Obama and Brzezzinski Divorce

Obama has finally distanced himself from Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor, a former Polish immigrant. This is a man who has shown himself to be very anti Israel. Obama also said he has also distanced himself from Gen. Tony McPeak, another person not sympathetic to Israel's position. Having these people on his ticket now is certainly not incurring our Jewish vote in great numbers.

I would have been much happier had he not hired them on in the first place. I'd love to have heard the questions asked in their interview to get the positions. Surely Obama knew where they stood. Isn't it just to curry our votes that he dropped these people at this present time? Will they be hired back later?

Obama spoke in Florida in a synagogue today to Jews in order to calm their fears about him. It was very impressive. I can just hope it's from his heart and not from his young Jewish writers.

I can't imagine that Florida Jewish voters haven't realized that Obama is a Christian what with all the flack about Reverend Wright on the air. There has been no end to those comments. For me it's all the people that he surrounded himself with that were so belligerant about Israel and all the subtle little comments he inserted in his speeches. What worries us all is his lack of history to look back on. He hasn't been a senator long enough to have a voting record. It's like buying a pig in the poke. We are all being asked to judge a man on his oratory capabilities and not his past record.
