Experience Unnecessary to Lead a Country

There was one big thing that Barack Hussein Obama proved when first elected President of the United States:
Experience Unnecessary
Obama 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.

And the latest Americans polls are showing that the 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.
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)
My Canadian friends are shocked and upset that 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.

And in Israel, the recent Midgam poll shows the untested 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% Herzog
Granted 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!!

If one is looking for a conservative these days, one is going to be disappointed.

Every one seems to want to pander to the mythical center.

That works out real well!

And in Israel, managing the conflict, really an Arab pogrom against the Jews isn't good enough.

Sadly, the last intelligent man in Israel was Rav Meir Kahane and he was right.

The Arabs are the enemy but Israel cares more about world opinion to actually to do something to yank the festering wound they represent to the country.

Europeans don't want Arabs. Why should Israel's Jews put up with them?

Depressing isn't it? Kahane had many faults as leader best as ideologue.

God has identified His choice already, publically witnessed by rabbis of every normative sect, here in Israel. Its up to the people. God waits, wake up already!

Batya Medad said...

Not at all. The true LIVING MESSIAH is still hidden. Anyone dead is not the true one.

Shiloh said...

OMG, grow up Batya, what do you think I am talking about, in our day!!! History is behind us to learn from and not repeat. The Rambam writes, he will be revealed (happened feb 4, 2002, publically witnessed by rabbi's), concealed and revealed again. If they are aware of it, why are they NOT telling you all.
