Yet another 5 reasons to hate Rush

The fat one:
If you have often wondered --just in a legitimately curious political sense -- if you have asked yourself why so many Jewish people vote liberal when it seems when so much of what liberals do would be anthema to Jewish people particularly abortion [...] you know something folks, there are a lot of people [who] when you say banker [these] people think Jewish; people who have prejudice; people who have [mumble mumble mumble] a little prejudice about them. To some people, "banker" is code word for Jewish; and guess who Obama is assaulting? He's assaulting bankers. He's assaulting money people. And a lot of those people on Wall Street are Jewish. So I wonder if there's -- if there's starting to be some buyer's remorse there?
Some obvious objections:

(1) In reality it makes no sense at all for Orthodox Jews to side with the Christian right on abortion. According to law and tradition some abortions are perfectly ok, so why would we want the government to outlaw all of them? In fact, why would we want the government involved at all? Let Jewish women decide for themselves, in consultation with whomever they wish to consult, when its ok per Jewish law and tradition to have an abortion. I trust them to make the right decision with no help at all from the US Congress.

(2) As for non-Orthodox Jews, well, Rush is an idiot: Non Orthodox Jews, for the most part, are liberal on abortion.

(3)In fact, when it comes to Jews, Rush seems awfully confused. Two seconds after denouncing people who accept the Jews are all about money stereotype as having "a little prejudice about them" he makes use of it himself.

(4) How can Wall Street bankers (Jews or not) have "buyers remorse" when Wall Street bankers for the most part opposed Obama's candidacy and voted against him?

(5) Though Obama may attack bankers he also saved their hides with massive bailouts. Many of those banks that were near dead at the end of the Bush presidency, are back on their feet and rolling in money. If I was, god forbid, a Wall Street banker I'd have some gratitude for him, I bet.
