Netanyahu tells it like it is

This is Bibi Netanyahu explaining to the Likud last week how the politicians brought all Israel's problems upon it.

Why, oh why isn't Bibi PM?

He could wipe the floor up with Olmerde.

Am I mistaken or did Bibi acquire an American accent with his Hebrew?

NY Nana,

Because he refused to run against Sharon for party chairman after he lost to Barak in 1999, and then he declined the party's offer to have an exception made from the requirement that you be an MK to run for Prime Minister under the old direct election law so Sharon was the Likud candidate against Barak in 2001 rather than Bibi.


A very slight one and I think he has always had it. He did grow up mostly in the US.

I always liked Bibi, and I felt bad when the right turned on him. I don't know if any pol could have stood up to Clinton's pressures.
In the end Clinton sent over Carville and Greenberg to insure his puppet Baraks victory.

I think the right regrets turning on Bibi. Not because of Bibi but because it brought us Barak.

I may still vote for Feiglin in the Likud primary (as I have said on the blog). But if I do, it will be to remind Bibi that the right has expectations from him. I can't myself voting for anyone else for Prime Minister. Except that unfortunately, we can only vote for parties again these days....

What in Bibi's record suggests that he would now resist foreign pressures effectively?

I'm not sure that anything does. But there's nothing in Barak's, Livni's or Olmert's records to suggest that they will even try to resist.
