Appeasement Wars II: Obama Strikes Back

Obama is talking like a presidential candidate should, hitting back at McBush’s appeasement rhetoric with vigor.

From Reuters; “Democratic presidential front-runner Barack Obama said on Friday President George W. Bush's "failed policies" had strengthened U.S. enemies like Iran and Hamas. […] Responding to Bush's comment on Thursday that those who want to talk to Iran were like Nazi appeasers before the Second World War, Obama accused Bush of "exactly the kind of appalling attack that's divided the country and that alienates us from the world.”

But he wasn’t done… not by a long shot as he decided to enhance what Bush had already done; tie Bush – the president with the HIGHEST disapproval rating ever – in with McCain… thus making the argument that a vote for McCain is a vote for more Bush.

Said Obama; "If George Bush and John McCain want to have a debate about protecting the United States of America, that is a debate I am happy to have any time, any place, and that is a debate that I will win, because George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for.”

I am not in love with Dubya, but the speech that stirred Obama and the other wimps in the Democratic Party, consisted of historical facts and was totally accurate. For Obama to lie and say he had never proposed negotiating with terrorists after is a comtradiction of his statemente even posted on his website. His reaction indicates guilt and his mindset. God help our nation and the civilized worle should Obame serve the second Jimmie Carter, terrorist coddling administration!!

Obama calls this fear-mongering, and he should. People should be afraid if he's elected Prez.

Are these right-wingers who support Bush and McCain's unwillingness to talk to our enemies idiots? They call Obama a coward because he is willing to attempt a dialogue with people we don't agree with. Since when is avoiding people you don't like courageous, and making the effort to sit down and face them cowardly? They've got this all so backwards. Being willing to face your enemies takes courage. Being afraid to talk to them is cowardly.

Still trying to figure out why people are so afraid of Obama? I saw an interesting video of people in W.Va who couldn't come up with any real factual issue except that they danced around the subject of not wanting a black president. So instead let's have an old out of touch white guy who wouldn't do anything different than Dumbya. Wow that just makes no sense.
