“What does change is Israel’s position vis-a-vis Iran. The wall-to-wall coalition demonstrates Israel’s political readiness to attack, if necessary. (Its military readiness is not in doubt.) Those counseling Israeli submission, resignation or just endless patience can no longer dismiss Israel’s tough stance as the work of irredeemable right-wingers. Not with a government now representing 78 percent of the country. Netanyahu forfeited September elections that would have given him four more years in power. He chose instead to form a national coalition that guarantees 18 months of stability — 18 months during which, if the world does not act (whether by diplomacy or otherwise) to stop Iran, Israel will. And it will not be the work of one man, one party or one ideological faction. As in 1967, it will be the work of a nation.”
— Charles Krauthammer, May 10, 2012 (

One man of action. Another man of words. One man acting to preserve, protect and defend the State of Israel. Another man pledged to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. National leadership in action. National leadership in theory.

The leader of a nation. A part-time community organizer, full-time campaign fundraiser, and anytime amateur golfer.

Any questions?
