In my opinion, Bibi Netanyahu would be the PERFECT choice for the Israeli PM position. It's about time they get a real man back in office. They need tough, determined leadership right now and he fits the bill perfectly.
If he gets back in as PM, I'll look forward to the wailing and gnashing of teeth from his detractors.
Kadima Decides: Eight More Weeks and Olmert Is Out of Office
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) The Kadima party council, after 12 days, gathered a majority of 91 to vote to amend the party's by-laws and set leadership primaries in September. The decision gives Prime Minister Ehud Olmert eight more weeks to lead the government before being replaced unless he decides to take on his challengers.
His popularity is waning, and the ongoing criminal investigation against him has made it increasingly unlikely that he will put his hat back in the ring and risk losing.
The primaries will be held after the second week of September, with a run-off, if necessary. Ministers Tzipi Livni, Shaul Mofaz, Avi Dichter and Moshe Sheetrit have announced they will seek the leadership. Foreign Minister Livni is narrowly leading Transportation Minister Mofaz in the polls.
She and Public Security Minister Dichter have been the major movers in trying to gather a majority of council members to approve new party elections. The Foreign Minister and the Prime Minister have had an increasingly cold relationship, and he has made it clear that he does not want her to take over the party.
Channel Two television reported Monday night that he viciously attacked her verbally in a private conversation, calling her a liar for her testimony before the Winograd Committee that investigated the government's handling of the Second Lebanon War.
He reportedly said, "She cannot make decisions." One of her aides responded to the report by saying, "So he said it. So what?"
Funny how no one is worried about how an attack on Iran could affect the outcome of the election in Israel.
Netanyahu WANTS the status quo to continue. It's too bad Sharon isn't around anymore.
Two more months of bungling for this spaghetti-spined idiot....
