Barack Obama And The Jewish Problem

Barack Obama‘s got trouble: Jew trouble. That’s the thesis of a front-page article in today’s New York Times by West Palm correspondent Jodi Kantor, who surveys the Jews of Florida and finds much discontent with the senator from Illinois. Jews, of course, are a vital constituency for the Democratic party, and Florida is a state which could very well decide the election depending on which way the Jews jump. Why don’t the Jews like Obama? Most Jews use the excuse that they don’t think he’s friendly enough to Israel, but one Jew says that her fellow Jews are lying: it’s all about race.
