Aside from a close personal relationship going back to their army days,I do
not know what Ehud Barak brings to the government.
HE HAS NO POLITICAL PARTY, IS A THORN IN THE BUTT OF THE SETTLERS AND THE R WING PARTIES.his judgement leaves a lot to be desired.
There are plenty of former Generals who would be a terrific replacemnt.The R wing parties in the govt., want to take over responsibility for housing in the settlements-good idea!
Looking at Pres. Obama the last 2-3 days make it appear that we have an angry man striking out irrationally at the Court, the Reps, and Cong Ryan.
His attacks on the Ryan budget are full of cliche's but short on substance and truth.It is always easier to attack a person than debate the issues.
WHERE IS THE OBAMA SENATE BUDGET? IN LIMBO/
