From Breitbart – Joel B. Pollak
In an interview with Jewish Life Television (JLTV), Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz failed to provide a single reason for Jewish voters to support President Barack Obama other than abortion, which she cast as somehow intrinsic to the values of the Jewish community. Later, in a separate response, she tried to defend Obama’s abysmal record on Israel, claiming Republicans had put “their love of party ahead of their love of Israel,” and endangered Israel by creating the impression that the issue divided the two parties. But she did not–and indeed, could not–cite Israel as a reason Jews should support Obama.
Here is the exchange between the host and Wasserman Schultz on Jewish voters and Jewish issues:
Has the president done anything wrong with respect the the Jewish vote?
No. On the contrary, the president has an incredible record of support and advocacy on the issues, domestically, that Jews care about–fighting, for example, to make sure that women have the right to make their own reproductive choices; fighting to pass the Affordable Care Act, to make sure that being a woman is not a pre-existing condition,and that insurance companies can’t drop us or deny us coverage, making sure that we have access to affordable birth control without a deductible or a co-pay, while Mitt Romney and the Republicans fought to take us back to a time when we couldn’t make our own reproductive choices, when you didn’t have access to birth control. And we’re re-fighting the same cultural and social battles with the Republicans because they’re controlled by the extremists in the Tea Party. So President Obama’s earned the support of the Jewish community.
