Romney Wins First Debate Hands Down (Complete Video)

Patiently, with a good-sport's smile, without a hint of anger, Romney sought time and again to correct Obama's distortions of his program.

Romney Coming Back Slowly on Eve of First Debate

In North Carolina, where President Obama was starting to open a lead over Republican presidential candidate Romney, the two are now tied according to recent polls, with each candidate's lead falling within the margin of error. Until the end of the summer, North Carolina was considered a red or red-leaning state, and the fact that Obama was pulling ahead there marked the lowest point for Romney.

The Metzitzah B’Peh Controversy

Anyone who reads the text of the New York City Department of Health’s proposed rule regarding metzitzah b’peh will immediately notice that two fundamental concerns have been virtually ignored in all of the public debate over the measure.

Swing States Polls Suggest Obama Lead – for Now

The real election campaign is taking place outside of the sure states they usually concede to one another, and is being waged in these eight swing states.

Party of Trolls: How Race Dominates U.S. Politics

Poverty is complicated. So are jobs and wars. Race however is simple. There are bad people and there are good people. The oppressed and the oppressors. And that paradigm, that one talking point that they store up and unleash at every occasion is the sum total of their contribution to every debate under the sun.

Palm Beach Fl. JCC Squashes Videotaping of Presidential Debate

Round two in a no-holds barred debate on whether Jews should vote for Obama or Romney for US president took place Wednesday night at the Palm Beach South Jewish Community Center in Boynton Beach, Florida. The joint was jumping: hundreds of people were turned away for lack of space, audience members were shouting, speakers were heckled and interrupted and ugliness prevailed. But unless you were able to squeeze into the room, you'll have to take the word of those who were there. Why and when were cameras barred from the room? According to the panelists, the JCC management knew there were going to be cameras.

Politicians Talk About the Universal Draft

Chief Rabbi Amar and President Peres met today and discussed the draft issue. They concluded that the debate must continue, but without extremism from...

J Street Leader: Our Job is to “Move Jews” to Support Washington Politicians

Got that? The goal of J Street is not to represent American Jews on the left, but is instead "to move American Jews" to the left and to the Administration's/friends on the Hill's point of view, and to "provide them with cover."

Jblogs: Five Ways to Show I’m not Pregnant and Then Some

It's my second batch so far, and all I can say is I'm frustrated beyond belief, because there's so much good, zesty stuff out there in Jewblogia, and I only get an hour or two to look for the best. For sure I missed great pearls today, and if you want to help me correct this inequity, a.) start a new blog against me, and, 2.) send me da links. I want my links to your work. Trip well, cruise safely, it should all be G rated, maybe PG-13, max.

Are Working Mothers Happier and Healthier Than Stay-at-Home Mothers?

The old debate over who has it ‘harder,’ stay–a- home mothers or working mothers, has never been clearly resolved. Some studies claim that stay-at-home mothers are more satisfied while working mothers are plagued with guilt, while other studies suggest the opposite.

Fidler/Strobin Debate for the 27th District Race

Democrat Lew Fidler and Republican David Storobin recently took part in the one and only debate between them.

Rubin Reports: Debate in Mainstream Arabic Media – Only One Flavor Available

One factor that is not taken into account in Washington, or at least in the White House, is how U.S. policies and actions are distorted, often on purpose, in the Arabic-speaking sphere. When someone says that Arabs or Muslims hate America because of its policies, the proper wording should be: because of what they think those policies are, regardless of what is actually happening.

Republican Debate: Romney, Gingrich Condemn Abiding Palestinian Rejection of Jewish State

US Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says Palestinians "want to eliminate the state of Israel."

Tal Law Will Not be Brought to Cabinet Vote

Does Questioning Evolution Make One Anti-Science?

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman thinks Republicans are knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. In the not-too-distant future he sees a Republican half-wit winning the presidency and dragging America back to the Stone Age.

Israeli Left Goes Bonkers Over Transparency

You will be excused if you have not been following the debate over proposals to demand that sources of funding for political parties and activist groups be revealed.

Debate Continues To Rage Over Palin’s ‘Blood Libel’ Charge

WASHINGTON - The post-shooting debate over political civility is cooling down, but passions are still raging over Sarah Palin's claim that critics were guilty of perpetuating a "blood libel" against her.

In A Language Of Lies, Don’t Lose To Wordplay

Americans understand the power of wordplay. When pro-abortion activists were fighting an uphill battle in the '90s, trying to gain public support for their cause, a very shrewd marketing company insightfully changed the language of their debate. The debate was no longer about abortion; now it was about "choice." The contentious question, "Are you pro-abortion?" had a new compelling answer: "No, I'm pro-choice." Language effectively changed the abortion issue, successfully focusing on the mother while disregarding the plight of the child. There is another roiling debate, this time concerning Israel, and you can help reframe it.

The Death Of Academic Discourse

Of the many intellectual perversions currently taking root on college campuses, perhaps none is more contradictory to what should be one of higher education's core values than the suppression of free speech.

Haman-nejad

Something about this Purim bothered me. It seemed too relevant. Once again, a Persian Haman has emerged - Haman-nejad (nejad or nezhad is a Persian suffix meaning "descendant of"), who has again made the existence of Israel a topic for debate. Some say that the world is better off with Israel, and others say that the world is better off without Israel. "Enlightened" academia has not yet decided, but it looks like the scales are tipping in favor of a world without Israel.

We’re Losing The Campus Debate

It's been five years since I attended a symposium at Columbia University discussing the David Project's documentary "Columbia Unbecoming," a film that highlighted anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements by faculty in the Middle East Arts Language and Culture MEALC program. The film ignited a debate over the prevalence of anti-Zionism on American campuses and the dangers of advocacy teaching at universities, much of it fueled by Arab funding.

J Street’s Wrong Turn

The founding of J Street in 2008 sparked much debate in the pro-Israel community. Many were concerned that the group would be overly critical of the Jewish state and thus erode the pro-Israel consensus in the United States.

A Living Megillah (Part One)

Many moons ago, when our children were small, my husband and I would spend our summers at Liebowitz's Pine View Hotel in the Catskill Mountains. It was a special time - before today's technology -when people actually talked to one another and were happy just to get away from the city and breathe some fresh country air. To me, however, that which was most special was that I had the zechus to host my dear parents every Shabbos. Then my talks took on an added dimension because my beloved, honored parents were there. Many amazing miracles occurred during these Shabbosim.

9/11 And The Left

This week marks the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America by Islamic fundamentalists. What really stands out in looking back at that day and its aftermath are the initial reactions voiced by many highly visible liberals and leftists, both in the U.S. and abroad.
