Some seem to think we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We’ve heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939 an American senator declared Lord if I could have only talked to Hitler all of this could have been avoided. We have an obligation to call this what it is, the false comfort of appeasement…
And Barack Obama responded to the President’s address in Israel with this,
After almost eight years I did not think I could be surprised about anything George Bush says, but I was wrong the President did something that presidents don’t do, and that is launch a political attack for the domestic market in front of a foreign delegation
Here’s a news flash for liberal idiots (Barack Obama included), most agree with the President talking with Hitler in 1939 wasn’t going to avert WWII. The President nicely framed appeasement within the context of WWII where it was tried and failed.
Surely, his declaration in Israel, America’s staunchest ally in the world, would sooth the anxiety that little country endures in a region that has continued to suggest she is completely or partly at fault for the aggression directed against her. The President’s address was a reassuring promise from big brother that no country’s bullying tactics will be tolerated by the U.S.
If Barack Obama was honorable he would have agreed and declared to the news media the President absolutely correct. Doing so would have presented himself in opposition of appeasement in line with the President’s sentiments.
Instead, his whining and screaming of fault has affirmed Barack Obama to be one of the guys the President fears childish enough to embrace appeasement.
If the President’s comments were bait, the half black dude swallowed it, hook, line and sinker.
The whole thing could have been mitigated and three days worth of news reports completely eliminated with the simple confirmation that appeasement doesn’t work. But that’s not the way Democratic politics works. Democrats don’t get votes by making sense.
As in every aspect of the political correctness scourge that clouds over the United States, manufactured outrage, non-existent assault with feigned indignation, and contrived resentment are the tools which fill their emotionally charged vote getting quiver.
Thoughtful rumination might even send supporters to the other side. If given a chance, feed the fire, and if one doesn’t exist, build it yourself.
Obama’s resume is so thin, his experience so deficit, and his character so weak the best that he can do is whine about rhetoric and lie about the current president’s comments. He can’t articulate in clear language what he stands for and why his positions are better, but he can certainly assure us all, I promise change!
Change from sensible cogitation to emotionally unstable policy I presume.
Mr. Obama has a law degree and other qualities which make him well qualified for that ignoble occupation where purveyors make tons of money convincing illegal immigrants to lie about work related injuries to screw insurance companies that kill a small company’s Workman’s Comp multiplier, but are these really the characteristics we want abundant in our Commander In Chief?
