The more he claims not to have one, the clearer it becomes that he has one

In a piece that could have been ghost-written by someone in the Obama campaign, Newsweek described a 'confrontation' on the Senate floor last week between the Democratic nominee and Senator Joe Lieberman, Democrat/Independent of Connecticut, a McCain supporter and the Senate's lone Orthodox Jew.
In a brief but animated Senate floor confrontation last week, according to a campaign aide who asked for anonymity when talking about private discussions, Obama told Lieberman he was surprised by Lieberman’s personal attacks and his half-hearted denials of the false rumors that Obama is a Muslim. (The aide says Lieberman was “strangely muted” during the exchange; a Lieberman spokesman says the chat was “private and friendly.”)
In The Corner (Hat Tip: Memeorandum), and in a longer piece in National Review Online (Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit), Mark Hemingway dissects the claims by Newsweek and by the Obama campaign that they don't have a 'Jewish problem' and concludes that Obama doth protest too much. In fact, Obama does have a Jewish problem, and while he is trying to pin it on Lieberman - claiming that Lieberman spread rumors that Obama is a Muslim - the only public statement by Lieberman said that Obama is a Christian.

Obama does have a Jewish problem and it has nothing to do with his being a Muslim nor with his middle name being Hussein. He has a Jewish problem because he has had a series of anti-Israel 'advisers,' some of whom have been forced to resign due to their connections to terror organizations. In that light, Hemingway speculates on what the Obama-Lieberman 'confrontation' might have been about:
The confrontation on the Senate floor came just after Obama’s speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, during which he completely reversed course and said that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard ought to be a designated a terrorist organization. (Obama also used the AIPAC occasion to backtrack on other key issues regarding Israel.) Lieberman immediately called Obama on the “disconnect” between the speech and the vote [Obama was absent when the Kyl-Lieberman bill was approved, designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization, but Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for voting for the bill. CiJ]. Perhaps taking criticism from one the most respected Jewish voices in America — who also happens to be a loyal McCain surrogate — had something to do with Obama’s angry confrontation with Lieberman? Newsweek doesn’t bother to explore that obvious angle.
Hemingway then makes a more-than-plausible case that the 'rumors' about Obama's advisers are true and have a lot to do with why Obama might have a Jewish problem.

In The Corner piece, Hemingway divulges the content of an email he received from Lieberman's office on Tuesday morning:
"If the Obama campaign thinks they are going to intimidate Joe Lieberman with these sleazy tactics then they are sorely mistaken."
Let me add another piece that may cause Obama problems with the Jewish community. Over at Israpundit, Bill Levinson says that a 'Palestinian' analyst saw Obama's AIPAC speech as Taqqiya (deception) (Hat Tip: NJDhockeyfan via Little Green Footballs).
    Mahdi Adel-Hadi, a Palestinian political analyst, told NBC News on Thursday that Palestinians should be pragmatic and understand the circumstances in which Obama spoke before judging his words.

    “Remember this is a campaign speech, and he’s addressing the most powerful American Jewish lobby. Also, the Democratic nominee has to follow the lines of the party’s position,” said Adel-Hadi.

    “Those in the Arab world who condemn him are short-sighted, and it is too early to come with strong reactions,” Adel-Hadi said. “Obama needs to keep the party under his leadership and can’t leave room for anyone to doubt his integrity, which could weaken his challenge to McCain.”

That ought to win Obama lots of friends in the Jewish community.

Here's my prediction: Obama will still win a majority of the Jewish vote because there are a lot of Jews out there who just aren't capable of pulling the R lever. But my guess is that he will win less of the Jewish vote than any Democratic candidate since Jimmy the Dhimmi got 45% in 1980. And at the rate he's going, he could yet end up doing even worse than that.

Something is seriously off with the Crook County Machine Messiah.

May your prediction about the lowest Jewish vote come true.

I was present last Wednesday filming Obama's speech. The attendees were mesmerized by that speech - despite being completely out of context with his history. The crowd warmed to him with a lemming-like attraction reminiscent of National Socialists or a Tom Jones concert. Remember, he sells HOPE to a desperate audience. I expect he could muster the highest Jewish vote in history- saving some tragic revelation.
Watch the Hillary and Olmert speeches on DemoCast.TV and leave your comments.

STOP LYING ABOUT OBAMA. How pathetic is that? You know he's a Christian. When you abandon the truth, it abandons you. And you know he does not have a "Jewish problem." AIPAC has a problem with Obama. They fear he won't co-sign their agenda for war.

Obamaniac, if you read the article, the only public statement by Lieberman said that 'Obama is a Christian.' (BTW, What was his religion as listed on his birth-certificate?)
Obama has a 'Jewish problem' because he has had a series of anti-Israel 'advisers,' some of whom have been forced to resign due to their connections to terror organizations.

Oh, and also BTW,

Obama Hussein isn’t eligible to be President

Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. Natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986? . Presidential office requires a natural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. Citizen parents, which of course is what exempts John McCain though he was born in the Panama Canal. US Law very clearly stipulates: “…If only one parent was a U.S. Citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16.” Barack Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen and Obama’s mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means though she had been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years, (or citizen perhaps because of Hawai’i being a territory) the mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Barack Obama’s birth, but *after* age 16. It doesn’t matter *after* . In essence, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship. At most, there were only 2 years elapsed since his mother turned 16 at the time of Barack Obama’s birth when she was 18 in Hawai’i. His mother would have needed to have been 16+5= 21 years old, at the time of Barack Obama’s birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen. As aformentioned, she was a young college student at the time and was not. Barack Obama was already 3 years old at that time his mother would have needed to have waited to have him as the only U.S. Cizen parent. Obama instead should have been naturalized, but even then, that would still disqualify him from holding the office.

*** Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. *** Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all the other info does not matter because his mother is the one who needed to have been a U.S. Citzen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961, with 5 of those years being after age 16. Further, Obama may have had to have remained in the country for some time to protect any citizenship he would have had, rather than living in Indonesia. Now you can see why Obama’s aides stopped his speech about how we technically have more than 50 states, because it would have led to this discovery. This is very clear cut and a blaring violation of U.S. Election law. I think the Gov. Of California would be very insterested in knowing this if Obama were elected President without being a natural-born U.S. Citizen, and it would set precedence. Stay tuned to your TV sets because I suspect some of this information will be leaking through over the next several days…
