  •  Politico explains what Ryan means:Jews, Blacks (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    If President Barack Obama wins, he will be the popular choice of Hispanics, African-Americans, single women and highly educated urban whites. That’s what the polling has consistently shown in the final days of the campaign. It looks more likely than not that he will lose independents, and it’s possible he will get a lower percentage of white voters than George W. Bush got of Hispanic voters in 2000.

    A broad mandate this is not.

    As a final irony, the syntax of " a something this is not" reveals the influence on English of Yiddish (a guess), in which case the language spoken of some of the ancestors of those highly educated whites, who voted in great number for Obama.

    Lying means Jews and Blacks. Politico meant Jews and minorities. and unmarried women.

    "Are you bluish? You don't look bluish," attributed to poet Roger Joseph McGough, for the Beatles' Yellow Submarine (1968).
