Meet Barack Obama’s “Jew Cash Money Team”

Hey—don’t get mad it me. That’s what one of the Democrats’ fundraising groups is calling themselves.  They also refer to themselves as “Jewbags.”

The Democratic Party’s newly appointed Jewish outreach liaison is pictured on Facebook in a series of provocative photos with her friends holding dollar bills and referring to themselves as “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash money team.”

Dani Gilbert, who has been a staffer in the office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), was recently appointed as the Democratic National Committee’s Jewish outreach liaison, according to her Twitter feed…

In one photo, Gilbert is seen kissing paper currency of undetermined denomination. The caption at the bottom of the photo reads “JEWBAGS.” A comment left on the posting refers to Gilbert and a coterie of female companions as the “Jew cash money team.”

Meet “Team Obama.” Classy, huh?

My wife, who is Jewish, constantly asks me “How can any Jewish voters be supporting Obama?!”  His treatment of Israel is an issue for her, as are his constant attacks on achievers.

But my wife, alas, appears to be in the minority.  According to a new poll, 62 percent of Jewish Americans support the re-election of President Obama.

No president has treated Israel as badly as this one. No president has spent as much time appeasing anti-semitic governments in the Middle East as this one.  And yet Jewish voters remain loyal.

No wonder his fundraisers mock Jews so openly. They’ve figured out that, no matter what Obama does, these voters will remain blindly loyal.  Hey—if you don’t respect your vote enough to think about who you’re giving it to, why should the Democratic Party?

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
