Now this is what a compelling political ad looks like

This was produced by the Republican Jewish Coalition and I must say it’s excellent. It’s about a Jewish man who has been a life long Democrat who not only voted for Obama in 2008 but even held a fundraiser for him at his house. But because of how Obama has treated both Netanyahu and Israel and because of his terrible domestic economic policies, this life long Democrat is now going to vote Republican. And he sounds a little excited about it.

What gets me about the ad is that his story isn’t only believable, it’s compelling – two characteristics which I’ve found are very uncommon in political ads.

Watch below:

    GREAT AD , WAKE UP AMERICA ELECTIONS DO HAVE CONSEQUENCES as we have seen the results of the last 3 1/2 years with BARACH HUSSEIN OBAMA as POTUS !”

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Good ad. I recall how disrespectful Dear Leader (DL) was when Prime Minister Netanyahu visited. He left the prime minister and one other Isreali official sitting in an office when DL huffed off to have dinner in his private quarters!!! That was so shameful and reflected poorly on the entire United States. Hopefully American Jews will not support an enemy of their country this time around.

    • Richard Easbey

      Remember when he made the Dalai Lama leave the White House through the BACK DOOR??? It really doesn’t get more despicable than this jackass in the White House.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        Actually I had forgotten that. Wow, did obama give the Dalai Lama one of the DVDs of his (obama’s) greatest speeches as he sent him out the back door?????? That would be putting salt in a very raw wound!!! I suppose if obama dislike an individual, he treats them in a way to make the dislike very clear to everyone in the world. Classless to say the least.

      • Despicable is the appropriate word for how he has treated most of the guests of the White House whose politics he does not agree with. The hip hop and gangsta stars got better treatment. The man has serious issues with Whites in general and Jews in particular. How ANY Jew could vote for this crypto Moslem anti-semite is beyond me.

    • Boris_Badenoff

      Barrack Obama Hates Benjamin Netanyahu.
      Netanyahu is everything Obama isn’t , most obviously a real man and a leader. Two things Obama will never be.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        I agree with your assessment, Boris.

  • p m

    Let’s hope Mr. Goldstein is one of many, many people, Jewish or not, who care about the disgraceful treatment dished out by this POS to both America and Israel, and so many more allies.

    • warpmine

      How in creation could he bring himself to vote for the SCoaMF to begin with?

      I voted for Hitler but he was very disrespectful to my fellow Jews. I thought it was all rhetoric and thought well I can change my vote next time if it don’t work out. Well, next time never came, Germany rose quickly and burned even faster with my family being the kindling wood. There’s always next time. Brought to you by Jews that lost their mind and voted for Hitler er Obama.

      • p m

        ‘Cept 0zero was publically supportive of Israel to the masses who voted for him and didn’t do any vetting. They had to elect him to see what he really is…

  • 911Infidel

    Excellent. Smart man. Learn from your mistake and do the right thing. Support Israel. To hell with Obama.

    • CalCoolidge

      I don’t think he’s smart. At best, he went from one naive state of mind to another.

      He liked Obama until O dissed Israel? I can buy that. But don’t start in with the economic and unemployment stuff. When Goldstein was having fund raisers, what did he think Obama’s economic policy was going to be? I knew what this son of Commies was going to do.

      • 911Infidel

        I knew Obama was a wastrel long before morons like Peggy Nooner were slobbering all over themselves about his election. In this guy’s case I say better late than never. If he pulls that anti-Obama lever in November and gets his friends to do the same, then more power to him. Glad that he took off his rose-colored glasses.

    • cheyennecowboy


      • 911Infidel

        Amen to that.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I don’t know whether to be happy that some dems actually have a cell in their brain or angry that guys like this contributed to the disaster that is Barack Obama. Oh well welcome to the side of common sense Mr Goldstein.

  • Orangeone

    This is exactly what happens when a candidate is not vetted. There was enough information available on O’Bambi’ hatred before the 2008 election but many chose to look the other way.

    • WordsFailMe

      Funny how 78% the American Jews missed that Muslim name though isn’t it? You would have thought that a Jew would be the first guy on the bus to say, “Hey that guy that just got on the bus with the back pack–His name tag says “HUSSEIN.”

      By the time they finished saying his name, I was already against him. A muslim as a President of a christian nation? Can you imagine how stupid that made us look to muslims?

      It would be like Omar giving Jews keys to the washroom at the Mecca MacDonalds. Muslims hate the fact that Americans breathe.

      • keyesforpres

        Except giving Jews the keys to the Mecca McDonald’s would be to have the place fixed up and improved.

        Giving a muslim the keys is letting them open the door to death and destruction.

        • WordsFailMe

          Wish I’d said that lol!

  • welltempered2

    Still blows my mind how seemingly intelligent people fell for that “Hope + Change” malarky.

    • keyesforpres

      I know and especially the Jews in this country. O was raised on the Koran, the original book on Jew hatred. Then he joins a “church” that spews hatred for Jews and listened to that bilge for 20 years.

      • sDee

        Early in 2008 I was doing election research for myself and decided to try and understand how on earth the American Jewish vote was polling so high for a committed islamist. It really made no sense whatsoever. What happened after that drove me deeper into the cesspool of politics than I ever could have imagined.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    I stand with Israel.
    barry could not make it more clear he holds Israel in contempt. Can not see how he can get the Jewish vote. Bibi is a wonderful leader, hoping by 2016 we have a leader we can be proud again of too.

  • nibblesyble

    Wow, what a compelling and believable ad…Obama watch out!

  • wodiej

    Folks we are just getting started and the ads from different super pacs are plentiful. After Aug. 26th, Romney can begin spending fundraising dollars and obama is spending his now. Watch out.

    • keyesforpres

      That gives me a warm fuzzy feeling! 🙂

  • It’s about time. I don’t know how people can defend failure or why you would want to. When you have a guy like Obama who forces you to look failure in the face at every turn, you know it’s time for a change. To stubbornly cling to a candidate that’s an even bigger failure than Jimmy Carter is not only foolish, it’s un-American. I think people are starting to wake up to that fact. The only way you’re going to get any real Hope and Change in 2012 is by getting rid of Obama in November.

    • michael carpenter

      The reason people will “defend failure” is because of a little thing called cognitive dissonance (aka. buyers remorse). If a friend buys a “piece of sh*t car”, it takes great skill to get that friend to admit they made a mistake after such an poor investment. It also takes great humility to admit such a mistake. Keep this in mind when speaking to someone who voted for Obama. Cognitive dissonance is a strong force people.

  • Joe

    I just saw Ed Koch – well respected former NYC Mayor – on Neil Cavuto

    I was blown away when I heard Koch – who is Jewish

    Said he would again support Obama

    Cavuto was surprised as well

    Koch said he was a “good guy” or some crap like that

    Is the “ghoul aid” that strong it lasts over 4 years

    I simply can’t believe it!

    Zero is screwing Israel big time

    I’m starting to give up entirely on the Mideast and Israel and let them figure it out

    THEN we can go in and toast the whole place

    If they don’t do it first

    • Koch seemed to act like he had a brain and some guts back when “W” was in office. But he drank the party koolaid, and you’ll never see that guy again. Only the unhinged moonbat remains.

    • sDee

      “THEN we can go in and toast the whole place ”

      No need to if we drill. Take away protection by the globalists and dhimmie politicos, and their oil dollars, and they will either self destruct in a matter of years. They always do.

      • Joe

        I agree BUT

        We must prevent “them” from spreading their nonsense over here.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    This is the ad strategy that romney should start from now until november, it has a bigger impact when you hear it from the mouth of real americans. I hope the republican rinos take note.

    • Is_Sense_Common

      My concern is that these disenfranchised dimocrats are just encouraging republicrats to be nothing more than “dimocrat-lite.” We need to be able to enlighten them to the Conservative point of view while they’re disillusioned so that we can work together to push this nation back to the principles on which it was founded. Mittens can’t do it; he doesn’t have it in him. Perhaps Newt or Herman or Mike Lee or Allen West could lend a hand with the communications/educational end of this transition.

      • WordsFailMe

        and that IS the point!

      • proudhispanicconservative

        you are absolutely right and We must remind some of the tea party candidates that got elected by us .. they have to understand that if they stand their ground they win if they dont they lose..

  • p m

    Clicked on the Electad link on this page – saw that this ad is part of an effort by Sheldon Adelson – who’s pledged to spend $100Million to defeat 0zero. There’s a link to the WAPO, which twists itself all around to diminish the importance of the Jewish vote. What a joke

    Allow me to add that the wapo is not read in this house!! But good stuff at the Electad site.

  • kong1967

    He’s not the first liberal I’ve seen really pissed at how Obama has treated Israel. He is right. Obama will be unhinged after November. He might have two Republican houses to contend with, but Obama is very comfortable about ignoring them and making law on his own. The EPA will help put the final strangle-hold on capitalism.

    • Rshill7

      Yes, after November’s landslide against him, he still has well into January to act out his reaction to major rejection. More damage will ensue.

      This is a great ad. Romney and others will bring out O’s true colors as this shindig cranks up and the warp drive kicks in.

      • p m

        That 3 month hiatus terrifies me – even with the break for Christmas and New Year. How much power will a rep. house and senate have against this creature? Serious question because I don’t know enough about the system, or what they can do. Filibusters? Ignore the losers? Remembering what they did and tried to do after the 2010 house loss, it’s pretty scary.

        • Rshill7

          It’s right at 2.5 months. I suppose he could do recess appointments and all manner of executive orders. He could also give a tacit nod to a country wanting to attack Israel without regard for any existing agreements already in place with Israel, and worry about any consequences afterwards.

          He could order the border patrol to close their eyes or turn the other way letting new stampedes of illegal immigrants across our borders. He already flouts our laws. He’ll regard them even less (if that’s possible) if he loses, and/or if he wins. If he wins though he’ll go full bore for the next four years with it. Imagine what we’d look like after that.

          • p m

            Thanks for replying Rs. That’s another worry. After 4 more years there wouldn’t be an America, I fear.

          • keyesforpres

            We should get a bunch of volunteers to go to the border for those months to watch the border like was done a few years ago.

          • sDee

            If Hussein is kicked under the bus by his patrons and loses, they will be sure he behaves.

            • p m

              Behaves to their standards or ours? As he’s a psychopath, I doubt 0zero can be trusted to do anything but act out of spite and lawlessnesss. To our great regret, he will always be ‘Mr.President’ and there will always be fools to soothe his ego because of that cachet, no matter how he has disgraced the office.

              Jim DeMint was on Mark Levin’s third hour talking about a plan he is ‘trying to persuade John Boehner and other republicans’ to adopt to tide us over the lame duck gap. Well, good luck with trying to get them to do anything, but the last lame duck saw the START treaty signed and the budget blown up and more. At least someone’s thinking about it and trying to plan for it. Worth a listen if you have time.

      • kong1967

        I was actually talking about if Obama wins the election, but you’re right. Even if he loses he has over two months to screw things up even more.

  • Botzilla

    4 years and Obama hasn’t even set foot in Israel, it shows the disdain he has for this country, but Jews will line up in numbers to vote for this guy again just like Hitlers Jews lining up to march off to their deaths.

  • blackbird

    Excellent ad and you were right Scoop.

    • p m

      That’s why it’s called The Right Scoop! :))

  • Jeff_the_Macedonian

    Too bad this guy didn’t research BO in 2008 and know what he was like — most conservatives did — oh well better late than never I guess.

    • keyesforpres

      You know it really didn’t take a lot of research. Heck, just hearing what his “preacher” said should have been a nonstarter for any decent person.

  • WordsFailMe

    You voted for Barrack Obama? There is something sick about this guy. I like the commercial hope it works but I have no use for such a nincompoop. What racist, guilt-driven spin will you select for your next vote. WAKE TF UP

    • Uhh, you don’t really want to be slapping down the folks who are waking up, do you?

      I mean, sure, we’ll end up with another batch of Bill Kristols, but that’s better than the “conga line” (Mark Levin’s phrase) of Van Joneses were fighting now, isn’t it?

      • Is_Sense_Common

        It’s just frustrating because if somehow they slipped hillary into this election, they’d have no problem voting for her… And she’s a snake in polyester pant suits!

        But, yes, we need to take our victories where we find them.

        • Sadly true. Of course, Ann Coulter was actually right when she placed Hillary above McCain as a candidate for President. That’s how terrible McCain was. (Not that I like giving Coulter any credence these days.)

      • WordsFailMe

        Yeah I know I was hard. Not nearly as hard as the Muslim brotherhood will be on Jews and every one else if it gets its fingers into the throat of Obama and Bloomberg bureaucracy. Picture the Health and Sanitation Department of New York City in the hands of the Mus bros. Who will the east side residents run to for justice then?

        If they suddenly woke up when the homeland was threatened, what can send them back to the bosoms of the Democracks? In other words, will an alliance with Israel strengthened under a Republican admin bring on another bout of somnambulism?

        Odd how it’s a Muslim proverb that is aptly entered here: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. When that enemy is defeated, where to, friends?

        • I was just reading about how the Muslim populations in Europe vote predominantly leftist. On the one hand, they disagree with leftists on almost every “social” issue. On the other hand, they know leftists are foolish enough to provide the rope with which they will be hung once sharia is made law. What an amazing cognitive dissonance.

          • WordsFailMe

            Very Interesting. When they LGBT announced that were going to stage a same-sex kiss-a-thon at Chick-Fil A, I was wondering why they didn’t announce simultaneous protest at Halal restaurants.

            So the only sin against LGBT is saying you are against gay marriage, not stoning and murdering gays, but “talking” about them. Thx K-Bob.

  • maynardb50

    There was lots of buyers remorse when Jimmy Carter ran against Reagan in 1980. I see the same thing happening now. Just get up and vote! Have all members of your family vote.


    These are the types of people who will HOPEFULLY GOD WILLING swing this to a victory for Mitt.

    Close win by O-BLAME-O or a blow out for Mitt. Mitt will lose if he only has an real small poll lead on last day, unless ALL undecided voters swing to challenger as Dick Morris said.
    I just think OBOZO pandering has him in the hunt, but economy is STALLING.
    People are scared, and only a major event would swing people back to Oh-no-no.

    I think internal polling for campains are showing large leads by Mitt.

    EXPECT major efforts to distort polls (already happening) and Oh-uh-oh doing things far outside the boundries as panic sets in.

    The mis-information tactics already have been obvious, thank goodness Americans seem to be aware of how thay have been manipulated.

    I am hoping we won’t ever have to deal with thug Chicago style politics again.

    Hey, if Wisconson can wise up, there is hope for all the states, except maybe California, they are like lost puppies out there only wanting handouts and to preserve minnows.

  • Is_Sense_Common

    Give it about 24- hours and the Barry-bots will uncover this man’s personal history including tax returns, W2 forms, divorce proceedings, DNA samples, yesterday’s trash, what he recycled, what he didn’t, his health records, and on and on it will go.

    I guess I should be glad this fella finally woke up, but it’s frustrating that it takes so long.

    • sDee

      That process is underway on the guy in the Romney ad whose family built their NH fabrication business.

      • Is_Sense_Common

        Yup – they know who their enemy is – the American People. Disgusting.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Good ad. Hopefully the American Jews wake the heck up… Ignorance is no excuse anymore.

    • sDee

      It is not too hopeful. Liberalism long supplanted support for Israel among liberal American Jews.

  • At the risk of seeming hyperbolic, I cannot remain quiet on this issue.

    I know a lot of Jews are Democrats. I know the majority of Jews in the West are not strongly supportive of Zionism, per se. I know many are strong contributors to the big, liberal colleges and believe in a strong, all-encompassing government to protect them. Big government is one response to the Shoah. I get that.

    But you don’t have to be Jewish, or even a Zionist to understand how much Obama contributes to the rising hatred of Jews—including liberal Jews—worldwide. He doesn’t come right out and join in the open hatred. Oh, no, he’s too careful for that. But he abets it and turns away from it, every. single. chance. he gets.

    His treatment of Netanyahu is all the proof you need to realize this. You cannot wish it away.

    Protect you? No, my friends, he will be glad to drain your purse and let them build a mosque on your grave.

    Your true friends are Americans like Sarah Palin and Allen West, who believe in Liberty, and a democratic system that respects the most important “minority” of all: the individual. Only under that sort of government can Jews turn back the tide of Jew-hatred that is burying the great cities of Europe (“no go” zones? Really? You have to be insane to believe the big cities aren’t in trouble).

    Please protect your children and grandchildren from the ascendance of anti-Jewish leaders in the West. End this regime and its cavalcade of anti-Jewish, anti-Zionist “one-staters” now.

    • Nukeman60

      Well said. I hope each and every Jewish voter thinks long and hard on how important their vote is this time around, not only for the survival of this country but for their own personal welfare as well.

    • p m

      Well said. Please don’t be quiet on this or any issue. We know you don’t ‘do’ hyperbole. This may qualify though! On current trends, Scandinavia will be islamic by 2030 – think it’ll wake up? I’m not sure. But it will have lots of company as other western European countries join in the suicide pact.

      • The stats are startling. I think we’re beginning to see a lot of too-little,-too-late actions sprinkled throughout Europe. Maybe something will change. But Malmö and Oslo are becoming majority “immigrant” cities. At the same time, Jews are fleeing Malmö, due to a sharp rise in anti-Jewish violence. People need to do the math and understand what’s going on. Sweden might be in an irreversable decline.

  • steprock

    What boggles my mind is that it was SO-FREAKING-CLEAR what kind of a man he was before the election. It’s only become even more clear, and more shocking, the longer he has reigned in the White House.

  • buzzkill59

    I think there are people like this guy who are slowly waking up to the truth of Obama every day!I think that it is growing each day and by election day it will be a tsunami that will wash Obama and his divisive and incompetent administration out of Washington!Everyone is saying this is going to be a close election,but I don’t think so!This is going to be a beat down of Obama in particular and liberals/socialists in general! All we need to do is get out the vote!

  • gothicreader

    If BHO is re-elected, he’s going full throttle.

  • hongryhawg

    This man says it better than I’ve heard anyone say it. How dare the pretend leader talk down to a proven leader like Netanyahu. The muslims are backing their obama because they also know what this man says is true. Israel will be facing even more trying times is this person gets re-elected.

  • sjmom

    WOW! Mr. Goldstein said it all. There is hope out there.

  • stage9

    Wellll…”republican” isn’t EXACTLY what you’ll be getting sir….more like “liberal lite”.

    Sorry, I’m a diehard Conservative….can you tell?

  • capelady

    In order to get the Jewish vote in 2008, Obama promised to move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem…. yeah, right. That was a bold-faced lie. The man is pathological. We can’t trust him to support Israel or any of our allies in a second term (remember his aside message for Putin). We can’t trust him with our economy. We can’t trust him with our Constitution. And we certainly can’t trust him with our liberty!!!

  • M_J_S

    We are seeing the unraveling of the Obama presidency before our eyes. It HAS begun.

    I’m no fan of Romney’s (of course I’m voting for him), but I give him his marks for being methodical. He’s a machine. And his campaign is going to slice and dice, from every angle, what is left of Obama.

    Wait till the debates when Barry will look to all who watches, to be as big of a horse’s ass as everyone knows he is.

  • Radical Rabbi

    Prior to the election of Mad King Barry, I spoke to many Jewish people in my community about how Obama and many within his campaign were anti-Semitic and against Israel. Sadly, many of those on his staff or contributors were and are self-hating Jews as well. I was dismissed as a “right wing nut job.”
    Within six months of his presidency many of the Jewish community began to see the light; while many Jewish people in this country still support him, many more do not. Barry will not have the Jewish vote in November.
    To be sure there are still some out there that refuse to see the truth as did many Jews in Europe even while they walked to the “showers.” It is my prayer and hope that the Jewish people of America will come to see that another four years of Barry, and Israel will cease to exist.
