Tell me why any Jew would vote for Obama

I think this Link says it all.

LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote about Barack Obama's close association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi back in April.

Wallsten discussed a dinner held back in 2003 in honor of Khalidi, a critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.

Barack Obama has denied his close association with Khalidi, too.

According to Wallsten the evening not surprisingly turned into a classic Jew-bash:

"During the dinner a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."

One speaker likened "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been "blinded by ideology."

Barack Obama also praised the former PLO operative during the event.
And, Obama confessed that his family often shared dinner with the Khalidis:

His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases... It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table," but around "this entire world."

...The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The Times.

On Wednesday I talked with Peter Wallsten from the Los Angeles Times about the article on Obama and Khalidi:

Wallston was one of the few mainstream media reporters to report on this radical Obama associate.

Wallston said that the article was written after he watched video taken at the Khalidi going away party. When I asked him about the video he said that as far as he was concerned he was through with the story.

I asked him if he was planning on releasing this video of Obama toasting the radical Khalidi at this Jew-bash. He told me he was not releasing the video. He also would not comment on his source for the video. Wallston also said he did not know if Khalidi's good friend Bill Ayers was at the event or not.

So, there you have it.

The LA Times has video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Jew-bash but will not release the video.

The radical Left's hatred of Israel has been on display for years. With Hussein elected they will be position to do grave harm to Israel and Jews all over the world.

God helps those who helps themselves. Voting for Hussein does not do that.

Race and the race

From the you couldn't make this up department.

The Bradley effect, named after a black LA mayor who lost the race for governor of CA despite having a rather large lead in the polls, states that white people will claim to vote for a black man when asked, but vote for the white man in the privacy of the voting booth.

Now comes CNN with a poll that says 70% of Americans say that race will not be a factor......

Two thoughts.

First, how will we know? The posit of the Bradley effect says that people won't tell. So by definition the poll is meaningless.

Secondly, according to some polls Hussein is getting 97% of the black vote, up from a traditional 80% to 85% for the Democratic candidate. That is a 17% to 12% increase based on race.

Now, if the white vote was increased by a similar margin the election would be over.

Yet the latter would be claimed to be racist while the former is being ignored.

What does all this mean? I haven't the slightest beyond knowing that Hussein won the nomination because of the 95% plus of the black votes he received and the what I call the "willingly stupid," or college students.

I suspect the additional black votes won't be too large of an impact because McCain will carry the traditional red states and Hussein the traditional blue states and the Bradley effect will carry the swing states for McCain.

Only this time I think it won't be a "Bradley" effect but a "PC effect." People won't say they won't vote for Hussein because of race, after all Bradley is 30 years old, but because it would un-PC to do so, even though they are against his positions.
The results will be the same.
