History will never be able to tell us who made the fatal error in New York’s 9th district – Barack Obama, or Anthony Weiner.
Just as Weiner kept on making critical errors every step of the way as his personal scandal unfolded earlier this year, President Obama has done everything in NY-09 to show that he is no friend of Israel and has no clue how to create jobs or learn from his many mistakes.
I predict a tectonic shift among American Jews and within the Democratic Party if Obama doesn’t quietly retire. All the spinning in the world can’t spin away the trend of Scott Brown, the Tea Party victory of November 2010, and now the Turner earthquake.
Many Democrats are awakening to the reality that their party has been hijacked by a radicalism completely unfamiliar to their parents’ and grandparents’ Democratic Party.
An internal, partisan civil war is now brewing in that party. What I think tonight is less important than what Joe Lieberman, Bill Clinton, Evan Bayh, and the rest of the former, and now defunct, reasonable wing of the Democratic Party is thinking tonight.
A poster at FreeRepublic, who has friends in newsrooms in DC and New York, writes:
Obama and the Jews; It's Over – The Backstory Circulating in New York Newsrooms Tonight.
The election results that are sending a Conservative Roman Catholic Republican to Washington over a Yarmulke-wearing Jew… in one of the most heavily Jewish congressional districts in America is sending shockwaves through New York newsrooms and Washington tonight. The 70-30 break among Jewish voters against Obama's candidate is monumental, and it has huge national significance.
The Jewish voting block went huge for Obama in 2008. Voting D has been in their genes since FDR, but no more
Obama’s blatant mistreatment of Israel, his total incompetence if not purposeful destruction of the American economy, his promotion of the Arab Spring, which many see as simply the establishment of radical, pro-jihadist Pan-Islamia in the Middle East, and more have turned this once strong Obama bloc into active Obama haters.
Politically active Jews are huge financial supporters of the candidates they like, and this cycle, the money will not be going to Obama.
Jews love protectors of Israel…. And they love Hillary. Can anyone say “primary challenge.”
Could Hillary's resignation as Secretary of State be coming soon? Imagine that! The Hildebeast running against "That One" in 2012 under the campaign slogan of "I Told You So!"
It's still a long way to November, so anything can happen. I could be wrong, but I don't forsee a complete revolt against Obama before the election.
The black vote.
This reliably Democrat voting bloc is still loyal to Obama. If he is primaried and defeated in 2012, or urged to not seek another term, they do so at the risk of alienating the black vote. Any other Democrat candidate in 2012 besides Obama will not win, because while they might regain some independents, a good portion of the black vote will stay at home in protest.
