1. the Foolish Fursts!
M ,   USA   (08.01.12)
How in God's name could any Jew who cares one iota about Israel, vote for Obama? After Romney's speech at the Kotel the difference between the two candidates is GLARINGLY clear! Only a fool would choose Obama.
2. Good news but
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (08.01.12)
the main problem, how will vote Florida's hispanics. This ethnic minority is likely to decide in the next presidential elections. Now they are about 60 millions in the USA.
3. Florida's Jewish voters
Johannes ,   Norway   (08.01.12)
What change for the better do Florida's Jewish voters expect from Barack Hussein Obama?
4. The truth is it was a racial election in the first place
Abe   (08.01.12)
If he were white, he would never have become president because he has zero credentials. Obama ought to thank those liberal Jews - and there are many of them in the US - for his one term - hopefully.
5. BHO should have 0% support of jews anywhere
jack bauer   (08.01.12)
everything he has done for years has put jews worldwide in greater danger... hes got to go
6. Jewish vote
Maurice ,   Los Angeles, USA   (08.01.12)
Any Jew who votes for Obama is voting against Israel and America as we know it. Please wake up.
7. Piss on an American Jews head and he'll tell you its raining
Al   (08.01.12)
Yes Dorthy...they are that dumb.
8. Jews have always been some of his biggest supporters
zionist forever   (08.01.12)
Even if Obama has lost some support from the Jews at the end of the day they will come out and vote for him and there will be alot of them voting. Apart from the blacks Jews have constantly been some of Obama's die hard supporters throughout his presidency. As for his helping Israel with defines, why is it when a president supports Israel in an election year everybody thinks he was the most pro Israel president the country has ever had? People do have such short memories. In his first year Israel wanted to buy some Apaches Obama vetoed the sale on the grounds they might be used against the palestinians. At the same time Egypt made a huge arms deal including F16s, attack boats and Apaches and they were sold with Obama's blessings. He might have found the funding for a couple of Iron Dome batteries but I imagine the condition for that is no military operations in Gaza. We have our great protector Iron Dome so there is no need for an operation to actually try stop the attacks so we won't need Iron Dome. Obama has been the most anti Israel president since Jimmy the peanut Carter but the Jews fall for everything he tells them.
9. Florida bail-out on the way? Or will kissing "tuches" do?
tom ,   tel aviv   (08.01.12)
10. The Fursts': Once fools...always fools!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (08.01.12)
It's idiots like these people who are the problem in the U.S.A. and in Israel.
11. Reality
michael Pielet ,   israel   (08.01.12)
There are only 100,000 to 150,000 Jewish voters in Florida, basically Broward and Palm Beach counties. Most other Jews are snowbirds who vote in their home states. No Jew who supports israel will vote for Obama. Despite what the polls are inaccurately reporting, Governor Romney will receive close to 50% of the Jewish vote.
12. There is no sane reason to vote for Obama.
Chaim ,   Israel   (08.01.12)
Given the devastation Obama has inflicted upon America, and his hostility towards Israel; there is no sane reason for any Jew or any good American to vote for Obama.
13. to #6 nobama visited Israel only once
ghostq   (08.01.12)
in 4 years, I don't think that feet on the table and remote controll policy is something that works. sad but true.
14. Silly Jews
Steve from Florida ,   Palm Beach, USA   (08.01.12)
For all our allegedly high IQ, we Jews can be awfully stupid and childlike. Voting for Obama once was idiotic, but twice?! It's like backing up the Titanic and hitting the iceberg again. Wake up numbskulls!
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (08.01.12)
Having lived in the USA, it is safe to say that at least 70% of the American Jews are American first and Jewish a very far second if at all. As common in our history the more sucsesfull Jews assimilate, the more removed they become. So for many Obama's anti Israel stance has little to no signifigance. Eventually we will survive Obama as we have many hostile leaders in our long history. That the American Jews do not grasp the failure Obama is on their so cherished economy is their own frikking problem. It is very likely they will arrive on our shores with only the clothes on their backs as we have seen many times before with our arrogant assimilted Jewish brothers and sisters.
MICHELLE ,   WILMETTE   (08.01.12)
17. Fool me once, shame on me
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (08.02.12)
Feel me twice, shame on you Jews must not fall for Obama's song and dance again Four years under his failed administration is four years too many In his next speeches he will resort to speaking in a Yiddish dialect to get votes
18. Obama
Sam ,   USA   (08.02.12)
Obama has been great for America after the mess the GOP made and he stays out of Israel's business, he gets my vote again.
19. #14 Exactly... Great Analogy (end)
Netanya ,   Netanya   (08.02.12)
20. # 10 Indeed.
Joanna ,   CA   (08.02.12)
Most of the voters are idiots, and those two are no different.
21. American and Jewish
Amy ,   San Francisco   (08.02.12)
I am American and Jewish, bur if I have to choose between Israel and America, than Israel will always come first. When it comes to Obama, why would any sane person vote for him? He is bad for America and bad for Israel. There is no conflict here.
22. #18
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (08.02.12)
American Jews are further removed from Israel than Evangelical Christians. They are so out of touch with political realities that they are just plain stupid. They cannot give any specifics other than "Obama is better than Bush was". Really? How so? "Uh..Uh..Well, he killed Osama and passed healthcare". Yeah, those are great :-/ That's why we have uneducated fools like Sam in the US. If they'd actually research instead of parroting the party cliches, they might actually be worthy of voting. Idiots all!
23. #18 Sam, you made the pants too long
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (08.02.12)
America is worse off now than it was before Obama took office, he has increased your national debt by FIVE TRILLIONS DOLLARS in a mere 3-1/2 years, your Unemployment rate is more than 8.2%, nearer 15%, if you take into consideration the people that have stopped looking for work, because they were disgusted Gas price is about $3.50 a gallon, it was about $1.80 when he assumed the Presidency When he pedled Obamacare,he told people that "If you like your doctor, you can keep him", many doctors are closing up shope because of governmental interference, over regulations and too much paperwork Last but not least, he has meddled in Israel's business, insisting that Israel rever to 1967 lines, which in effect are the 1949 Rhodes Armistice Lines, which Arabs ignored when they launched three major wars against Israel, 1956, 1967 & 1973 To put it nicely, your post is a load of hooey!!
24. #21 Amy - What you are saying
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (08.02.12)
that since Obama isn't for the USA or Israel,he's GOOD FOR NOTHING,other than stirring up trouble all over the place I agree
25. He sure lost my support
Florida Jewish Voter ,   West Palm Beach   (08.02.12)
I was foolish enough to vote for Obama because I felt he "spoke to me" during the campaign better than McCain... but by the time I heard his Cairo address, I realized it wasn't that he had no idea, it was that he had no CLUE! Romney in 2012, G-d willing!
26. Jews are smart
Brod ,   USA   (08.02.12)
It is time they stop being fooled by the closeted Islamist who is a master of deceptions. America, Israel and the Free World cannot afford to have 4 more years of Obama failed administration.
27. #21
iselin ,   Oslo, Norway   (08.02.12)
Time to emigrate, or can't you bear to leave your great American salary and lifestyle?
28. obama is a hateful black muslim
zimbi ,   NJUSA   (08.02.12)
29. #6 Maurice
DavidR ,   USA   (08.02.12)
I would suggest only one tiny change to your remark. You should say the "US as we KNEW it rather than as we KNOW it. He has already all but destroyed the US.
30. #27 iselin\
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (08.02.12)
Salaries aren't so great since Obama took office, many are doing their work and that of the other fellow that was fired too At 8.2% Unemployment, people are fighting over what jobs are availabe, College Graduates have problems finding jobs, they're returing to their folks, because they can't afford to live alone It WAS A"GREAT AMERICAN LIFESTYLE (past tense)
