“Yiddish Curses for Republican Jews” is the best new site in the world today. Oy vey!
How much do I love this site? This much:

Zeke has a post up at BuzzFeed that reminds us that Mitt loves to boast that he and Israel are BFF, and President Obama is a big poo-poo head who hasn’t visited Israel in the past few years and so he must be a fair weather BFF.
“It’s individuals and their entrepreneurship which have driven America,” Romney said. “What America is not a collective where we all work in a Kibbutz or we all in some little entity, instead it’s individuals pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises.”
According to the Jewish Virtual Library about 2.5 percent of Israelis live on 250 different Kibbutz, which were begun before the establishment of the state of Israel.
Willard missed another chance to avoid insulting Israel by that much!
Remember during Willard. M. Romney’s recent trip, the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad British gaffe-athon, he made some rather unfortunate remarks about “cultural differences” that infuriated the Palestinians, insulted Jews, and… well, let’s just say he stepped in some deep political poop.
Mitt sure is good at diplomacy, isn’t he? And don’t even start me on “Romney Persona Non Grata in Italy for Bain’s Deal Skirting Taxes.“
Now The Hill is reporting that a Jewish group is demanding an apology for the comments he made in Israel which they called ” inaccurate and misleading, racist and ignorant”:
A liberal Jewish organization is set to deliver 17,000 signatures to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s headquarters Monday afternoon urging him to apologize for remarks many have deemed insulting to the Palestinians.
Jewish Voice for Peace has called Romney’s comments at a Jerusalem fundraiser last Monday “racist and ignorant.” Romney says he did not mean to denigrate Palestinians when he credited “the power of at least culture” and the “hand of providence” for Israel’s superior economy.
The petition reads, in part:
“Israel’s Occupation of Palestinian land makes it impossible for the Palestinian economy to succeed, not ‘cultural differences’… Your comments were not a reflection of the values Jews, Americans, and our allies hold dear. We call on you to apologize to the Palestinian people for your willful lack of understanding of the facts on the ground and the racist assumptions behind them.”
There’s your foreign policy expert, the perfect world leader.
Yes, this is exactly who we want representing our country, isn’t it? And by “we” I mean mentally deficient, Obamaphobic Republicans.
Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu, and other leaders describe how President Obama has strengthened the relationship between the United States and Israel.
C’mon, bring out the “Jews are fleeing the Obama camp!” scare headlines, I dare ya. LOL, Gallup concludes that Romney is probably wasting his time sucking up to Netanyahu. h/t Taegan.
While Republicans may look favorably on Romney’s visit to Israel, another group with keen interest in U.S.-Israeli relations — Jewish Americans — solidly backs Obama in the election.
Gallup Daily tracking from June 1-July 26 finds Jewish registered voters favoring Obama over Romney by 68% to 25%. That is essentially the same as Gallup’s prior update on Jewish voting preferences.
Although one goal of Romney’s Israel visit could be to attract greater support among Jewish voters in the U.S., Jewish Americans have been a traditionally strong Democratic group, so they are unlikely to become much more supportive of Romney regardless of the outcome of the trip.
