Blow against O in Weiner race – Mayor Koch: Vote for GOPer a vote for Israel


Democrat urges voters to choose the Republican candidate to replace ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner
Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch opposes Obama’s policy on Israel

In “a shot across President Obama’s bow,” Democratic former Mayor Ed Koch yesterday urged voters in Queens and Brooklyn to make “history” by voting for the Republican candidate to replace randy ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner in the Sept. 13 special election — as a protest against the White House’s policy on Israel.

Koch — a staunch ally of Israel — said he would “vote for Bob Turner” if the Republican-Conservative candidate backs Israel and opposes cutbacks to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

“If Jewish New Yorkers and others who support Israel were to turn away from the Democratic Party in that congressional election and elect the Republican candidate to Congress in 2011, it might very well cause President Obama to change his hostile position on the state of Israel and to re-establish the special relationship presidents before him had supported,” Koch said in his weekly commentary.

    I really hope that Turner doesn’t take Koch’s advice on entitlement programs. We can’t deal with our long term spending problems without dealing with them. http://bit.ly/oodluK
