Obama Proves Bush Right– Talks About "Legitimate Claims" of Hamas & Hezbollah
Well that took about 24 hours…
President George W. Bush on Appeasement
May 15, 2008–
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.
Barack Obama on Appeasement
May 16, 2008—
“The U.S. should find a mechanism whereby the disaffected have an effective outlet for their grievances, which assures them they are getting social services… The U.S. needs a foreign policy that looks at the root causes of problems and dangers. (Obama compared Hezbollah to Hamas.) Both need to be compelled to understand that they’re going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims(?)… If they decide to shift, we’re going to recognize that. That’s an evolution that should be recognized.”
Ok… “legitimate claims?”
Did Obama really say that?
What kind of legitimate claims is Obama talking about?
** It should be noted that Obama’s letter to Lebanon echoed Hezbollah’s talking points.
More… Bob Owens is making his own “legitimate claims.”
UPDATE: Noel Shephard reports on the mainstream media’s disgraceful reporting on the wonderful speech that President Bush gave to the Knesset.
UPDATE 2: Mark Steyn has words for Obama the appeaser.
