Obama and the Jewish vote

Washington (CNN) - As President Obama fights to keep the nation's focus on his jobs plan, a new crisis looms. He'll be thrust into a high stakes showdown over Palestinian statehood when the United Nations General Assembly gathers in New York next week.

“The Palestinians will not, and cannot, achieve statehood through a declaration at the United Nations. It is a distraction, and, in fact, it's counterproductive,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to reporters on Thursday.

    Why does he even bother with the Jewish vote? He wants to give Israel's land to the Palestinians. Might as well kiss that vote goodbye

    ► Sniffit (in response to "Huntsman gets GUTSY regarding SS)

    "he said that richer recipients don’t really need a Social Security check at all. "

    Go back and listen to Obama's speeches and press conferences again, Blitzer. He has all but said the same thing but it's only "news"-worthy and "daring" and "gutsy" when a GOPer says it? In fact, I can point you...◄

    Sniffit – you are SO RIGHT and I heard the same from President Obama most likely in that same interview. But we must all remember that it's the GREAT RIGHT HOPE time and they are saturating the MSM. President Obama's message is getting overpowered and he's the PRESIDENT???????

    Most of the ideas President Obama suggest gets KNOCKED DOWN and then REUSED when the other side feels it would benefit them............What a pity!!!

    Obama/Biden 2012!! (On another note – Obama and the PIGMY vote; Obama and the RUG RAT vote; Obama and the ...)

    Obama supported Park 51 in New York City near WTC. Park 51 will be Muslim center and mosque.

    I understood that his family of his father's side. He will have plenty Muslim voters.

    No difference between Arabs desire in 1947 and 2011.
    Destroying the Jewish state
    Only new tactics!(terror,boycode,deligitimization)
    In 2011 The Arabs want to get international approval to:
    *No to a Jewish state!
    *No to direct negotiations!
    *No to a peace that will remove the issues for conflict continuation!
    They want to bypass international resolutions:
    *UN creation of a Jewish state
    *Resolution 242 stating that negotiations should lead to peace and final boarders, end of conflict.
    The world need of Muslim oil combined with the wish to please the Islamism outcome is:
    –they are ready to give away all the moral values
    - pay to Muslims with the Israeli coin (remember Czechoslovakia)

    The Jewish voters in this great country are not stupid......they know Obambi hates Israel, as he has thrown Her under the bus many times........but everyone also knows his shining favor for the Israel hating Palastineans! No, Mr President.......you have "ripped your drawers" with the Jewish voters, & only Obama is the lone Democrat President to accomplish such a feat. Soon Rudy NYC, Sniffit, Will Palladin, & all lazy Democrat Welfare Takers will be forced to get a JOB! No more WELFARE!

    How is that America Jobs Bill working for you I see you hit another record with you job approval 50% of the people don't think you are going your job which I thought that was low.

    You should stop trying to be rock star and just enforce the oath you took all of it not just what you seem important to you.
