    Why would a Jew vote for Obama?

    Same reason my (Jewish) BIL drove a VW: He liked it.

    Many American jews are traditionally very liberal (not GT jews... ;)).

    Probably the same reasons many Americans drive Japanese cars, or Native Americans drive American made trucks.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Why would conservatives drive American cars or trucks?

    Made by UAW workers and a portion of their union dues goes straight to the Democratic Party every year.

    Sit there in your Chevy truck and sneer at my Tundra all you want but you are indirectly funding the DNC with your apple pie Chevy! LOL

    Yeah, better for all that money to go out of the country completely.

    Because German autoworkers are not Nazis? Generally speaking...

    It doesn't go completely out of the country. That money goes to pay the workers and staff responsible for running the company and building the vehicles.
    Why pay more for a subpar product?

    Why would any normal American drive a Mitsubishi? They manufactured the plane that tried to kill your father (or grandfather, as the case may be).

    But, I have to admit Jews driving a Mercedes, a BMW, or a Volkswagen is a little creepy to me.

    I think what he is getting at, and what there really is no decent comparision for, is why would person of the Jewish faith willingly support companies like Mercedes, BMW, Krupps, etc, when those companies profitted directly from Jewish slave labor which was provided to them by the German government during the war; the Jewish workers were worked until they died, and were replaced; they quite literally would drop while on the assembly lines, and if they were not dead then they were dragged outside and shot; the next day, another Jewish prisoner, starved, sick, beaten, seperated form their families and treated worse than cattle, would be put in that place, only to suffer the same fate when they could no longer stand. Those companies survied the war intact and benefitted from reconstruction after the war;

    I think it's a valid question, since there is so much there; what happened was not warfare as in the Japan comparison that was made, but rather systematic genocide that was aided and abeetted by these firms, whose motive was profit.

    They truly gained from the extermination of the Jews during the war, and the profits they reaped were indeed blood money.

    Many persons of Japanese descent drive GM cars, too, and GM made US fighters in WWII. But bygones are bygones.

    If the US big 3 would dump the UAW....then I will maybe consider buying their junk again. But until then...hell yeah....I'll send my money to the Japanese or Swedes. Their cars also hold up better.

    Why pay more for crap AND fund the labor union and the UAW?

    Toyotas are built HERE by Americans that do not belong to the UAW.

    I concur. Why would a Jew vote for Socialists? Why would a Jew support stricter gun control? Doesn't make sense, logically.

    Remember this one thing and it will answer your question.

    If Israel were to be attacked tomorrow...his advisors have openly admitted Obama would support Israel with equipment and intelligence. Why?

    Not to save American lives, get us access to oil, for the good of humanity, or thinking of the children.

    Its because he can't afford to lose the Jewish vote.

    Actually a good chunk of it goes to the folks who work in the Toyota factory on the south side of San Antonio.
