Two campaign videos produced by the Jewish Council for Education and Research – one featuring actor Samuel L. Jackson, the other comedian Sarah Silverman – have received a flood of attention over the past few weeks.

    So this is what Obama represents, definitely Romney is the one for the White House. This junk can only be described as vulgur, disgusting and offensive. I guess its the Jews mocking us Christians by using the book of Proverbs as an excuse for their nasty sense of humor, it's obvious they have not read Proverbs for what it is.
