Jewish Americans Mull 2012 Obama Re-election Bid

| |

Jewish Americans are looking ahead to the 2012 presidential race, and President Barack Obama’s re-election bid – and they’re beginning to wonder.

Among those reconsidering their support are New York’s former Mayor Ed Koch. “I believed that then-Senator Obama would be as good as John McCain (in the 2008 election) based on his statements at the time, and based on his support of Israel,” Koch told Reuters in an interview following Obama’s Middle East policy speech Thursday. “It turns out I was wrong.”

Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News, warned that Obama has alienated numerous former supporters, who he were “very upset and feel alienated.”
