"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The Audacity of Hope and the Jewish Vote

Here are two stories that are obviously connected.   First, you have the story of the "flotilla" of activists bringing "humanitarian" aid to Gaza, which entails running a blockade set up by Israel to keep weapons and other potential terrorist supplies out of that territory.   The name of the boat trying to run the blockade:  The Audacity of Hope.   Ring a bell?   But, of course... it's the name of Barack Obama's campaign autobiography.   To draw the obvious conclusion:  the left-wing activists who support Palestinians against Israel are Obama supporters.  

Here's the second story:  apparently Obama is shedding supporters from the American Jewish community, supporters who heretofore have been staunch liberal democrats.   Where Democratic presidents can typically count on upwards of 75% of the Jewish vote, Obama is down to 56%.   Surprised?  I'm not.   Obama is the most anti-Israel (read:  anti-Semitic) President we've ever had, and his hard-left minions are openly pro-terrorist, at least with regard to the Palestinians.   American Jews are finally catching on.
