Obama Is NOT Losing Jewish Support says DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Wasserman Schultz, the first Jewish woman to represent Florida in Congress, acknowledged that Obama’s speech had caused some damage with Jewish voters, but she repeated administration claims that the president’s statements didn’t differ from the policies of the last two presidents.My take on this?

“If you looked at the Jewish community at large, if you polled the Jewish community at large, there are Jewish voters, Jewish Americans, who are expressing concern about the president’s policy,” she said. “But what he said, followed on by Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu’s speech to the joint session on Tuesday, was essentially what has been American policy since President Clinton. “
