Waxman Doubles Down

Not content with winning Power Line’s “Quote of the Day” award yesterday, Henry Waxman is quoted today in the press saying that Jewish voters in NY-9 voted Republican because “they want to protect their wealth.”  Looking at Waxman and Obama, don’t we all.  Here’s the complete quote, just to show it doesn’t get any better “in context”:

“But there’s no question the Jewish community is much more bipartisan than it has been in previous years. There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.”

Yeah, we get the picture: Waxman looks at your bank account and thinks, “My precious!”
