In its most recent installment of “My Buyers Remorse”, a series of individuals explaining why they won’t be voting for President Obama in November following their support for him in 2008, a New York based attorney named Brad cites the president’s decision not to visit Israel while in office and a lack of economic growth as his reasons for deciding not to vote for Obama this year.

“The corporate departments, the transaction departments of every major lawfirm in this city are on fumes right now, there’s no business,” he said in the RJC ad.  “Companies are not expanding.”

While never explicitly stating that he is voting for Mitt Romney instead of President Obama, Brad says he takes issue with the president choosing to visit other countries “around” Israel, but not Israel itself, while in office.

“I find it unbelieveable that President Obama, who alledges that he is a very strong friend of Israel, has never stepped foot in that country since he’s been president.  He’s been to many countries around it, more than once, but never set foot in Israel.  That’s a problem for me.”
