Prime Minister Ehud Olmert thanked former President George W. Bush and congratulated President Barack Hussein Obama on Tuesday, shortly after Obama's inauguration.
Olmert thanked Bush for the friendship and closeness that prevailed between Israel and the United States during his term of office.
Both countries have shared values and saw eye-to-eye on many issues on the global agenda. The United States, including both parties, has been a true and strong friend of the State of Israel over the years, especially during former President Bush's term of office, the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.
A registered democrat who has no loyalty to a party but to his country. I will criticize both whenever I don't agree. I debate with liberals and conservatives. Voted for Obama, before him Kerry and before him Bush.
Tired of of the partisan crap I just want the country to work.
Overall I lean more to the left, but like I said.....
