If anyone needs more proof that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is a few French Fries short of a happy meal, his comments last night should do it.
When we last visited Mr. Comb-over he was busily blaming HIS failure in managing last summers war in Lebanon on everyone except well– Olmert. “it was Livni’s fault, no it was the Generals fault, no it was the Knesset’s fault” and my all time favorite…”the war was run perfectly the press just reported it in a biased way”
Last night the feeble-minded prime minister,whose only successful endeavor since he took office has been to make one-sided concessions to the Palestinians, predicted that his party will retain power after the next elections and he will remain the Prime Minister. Last time I looked the guys approval rating was in single digits and in recent straw polls he finished 4th behind Likud, Labor and none of the above. This guy is delusional and should be put in one of those nice raincoats with the extra long sleves that tie around his back. Sometimes I think the only thing preventing Hezbollah and Hamas from attacking is that they are too busy laughing at Olmert.
Olmert: Kadima and I will stay in power
JPost.com Staff, THE JERUSALEM POST Jul. 23, 2007Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared Sunday evening that his Kadima party would continue to lead Israel for the next few years, and that he would remain prime minister. Olmert spoke during a meeting with Kadima leaders at his Jerusalem home, Israel Radio reported. “[Defense Minister Ehud] Barak says he’ll run against [Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu ], and Bibi says he’ll run against Barak, but I say to both of them – I’m going to be prime minister,” Olmert declared. The prime minister also stated that Israel must be governed with an appropriate combination of security concern, human compassion, and economic and social responsibility. Ever since taking over as Labor chairman, Barak has been vociferous about his intent to topple Olmert and force an early general election.
Meanwhile, Netanyahu has adopted a strategy of attacking Barak, blaming the Second Lebanon War on Barak’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000. Netanyahu turned his attention to Barak after disposing of his main competition in the Likud, MK Silvan Shalom, when Shalom announced two weeks ago that he would not seek the Likud leadership. Olmert also told Kadima supporters that Haim Ramon and Ronnie Bar-On had been appointed to ministerial posts because they were the “most qualified” candidates to hold them. However, he said, both Ramon and Bar-On were friends of his, and he placed the “highest value” on friendship.
