J Street Boasting of Defeating Israel’s Friends, But its Relevance Is Questionable

Given President Obama's win and victories of many of their candidates, a reasonable morning-after position for J Street would be quiet satisfaction, or even – why not? – gleeful rejoicing. But J Street, which has rarely met a critic of Israel it didn't like, instead tried to promote itself as an integral part of the campaign, a driving wind propelling Democratic victories. So eager to claim a starring role, J Street released details of several exit polls they commissioned which, upon examination, tell far more about how little J Street matters.

What We Lost in This Election

Now that we have lost the election of 2012, where our champion, a third-rate imitation of Ronald Reagan, without either his charm or his principles, who believed in absolutely nothing except being the best salesman he could be; let's pause to reflect on all the things we lost out on through his defeat. When we lose something, a relationship or a job, the grief comes from what we thought we had and what we imagined it was, not from what it truly was. Perspective means getting a true sense of what we had and what we never had to begin with. So let's look at what we might have had with President Mitt Romney.

The Mourning After Obama’s Re-Election

Wednesday morning political quarterbacks are like the Monday sports variety, only you hear from the former two days later.

Major US Paper Endorses Romney, Went for Obama in ’08

While the Sun Sentinel took a chance with Barack Obama in 2008, it is switching sides and endorsing Romney this time. After acknowledging the tough economic environment Obama inherited, the Sun Sentinel's editorial board doesn't find a healthy plan for moving forward, and says that instead, "the president falls back on the tired talking point of increasing taxes for the wealthy." While agreeing that everyone wants the tax code to be fair, the problem is in seeing "how raising taxes is going to kickstart jobs in the private sector."

Prematurely Celebrating Romney’s Victory

Despite Obama’s poor debate performance, Romney’s rising likability numbers and voters saying he would better handle the economy – and two more polls which give him a significant bump since the debate – there is reason to fear that voters will still not vote against the incumbent.

So Why are Voters Still Choosing Obama?

Last week's U.S. presidential debate was a victory for Romney on all accounts, especially if one judges by the closing statements, where Obama couldn't muster any specific reason why voters should re-elect him aside from the fact that he was trying really hard as president. Looking at polls on how people view the candidates, I’m beginning to wonder why it is that Obama leads Romney in national polls and whether that is going start to change in a big way.
