His little speech was about firstly getting Congress on Israel's side in general because alot of those Congressmen will still be here many years long after Obmam or even Bibi himself have existed the political stage. Its about getting general support make it easier toask for favors the Democrat controlled Congress in Obama's first couple of years were no more pro Israel than Obama himself so this was about taking advanatage of the moment getting Congress on his side in general and with the so called peace process. So far Obama had been giving his unconditional support for the palestinians and Bibi wants Congress to pressure him to change that policy. Bibi wants to make sure Obama honors the letter Bush gave Sharon that the settlement blocks are staying, Bibi wants to keep a military presence in the Jordan Valley etc. The bulk of what he said in that little speech were just empty words he had other motives. As for why Bibi entered politcs well considering twice the public chose to elect him then somebody must think he is doing something right even if you Gideon do not. Also the latest polls show that if an election were held today Likud headed by Bibi would pick up seats from both Labor and Kadmima so Likud would be expected to increase its lead under Bibi if an election was held today so he must be doing something right.
