| by Michael Allen

In a video (below), recently released by the National Jewish Democratic Council, singer Barbra Streisand endorsed President Obama and said that GOP challenger Mitt Romney "would take us backwards and is as extreme as it gets."

Streisand said: "President Obama, who has taken our country forward by expanding women’s rights and fighting for social and economic justice. He’s got our economy moving in the right direction.”

“Governor Romney would take us backwards and is as extreme as it gets when it comes to a woman’s right to choose and giving America’s wealthiest even more tax cuts on the backs of the middle class. A Romney administration would deny health insurance to about 45 million people, end Medicare as we know it."

"...Mitt Romney does not share our values. I know Barack Obama does. In this good man, we have a president we can trust, a president whom I trust. For me the choice is clear; I hope it is for you.”
