You know, it would be prudent to remember that we as Jews live in this country at the will and mercy of non Jews, and that we still have to have respect for the President of the United States, whether we like, or appreciate his attitudes, or morals, or not. Putting this sort of vitrole online for all to see is wrong.November 7, 2012 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #906246
HELLOOOO! anyone home?!? Im interested in hearing what people did after they heard Obama was reelected!November 7, 2012 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #906247farrocksMember
PuhLease: And the Jews in Iran have to respect the President of Iran whether we like him or not. Putting vitrole against him online for all to see is wrong. Same principle applies to him as you applied to Obama.November 8, 2012 12:44 am at 12:44 am #906248OneOfManyParticipant
Protesting against Obama isn’t wrong as much as it is a complete waste of time and energy. Protesting against someone who is actively trying to kill you generally isn’t.November 8, 2012 1:09 am at 1:09 am #906249syeshivaMember
I tore kriya and put on sak vaefer. That was the psak that I got. Why don’t you consult your local orthodox rabbi, because that’s what I did.November 8, 2012 1:45 am at 1:45 am #906250farrocksMember
1) Why is protesting against Obama a complete waste of time? The cumulative protests can effect a change in behavior.
2) How is protesting online against someone who wants to kill you going to help. Online screeds will not change his mind.November 10, 2012 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #906251PuhLeaseParticipant
Not disagreeing. One should have respect for the president of the country in which they live. Their fates are in his/her hands.November 11, 2012 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #906252uneeqParticipant
PuhLease: Sure. If you could go back in time,I’m sure you’ll have the utmost respect for Hitler, Stalin, and all the rest.November 12, 2012 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm #906253Derech HaMelechMember

Guys, how do you get bold and italics? I don’t seem to be able.November 12, 2012 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #906255akupermaParticipant
Obama may be annoying from a lot of perspectives, but we’ve seen a lot worse. Indeed, most Jews voted for him, and his party (the party of Greenfield, Hikind, etc.) is still the dominant party in the frum community. His economic policies are very good for large families and persons with limited incomes (such as kollel families). His impact on Eretz Yisrael is probably minimal (Ha-Shem and the Jews living there will decide their destiny – not the Americans). His views on moral issues are reflective of those of the non-frum Jews and of most New Yorkers (and note that most frum Jews choose to live in New York in spite of it being the leading city when it comes to immorality).
Obama’s win may be bad, but it is hardly the end of the world.November 12, 2012 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #906256interjectionParticipant

Actually Romney was worse. That’s why all he did was run negative ads about Obama, because he himself had nothing to offer.November 13, 2012 2:30 am at 2:30 am #906258Song of BlessingParticipant
