Experience UnnecessaryObama certainly had less government experience than John McCain. It's no exaggeration to say that Obama was the least qualified person to be elected president than anyone in recent memory, and I've been following American national politics for well over half a century.
public still prefers Donald Trump and Ben Carson over the seasoned politicians and government leaders.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found Trump with 25% support among Republican voters.Leftist Justin Trudeau defeated the pro-Israel Stephen Harper. They had been so proud of being from a country that was led by a man who didn't constantly criticize Israel for doing what any normal country does. Now, Canada will be like all the other countries when it comes to Israel.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was close behind Trump, with 22% support.
Amid a crowded field, US Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Florida) 13% placed a distant third, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-Texas) 9% and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's 8%. (Yahoo)
Avigdor Lieberman leading Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
Midgam conducted a poll of 807 people on Oct 14-15 with a 3.4% margin of error that was broadcast by Channel 2 on Oct 17. From the following figures, who is the most suited to deal with the latest terror wave? 29% Liberman, 17% Netanyahu, 11% Bennett, 9% Ashkenazi, 5% Lapid, 5% HerzogGranted that Lieberman has been around a long time, but his policies have changed radically, most probably to attract media attention. No doubt he will say something that will give him headlines, but he has never actually been in a position of authority and policy making when it comes to defense.
But like pretty much everyone here in Israel, I, too am fed up with Netanyahu's repeatedly failing defense policies. It's like waiting for luggage after a long flight, and the same suitcases are going round and round until it seems like the suitcases are standing still and we're circling them.
We want to destroy and defeat the Arab terrorists, not to just reduce the terror to a "livable" amount. There is no such thing as "lowering" terror. If terror still exists, and the Arab society here still celebrate it publicly, then the government hasn't done its job.
The big problem is that I don't see Avigdor Lieberman as being a better Prime Minister than Bibi. I see Bibi as tying his own hands around his back and not doing what he is capable of doing. He's playing to the wrong audience in trying to placate America and make friends. It can be fatal!!
