Ed Lasky, American Thinker, comments on the NYT article by Charles Blow who attributed the departure of Jews from the Democratic Party to Obama’s treatment of Israel.
His article is entitled Why Jews are Deserting Obama and the Democrats. He rightly points out that Jews are not only concerned about Israel, they are also concerned about their pocket books and so are leaving the party because of Obama’s domestic policies.
I believe that liberal policies to which the Jews have been partial, are now under attack causing everyone, Jews included to reconsider their attachment. When Jews came to America 120 years ago they were interested in liberal policies because they wanted change. They succeeded.
Now they are becoming more interested in conserving what they have acheived rather than in transformational change.
