The rhetoric this man spewed out with the goals of the war, and then the subsequent bungling of its engagement that brought defeat and none of his goals...and then still claim victory. As if the Israeli public are stupid and have that short of a memory is absurd. He is arrogant in his unwillingness to come realize his mistakes and appoint a states inquiry. But that's not the worst part, the worst is his ideological emptiness, and his transparent attempts at consolidating power at the expense of the state. Political expediency is what olmert is all about and everything else falls by the wayside. He is no leader, but just a man that was sharon's crony and was there at the right time at the right place... He is bad for Israel & that's why everyone is calling for his head!
