Some say that Netanyahu might still lose if he makes a few big mistakes. That is false as he regularly makes big mistakes and no one gives a hoot.
I even suspect him of blundering on purpose like bosses in large cooperations do. They do things that are really bad or stupid or immoral (or better, have a sub-boss working under them who does that for them). The people who object are then fired (very handy when the trouble-makers rush forward to identify themselves) after which the problem is quickly resolved.
But whatever the case, there are rules how sitting government leaders win elections. Rule number one: you don’t need to do anything. Be the best leader you can be, appear on TV often and you get reelected.
The biggest problem is when you initiate anything. People may not like it. So don’t come with big ideas or statements. Do your job, smile to the camera and your victory is certain.
Your voters also don’t care when you get slandered, maligned, accused, indicted or even convicted. So stop attacking the police and the media.
Let all the others scream scandal, insult others and lie. But why you too?
Besides, saying that you won’t quit when indicted, enlarges the chance that you actually will get charged. But if you’d say, I just might quit when prosecuted, the AG may decide that indictment is too big a punishment in light of the uncertainties of an eventual conviction.
If you’re tired of the job, quit. But if you want to continue, please control your tongue and stop obstructing your success. This is an easy win, remember?
The Rabbis teach famously (in four terse words), If you try to grab much, you might end up holding nothing. Shut up and sail towards victory.
