Then Bibi finally arrived. He was welcomed like a conquering hero and began to speak. He soon was getting standing ovation after standing ovation for his impassioned and perfectly executed delivery, his love of Israel and America. He was a master, of the AIPAC audience at least, and probably many others. Something was becoming abundantly clear.
If only… if only… Bibi would run for president as a Republican, all the Jews would join that party and vote for him. (Or most of them anyway.) That would settle that question, at least for now. And it would be great for the USA too. It would solve the Republicans’ problem of mediocre candidates.
Forget Romney, Santorum, and Newt. Goodbye pining for Mitch Daniels, Sarah Palin, or Chris Christie. Bibi’s a better speaker than any of them by a lot — and vastly more experienced. Remember his talk in front of Congress last May? They were ready to elect him president right there. On top of that his father’s a famous historian and his brother was a military hero. He is the one to beat Obama. Head-to-head against the president he’d probably clean his clock — and the two guys evidently hate each other already. So why not?
And big deal that Obama went to Harvard. Bibi went to MIT. We all know that’s harder.
