Smart move: Bibi calls for early elections
The elections for the 19th Knesset are to be held early in 2013, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Tuesday. He argues for a shorter election season. He’s smart. The sooner the elections are held, the better…especially for the Likud, his party. Right now, support for the Likud and Bibi is very strong and they would pick up more seats than they have today. Likud will be getting my vote –back in 2005, I was debating between Labour and Meretz and the idea of supporting the Likud was inconceivable. Now, the opposite is true. Bibi has stepped up to the plate and proved to be our strongest leader than we’ve had in more than a decade and much stronger than he was the first time around back in the ’90s.
