Recriminations and wound-licking reported from Romney HQ. His dissing of 47% of the electorate was almost suicidal, says NBC, quoting folks there. That, and Hurricane Sandy.

Aaron Keyak, Democratic operative working on outreach to Jewish community: “Despite unprecedented Republican efforts and millions of dollars spent to win over the Jewish vote, Republicans performed within the margin of error of their 2008 performance when Obama got 74%. That’s not even to mention that their wasted money targeting Jewish voters helped usher in the second term for President Obama by having taken away much needed resources from other persuadable voters and swing states.”

NJDC Chair Marc R. Stanley and NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s reelection: “On behalf of the National Jewish Democratic Council’s leadership and staff, we are thrilled that President Barack Obama has won reelection and will serve as President of the United States for four more years. In his first term, President Obama signed historic legislation into law, appointed outstanding Supreme Court justices and reflected Jewish values at every turn – all while being Israel’s most important friend and most persistent advocate in the world. We know that he will continue to build on his outstanding foreign and domestic record in his second term, and that he will continue moving our country forward.”
