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.”
