JTA: Republican Jews Launch Negative Campaign

I must "express serious misgivings" about this ad campaign. It reminds me that only the republicans could come up with the phrase, "nattering nabobs of negativism" (Spiro Agnew).

This is the year of the Obama-cans, the Republicans who support Barack Obama. The traffic is going the other way.

Why? Because they have had enough with the negativism of the Republicans and the right.
GOP Jews launch ads on ex-Dems

The Republican Jewish Coalition has launched an ad campaign titled "I Used to be a Democrat."

The series of ads depicts the political journeys of Jewish Democrats who are now Republicans.

I know both of the Jewish republicans (again and again). There is no line around the block following them, I assure you.

"The ads reflect the movement we've witnessed for years: More and more American Jews express serious misgivings with the direction of the Democratic Party," said RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks. "Again and again they are finding that the Republican Party better represents their concerns, ranging from national security to the well-being of the State of Israel."

The ads will run in major Jewish newspapers across the country through late spring or early summer.
