The Political front has been so dismal lately that not much makes me smile. Yesterday, I had a HUGE smile on my face. Bush hit one out of the ballpark in a speech he gave addressing members of the Knesset in Jerusalem.
Democrats were immediately defensive and all out apoplectic. John Kerry was having a cow and Obama was sure that Bush was talking about him even though the administration denied that they were. What did Bush say that had Democrats so upset? Here is the juicy excerpt that is included in the short video clip above:
"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. (Applause.)I couldn't have said it any better.
Some people suggest if the United States would just break ties with Israel, all our problems in the Middle East would go away. This is a tired argument that buys into the propaganda of the enemies of peace, and America utterly rejects it. Israel's population may be just over 7 million. But when you confront terror and evil, you are 307 million strong, because the United States of America stands with you."
When Obama screams at Bush, that he knows he's talking about him you just have to laugh. I think he doth protesteth a little too much. Sorry Democrats, you can't have it both ways. If you want to be against the war and you want to "talk" to those that are the likes of Hitler, you fall into the category of appeaser. If the appeasing shoe fits, you have to wear it, there is no other choice!!
