Bush Links Obama to Appeasement: What Obama Should Have Said

What Bush said, what Obama said in response (here). Obama concludes:

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.

This is okay, but seems a little mild to me. I know, he’s cool. A young black man can’t make any sudden moves, for fear of scaring the white folk. Still, what about —

It’s astonishing to me that a President would use the opportunity to speak on a sacred occasion to Israel as a platform on which to launch a broad attack on a candidate who hasn’t even been nominated yet. But I think the American people are tired of this politics of fear, I think they know that President Bush and Vice-President Cheney took us into a war under false pretenses. I think the people want to change course in Iraq, and I think they know I am the candidate best able to deliver on that promise. So maybe that’s why I am being attacked in this outrageous manner.

  1. Bushs comments were refering to Jimmy Carter.
    He was just over there talking to Hamas. But politicians will take any and all opprotunities to excite there constituents by bashing Bush. I wonder if Obama will ever get down to some specifics about what his plans for this country are. Im tired of just hearing about “change” and other catchy, feel good words and phrases.
