Two Messages by Two Candidates to the Jewish People

Both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama recorded a message to the Jewish people. I find the differences to be interesting.

Here is Arutz 7’s article on Romney’s message, including the transcript of his video speech. Romney’s Rosh HaShanah Message Focuses on Faith

This is Arutz 7’s article on Obama’s message, including the transcript of his video speech. Obama: Let’s Renew the Bond With Israel

Obviously, both messages are carefully written and are aimed at winning over the Jewish people. But that is natural. So, putting that aside, I notice differences between the two. The heart of each message is different and the delivery is different.

I have tried to view these messages as if I did not know of either man, but that is a definite challenge. And, in fact, may not be wise. After all, what I know of each man has a lot to do with how much I believe in the sincerity of the speaker. To me, one comes across as being more sincere than the other. One seems to be speaking from the heart, looking right through the camera, eye to eye. The other seems to be reading a script and he rarely looks at the camera, let alone through it.
