‘Obama…Oy Vey!!’ Billboards Target Jewish Voters in Swing State of Florida

The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has put up a series of billboard advertisements reading “Obama…Oy Vey!!” in South Florida Jewish communities in an effort to sway voters in that critical swing state.

Placed in Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach counties, the billboards also ask “Had enough?” and feature the RJC’s MyBuyersRemorse.com website, which includes videos of Jewish voters who chose Barack Obama in 2008 and talk about how they regret their decision.

“There is a strong sense of buyer’s remorse among Jewish voters, who are disappointed and disillusioned with President Obama and the job he has done in the last 3 ½ years,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a statement Tuesday. “We’re helping those people give voice to their feelings.”

A new Investors Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP poll shows Obama’s Jewish support at 59 percent, compared with 35 percent for Republican candidate Mitt Romney. By comparison, Gallup polls in June and July had 68 percent of Jewish voters choosing Obama.

  • This country has never been so divided thanks to the HATE you and Obama are spreading. You are confused. Romney has given away millions to those in need, much more than your lefties have. So what does that tell you about character. Your guy lies so much and is so corrupt, you go talk to the parents who lost their sons in Bengazi since Obama will not be honest about it. You have been easily misled by a man who does not know how to be transparent and is a proven FAILED LEADER,

  • Stop trying to spread hate, seniors would be DEAD if Romney gets elected. He cares NOTHING about anyone but RICH WHITE PEOPLE. This is a disgrace, and REPUBES should be ashamed of themselves posting this stereotypical sign. It’s racist too. WAKE UP!!!

  • Oy vey….shut up! Obama to be reelected!

    • Jackson Franco

      Cesar, you are clearly anti-Semitic. YOU shut up!

      • So seniors would be better off with Romney? R u seriously trying to convince us that lie?

        • That’s productive!

        • Yes, seniors (I am one) and EVERYONE else will be better of with Romney as president. Obama is a Failed Leader with no love for this country and since you cannot see that with the trail of devastation he has left over the last 3 years, there is nothing more to say to you, except, golf anyone?

  • Frank,

    If Obama is a muslim, he’s a terrible one:

    The Dow Jones just hit a 4-year high, which also makes him a terrible socialist.

  • telling isreal to go back to the lines of the 1960s .is no diffrent then telling rosa parks to sit at the back of the bus . its a slap in the face of jewish voters ,yes you can win a election on hope and change ,but you wont win a relection .

    • GOT IT , WHEN THE DJ GOES DOWN IT’S THE PRESIDENT’S FAULT WHEN IT GOES UP HE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. SAME LOGIC YOU USE ON UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURES

  • The Jewish people in America need to wake up. Obama is an extreme leftist and possibly a socialist. He has insulted Nethanyahu and is pushing his Muslim agenda.

    We love middle of teh road Democrats and Republicans, but Obama is trying the change the foundation that America was built on. We need to vote him out in November and we need the Jewish vote to make that happen.

    • I am a jew and live in a prominently jewish area. This billboard is just misleading and low class. The recovery wheels are in motion we simply need to unite as Americans and support our president. (Not to mention me and all my Jewish friends are embarrassed of that billboard) way to go

      • So, how do you think Netinyahoo (sp) feels about the way Obama has treated him and Israel? He is a muslim with no love for you or Israel. He has stated he will side with his muslim brothers should it come down to it. He vacations on Ramadan, wake up!

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever.

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
