  • Why isn’t this night different?

    April 9, 2014 | 2:19 pm

    Predictably, the 2015 House Republican budget released by House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on April 1 proposes devastating and monumental cuts to programs designed to help those among us who need it most. It would slash Medicaid; it would change the funding,...

  • The Two Schools of Healthcare

    By Shmully Schwartz

    March 13, 2013 | 12:19 pm

    Medicare, Obamacare, Paul Ryan and President Obama are going head to head on the budget, and they are refusing to budge on entitlements. 

    Is it November?  No. I just checked my calendar and it's March 13, 2013.  President Obama was inaugurated in January and the elections...

  • Opinion: The Post-Kumbaya President

    By Marty Kaplan

    January 21, 2013 | 8:42 pm

    I wonder where Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan are having dinner tonight.

    Four years ago, while Democrats danced at inaugural balls, Reps. Cantor and Ryan dined at The Caucus Room, a Capitol Hill steakhouse, along with other top Republicans, including Rep. Kevin McCarthy, and Sens. Jim...

  • USAID: America, the mensch

    By Rob Eshman

    January 2, 2013 | 2:40 pm

    Hollywood had one question for Dr. Rajiv Shah: Why haven’t we heard of you before?

    That’s what everybody seemed to be asking, one way or another, when the young, gifted director of USAID came to a conference room at Creative Artists Agency on Dec. 13 to tell the story of the...

  • Obama’s second term: More of the same, at least until Iran flares

    November 6, 2012 | 9:28 pm

    The day after the election looks a lot like the day before for President Obama, particularly in areas that have attracted the attention of Jewish voters: Tussling with Republicans domestically on the economy and health care, and dancing gingerly with Israel around the issue of a...

  • Ohio Diary 3: No time for you, world

    By Shmuel Rosner

    November 5, 2012 | 7:10 am

    My first story of the 2012 US election was posted on January 1, reported and written from Iowa, where Mitt Romney began his long journey to win the Republican primary election and become the nominee. I had a catchy headline for it: Witnessing European Menace Invading Des Moines....

  • Obama or Romney?

    By Rob Eshman

    November 1, 2012 | 2:32 pm

    Either way, you’re going to have to suck it up.

    Whether you pick Obama or Romney, you are voting as much for imperfection as for promise.

    This is not an election of love and enthusiasm — that was so 2008. But 2012 is not about desire — it’s about duty.

    To paraphrase Donald...

  • A note to Jewish grandparents

    November 1, 2012 | 11:37 am

    I believe there is a unique bond between grandparents and grandchildren. We look out for each other. We have each other’s backs.

    This year, the Romney-Ryan ticket and much of the Republican Party have been attempting to divide our generations, pitting one against the other.

    We...

  • Is cutting Big Bird kosher?

    October 29, 2012 | 1:53 pm

    When Governor Mitt Romney talked about ending funding for PBS – and Big Bird – during his first debate with President Obama, he was describing only one of the deep cuts in Romney-Ryan budget.

    But it’s not just Big Bird. And it hits us hard, at home, in the Jewish community.

  • Florida Diary 5: Biden avoids Libya, focuses on women

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 19, 2012 | 1:42 pm

    With the Paul Ryan rally yesterday still fresh in my memory (details here), I drove to a Joe Biden event Friday morning in Sun City, Florida. It was a much smaller event and much more scripted. The crowd was sitting on folding chairs, not standing on grass, the stage was nearer,...

  • Florida Diary 4: What Paul Ryan wants, and what women want

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 19, 2012 | 9:43 am

    Yesterday was an intensive day, starting with meetings with two congressional candidates at the east side of Florida (story in the coming days), continued with a long drive along route 80 across the state, and ended with a Paul Ryan rally in Form Myers – well, not quite ended....

  • Is Ryan hurting Romney with the Jewish vote?

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 13, 2012 | 10:31 am

    I discuss the Paul Ryan question in some detail in my new book, The Jewish Vote - get it here as an ebook, or here in softcover – but Thursday’s debate could add another dimension to discussions on this question. At the end of the debate, both Ryan and Joe Biden were asked to...

  • Biden, Ryan spar on Iran

    October 12, 2012 | 9:43 am

    Vice President Joe Biden and Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan clashed over Iran’s nuclear program during their televised debate.

    Ryan assailed President Obama’s approach to the issue in Thursday night's vice presidential debate at Centre College in Danville,...

  • Biden and Netanyahu on the same page? Parsing Biden-Ryan words on Iran

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 12, 2012 | 2:57 am

    Foreign policy was probably over represented as an issue in yesterday’s debate: Americans are more interested in domestic issues this year, and the time devoted to Iran and Israel doesn’t reflect the weight that the voters will give these issues as they make their decisions....

  • Survey: 69 percent of Florida Jews voting for Obama

    September 20, 2012 | 1:55 pm

    Sixty-nine percent of Florida Jews say they will likely vote for President Obama, as opposed to 25 percent for Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new survey.

    The American Jewish Committee survey, which was conducted by QEV Analytics, reached 254 registered Jewish...

  • Dreaming of a wave election

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 7, 2012 | 9:25 am

    What just happened in American politics is not just that Charlotte mopped the floor with Tampa.  It’s that Democrats connected with the country beyond their wildest dreams.

    Here’s my fantasy:  Coming out of their convention, Democrats will realize that their message sings. 

    It...

  • Why Wolpe spoke at the DNC

    By Rob Eshman

    September 5, 2012 | 10:06 am

    This week David Wolpe, senior rabbi of Sinai Temple, delivered one of the invocations at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Even for someone used to and deserving of such honors, this is a big deal.

    Indeed, the majority of the rabbi’s congregants were thrilled...

  • Calif. Democratic Party chair rues any offense with Goebbels analogy

    September 4, 2012 | 9:43 am

    John Burton, the chairman of the Democratic Party in California, apologized to those who took offense at his remarks comparing Republican statements to Nazi propaganda.

    Following an uproar over the remarks, which were condemned by Democrats and Republicans, Burton issued a...

  • Romney blasts Obama on Iran, Israel

    August 31, 2012 | 9:00 am

    President Obama’s approach to Iran has made Americans “less secure,” Mitt Romney said in his speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination.

    “Every American was relieved the day President Obama gave the order, and Seal Team Six took out Osama bin Laden,” Romney said...

  • ‎3 comments on the GOP hammering Obama on Israel

    By Shmuel Rosner

    August 30, 2012 | 4:03 am

    ‎1.‎

    President Obama came under attack yesterday for his many sins –as interpreted by ‎GOP candidates – among them the mistreatment of Israel. Senator John McCain, the ‎GOP 2008 candidate, said that the US “can’t afford to cause our friends and allies, ‎from Latin...

  • Amid roasted pigs, country music and rabbinical blessings, Romney seeks to define himself

    August 28, 2012 | 10:19 am

    Whole barbecued pigs, cheerleaders and elegies to skinny-dipping farmers’ daughters.

    That was the organized noise Sunday night at the opening bash of the Republican National Convention at Tropicana Field, the home of Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg.

    For...

  • Rabbi Meir Soloveichik to offer opening invocation at Republican convention

    August 27, 2012 | 3:24 pm

    Rabbi Meir Soloveichik is scheduled to deliver the opening invocation at the Republican National Convention.

  • Romney/Ryan and the lullaby of lying

    By Marty Kaplan

    August 27, 2012 | 1:14 pm

    It shouldn’t have taken Todd Akin’s crackpot contraception comment to alert us that Paul Ryan thinks rape is just another “method of conception.” 

    If the news media hadn’t grown blasé about the Republican war on women, plenty of pre-Akin Americans would have already known that...

  • Letters to the Editor: Paul Ryan, China

    August 22, 2012 | 2:25 pm

    Parsing Paul Ryan

    I read with interest my friend David Suissa’s celebration of Paul Ryan (“Ryan’s Courage,” Aug. 17).

    As to economics, a Nobel Prize-winning economist and the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center said that the Ryan plan proposes a revenue loss due to tax cuts —...

  • GOP, Democratic conventions will gain Jewish focus for similarities and gaps

    August 21, 2012 | 2:40 pm

    Get set for a political double feature with much of the same plot, but with different outcomes for the issues that tend to preoccupy Jewish voters.

    The same key words and themes will bounce around Jewish events at next week’s Republican convention in Tampa, Fla,. and at the...

  • The status quo Jews and Paul Ryan

    August 20, 2012 | 10:47 am

    Jewish conservatives applauded Mitt Romney’s choice of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his vice presidential nominee. But Jewish liberals who despise him and the GOP also cheered. They are certain the rise of the intellectual leader of the Republicans will give them the opportunity...

  • VP hopeful Paul Ryan meets with Sheldon Adelson

    August 15, 2012 | 2:32 pm

    Paul Ryan met with Sheldon Adelson, a major giver to Republicans in the effort to defeat President Obama, just days after being tapped by presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney as his running mate.

    Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, met Tuesday with Adelson and other major Republican...

  • Romney, Ryan and Florida Jews

    By Raphael Sonenshein

    August 15, 2012 | 1:13 pm

    In 1992, Paul Tsongas of Massachusetts mounted a strong campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. The pundits considered him a brainy guy who was willing to take on the sacred cows of Social Security and Medicare. Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas, by contrast, seemed like a...

  • Paul Ryan’s courage

    By David Suissa

    August 15, 2012 | 12:38 pm

    “Have any of you all met Paul Ryan? I’m telling you this guy is amazing. He is honest; he is straightforward; he is sincere; and the budget he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, honest, serious budget.”

    These words are not from a Tea...
