Posts Tagged ‘Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’

I watch, listen to, and read a lot of world news.  As far as I can see, there is ONE, ONLY ONE “true statesman” in leadership today.  I hope I am wrong, in that I hope there are others—and especially some in our own USA.  But the only true statesman I see is Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

I just watched Prime Minister Netanyahu as he was interviewed by FOX’s Brit Hume, who tried to play devil’s advocate with the Israeli leader but didn’t get away with it.  Here is one world leader who is refreshingly real, non-political, and right on target.

What would President Obama do if our nation’s cities were bombarded by rockets?  Well, providing the rockets were not actually falling on the White House, Obama would probably not know about the crisis unless he read it in the newspaper.  Then, if he did know, Obama might be shooting pool and enjoying a beer.  If the president got really serious, he would TALK/TALK/TALK/TALK/TALK.

Obama would talk about how since this is the 21st century, rockets simply can’t happen.  (Secretary of State Kerry agrees with that line of “nonsense”—which goes by an infinitely more effective, “earthy” term not suitable for this blog.)

Finally, Barack Obama would lecture us on how we need to (get this!) “NEGOTIATE”—even though it is extremely hard to negotiate with an enemy who plans to decapitate you!

Remember that crazy emperor who fiddled while Rome burned?
