Next President of the United Fates of America
El Supremo loses another election.
Quote:MSNBC hosts and guests reacted with fury over Benjamin Netanyahu's victory on Tuesday night, describing it as "polarizing," a modern "southern strategy" and an appeal to "racism." Appearing on NewsNation, Wednesday, with Tamron Hall, London Professor Fawaz Gerges decried the Israeli Prime Minister's "use of fear, the use of xenophobia and racism against a significant segment of Israeli citizens, warning Jewish voters that Arabs were flooding the polls."

This prompted no response or push back from Hall.  Speaking of the frosty relationship between the President and Netanyahu, Gerges concluded, "The reality is, the question is what will the Obama administration do? Obama, another point is that Obama has been correct." On Andrea Mitchell Reports, Atlantic contributor Jeffrey Goldberg sneered that the Prime Minister "played the Israeli version of a southern strategy and basically tried to scare his base into coming out and giving their votes to him by saying, essentially 'the Arabs are coming!"

On Tuesday night, it was clear that Netanyahu was on his way to a resounding victory. Despite this, All In anchor Chris Hayes seemed to be in denial. He insisted, "Regardless of the outcome however, there's no question this election...did not go the way he planned." Didn't go "the way he planned?" The result was a resounding victory.

In an opening commentary, Hayes assailed the Israeli politician's U.S.-style "demagoguery":

CHRIS HAYES:  Posting on Facebook about the left-wing conspiracy funding his opposition, vowing at a right-wing rally never to cede control of the occupied territories, and yesterday, finally admitting what many of his critics have long suspected -- if he continues as prime minister, Netanyahu would block the formation of a sovereign Palestinian state.  In what appeared to be a panicked last-ditch ploy to turn out right wing voters today, he took another page in the American playbook, resorting to demagoguery. Netanyahu warned supporters, quote, "Right-rule is in danger. Arab voters are streaming in huge quantities to the polling stations. The left-wing organizations are bringing them in buses."

Offering the ultimate liberal insult, Hayes concluded that Netanyahu "is Israel's George W. Bush."
