There is very little honest debate of political issues anymore in the Orthodox Jewish world. The mindset of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, et al & etc ,, dominates most all "frum" newspapers, websites and blogs. Opposing views rarely get aired or examined.
Birther-ism and the view that 'Obama is some Muslim socialist' is shamefully the prevalent view in Orthodox Brooklyn. It is not at all uncommon to hear the N-word in reference to Obama among the shmoozers in shul & at Shobbos tables , with few ever protesting.

The "yeshiva world" is a most bizarre and contradictory "body politic" for sure.
