Video: Why do Jews still vote Obama?

A remarkable video narrated by Carl Gallups explaining why Jews still Vote Obama, despite the fact that he is the most anti-Israel President in history - he bows to the King of Saudi Arabia, he snubs Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in the White House, and he's never even visited Israel as President! Executive Producer, political analyst and author David Rubin, an American-Israeli and the former Mayor of Shiloh, Israel demystifies the baffling bent of Jews to keep voting themselves into potential oblivion. David has been interviewed often by perplexed conservative talk show hosts and has written extensively about this president's relationship with Israel. Rubin explains that the recurring question of American Jewish support for Obama has become the question that he can no longer avoid. Is President Obama really hostile to Israel? If he is, why does he still have massive Jewish support? David answers these questions and more in this "must see" video. David Rubin also covers this and more in his book, "The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama."

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Rita E).

Spot on, isn't he?

While this topic is an interesting intellectual exercise (and heartbreaking to some of us), the intro paragraph needs always to include a warning on perspective. The total population of the U.S. in the 2010 census was 312 million. The number of Jews in the U.S. is something like 6 - 7 million. So to think that this small number of voters somehow carries the libel of electing and re-electing Obama is detrimental to the Jewish position in the U.S. Both U.S. political parties go on about the Jews! the Jews!, when in fact they are a very small part of the electorate. The way it is presented by so many outlets (left, right, etc.), you would think that they are the determing vote. If you want to talk about $donations and leadership, then there may be more to it. But certainly not a vital group as far as vote count...

Furthermore, if Israel actually wanted to make a dent, finding out whether Obama's cousin/friend Odinga in Kenya has arrested people for being gay, which he has publicly advocated doing, could send a wedge into the vote. The Jewish support for Obama (as your video says) is based on abortion (to the point of population shaping as per Rahm's creepy brother), gay advocacy, victimology (when it is really block bondage) etc. We can complain about their liberalness, but documenting the non-compliance of the Obama posse (including Odinga in Kenya) in the liberal orthodoxy could peel away some voters.

What's crucial about the Jews isn't so much their vote (although it can be crucial in swing states with relatively large Jewish populations like Florida and Ohio), but the disproportionate amounts of money they donate to Democratic candidates and to the Democratic National Committee.

Didn't the funding regulations change to allow anyone to contribute? If that is the case, Obama won't need any one groups money.

In other words, if the Jews won't vote for Obama it won't affect the funding.
