    The kapos in the concentration camps were Jews
    who turned on their fellow Jews, in exchange for
    special favors. Obama and his administration, have
    consistently thrown Isreal under the bus, while
    campaigning for contributions from wealthy American
    Jews. The kapos were motivated by sheer survival,
    the American Jews who support obama,
    are motivated by greed, power,
    and what's fashionable ... even though they are being
    used like pawns by obama. All Jews should rally their
    support, and resources behind whoever runs against
    obama !!!

      Joe Lieberman, The New York Magazine and The Wall Street Journal do not agree with you.

        When obama lies, with false claims that he has helped Israel, he is just adding insult to injury !!!

        AIPAC, and the entire international Jewish community should put their resources behind
        whoever runs against obama !!!

    For goodness sake...the factless wonder strikes again. Your cut-and-paste comments are stale, tired and useless to only The Tea/Troll/Faux fading from relevance community. Keep up the good work support a truly silly and innane political position. I'm sure the Faux people will be sending your hat and t-shirt soon.

      Obama, Holder, and Napolitano should all be in jail,
      for the illegal sale of 2,500 weapons, to the Mexican drug cartels
      ... as well as the subsequent COVER UP of these crimes ...
      resulting in the murder of thousands of innocent Mexicans,
      and the murder of American border agent, Brian Terry.

      If anything, Obama, Holder, and Napolitano,
      should be held to a higher standard, than the rest of us.

      In the days of Watergate, the Press demanded, and
      got JUSTICE for the American people. Today, the
      media looks the other way, or helps in the cover up !!!

        I would love to them in jail...along with those who brought down the world economy many of which are in power within the obummer administration. But then bill clinton got away with lying to a grand jury..and we just can't get away from him or his ugly spouse
