|Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu|
There's an old maxim in politics that "if you shoot at the king, you better kill him." That, of course, means that when you aim to take a political foe down [politically], you better be successful or that political foe will be an even greater foe with greater power than he had before you tried to defeat him.
Maybe that should have been in Obama's political primer, Alinsky's "Book of Radicals." Then maybe he wouldn't have tried so hard and so obviously to defeat his political "enemy", Benjamin Netanyuahu of the Likud Party and the Prime Minister of Israel.
The reason Obama looks like he made a huge mistake trying to take down the king [Prime Minister of Israel] Bibi Netanyahu is because the exit polls are in and are almost unanimous in their results that Likud, after being 4-5 seats behind the leftist Zionist Union only days before in every pre-election poll, has pulled even or slightly ahead of the Zionist Union Party and therefore, Benjamin Netanyahu will almost surely be the one able to garner a majority coalition in the Knesset. That means Bibi will retain his Premiership!
Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, what a sweet sound!
This from the Times of Israel: "TV exit polls Tuesday night showed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Likud set to retain the Israeli leadership at the end of a bitter election campaign." "Likud ahead or level with Zionist Union in all 3 exit polls, better placed to build coalition; Netanyahu’s efforts in final days drew him level with Herzog; delight in Likud, dismay in Zionist Union."
And also, this just in. Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of the Likud Party has declared victory. The Drudge Report headlines: "Bibi Stays" with a picture of a dismayed Obama over those headlines.
