Meet Bryna Franklin, lifelong Democrat.
Jewish Democrats never tire of telling us that Barack Hussein Obama is really Israel’s greatest supporter. They maintain that by insisting that Israel withdraw to the 1967 armistice lines — AKA Auschwitz borders — Obama is practicing tough love.
Seraphic Secret has said any number of times that this tough-love meme is exactly the justification used by men who abuse their wives when they say, “I’m beating her to a bloody pulp for her own good.”
Meanwhile, 99% of Israelis who also hold American passports are voting for Romney because they, more than anybody, know which presidential candidate is better for Israel. And what’s better for Israel is invariably better for America.
Bryna Franklin of Jerusalem is a lifelong Democrat and a former chair of Democrats Abroad Israel. She voted for a Republican for president for the first time in her 80 years when she voted this year for Mitt Romney.
Bryna, who served for years as vice chair of the Franklin County Democratic Central Committee in Missouri and was a delegate to the 1992 Democratic National Convention, explained her decision as stemming from deep disappointment in President Obama on a range of issues.
Sustained high unemployment rates, declining property values, high foreclosure rates and the fact that a large part of every dollar our government spends is borrowed from China have led Bryna to conclude that the President’s record on the economy is dismal.
She believes that President Obama’s foreign policy actions have weakened America and undermined our relationships with our allies. In particular, she thinks that the President’s hostility to Israel does immense harm to both Israel and the U.S.
