ABC News' Teddy Davis Reports: Florida Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings pointed to Sarah Palin on Wednesday to rally Jews to Obama.

"If Sarah Palin isnít enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention," said Hastings. "Anybody toting guns and stripping moose donít care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through."

Hastings, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, made his comments in Washington, D.C., while participating in a panel discussion sponsored by the National Jewish Democratic Council.

Asked what the congressman meant, Hastings spokesman David Goldenberg told ABC News that he was trying to argue that Palin is an "extremely conservative woman who is out of touch with mainstream America."

After saying that Palin "don't care too much" about Jews and blacks, Hastings argued that African Americans and Jews should come together behind Obama because there are many issues on which they agree.

"Just like Jews, blacks care about affordable health care, energy independence, and the separation of church and state," said Hastings. "And just like blacks, Jews care about equal pay for equal work, investment in alternative energy, and a woman's right to choose."

Asked about the Hastings criticism, Palin spokeswoman Maria Comella said, "Weíre taking a pass."

Alcee's a corrupt douchebag. If his constituents ever held him accountable for the shit he pulled he'd be hocking used cars and cleaning shit off of windshields. Unless Alcee's offering his opinion on how to not get away with corruption as a sitting federal judge his insights are useless.

Alcee's positon: Hunters are racist anti-semites.

Wow Alcee. Just f'n wow.

As far as his statements it was bad politics. It was meant to play on the backwoods bias and it didn't work. I don't think it is racial bias. It is Backwoods bias and additionally painting Palin as Backwoods. It doesn't work. Even for Retired Jews.

The one constant that keeps appearing in this forum is right here. Not to pick on the great nutless one cause BOT's are all doing it.

Obama has spent many years and millions promoting the end of civilian ownership of firearms. He is also for AA. These are facts no matter how much you try to make fun of them.

There is no basis or facts behind anything being promoted here. Very inaccurate comparisons.

These are facts no matter how much you try to make fun of them.The fact that you equate "reasonable gun control" with "take away all of our guns" and affirmative action with "retribution on the white race" pretty much says it all.

When on the board of the Joyce Foundation for 8 years they spent millions trying to eliminate all civilian ownership of firearms. FACT

His voting record:

Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing. (Jan 2008)
2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month. (Oct 2007)
Concealed carry OK for retired police officers. (Aug 2007)
Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities. (Jul 2007)
Keep guns out of inner cities--but also problem of morality. (Oct 2006)
Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban. (Oct 2004)
Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions. (Jul 1998)
Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)

He is also for a 500% increase in taxation on firearms and ammunition. He is a HUGE anti-gun guy. by far the most anti-gun guy in the history of our country running for the POTUS. FACT

AA is legalized racism, period. When performance takes a back seat to a racially based reward system there is just no other way to put it. Who will be the biggest vicitm in this, whites. FACT

You have nothing to stand on here. Comparing that this jew/black thing is just your own fallacy. You are full of those though so don't let me stop you.

If failpass meant that they were silent because they don't vote, I don't know why he'd be talking about those people rising up. The 'Irrelevant Majority' would probably be more accurate in that case.

Point being that he spent much of his life trying to eliminate all firearm posession by civilians. No matter what he is saying now that's what he is and he will not be behind the 2nd amendment as POTUS.

To be fair I think the same holds true for McCain. He has always been a big government guy and to pretend to now be a small government guy now is as ridiculous as Obama now claiming to be behind the 2nd amendment.
