Liberal + Jewish + Democrat = Romney Voter

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.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    I think the first  Bush – and the second – squandered huge opportunities. The first Bush for getting Reagan’s mandate – and diluting it. Most histories believe Bush 41 won Reagan’s 3rd term.
    Bush 43 – to have both houses of Congress – squandered what should have been a huge opportunity for trimming the size of govt and the deficit –
    if Romney wins and does what I think he can do (with obviously the cooperation of Congress) there will be a huge new coalition –

    The great black migration to the Democratic plantation occurred when the Republican standard-bearer of the time, Goldwater, voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – not because he was racist, but because he thought it unconstitutional.  On top of that was the swing of blacks from non-violence and seeking equality to something far more militant following the murder of MLK, himself a Republican.  When blacks swung left, the Democrats, who were just then discovering the power of special interest politics, found that they had a gold mine, complete with a debate ending Ace – the race card.  They have milked that for all its worth ever since. 

    There are cracks starting to show in the edifice.  There is a video making the rounds of working class blacks in Chicago waking up to the fact that their situation is the fault of Democrats, not the right.  There are many blacks speaking up – and who could be a better role model to arrive on the scene than LTC Alen West.  The days of a uniform black voting bloc are numbered.  The question is not if, but when.

      GW – after the Civil War blacks were stalwart Republicans – until Roosevelt. I do agree the cracks are starting to form, though.

    Next to blacks, Jews have been the most reliable vote Democrats can count on. Since every candidate and president talks about how much they love Israel, it must be a miracle that any lifelong Jewish Democrat can see the truth. Was she on her way to Damascus when it happened? Can we send all Jewish Democrats on the same journey and hope for the same results?

    And why are blacks so reliable for the Democrats? Every politician upholding Jim Crow was a Democrat. Bull Connor was a Democrat. LBJ blocked Eisenhower’s civil rights bill. Bill Clinton’s and Al Gore’s mentors (William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr) were typical southern racists. Yet blacks vote for Democrats like it’s a Soviet election. The Commies must wonder how Democrats can rig the elections better than they could with just one candidate on the ballot.

    I’m hoping a large percentage of Jewish Democrats stay home since even Romney doesn’t expect to win a majority of them (any Jew on the upper East side would be banished to Brooklyn if it was discovered they voted for a Republican). Voter enthusiasm is Romney’s ace in the hole.

    She’s right. I hope that more liberals “get it” too.
