Dear Jaladhi: I do understand this white guilt thing. Many of us were impressed with Obama, but they didn't look at his background or actual experience. Alot of people wanted to prove they weren't racist and vote for a black man, give him a chance, so to speak, and try to improve race relations with whites and blacks., not sure if this is what the Jewish people had in mind, but I know it is the case with white Christians and Catholics. I have never been racist and believe everyone deserves equal rights, and a chance to become all that they can be through education, and service to their country. I have investigated the President's history, and past ties to many undesireables, and knew his back ground, thats why I didn't vote for him, but being black had nothing to do with my decision. Pretty poor decision, I agree to elect someone who is dangerous to your survival.

I am glad more people are asking Why did the Jewish people vote for Obama. This whole situation does not help the Israeli people.

Regards, Anne
