Sara Netanyahu once said during a family gathering that if her husband had run for president of the United States, he would easily be elected (assuming, of course, that he were legally allowed to run ). Indeed, in Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s address before both houses of Congress Tuesday, he made impressive use of all the tools of an experienced and sharp-tongued American politician. The extent of the applause he received throughout his speech shows that the many years he spent in the United States as a high school, college and graduate student, as a deputy chief of mission at the Israeli Embassy in Washington and as an ambassador to the United Nations were not wasted time.
Netanyahu proved that he has no Israeli equal when it comes to plucking the strings of American patriotism and of the wish of Congress members to preserve their close ties with the large Jewish organizations.
Netanyahu has shown that he is far superior to the the inept politicians being put up by the GOP.
I say: Netanyahu for president, as a Republican.
Would you vote for him?
I sure would.
