    So the Jewish vote didn’t make much difference after all. Not even in Florida. Had Romney taken Florida, had he won this election, we could have argued that the 31 percent of Jews he was able to win over in the Sunshine State played an important role in his razor-thin victory. But...

  • Ohio voters spew hate about Obama

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    October 15, 2008 | 6:22 pm

    I know I’ve been heavy on posting videos today, but you’ve got to watch this Al-Jazeera report on Ohio voters. In two minutes folks at this rally with Sarah Palin repeat more rumors and slanders of Barack Obama than I even knew existed. I don’t believe that people who don’t like Obama are racist, but there is no question some of these voters are. Take a listen. It’s terrifying.
