Methinks Obama doth protest too much.

President Bush speaks in Israel about the folly of appeasement. He doesn’t name any names. He could be talking about Jimmy Carter, Cindy Sheehan, the White Flag Democrat leaders in the House and Senate, or hell, his own State Department:

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” Bush said at Israel’s 60th anniversary celebration in Jerusalem.

“We have heard this foolish delusion before,” Bush said in remarks to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. “As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of 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.”

So, who’s first out of the gate to whine about what they see as a “false political attack?”

The Barack Obama camp.

Obama, sweetie, if the shoe fits


Bob Owens (heh, right back at ya!): “Perhaps we’d all find Barack’s stance against meeting with terrorists a lot more sincere if he wasn’t friends with several, kicking off his political career at their house.”

Here’s the USAT round-up of the dust-up.
