teacher with no experience in the real world. Yep, you liberals are smart–NOT!!! We know what a loser immelt is so he doesn't count. LOL! So where do you have proof that Romney does anything to Jews???? I would look at your own morals and values before criticizing others since you support obama, who supports the killing of babies even outside the womb after they survive an abortion. Yep, you are really a peach–not!!! You have enough blood on your hands to not criticize others! By the way, why do you support a man who continues to break the laws he swore to uphold? As a result, babies and their parents have been killed by the illegals obama has released from prison who he allows to roam freely in our country and some of them have been caught driving drunk. Of course, they were stopped after killing Americans. How do you feel about supporting the killling of these innocent people???? It is no wonder you don't value the lives of babies in the womb when you don't value anyone's life outside of it. I know you and obama are a lot alike and are proud of the people you are responsible for killing. If you respected the laws of this country, you wouldn't be an obama supporter!!!!

  35. Edward Lobel–God gave us rules to live by and the killing of babies doesn't go along with Christian beliefs. Sorry, but Christians and Jews value life. obama is no Christian, but he is a liar! I guess you were wrong here too!

  36. not true that is not why we are supporting Israel, It because the Lord says He will bless those whom bless Israel, and curse those whom do not.!" As for Obama saying he is a christian then he would not condone same sex marriages as Christ suffered on the cross for these sins of the flesh, so people could turn away from going after strange flesh. and you say Obama is still a christian. He doesnt know the Lord God. As Christ would not go against His father's commandment written in Leviticus 18 verse 22. what He did say "Fear God who has the power to cast you into hell"

  37. Edward Lobel says:

    You are rude nasty and down right stupid.
    You say things that are simply not true.
    You do not even know what a communist is let alone saying that Obama placed one in the government. that is a blatemt lie.
    How DARE YOU SAY STUPID THINGS LIKE THEY ARE TRUE.
    YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT ABORTION.
    HOW DO YOU HAVE THE NERVE AND AUDACITY TO SAY SOMETHING SO FAR FETCHED AS OBAMA SUPPORTS KILLING BABIES WHO SURVIVE ABORTIONS! YOU ARE AN IDIOT WHO DOES'T HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT.

    As far as willard goes, YES HE HAS BAPTIZED DECEASED JEWS INTO HIS FAITH AND IS PROUD OF IT. WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE IT, IT IS TRUE.

    Actually, when it comes to law breaking willard has actually broken the law. Whether you believe it or not, it is true.

    DON'T YOU DARE TALK ABOUT MY MORALS WHEN YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING ON THIS SIGHT OTHER THAN TO HARRAS JEWS!

    SINCE YOU DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE LAW, CRITCISING IT ,AKES YOU LOOK MORE FOOLISH THAN YOU ALREADY ARE. JUST BECAUSE YOU MAKE UP SOMETHING LIKE HE BROKE THE LAW, DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE. AGAIN YOU AE SHOWING HOW IGNORANT YOU ARE.

    NAME ONE SINGLE PERSON OBAMA LET OUT OF JAIL WHO THEN KILLED SOMEONE. THAT IS ANOTHER LIE YOU ARE TELLING.

    IT IS VERY APPARENT THAT YOU BELIEVE IN AND USE HITLERS BIG LIE THEORY: LIE TO THEM OFTEN ENOUGH AND MAKE IT OUTRAGEOUS ENOUGH AND THEY WILL BELIEVE IT.

    I WOULD RATHER BE A LIBERAL AND PROGRESSIVE (YOU WILL HAVE TO LOOK THEM UP IN A DICTIONARY IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE ONE) TO SEE WHAT THEY MEAN THAN A STUPID BACKWARDS CONSERVATIVE, WHICH BY THE WAY YOU SHOULD LOOK UP TOO, BECAUSE IT IS APPARENT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT WORD EITHER.

  38. Edward Lobel says:

    Jacqueline Morningstar Titus You continue to be an idiot. I did not compare willard to bush!
    It is very obvious from your completely asinine statments that you are an extreme racist.
    Just what failures do you take credit for. I don't remember talking about that or abortion or anything else that has your brain cramping up so much.
    I am not a dumb ass conservative you has deliberately tried to hurt the United States because they wanted the president to fail and blocked all the legislation he submitted.
    As for the stimulous, anyone with a tenth of a brain (which apparently you do not have) kows that the stimulous worked. EVEN SOMEONE STUPID LIKE YOU HAD THEIR TAXES LOWERED. I KNOW REPUBS AND TEA BAGGERS KEEP REPEATING OVER AND OVER THAT OBAMA RAISED TAXES BUT HE HAS NOT! 1/3 OF THE STMULOUS MONEY WENT DIRECTLY INTO YOU POCKET IN THE FORM OF LOWER TAXES, AGAIN IF YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO KNOW THAT THEN I CANNOT HELP THAT. ANOTHER 1/3 WENT INTO BLOCK GRANTS TO THE STATES, AGAIN YOU PROBABLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT IS, BUT IT MAY HAVE MADE YOUR STATE TAXES GO DOWN OR AIDED EDUCATION (WHICH YOU APPARENTLY YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE OF) THE LAST THIRD WENT TOWARDS PUTTING PEOPLE BACK TO WORK. CAN'T SAY WHAT HAPPENED WHERE YOU LIVED, BUT THERE WAS DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THE ROADS THAT SUDDENLY GOT NEED REPAIR. PEOPLE WHO WERE OUT OF WORK WERE SUDDENLY WORKING AGAIN AND GETTING PAY CHECKS. EVERY ECONOMIST AGREES THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THE STIMULOS WAS THAT IT WAS NOT BIG ENOUGH, EVEN RYAN BELIEVES THAT!

    You rant about health care but apparently from you statements you again have fallen into the repub/tea bagger lies about less care, rationing, loss of service, death panels, you wont be able to keep your doctors, and all the other crap that they spit out in attemps to scare people like you ARE ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.

    The program is paid for by reducing the amoung of money that is paid to PROVDERS OF SERVICE (again you may have to look up what providers of service means) AND NOT FROM CUSTOMER WHO USE THE SERVICES. Rayn's plan eliminates medicare and medicaid altogether which means you will not be able to put anyone in an assited liveing facility should the need arise, because YOU WOULD NOT GET ANY HELP AND MUST PAY FOR IT BY YOURSELF.

  39. You mentioned that bush and that he was a businessman like Romney. Yes, keep ignoring economics and you will continue being stupid. I really didn't peg you for being this stupid. I knew you weren't smart but…..please! For your information, obama's economic plan is meant for short term results not long term ones. So now the local and state governments can't support the temporary employees so they are layed off unless the government props them up again. LOLOLOL! No, I'm sorry but obviously, you don't have common sense about obamacare. Where are all of the extra drs coming from? The providers won't be providing services any longer or they will greatly reduce the number of patients from medicare and obamacare like the drs are with medicare patients now. This is one of the things I alluded to that you and obama can't control. You can't control the fact that drs just don't have to accept obamacare/medicare or any other government program so the patients will not have drs at all. It is just sad that all of your knowledge is just garbage. I could go into a lot more about obamacare but you are already brainwashed and common sense alludes you!

    Actually, Hitler sympathizers included, most prominently, Se,. Prescott Bush, father of Bush 1 and grandfather of Bush 2. Also loving the little corporal: Henry Ford, Charlie Lindbergh and Joe Kennedy. The Jews in the US feared and loathed Hitler from the attempted putch of 1927 in Munich, and any attempt to pin to them even a shadow of sympathy to a man whose central them was a burning anti-Semitism is nuts.

    Also crazy is a comparison between Obama, or, any American president for that matter, with Hitler. It's simply crazy talk and should be treated like that.

    As to letting Muslims pray on the White House lan — I have no problem with that, providing that they wipe their feet when the come back in.
