bush vs OBAMA

Bush says this in a speech at the Knesset in Israel:
"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."

Obama says from his camp:
"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."

There is this song by Carly Simon that says "Your so vain, you probably think this song is about you, your so vain, your so vain". I think it is sad when a Jr. Senator can't let an outgoing President speak in a foreign country without correcting and trying to overshadow. The President is leaving office, let the old man speak. Memo:To Obama: You are not the President. Pretty please, will you let the current one speak without getting all butt hurt when he states a few factoids. Don't take it personal. Don't be so quick on the button to let us know your true commitment to Israel. You should really keep quiet about your policies, because then we know what you stand for when you say hope and change and they aren't just pretty words creeping up our legs. I know you are more popular with the peeps right now than Bush, but not with all of us. Your Senatorial approval rating is in the toilet. OH, what did you say? It isn't because of you, you haven't been in Washington for a few years now. Got it. How about you tone down your superority complex. It's hard to hear the President with your big fat head in the way. And one more thing, did you say Nixon and Reagan? Sphincter says what?

Note to Obama,
The Iranians are terrorists.

As I wrote in my post yesterday, Obama proudly proclaims on his campaign web site that he is the only Presidential candidate that will talk with leaders of all countries, without pre-conditions. Doesn't get clearer than that. I love that Bush spoke out in the speech. And, for the Obama camp to say he is politicising foreign policy? Like Obama's constant surrender of the war in Iraq for his own political gain maybe? Like Obama claiming he'll re-negoiate NAFTA when he knows he doesn't have the authority and privately tells Canada he doesn't really mean it? Like Obama saying the National Guard is depleted?

Nikki said...

Maria, I know it was painful and I know you did it for me...your the best! :)N

Kevin, thanks for checking out the blog and sending the note to Obama...let's hope he gets it! :)N

Karen your comment was so great I feel like keeping it at the top of the comment column! All points are perfect and back at ya Barack :)N

Thinking Sage said...

Well I don't particularly love Bush but this the alternatives the last 2 elections and this one coming are far worse than him. Obama should hush but then that isn't in his nature, the best speech reader to come along in a long time.

Mike said...

So Bush is saying that a country that invades another country with no justifiable cause is a terrorist? And that you either stand up and fight against them or you are an appeaser?

What point was he trying to make again?

The funniest part was when he talked about being "repeatedly discredited by history." I think that qualifies as irony.

Nikki said...

Mike...I suppose it would be the justifiable cause that is in dispute...and that argument could take forever. yep the US is a terrorist nation. :)N

Incognito said...

Just proves not only how naive he is but what a BSer he is! God please, don't let him be the next prez!

awww c'mon now it doesn't take much more than an IQ of 10 to read between the lines. having endorsed mccain, and being the ass that he is, of course bushie would mix politics with foreign policy at the right time. of course he was attacking obama. since clinton would "obliterate iran", who else is left? obama was right to respond right away, from a political standpoint anyway, and not let the GOP define him. and creating doubt in the jewish community over obama's commitment to israel is necessary politics as well.

interesting how 6 million jews carry more weight in this country than 35 million black people, or 40 million irish people, or most any other larger group of people in this country. must be the money...

Nikki said...

Hey bolpf, again thanks for chiming in! I love opposing views. I say good for Bush for calling out the pansy Obama! Bush is showing some balls and it is nice to see. Yes the Jewish vote is important because it is the democrats that have been giving lip service to Jews making them feel cozy in a party that shows more support to Palestine. Funny how Jews have more support from the right and vote left. :)N

The terrorist monkey can not be negotiated with. The only reason to maybe talk to Ahmadamadmonkey in say maybe Switzerland is to provoke him by debating his ideology and criticizing his hatred. Force him to say lots of stupid and insane things which would be widely publicized thus educating more people to his ideology's insanity. This, I am quite sure, Obama would never do.

Ouch, Obama and the poor little Dems were hit a little too close to home by what GW said. It's one of the best things Bush has ever said. Bravo! And he didn't even have to mention the Dhimmicrats or any body's name.

So sure, then he folded in Saudi Arabia, but what he said in Israel almost makes that OK.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
appease the appeasers

don't embarrass them
by calling them appeasers

absurd thought -
God of the Universe said
have a sit down with Hitler

he should have been sweet-talked
he had goodness within

Appeasement Talk Bothers Appeasers

Help Halt Terrorism Now!
