----------------
Lieberman's backers attribute the shift to opposition to the Iraq war. Jewish opposition to the war has always outpaced general opposition.

"I find the behavior of a large segment of the Jewish community to be reprehensible and outrageous," said John Droney, a former chairman of the state party who is advising Lieberman to run as an independent. "When he's in trouble like this, they all ought to rally to him. It's too bad that you have to listen to an Irish-American to realize that you've got to support your own home cooking."

Lamont, a cable TV millionaire, has closed the gap significantly by battering Lieberman on his support for the war and his friendliness to President Bush.

(snip)

But an internal Democratic poll of Connecticut Jews sees Lamont leading by 50 percent to 41 percent, JTA has learned. The sample was small, but the results were a dramatic departure from the 90-plus approval rating Lieberman scored among Jews after Al Gore named him as his running mate in 2000.
----------------

this was the same guy who called Lamont supporters "terrorists", backed and encouraged Lieberman's independent run.

And he was once a CT dem party chair! WTF?

1. At the very least, this guy is a shmuck.
His statement is reprehensible and outrageous. Lieberman needs to repudiate it.

2. All Jews must vote for the Jewish candidate?
Even if they are against what he stands for? Ludicrous.

7. That's GOP rightwing talk, like saying all Christians must vote for Bush
and this tells you how far off the Democratic mainstream are Holy Joe and his fanatical supporters.
