Obama is upset by the comments George W. made to the Israeli Knesset (Israel's Parliament) yesterday. Bush was there to commemmorate the establishment of Israel 60 years ago. Please recall that Harry Truman and the United States were the first to recognize Israel as a nation. We have historic ties with them. They are an ally. Bush said: "Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. "We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history." Funny thing. Bush was referring to the problems Israels is having with Hamas, Hizbollah and Fatah in the territories Israel turned over to the Palestinians. But the Obfuscator seems to think Bush is talking about him! Obama said to the American press, "It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 60th anniversary of Israel's independence to launch a false political attack. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the president's extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel." Hey, Obama, Bush wasn't talking about you. He was making the point that appeasement and paying danegeld never work. He wasn't talking about you. But if you want to claim that he was, that's okay with me. You are already on record as saying you'll treat with rogue nations and terrorists, and will pull out of Iraq without regard for the consequences. If the shoe fits, Obama, go ahead and wear it. It's just one more reason for thinking people NOT to vote for you.
