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!

    The Brewish State: Israel Taps Into Growing Craft Beer Bazaar

    JNS.org – It’s widely known that Israel has penetrated the wine market, with some of its sophisticated Israeli blends surpassing historically excellent wines from areas such as the Napa Valley or Bordeaux. But what about beer? For decades, Israel has offered solely the Maccabi and Nesher brands. Not anymore. “There is a huge push of people making beer at home. The country is approaching over 30 craft breweries in the last year or two, making nearly 200 beers,” says Avi Moskowitz, […]

    Natalie Portman Says She Behaved Like ‘Average Everyday Jewish Mother’ on Set of Latest Movie

    The Collected Works of Primo Levi, Edited by Ann Goldstein (REVIEW)

    Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel were the two most immediate and authentic literary voices who gave witness to the Holocaust. Wiesel was an extrovert and a very public figure who wrote initially in French. Levi was a modest retiring chemist who wrote in Italian. Whereas Wiesel was rooted in the Eastern European Jewish Hassidic world, Levi was the product of an assimilated, secular Italian society that saw itself as Italian first and Jewish as an accident of birth. As Levi himself said, “At Auschwitz I […]

    Wine Brings Judea and Samaria to Tel Aviv

    JNS.org – Wine has long been considered a social lubricant, and it’s Nir Lavie’s hope that wine from his Har Bracha Winery in the Samarian hills will serve as a social lubricant between the city-goers of Tel Aviv and the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria, two locales split geographically, and often politically, on the left and right of the country. The new flagship store of Har Bracha has recently popped its corks on 190 Ben Yehuda Street in Tel Aviv, […]

    Tracing Chabad’s History and Success (REVIEW)

    The secret of Chabad’s worldwide success is revealed by veteran Chabad shliach (emissary) Rabbi David Eliezrie in his new book, The Secret of Chabad. The Chabad movement was founded by Rabbi Schnur Zalman of Liadi, Belarus, in 1775. Years later it came to the US with the arrival of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn in 1940, after his escape from Nazi-occupied Warsaw. Upon his arrival in New York, a number of his co-religionists advised him that there was no place for traditional […]
