Back in 1992, the traditional Republican Party stance was expressed when James Baker, at the time Secretary of State to President George H.W. Bush, said “F*** the Jews. They didn’t vote for us anyway”. It seems these days that the Democratic Party’s words and their actions reveal their new mantra and stance about their Jewish voters – “F*** the Jews, they are voting for us anyway.”
While the Republicans in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives almost unanimously are voting against the Iran nuclear deal, only two Democratic senators, Senator Schumer and Senator Menendez, have decided to vote against it while 14 other Democratic senators have come out supporting the deal including Kirsten Gillibrand from NY and Bill Nelson from Florida. Those senators are doing so in spite of their states having very large and active Jewish constituents.
