It was only a matter of time before we say this one coming. The sitting president took a cheap shot at the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama in front of Israel’s Knesset by implying that his strategy of diplomacy aimed at nations hostile to the American policies embodied by this administration was comparable to trying to appease Hitler. WTF? So it appears after Obama ethers Bill & Hill off the face of the political landscape he’s gonna be fighting a tag-team battle with Bush & McCain for the position of Commander-In-Chief and from the looks of the preliminary barbs being thrown the Republicans will stoop at nothing to prevent him from taking that spot. Here’s an excerpt of what was said:
In a speech to Israel’s Knesset, 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.”
