Dozens of Jewish Super-Delegates May Hold Key to Democratic Race

Original post made by june, Professorville, on Mar 25, 2008

According to a new survey conducted by the Forward, a disproportionately large share of the Democratic party’s super-delegates are Jewish.

Many of them have declared their support for Hillary Clinton, accounting for more than 15% of her current backers.

In the current presidential primary, the support of Jewish party insiders is particularly critical for Clinton, who won contests in New York, New Jersey and California and has pledged support from a preponderance of Jewish super-delegates in the Golden State and the Northeast — including nearly a dozen in her home state of New York.

This does not bode well for obama.

The problem with Obama is that he is engaging in great deception.

When you court the pro-Israel constituency while, at the same time,

you accept foreign policy advisers who are unanimously anti-Israel and perhaps even Jew-hating (Samantha Power, Robert Malley, Zbigniew Brezhinski, and Anthony Lake) you aren't telling the truth.

And there are so many other ways Obama does not tell the truth about what he really thinks.

I hear another "Jewish conspiracy" in the making...when will everyone start voicing the "atheist conspiracy" or the "Muslim conspiracy"? We already get the "Catholic conspiracy" and the "Evangelical Christian conspiracy",so the Judeo-Christian conspiracies are already equal opportunity...

How about, for once, we remember we are all Americans with the same color blood trying to do what is right for AMERICA
