I’ll bet you think this speech is about you…

Bush Knesset speech

Oh my. It seems that President Bush has managed to ruffle Barack Obama’s little peacock feathers with a recent statement he made in a speech to the Knesset on the 60th anniversary of Israel becoming a state.

First, let me present the actual statement because it is SO on the money:

“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.”

Score! Three point shot, nonetheless. So where is the controversy? Apparently Senator Obama thinks that the “Some” Bush is referring to here is none other than the Golden Boy himself.  You know… kind of like the way Warren Beatty just knew that the song “You’re so Vain” was about him — so much so that he later thanked Carly Simon for penning it. Well, so convinced is Barack Obama that Bush’s quote was a direct dig at him for his recent comments on appeasing Iran, he decided to fire up the ol’ PR machine and release this rebuttal:

“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. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy – to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the President’s extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.”

Hmmmm…. methinks the man doth protest too much. Obama’s indignant statement is pretty telling… not so much in it’s content but in the mere fact that he felt the need to make it in the first place. Liberals are constantly defining themselves unintentionally by the things they speak out against. Nothing like the sweet sound of guilty dogs barking…

Actually though, I want to thank Senator Obama for bringing this statement to the forefront of public attention. Too many of these gems uttered by the Prez go unnoticed by the MSM. It’s nice to see at least one nugget of common sense make it to the front page. Because make no mistake, these terrorists and terrorist-sponsoring countries to which Bush is referring hate Israel and they hate us for liking Israel. Their one and only goal is our extinction. Therefore, this flowery claptrap about us sitting down and making nice-nice with men who are convinced they have a divine decree to scatter our body parts to the four winds needs to be put to rest… permanently.

So thank you Senator, both of the entertainment and for helping President Bush get his message across. You fell into that one a little too easily.
