The Orthodox Union made a big mistake in honoring Ehud Olmert. While Olmert is the Prime Minister of Israel, it's the wrong place and time for the OU to honor him.
Olmert's currently under investigation for all sorts of criminal charges, the war this past summer was lost, Sederot is under constant attack, the Gush Katif expellees still have NO real solutions for housing or jobs, and don't forget Olmert’s infamous directive for police brutality against teenagers at Amona!
What did the OU gain by honoring the man?
It’s obvious what they lost.
They lost the support of the belief based public.
They lost the support of their advertisers.
They lost the enrollment of many Orthodox congregations.
They lost the consumer base that used to trust their Kashrut, who now openly boycott all products with an OU.
Way to go OU!
