And there is no message more significant or as telling than the one being sent by the voters who have just sent a Republican to congress in a district that hasn’t elected a Republican in nearly 100 years.

Barack Obama carried much of the Jewish vote in 2008, and “the times-are-a-changing.”

From the AP:

While Obama won the district by 11 points in 2008 against Republican John McCain, a Siena Poll released Friday found just 43 percent of likely voters approved of the president’s job performance, while 54 percent said they disapproved. Among independents, just 29 percent said they approved of Obama’s job performance.

Turner, a 70-year-old Catholic, vowed to push back on Obama’s policies if elected.

The guy campaigned against Obama in a 3-1 Democrat district, garnered support from many prominent Republicans, and Democrats.  It’s becoming clearer and clearer every day that unity within both parties is being shredded, and Obama may bear the brunt of that.  This is big, boys and girls.

As I said yesterday, Obama has become Jimmy Carter faster than Jimmy Carter became Jimmy Carter.   Picking economic winners and losers and stepping on congress didn’t work for Carter, and it’s not working for Obama. Voters of all stripes are fleeing the smartest president to ever occupy the oval office.
