So, Dubya goes before the Israel Knesset for their 60th Anniversary and criticizes appeasement:
"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," the President said to the country's legislative body, "We have heard this foolish delusion before. 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."A common sense statement, right? Prior to WWII, Neville Chamberlain got Hitler to sign a piece of paper, then announced that he had achieved "peace in our time." History 101 showed all of us, regardless if we have a D or an R after our name, that appeasement doesn't work.
"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. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy - to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. 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."Uh, dude? If you are not an appeaser, why on earth do you take it personally when Bush criticizes appeasers?
"One thing all Americans agree on is that appeasement doesn't work. As president, I will engage in tough, principled, and direct diplomacy just like Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan before me. And of course, no American president will engage with terrorists, least of all those who seek to destroy our stalwart ally, Israel. I look forward to celebrating the 65th anniversary of Israel's independence."That was easy, wasn't it? If Bush gave a speech about drug dealers, would you release a statement saying, "how DARE you insult me!"? Of course not; you're aren't a drug dealer. So if you really aren't an appeaser, you shouldn't have willingly identified yourself with that group.
Chamberlain never used articulate words like “uhh” and “y’know”.
Some know how to fight. Some do not.
As Dana put it, This isn’t all about you!
Suck it up, Barry. You’re such a target rich environment. You won’t survive if you keep this up.
Wile E Coyote Democrats at it again!
Yeah, but Chamberlain never made Chrissy Matthews legs tingle.
Bammy said "you guys" yesterday!! Very presidential.
Again, Bush’s hypocrisy is showing:
If it’s wrong to talk with terrorist states, why is his administration talking with North Korea?
Is it because Bush believes “some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along”?
Hopefully, the GOP will respond with two questions for Obama:
Which part of the speech does he think applied to him?
Which part does he disagree with?
Neville Chamberlain got Hitler figured out less than one year after Munich when he declared war for the invasion of Poland. He also had the grace and dignity to step aside for Winston Churchill and shut up.
You have to remember that Obama is a member of the Liberal Party and Chamberlain was a member of the Conservative Party.
And John McCain is a member of the ______________ Party.
Oh, that’s a great one! HA!
I love it when paranoid libs assume everything is always about them:)
