    If true, another cave-in by the Dems.

    I've got to wonder whom Obama and the Dems are pleasing. It's not the liberal left and it's not the conservative right. It's not even the independent conservative leaners. That leaves people that traditionally vote democratic (union members, young people, Jews.) That's a shrinking demographic. He's alienating his base with his constant cave-ins and compromising. (Good for the U.S.A. though!)

    Interesting reply but not correct, as far as I know. If there is a single Jewish person that supports Obama they are despised and hated by the rest of the Jewish World. He has done all he possibly can, without be murdered, to push Israel into the Abyss.

    Obama Israel Policy Takes Hits but Unlikely to Alter Jewish Vote


    "Polls show Obama, who won 78 percent of the Jewish vote in 2008, according to exit polls, retains strong support among American Jews, even if his standing has slipped compared to where it was four years ago.

    Fifty-five percent of Jewish respondents to a September Gallup poll said they approved of Obama, a number 14 points above the national average. Moreover, the decline in support for Obama since 2008 was no greater among Jews than the general electorate or other key constituencies, Gallup found."

    Well of course he will win the Jewish vote. They are a traditional Democratic voting bloc. But will the percentage of Jewish votes he gets be down compared to previous years? I think so.

    It was reported here on the national news that the pipeline was n the bill, but that it forces Obama to "make a decision" on it in two months.

    If true it sounds like more of a skirt of the issue by the repubs. We will have to see what it really says.

    It might be down some, maybe. But when the time comes to actually 'pull the lever' though........:

    Exit Polls: Nearly 80 Percent of Jews Voted for Obama

    Senator Obama won 77-78 percent of the Jewish vote, according to exit polls, continuing the trend of three previous elections.
    By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

    American Jews continue to back President Obama, US engagement in Israeli-Palestinian conflict
