Day II: Obama Throws Another Hissy Fit Over Appeaser Speech
There’s one thing Republicans forget over and over again…
Democrats are at war, too. When Republicans declared war against Al-Qaeda, Democrats declared war against Republicans.
And, over the last two years, Republicans started winning their war and Democrats started winning theirs.
Barack Obama has called President Bush’s comments on appeasement “exactly the kind of appalling attack that’s divided our country and alienates us from the rest of the world.”
Obama criticized Republican rival John McCain and President Bush for “dishonest and divisive” attacks in hinting that the Democratic presidential candidate would appease terrorists.
Obama strongly responded Friday to the comments Bush made in Israel on Thursday and McCain’s subsequent words. Obama told a town hall meeting, “That’s the kind of hypocrisy that we’ve been seeing in our foreign policy, the kind of fear-peddling, fear mongering that has prevented us from actually making us safer.”
Obama said McCain had a “naive and irresponsible belief that tough talk from Washington will somehow cause Iran to give up it’s nuclear program and support for terrorism.”
Yesterday, Obama accused President Bush of “a false political attack” after Bush warned in Israel against appeasing terrorists—early salvos in a general election campaign that’s already blazing even as the Democratic front-runner tries to sew up his party’s nomination.
The White House denied Bush had targeted Obama, who said the Republican commander in chief’s intent was obvious.
Don’t you wish just one reporter would ask how so-called “fear-mongering” has prevented us from making us safer?
