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!

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    JNS.org – On Friday, April 22, 196 nations across the world mark Earth Day, the annual day dedicated to environmental protection that was enacted in 1970. Not to be forgotten on this day is Israel, which is known as the “start-up nation” for its disproportionate amount of technological innovation, including in the area of protecting the environment. For Earth Day 2016, JNS.org presents a sampling of the Jewish state’s internal achievements and global contributions in the environmental realm. Water conservation Israeli […]

    New Documentary Explores Holocaust Humor, Role That Laughter Played in Death Camps

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    Tragedy Culminates in ‘Celebration,’ Says Israeli Author Who Lost Son to Terror

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]

    For Alan Gross, Cuban Prison Didn’t Harden His Heart or Weaken His Ambition

    JNS.org – Alan Gross used to be nothing more to me than a tragic headline. When I started my position at this news service in July 2011, Gross had been imprisoned in Cuba since December 2009 for what that country called “crimes against the state.” Gross, a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development, went to Cuba to help the Jewish community there access the Internet. After his arrest, he received a trial he describes as a “B movie,” […]

    New Movie Shows How Global Economic Instability Grew From Very Local Greed

    JNS.org – When I saw the recent Academy Award-winning film “The Big Short,” I was struck by the sheer genius of the financiers who devised the schemes and packaged the loans for resale, but it left me with unanswered questions about how the properties these loans represented were moved. “The Big Short” was largely about paper transactions, big money, and wealthy investors, and it mildly touched on the way the actual end-users — the home buyers and brokers — played into this […]

    Psychiatry and the Spirit

    Why do we think so negatively about psychiatrists that we still insult them by calling them shrinks? Some medics might be quacks, but we don’t generally refer to them as witches! Shrinks; The Untold Story of Psychiatry, by Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, is a sobering account of how psychiatry has swung from a marginal, unscientific mixture of weird theories into one of the most common and pervasive forms of treatment of what are commonly called “disorders of the mind.” Is it […]

    At Forbes Summit in Israel, Entrepreneurship Is a ‘Common Language’

    JNS.org – Nine months ago, Seth Cohen, director of network initiatives for the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, and Randall Lane, editor of Forbes Magazine, were schmoozing about the “vibrancy of Tel Aviv and soul of Jerusalem,” as Lane put it. They dreamed about how they could bring young and innovative millennials to the so-called “start-up nation.” From April 3-7, Forbes turned that dream into a reality. Israel played host to the first-ever Forbes Under 30 EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) […]
