Bush accuses “unnamed” appeasers of “appeasement”…and Obama is offended (heheh)

Update at 2:27pm!!! It seems that other Dems are also incensed by the truth…including Sen John “Khrismass in Kambodia” Kerry, Plugs (aka “Smilin’ Joe”) Biden, Nancy “Bela” Pelosi and others! It’s a regular firestorm!

While speaking to the Knesset on Israel’s 60th birthday, the President spoke in general terms about the counter-productivity of “appeasement.” Here is an excerpt from his statement…

“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.”

Obama, obviously feeling rather prickly on the subject of appeasement, jumped to the conclusion that the President was calling him out. He responded with…

“It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel’s independence to launch a false political attack.

Question is, if this was a general attack on appeasers (without mentioning Obama by name), why did Obama get his bloomers in a knot…unless, of course, he’s afraid he’s guilty of being an appeaser?
